min should be \min (never use math italic for multi-letter identifiers) and b^{'} should be b' and no need for \substack if you only have one line in the subscript. but other than that, the equation fits in a two column IEEE document: \documentclass{IEEEtran} \usepackage{amsmath} \begin{document} \noindent X\dotfill X \begin{equation} \label{eq:3} \min ...

If I understand well your problem, you should use the cuted package (from the sttools bundle) and its strip environment. Here is an example: \documentclass[twocolumn]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{ebgaramond} \usepackage[frenchb]{babel} \usepackage{cuted, xcolor} \usepackage{graphicx, caption, threeparttable} ...

You set \setlength\columnsep{40pt} on line 5 so you get 40pt of space between the columns

Floats in two-column documents don't really work or stick to columns the way the author intends it to. As such, you typically need to do some legwork to bend things your way. Below I've pushed the second "float" a little further in the code and delayed its output using afterpage. The allows it to be placed into the second page before all the roll-over text ...

h works in two column just as one column \begin{figure}[htp] \centering \includegraphics[width=\ilenwidth]{..} \caption{..} \end{figure} will make the float appear "here" ie mid column if it fits at that point.

I've noticed that the subscript material below the summation symbols is wide enough to extend to the left and right of the summation symbols. TeX inserts extra whitespace so as to avoid any overlap with the surrounding. If you're really pressed for space, you could use the macro \smashoperator (or its relative, \smathoperator[r]) to suppress this whitespace. ...

If you have got only "short" pieces of text in your additional column, you could use a single column document and then \marginline{Additional Text Here} within the text. \documentclass{scrartcl} \begin{document} \marginline{Lorem!}Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec a diam lectus. Sed sit amet ipsum mauris. Maecenas congue ligula ...

I encountered the same problem editing a document under REVTeX. Thanks for pointing out that only position [t] is recognized under the {figure*} environment. A working solution is offered by using the \onecolumngrid and \twocolumngrid commands \documentclass[twocolumn,...]{revtex4-1} \begin{document} ... \onecolumngrid \begin{figure}[h] ...

The most basic solution I can think of is to use a single table environment and to place the two tabular environments, along with their respective \caption and \label statements, in separate minipage environments. \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{table} \footnotesize % better than "\fontsize{8}{8}\selectfont" ...

Working through the requirements here, including the business about the fixes for the kernel, I think that everything does work if you take things a bit at a time % Should be part of the kernel \RequirePackage{fixltx2e} \documentclass[twoside]{article} % Required by the OP for 'other things' \usepackage{dblfloatfix} % For filler \usepackage{lipsum} ...

[More of a comment, but to move off the unanswered list] With the standard document classes, loading dblfloatfix would allow some flexibility here. However, as you are using REVTeX that does not work (you can load the package but it has no effect). The best that you can do is miss out the positional arguments entirely: LaTeX will then at least be able to ...

Reducing the value of \tabcolsep -- the parameter that governs the amount of intercolumn whitespace -- from the default value of 6pt to 2pt, combined with eliminating the whitespace entirely to the left of the first column and to the right of the final column, succeeds in fitting the table into the available space. Two additional comments: (i) You should ...

You have a \checkboxeshook command that allows to modify the list parameters used by the checkboxes environment: \documentclass[a4paper, 11pts]{exam} \usepackage{multicol, setspace} \usepackage{textcomp, booktabs,colortbl} \usepackage[table]{xcolor} \setlength\columnsep{40pt} \onehalfspacing \renewcommand\checkboxeshook{\setlength\leftmargin{0cm}} ...
