Sure, why not. Your use, your choice. Depending on the specific application, you might consider using \xdef take make the (expanded) redefinition global or \protected@xdef to accommodate "strange constructions" in names...

I would use different commands, one to hold the name and another to set the name. In a package, it is a common practice to use an external version of the command (\name) to set the value of an internal macro (\@name). This is how \author and \title work in the article class. \makeatletter \newcommand{\name}[1]{\gdef\@name{#1}} \makeatother But it would ...

You mentioned that you hand-edited all math to sans text. I don't recommend doing this: it violates the separation of church and state content and style.1 If you want/need sans-serif math, use a sans-serif math font. They are few, far between, and somewhat limited in terms of glyphs/symbols, but they do exist. For simplicity, I have used sansmath here, but ...

From top of my head I can mention few apps(1, 2, 3). I think all of these apps have Dropbox integration for syncing. Some allow you to compile your document on the device, some using internet servers and some, are just editors. But perhaps, you can have better answers looking at this Q/A in this very website.

Have a look at http://ctan.sharelatex.com/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/physics/physics.pdf 2.5 Derivatives I use it and i am very happy with this package. EDIT: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{physics} \usepackage{amssymb} \begin{document} \begin{align} \left(\int\limits_{-\infty}^\infty e^{-x^2} \dd{x} \right)^2 ...

LaTeX can be hard to get started with. I can't comment on assistive technology, but — if a good LaTeX editor with syntax hilighting (or a WYS IWYG editor) will do — then I can give suggestions for how to get better output, and to write it more easily. Here are a few pointers which might help you to speed up your workflow, or at least get more ...

I just ran a workshop on LaTeX for postgraduate students. Here is the list of packages which I recommended they all load in every document: % This is, I think, the right answer. This is not to say that I did not tell them about packages - I did. Nor is it to say that I made no recommendations - I did. But I made conditional recommendations. I wanted them ...

There is no technical reason not to mix utf8 text and LaTeX in one .bib file. Biblatex, with biber, handles both fine. Ease of input, readability, and portability may count in favour of various approaches. For some fonts, especially fixed width ones, hyphens, en-dashes, and em-dashes are hard to distinguish. Some characters are hard to input, especially ...

hyperref is not necessary. You can specify the metadata directly provided you are using pdfTeX. For example: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \pdfinfo{% /Title (Great Title) /Subject (interesting subject) /Keywords (word 1, word 2, word 3) /Author (A. N. Author) /Producer ...

Assuming that the end product is a pdf file I recommend using hyperref and setting its pdfcreator option. You just need to add \usepackage{hyperref} \hypersetup{pdfcreator=Some external code} to your preamble. This sets the Content Creator attribute in the resulting pdf file. This is very unobtrusive because appears only in the PDF file and it is NOT ...
