wplatex’ sweet revenge : wp+MathJax> ePub
In the early days of mathblogging, one was happy to get LaTeXRender working. Some years later, the majority of mathblogs were using the, more userfriendly, wplatex plugin to turn LaTeXcode into pngimages. Today, everyone uses MathJax which works with modern CSS and web fonts instead of equation images, so equations scale with surrounding text at […]

From WordPress to ePublishing (1)
Perhaps, the tips and tricks I did receive to turn a selection of wordpressposts into a proper ePubfile may be of use to others, so I will describe the procedure here in some detail. It makes a difference whether or not some of the posts contain TeX. This time, I’ll sketch the process for nonLaTeX…

eBook – ePub : comments
There were some great comments by Peter before this post was taken offline. So, here they are, once again.

eBook ‘geometry and the absolute point’ v0.1
In preparing for next year’s ‘seminar noncommutative geometry’ I’ve converted about 30 posts to LaTeX, centering loosely around the topics students have asked me to cover : noncommutative geometry, the absolute point (aka the field with one element), and their relation to the Riemann hypothesis. The idea being to edit these posts thoroughly, add much…

Penrose tilings and noncommutative geometry
Penrose tilings are aperiodic tilings of the plane, made from 2 sort of tiles : kites and darts. It is well known (see for example the standard textbook tilings and patterns section 10.5) that one can describe a Penrose tiling around a given point in the plane as an infinite sequence of 0’s and 1’s,…

changes (ahead)
In view or recents events & comments, some changes have been made or will be made shortly : categories : Sanitized the plethora of wordpresscategories to which posts belong. At the moment there are just 5 categories : ‘stories’ and ‘web’ (for all posts with low mathcontent) and three categories ‘level1’, ‘level2’ and ‘level3’, loosely…

Link problems : Markdown versus latex2wp.py
As John Baez (and hopefully others) noticed most links here on NeB are now screwed up. For years I’ve used the Markdown syntax to include links in posts (that is something like [this is what you see](and here is the URL)). NeB used an older version ( Version 1.0.1k) of php Markdown to convert these…

Return to LaTeX
To most mathematicians, a good LaTeXfrontend (such as TeXShop for Macusers) is the crucial tool to get the work done. We use it to draft ideas, write papers and courses, or even to take notes during lectures. However, after six years of blogging, my own LaTeXroutine became rusty. I rarely open a new texdocument, and…
