How can I tell LaTex to group by thousands such as a large number like this: 1 000 000 000 instead of 1000000000

Thanks

I don't think you can tell it that, because as far as LaTeX is concerned there is nothing special about numbers. You can do it manually, just type $1\,000\,000\,000$ or $1\;000\;000\;000$ or $1\:000\:000\:000$, depending on your preference. Or use scientific notation ($10^9$), of course

Examples:
  • $1\,000\,000\,000$
    [itex] 1\,000\,000\,000 [/itex]
  • $1\;000\;000\;000$
    [itex] 1\;000\;000\;000 [/itex]
  • $1\:000\:000\:000$
    [itex] 1\:000\:000\:000 [/itex]
  • $10^9$
    [itex] 10^9 [/itex]

This can be accomplished by using the numprint package. Check out http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macr...trib/numprint/ for details.
