I am a physicist with a Ph.D in astrophysics and work as a teacher for physics and mathematics in Germany in my beautiful home region Black Forest, my native language is German (and my knowledge of English hopefully improving ;-) My pupils will get their 'Abitur' in order to enter university level.

You may send me a mail to


or via the contact form on my website (still extending/improving...)

Although I have been using LaTeX since 1997, there are still some caveats and interesting issues to gain knowledge of. At that time, the internet was quite young and I obtained LaTeX on a bundle of two CD-ROM disks, with very limited documentation.

My questions here are very specific, most time concerning with interna/macro programming, so they are not very popular, but if you like it, you are free to upvote ;-)

I use LaTeX for worksheets, class exams etc. and I am writing a package for typesetting "problem-solutions" with hyperlinking and "problem level commands" etc. I know, there are already such pretty packages, for me it is fun and occupation as productive as well.

Perhaps, I will publish my version one fine day ... and I hope this to happen many years before my retirement begins :D ('s goht degege)

My working environment

  • Linux exclusively
  • TeXLive 2014
  • No LyX, TexMaker etc. just (X)Emacs without auctex
  • Compilation on console with pdflatex or with make on complexer projects

I always upvote other solutions as well, if they provide another, interesting ways to achieve the goal.

Here are some snapshots from the current state of my package (well, the real functionality is inside the pdf document), so far in German language only.

Please do not object the yellow or green backgrounds of the headers etc -- they just show the possibilities of the package at the moment Example enviroment of problem solution - package
