R includes a powerful and flexible system (Sweave) for creating dynamic reports and reproducible research using LaTeX.
Sweave enables the embedding of R code within LaTeX documents to generate a PDF file that includes narrative and analysis, graphics, code, and the results of computations.

-You can use knitr rather than classic Sweave for weaving Rnw files.
Rnw stands for R NoWeb files. They have to be processed by Sweave i.e. code chunks are processed with R and results inluded into a LaTeX file that itself has to be processed by LaTeX oder PDFLaTeX.
Workflow R Markdown is a format for writing reproducible, dynamic reports with R. Use it to embed R code and results into slideshows, pdfs, html documents.
They use different syntax to wrap up R code in the input document, and the results returned from R are marked up according to the syntax of the output document.
You'll use substantially the same structure to write a document using markdown or \( \LaTeX \), that is, with a .Rmd or .Rnw file type.t
