As an occupation, I'm a mathematical physicist, studying string theory and quantum field theory.

I've developed as a hobby a few Cocoa (Touch) apps. The largest one so far is spires.app, which manages articles and metadata downloaded from the arXiv eprint server, the inspire database, and the journal websites.

I'm also interested in many other things, which is why I ask questions in various StackExchange sites ...

comment How can I replicate affine Dynkin diagrams in Kac's textbook?
Amazing!!! Thank you very much for the TeX code. Is it OK for me to include them into the paper on this subject? Well I don't know whether and when it ever becomes complete, though. They look beautiful!

comment How can I replicate affine Dynkin diagrams in Kac's textbook?
This is fantastic, thank you very much @Andrew. As for the quadruple arrow, looking at the book carefully, it might be that the publisher added lines by hand after TeX typesetting is done ...

Thank you too! It's very nice and simple for linear diagrams.

comment How can I replicate affine Dynkin diagrams in Kac's textbook?
@Antal, it's OK if it looks the same; but I'm also interested how he or the typesetter did it long time ago when it was published.

comment How can I replicate affine Dynkin diagrams in Kac's textbook?
@Andrew: I'm fine with that. If the spacing is nicer, that would be even better. I really liked Kac's "minimalism", in the sense that he used only what's simply available in AMSTeX, like \circ, \cdots, standard minus sign, and \Leftarrow. So I'd like to replicate that.

comment How can I replicate affine Dynkin diagrams in Kac's textbook?
That's not my essential point; my point is to reproduce what Kac has in his textbook. I changed the title of the question after @Joseph Wright gave me the comment. Indeed I didn't express my intent correctly.
