comment Mathematica notebook into latex document
@egreg \text{Cos}[\alpha] is in fact reasonable. They're trying to replicate what's displayed in a Mathematica notebook, where cosine in the default output style (called StandardForm in Mathematica jargon) is Cos[α]. If you ask Mathematica to display in TraditionalForm, then the LaTeX output for Cos[x]//TraditionalForm will be \noindent\(\cos (x)\), which is more TeXish.

"However, the formatting of that file is not optimal." You're being too nice. I've seen the output before, and it is simply horrible.

comment Row spacing of multi-line paragraph cell in `tabular` in the `res` document class
@Bernard Surprisingly, I revisited the solution, and found out that if I simply load the package array and do nothing, the spacing would be correct. Thanks for the help, and sorry for all the hassle.

@egreg Wow, indeed. Thanks for the help, I guess I will stick with this 1980s product then.

comment Row spacing of multi-line paragraph cell in `tabular` in the `res` document class
@egreg That's true. Actually I found res because it is recommended on the NYU Math graduate resources page. Would you recommend some better classes suitable for mathematicians, if I might ask? There are twenty something packages for CV on CTAN. I browsed through some, and they don't look as good as this simple and elegant one composed with res (if not for the nasty spacing issue); some of them are too plain, and some are too fancy—maybe better for professionals in the industries. Anyway, I don't know how configurable they are.

comment Row spacing of multi-line paragraph cell in `tabular` in the `res` document class
@Bernard Oops I'm super sorry about reporting the wrong problem—I temporarily confused myself. What I actually mean is that the vertical space between two single-line p cells is also stretched (notice that the original issue only occurs when the p cell spans multiple lines).

comment Row spacing of multi-line paragraph cell in `tabular` in the `res` document class
@Bernard Thanks Bernard. \arraystretch almost solves the problem (is there any harmful side effect, btw? I know that a stretched struct is inserted into every row; does it have effects on other macros?) However, I'm a bit reluctant to use this workaround, because when the rows are stretched, line spacing inside a multi-line cell is also stretched; the spacing throughout the document is not uniform this way. (And in fact, the space between two rows is still a bit thinner than inside a cell, only less noticeable.)

@UlrikeFischer Sorry I mixed up different concepts. Should I edit the question so it makes more sense? (Or would you please edit it for me since I'm still somewhat confused? Thanks.)

comment Control the alignment of each “cell” in amsmath's aligned environment
Thanks everybody for suggesting creative/standard ways to do the tiny job at hand. However, as I have pointed out in some comment, I was questioning the "theoretical possibility" of alignment in aligned, which I couldn't find anywhere, rather than trying to get the simple job done. (If I simply needed to get the job done, I would ask Google rather than TeX.SX, which is kind of a waste of resources, you know; anyway, thanks for pointing out the right tools.) That's why I accepted the not-so-elegant answer, as it is the only one that properly addressed aligned.

comment Control the alignment of each “cell” in amsmath's aligned environment
Thanks. Given the not-so-elegant solution I would abandon the idea. You are right with "please remember that All that can be done may/should not be done." I won't get pissed off or something, so you don't need to remove it actually ;-) I was simply wondering about the theoretical possibility, and I simply grabbed the example at hand, which led me to the question but definitely isn't a good example for using aligned.

comment Control the alignment of each “cell” in amsmath's aligned environment
@cmhughes Well, I simply grabbed an example at hand, and it is not the best example illustrating the problem. Of course we can solve the very problem by using other environments—even tabular will be much more controllable. But that does not answer the question regarding aligned.
