The "AUC" part stands for Aalborg Universitetscenter and the "TeX"
part, well, for TeX.

That's the top-level file of a multi-file LaTeX document.  It's the
file one would supply as an argument to the latex executable when
compiling from the command line.  If your LaTeX document consists of
only a single file then it is this very file.
