I'm just a single point on a complex plane. I'm not the strongest species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. I always feel restless despite being in the safe zone. You can't teach me anything, but you can stimulate me to think! I am a detail-oriented analyst and interested in almost everything. Consistency, optimization, best-practice, & perfection are always my first priority in mind! Therefore by my questions & answers you'll fully recognize me. I can tell you more but then I have to kill you.

I distribute my rep in bounties as spending money for my & your pleasure is more meaningful than saving money in a bank & abandoning it unused.

"If you're an underdog, mentally disabled, physically disabled, if you don't fit in, if you're not as pretty as the others, you can still be a hero, read TEXBook!"

"Motivation isn't enough. If you've an idiot & you motivate him, now you've a motivated idiot."

Learning (La)TeX, PSTricks, & PGF/TikZ is similar to learning how to swim or drive a car. You don’t get the full benefit by watching someone else do it. Your own fingers must get involved.

Don't be lukewarm! If you cannot be the best, be the worst!

Beauty without intelligence is a masterpiece painted on a toilet paper.

For every problem, there is always a solution that is simple, neat, but wrong.

Best practices

  1. Use pdflatex \input{filename} instead of pdflatex filename.
  2. Don't specify the file extension in \includegraphics.
  3. Divide your project into a main & smaller input files & compile the main with pdflatex.
  4. Put each code snippet 4 either drawing a diagram or making a table into a standalone input file & compile it to produce a PDF.
  5. Define global macros 4 often-used materials, put them into a separate package thereby changing the macros in one place will effect the whole document.
  6. Remove unnecessary packages.
  7. Don't mix different series, families, font size, & shapes, ESPECIALLY IN ONE SENTENCE.
  8. Obey.

I wasted much time to locate the log function in TikZ. It is actually named as log10.

comment Tikz: how to plot arcsec and arccos?
@ThomasF.Sturm: But if we restrict its domain then the inverse is available. As a layman, I have no idea what \arcsec (and arccos) differs from \sec^{-1} (and \cos^{-1}), could you elaborate more? In my mind, they are just different in notation. Probably you are talking about reciprocal rather than inverse. :-)

comment Tikz: how to plot arcsec and arccos?
XOR, XOL, YOT, YOB are offsets which are multiple of DeltaX and DeltaY, respectively. They are important to make the axes look more exotic (IMHO).

comment Is there an easy way to generate weighted vertices in graphs?
You minimal working example should be compilable. You also need to provide \documentclass ... \end{document}.

comment Is there an easy way to generate weighted vertices in graphs?
Do you want the weight label inside a circle of a node and the letter label outside the circle of a node?

To make it on topic, use PSTricks as explained in my answer.

comment How to number the letters of a sentence?
How many digits does the number for the last letter in TeXBook take? Using more than 2 (perhaps 3) digits per letter will make the inter-letter space too big.

Note that the small circles are not drawn on the top but they clip the image with even-odd rule.

It is also possible with TikZ I think.

comment drawing two curved arrows with ellipse between them
Even though it is not a requirement, I think that your major axes are not always normal to both curves. :-)
