I have a table with many rows, but only a single column. The column itself is a coefficient for an algorithm, hence just a number.
Currently, when typeset with the
longtable package it looks somewhat suboptimal. I wish to typeset it so that the table appears to have two columns with semantics similar to a two-column document layout (text goes top to bottom, left column to right column).
While I could try to emulate the effect manually (by having a two columned table) this would require an immense amount of manual adjustment every time the pagination is changed.
Is there a way of going about this?
Update I've attached an example of what I mean (the image is taken from an old scientific paper). The data itself spans two pages (only the first of which is shown).
