comment Why are my dimension calculations so far off?
If we find it out that would be the answer to your question too :) I think it terminates parsing the whole number for some reason. And I'm out of votes :|

It needs parenthesis around them to your previous comment :)

pgfmath reports the correct values so it must be an ambiguous interpretation of etex

Nice one but using empty set for zero matrix is really really strange :)

Why do you use transform canvas instead of transform shape on the node?

You can correct the colors relatively easier in Adobe Suite. Almost always, if you are not going to print it you don't need CMYK. However, you can't embed the fonts that easily, especially in the old documents.

comment Retain coordinate value in tikz foreach loop
Is it \lastx or \lasty? If all are \lasty try [remember=\x as \lasty (initially 0)] or define \lasty before the loop as zero

comment Use integral or sigma as delimiter?
Very nice! As another option, for double integral fans, you can collect operators on the left \sum{\prod{...}} to make it a little more obvious that the sum covers the product (right now only the upper limit of product hints it in the first case). It would decrease the dependence over the convention. Of course algorithmically thinking, it might be not so wise to code as such.

comment pgfplots: How to add the origin to the axis in a robust way?
What @PeterGrill said. And also if you have two axis in the middle why would you want zero as the tick label?
