Idea borrowed from Hendrik Vogt:


[Welcome to TeX.SE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1436).


It would be helpful if you composed a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) including `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages that sets up the problem.

While solving problems can be fun, setting them up is not. Then, those trying to help can simply cut and paste your MWE and get started on solving the problem.


It is always best to compose a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) that illustrates the problem including the `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

This will also serve as a test case and ensure that the solution actually works for you.

That way those trying to help can focus on the solution as opposed to setting up the problem test case.


While code snippets are useful in explanations, it is always best to compose a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) that illustrates the problem including the `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

This is especially important for `tikz` as there are numerous libraries.

In this case it will actually help to ensure that the solution actually solves your specific problem.

Personally, I have often solved my own problems in the process of reducing the amount of code actually required to reproduce the problem.


A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they're marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (`{}`).

I took the liberty to format your post a little. See [this link for more details on available formatting](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/editing-help).


Saying it "does not work" does not provide any useful information with which anyone can provide you with any help. I'd suggest you post a new question and include a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) including `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages that sets up the problem. If your case does not even compile, then ensure that it compiles if that one line is commented. While solving problems can be fun, setting them up is not. Then, those trying to help can simply cut and paste your MWE and get started on solving the problem.

comment TikZ, 3d library and circle fading
Not sure I understand the problem. The image you included does fade radially proportional to the distance (in the xy plane) from the origin. You have graphed this in 3D, not 2D. If you eliminate the z-axis with [x={(1,0cm)}, y={(0cm,1cm)}, z={(0cm,0cm)}, scale=2] you can see it more clearly.

Your MWE does not compile for me with TeXLive2011. Please add the necessary packages to get this to compile.

comment \index after mathmode
I think @Herbert's suggestion is correct. If you are trying to index the end of the math environment, that is inside the display math. Otherwise there is blank space added after display math and you are indexing the end of the space which might result in you indexing on to the next page.

comment mdframed: New bug with page break?
Welcome to TeX.SE. I am not able to reproduce the error. Do you really need all that code to reproduce the problem. Would be helpful if you tried to minimize the code to only what is necessary to show the problem.

If you want the title above just insert a blank line after the title. Not sure if that is what you are looking for.

comment Stop LaTeX compile with a command?
The solutions below are better, but I just use \typeout{<text>}\QUIT, where \QUIT is not defined.
