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

    Snow leopard + wordpress + latex problem

    Posted on by

    Ever since I’ve upgraded to Snow Leopard I’ve been having problems with the webserver. At first there were the ‘obvious’ problems : mysql-connection lost and php-error message. These were swiftly dealt with using the excellent Snow Leopard, Apache, PHP, MySQL and WordPress! advice from ‘tady’. Right now, access to this blog is extremely slow (and… Read more »

    math2.0-setup : final comments

    Posted on by

    Last time I promised to come back explaining how to set-up LaTeX-support, figuring I had to tell you about a few modifications I had to make in order to get Latexrender run on my mac… A few google searches made it plain how out of touch I am on these matters (details below). But first,… Read more »

    Writing & Blogging

    Posted on by

    Terry Tao is reworking some of his better blogposts into a book, to be published by the AMS (here’s a preliminary version of the book “What’s New?”) After some thought, I decided not to transcribe all of my posts from last year (there are 93 of them!), but instead to restrict attention to those articles… Read more »

    thanks for linking

    Posted on by

    I’ve re-installed the Google analytics plugin on december 22nd, so it is harvesting data for three weeks only. Still, it is an interesting tool to gain insight in the social networking aspect of math-blogging, something I’m still very bad at… Below the list of all blogs referring at least 10 times over this last three… Read more »

    working archive plugin, please!

    Posted on by

    Over the last two weeks Ive ported all old neverendingbooks-post from the last 4 years to a nearly readable format. Some tiny problems remain : a few TeX-heavy old posts are still in $…$ format rather than LaTeXrender-compatible (but Ill fix this soon), a few links may turn out to be dead (still have to… Read more »

    mathML versus LaTeXRender

    Posted on by

    No math today. If you’re interested in the latest on noncommutative geometry, head over to the NCG-blog where Alain Connes has a post on Time. Still, Alain’s post is a good illustration of what Ill be rambling about TeX and how to use it in a blog. If you’re running a math-blog, sooner or later… Read more »

    mathML and work ahead

    Posted on by

    It has been a difficult design decision, but I‚Äôm going to replace the LaTeXRender WordPress Plugin for mathML as the default TeX-interface for NeverEndingBooks. I will keep LaTeXRender on standby as I may have to use exotic packages or commands that iTeX does not deliver, but for most math-related posts, MathML will do the job… Read more »

    command line interface

    Posted on by

    Way back in 1999 I read Neal Stephenson’s pamphlet In the Beginning ! Was the Command Line and decided I should and would have Linux running on my clamshell iBook. Needless to say this was (a) a foolish idea and (b) not entirely trivial in those dark OS 9-days. Still, I somehow managed with the… Read more »

    Latexrender and dvonn boards

    Posted on by

    In order to blog a bit about Dvonn-strategy, I made myself a simple Dvonn LaTeX-template which works very well on paper but which gets mutilated by Latexrender, for example the first situation of the looks like $~\xymatrix@=.3cm @!C @R=.7cm{ & & \Black{2} \connS & & \bull{d}{5} \conn & & \bull{e}{5} \conn & & \bull{f}{5} \conn… Read more »

    latexrender plugin for wordpress under tiger

    Posted on by

    Promises and pie-crusts are made to be broken, a wiser man once said. Still, promises have a much longer life-span and sometimes their real content becomes redundant over time. A year ago, I promised to document how I got the LaTeXRender Plugin for WordPress working under OS X. The procedure consisted of some trial-and-error operations,… Read more »

    Clearly, an extended version of Markdown including LaTeX-commands would be useful for mathematicians and surely I’m not the first to think about this. In fact, I found a somewhat pompous text New adventures if hifi text by someone claiming to have done precisely that (though he doesn’t give much details nor post a version of… Read more »

    tiger days 1

    Posted on by

    It should be really day 2 but yesterday evening I was a bit overoptimistic and tried to get MySQL, Ruby, Rails & Tracks installed and in the process totally wrecked my Ruby-system (and probably a few things more). Besides, I found out that the _Carbon Copy Cloner_ work-around doesn\’t really work (that is, one canNOT… Read more »

    Tomorrow I’ll give my last class of the semester (year?) so it is about time to think about things to do (such as preparing the courses for the “master program on noncommutative geometry”) and changes to make to this weblog (now that it passed the 25000 mark it is time for something different). In the… Read more »

    One way to increase the blogshare-value of this site might be to give readers more of what they want. In fact, there is an excellent guide for those who really want to increase traffic on their site called 26 Steps to 15k a Day.

    quiver pictures in wordpress

    Posted on by

    Having latexrender available, one can edit the _class.latexrender.php_ file to include additional LaTeX-packages. For example adding the lines string .= ‘\usepackage{xy}\n’; string .= ‘\xyoption{all}\n’; string .= ‘\newcommand{\vtx}[1]{*+[o][F-]{\scriptscriptstyle #1}}\n’; makes it possible to include quiver-pictures in this weblog. Observe the double blackslash before newcommand, a single backslash would produce a new-line and fail to define something.

    LatexRender plugin for wordpress under Panther

    Posted on by

    After three days of desperate trial-and-error I seem to have managed to get latexrender working for wordpress under Mac OS X. First things first : if you only want to include some symbols in your blog-posts the easiest way to do so is to use mimetex and the corresponding wordpress-plugin written by Steve Mayer.
