comment What can I do to align svmono's gray box to be aligned properly?
Thanks @egreg. My last comment was timed out. Here is may new code: \renewenvironment{svgraybox}%{\begin{shaded*}% \list{}{\leftmargin=\p@\rightmargin=\p@\topsep=\p@}% \expandafter\item\parindent=\svparindent \hskip-\listparindent} {\endlist\end{shaded*}} I am also very grateful for your recommendation that I use newtxtext and newtxmath in place of mathptmx. This suggestion solves a big problem that I had with mathptmx. Happy Easter!

Thank you very much egreg. I tried out your modified form of the svgraybox environment. It worked very well for me. I made two modifications to your code: I replaced the environment shaded with the environment shaded*; and \z@ with \p@. My code appears below.

comment How can I get glossaries links to point to the right pages?
Thanks a lot karlkoeller. I have tried out your MWE. It works wonderfully well. The comment on using the toc option is a very useful lesson to me. The problems about the relative positions of \maketitle and \frontmatter, and about the arguments to \frontmatter and \tableofcontents, are due to the export of my MWE from LyX. I have to figure out how to get LyX sort them out. The rest of the problems were due to my ignorance. Thanks, once more, for your prompt response and for showing me how to get it right.

comment Is it possible to get the package listofsymbols to recognize the \cdots command?
Thanks, once more, Gonzalo Medina. I have tried out your code. It works as given but fails when \cdots is replaced with \sqrt. Cheers for your response.

Thanks a lot egreg. I have tried out your code. It works even for \sqrt. I also appreciate your comments on \cdots and \dots. I have just read the amsmath user guide on dots and discovered the contextually flexible dots such as \dotsc, \dotsb, etc. Great stuff.

comment Is it possible to get the package listofsymbols to recognize the \cdots command?
Thank you very much Gonzalo Medina. Analysis of the difference between your code and mine led me to discover the source of my problem. When I use your code in the context of my original document it fails to compile; but if I use your code in isolation it compiles without problems at all. I discovered that one of the packages I used in my context, the amsmath package, was the cause of the problem. My code works if the \usepackage{amsmath} command is commented out. Unfortunately, I need the amsmath package in order to access the \numberwithin command.

Thanks four your answer Gonzalo. I have tried out your example exactly as you have written it. However, it still does not work for me. I also use TeXLive 2014.

comment How can I get the TikZ calc library to calculate some point coordinates correctly?
Thank you very much Gonzalo Medina you for the elegant solution to my problem. I have learned two new things: (a) The use of \coordinate; and (b) the use of \node[inner sep=0pt,outer sep=0pt] {} to kill the padding around the nodes. Great stuff.
