comment Using negative coordinates in EPS file with XeLaTeX
The quick work around mentioned in the thread above is to remove the comment line %%Creator: MetaPost from each .eps file that MP produces. I find that this bash one-liners does this nicely (but use with caution!) for i in *.eps; do grep -v MetaPost $i >temp.txt && mv temp.txt $i; done

comment Some table references sometimes not working
Do the tables all need to be in floats? If it's just table after table, you could dispense with the table environments and just put the tabulars where you want them, and use \captionof to make the captions (from capt-of or caption package).

comment Can anyone identify what package was used to create these simple math diagrams
Looking at their website, they appear to use Matlab for many of the figures in the second part of the book, so one would guess they are using one of (the many) Matlab to TeX tools. You could try emailing them and asking.

comment Draw block diagram with a switch
@JamesUnion "overkill" is a matter of taste of course, but Metapost grows on you as a language; and there's not really much more complexity in the language than I've shown above. If you want something simple, buy a copy of PowerPoint or Omnigraffle (or similar) and push boxes around with your mouse, export the results as PDF and use \includegraphics to get the picture into LaTeX.

comment PGFPlots: How to draw a label at a zero of a function?
Is there some reason that values given are wrong? Given a=1, b=-4, and c=-7, I would expect 2±√11, approx 2±3.316625

comment Creating a Polar Grid with Tikz
What would be the best way to move the yticklabels off the grid? yticklabel style={font=\footnotesize, anchor=north west} makes them a bit too far away...

Even a metapost diehard like me might have to learn pgfplots a bit better!

comment R assignment operator (“<-”)
It looks much better if you make the whole assignment into a math formula. \item[$y \gets c(1,2,3)$] blah blah....

Assuming you have MacTeX installed, open up a bash prompt, navigate to the folder with the ps files and try for f in *.ps; do epstopdf $i; done
