Posted on December 3, 2014 by There and back again Feed

Nitpicking on Čech cohomology notation

Posted on November 24, 2014 by On music, computing and math Feed

A long time ago I wrote about how to produce Čech cohomology groups in LaTeX, while in the previous post there is the Čech-to-derived spectral sequence making an appearance, and when I took the first screenshot in that blogpost I realised there was something wrong with the positioning of the exponent.

Adding an equation to the table of contents

Posted on November 23, 2014 by On music, computing and math Feed

Next week I’ll be giving a lecture on spectral sequences in algebraic geometry, and in the notes I’m preparing I wanted to put the spectral sequence below the title of the corresponding section in the table of contents.

Keeping a track of what TeX meetings are going on can be tricky. To help us all keep up, Karl Berry has just set up a new mailing list: TeX meetings. The idea is simple: it gives everyone a single place to post notices of meetings upcoming, and so to track what is happening in […]

2014-11-15 LaTeX-narrow-to-environment

Posted on November 15, 2014 by Content AND Presentation Feed

Hitting C-x n C-h gives a short overview of what narrowing commands are there available in Emacs. Unfortunately, narrow-to-defun does not (as I hoped) narrow to the current environment in LaTeX. This is Emacs, however, so why not fix this problem?

Posted on November 11, 2014 by On music, computing and math Feed

Présentation des auteurs dans la bibliographie finale

Posted on November 3, 2014 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Dans une bibliographie finale, avec le style bibliographique verbose, le premier nom d'auteur est affiché sous la forme « Nom, Prénom », tandis que les autres noms d'auteur d'une même entrée sont affichés sous la forme « Prénom Nom ». On pourrait vouloir avoir systématiquement la forme « Nom, Prénom ». Comment faire ?

You might be able to come up with some sophisticated regular expression, which removes the right value in every row. Otherwise, the only way is to use another program or to ...
