One part of my "Geometrie und Topologie" book is a symbol table that allows students to quickly find the right words when they don't understand a symbol. This makes searching via the index / Wikipedia / Google / math.SE much easier. But currently it doesn't look very nice.

The complete sources of the document are here.

Working Example

The following example example compiles almost (except for references and page numbers) to the symbol table I currently have:

Question

I would like to know how to make this symbol table "nicer".

One way I could imagine how to improve it, would be by aligning the content on the first page below the section "Gruppen". But I don't want to restrict answers to this.

What I've tried

tabular

I've tried to use the tabular environment:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% Mengenoperationen                                                 %
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\section*{Mengenoperationen}
\begin{tabular}{ll}
    $A^C$           & Komplement der Menge $A$\\
    $\mathcal{P}(M)$& Potenzmenge von $M$\\
    $\overline{M}$  & Abschluss der Menge $M$\\
    $\partial M$    & Rand der Menge $M$\\
    $M^\circ$       & Inneres der Menge $M$\\
    $A \times B$    & Kreuzprodukt zweier Mengen\\
    $A \subseteq B$ & Teilmengenbeziehung\\
    $A \subsetneq B$& echte Teilmengenbeziehung\\
    $A \setminus B$ & $A$ ohne $B$\\
    $A \cup B$      & Vereinigung\\
    $A \dcup B$     & Disjunkte Vereinigung\\
    $A \cap B$      & Schnitt
\end{tabular}

but then I get this:

enter image description here

itemize

\section*{Mengenoperationen}\leavevmode
\begin{itemize}
    \itemsep0em 
    \item[$A^C$]            Komplement der Menge $A$\\
    \item[$\mathcal{P}(M)$] Potenzmenge von $M$\\
    \item[$\overline{M}$]   Abschluss der Menge $M$\\
    \item[$\partial M$]     Rand der Menge $M$\\
    \item[$M^\circ$]        Inneres der Menge $M$\\
    \item[$A \times B$]     Kreuzprodukt zweier Mengen\\
    \item[$A \subseteq B$]  Teilmengenbeziehung\\
    \item[$A \subsetneq B$] echte Teilmengenbeziehung\\
    \item[$A \setminus B$]  $A$ ohne $B$\\
    \item[$A \cup B$]       Vereinigung\\
    \item[$A \dcup B$]      Disjunkte Vereinigung\\
    \item[$A \cap B$]       Schnitt
\end{itemize}

results in much too high spacing:

What about actually using a tabular environment for the purpose of alignment? I used the nomencl package for my thesis, it turned out quite nice: tinyurl.com/oqny954 –  Holene Mar 17 at 19:04

an obvious approach is to align the symbols and their meanings in two (tabbed) columns, as often done in an index of notation in a textbook. that would avoid "mixing" of meaning info in with the symbols in the left-hand column. i'd also suggest setting the meaning column ragged right, to avoid uneven spacing, which makes the output hard to read and which i find especially annoying in an already "spacy" context like this. –  barbara beeton Mar 17 at 19:06
    
@Holene I've tried tabular, but somehow this seems not to work with two columns (see above). Do you know how to fix this? –  moose Mar 17 at 19:16

@moose: How about some kind of an index or a glossary, there are certainly packages, that could handle such a feature, e.g. "Symbol A some description", where "some description" replaces the page reference, perhaps as a link, jumping to some definition of the symbol? The advantage of 'index' or 'glossary' packages is, that they already have a two (or even more) columned layout. –  Christian Hupfer Mar 17 at 19:21
    
@ChristianH. I have tried that. If I remember it correctly, I've switched to this more manual solution, because some texts are quite long (see last two sections). So I can't only have a double column style. But on the other hand, for most of the content a double column design works quite well. –  moose Mar 17 at 19:27

You could use the xtab package and its environment xtabular. It functions very much like the longtable environment does, in that it can break across columns and pages; however, it's also compatible with twocolumn mode, whereas longtable is not.

I suggest you adjust the column width of the first table column (the symbol column) so that it's just wide enough to contain the widest symbolic entry within each section. Then, adjust the second column so that the entire table is as wide as \columnwidth. Given the narrow measure of the second column within a table, "full" justification isn't advisable. Instead, use \RaggedRight (provided by the package ragged2e), which allows hyphenation. (In contrast, \raggedright does not allow hyphenation.)

The example shows only the first page of your larger example.
