AUX file extension - TeX/LaTeX auxiliary references
What is aux file? How to open aux files?
File type specification:
The aux file extension is mainly related to the TeX/Latex typesetting language. An *.aux file contains auxiliary references.
Instead of visually formatting your text, you enter your manuscript text intertwined with TeX commands in a plain text file. You then run TeX to produce formatted output, such as a PDF file.
Thus, in contrast to standard word processors, your document is a separate file that does not pretend to be a representation of the final typeset output, and so can be easily edited and manipulated.
