comment How to add last name to page number in header?
With \fancyfoot{} nothing goes in those brackets. unless you want to put something there. If you don't want anything there, they should be left blank. If you want something in your footer, you put it in there. \thepage is a macro. You don't put in the page number, no, LaTeX will print whatever the correct page number is. The function of \lipsum is provided by the lipsum package and it prints the text of lorem ipsum (google it if you're unfamiliar). You can see that our original poster includes the appropriate pagestyle in their example. \pagestyle{fancy}

comment How do I align piecewise functions?
I wouldn't say "must", there are other alternatives, including variants on the cases theme - but you are right that this is surely the best solution here: +1

comment Mysterious type of Omega
But, I don't understand you, why are you so certain you need that font, it's like requesting exactly this e - no other. It's still the same symbol, whichever font it is. There're just minor differences between fonts, which are up to the designer of the font. The only way to get exactly the same symbol is to use exactly the same font and it's almost impossible for us to know which font has been used - the font may not even be available to the general public, it may be the publisher's own in-house font. But it doesn't matter. ω is the same symbol as that, it doesn't need to be identical

comment Creating a table
Not strictly relevant and others may feel differently, but it's a little unhelpful if you don't include your preamble in full in your MWE. This is partly because your problem could be there (I doubt it's there here, but you might have a package clash or something), and partly because providing a full, proper MWE allows others to use your code and play with it and then they can reproduce what you're seeing and experiment with solutions without having to guess what you have, or rewrite your .tex file from clues in the question. Anyway, not such a big deal in this case, but maybe next time?

comment Tabular error: \begin{tabular}{ c | c | c }
Well for one thing, I'm not really sure you should have redefined \and and \or like this. See: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/28274/…

comment Writing limits of integration
The impression I got from 'I would like to draw the line after an integral has been "solved,"' was that the original poster desired a vertical line, but had been unable to produce one for their example, and so had substituted a ]. That's why I answered the question the way I did. However, this answer is a very good answer to the question as posed and a perfectly plausible interpretation of it.

comment New map file with LaTeX
I didn't, no. I have now re-checked my installation and made sure all of the fonts are in the right place. In the first instance I hadn't followed the manual correctly, but everything's fixed now. Thank you all :)

comment New map file with LaTeX
The fonts are sitting there in my texmf directory. As far as I know they're installed correctly, I'm not sure why latex and pdflatex are having trouble accessing them without the \pdfmapfile command. In that directory, by the way, is where cbgreek-full.map is located

comment New map file with LaTeX
Okay, thanks, how exactly can I do that, do you know? Also, I have the package installed, let me see if loading helps.
