Why I like TikZ's Math library

Kpym | Friday, 13 March 2015

Ford circles

I'm not a texpert. I'm a mathematician, that started programming on BASIC, then moved to C, C++, Java, PHP, Python and finally to JavaScript. Moving from one of this languages to another is easy, up to some syntactic sugar, it is time consuming but not so hard. I have never been able, nor attracted, to be honest, to program on TeX.

And for this reason when I discovered the math library, introduced with TikZ 3.0 almost a year ago, that allows us to use a syntax close to ordinary programming...

LaTeX Tricks (XV)

Luca Merciadri | Sunday, 8 February 2015

After having looked at about 150 StackExchange pages of 50 topics (that sums up to about 7500 topics' names), I give you, in this article and in the next issue, the most interesting topics' answers to my eyes. Needless to say that

  • I did not read each topic on StackExchange,
  • I selectioned the ones I decided to read based on the topics' respective titles,
  • The topics that have not been considered here are not necessarily uninteresting! Moreover, I did not find a lot of uninteresting topics.
We will first begin by two additions in regard...

LaTeX Tricks (X)

Luca Merciadri | Sunday, 25 January 2015

This is the Xth edition of my TUGboat `Tips & Tricks.' This time, we shall first see how to write `dancing text,' roman numerals, how to draw under and over braces on same elements, and how to display aligned (in)equations systems. We will then end by discussing on BibLaTeX and Biber, which constitute a promising alternative to BibTeX.

LaTeX Tricks (IX)

Luca Merciadri | Friday, 8 August 2014

We describe here how to

  1. display date & time in a standard format,
  2. write (draw) dash integrals,
  3. number rows in tables,
  4. use unhabitual punctuation marks: interrobang and percontation point,
  5. draw dependency arrows,
  6. distinguish between ConTeXt, LuaTeX, teTeX and XeTeX.

Note: I will use the word ‘Context’ for point 4. Here, ‘Context’ is to be taken in its first sense, not as ‘ConTeXt’.

The last section gives a LaTeX-related crossword puzzle.

BetterBib is now here to help you out with these tasks.
