comment Mathematical description of TeX's infinite numbers?
@BenCrowell That's a completely different matter. You asked for a formal description of a glue specification and the sum between glues. Your new question doesn't fit here.

comment Building evaluated arrays
In TeX we usually talk about a group, but that's the idea. The assignment of values in TeX is local (so undone when a group/scope ends), unless explicitly marked as global. As far as I can see in the documentation of arrayjobx there's no provision for global assignments.

comment Building evaluated arrays
Welcome to TeX.SX! With LaTeX you shouldn't be using arrayjob, but arrayjobx. Depending on what you want to use the array for, there may be better methods. Anyway, you should always remember that \foreach executes each cycle in a group, so the assignment to the array is lost when the group ends.

@BenCrowell You're right; bad copy-paste-edit. :(

comment printed margins not correspond with pdf
It is common when using Adobe Reader that it shrinks page at 97%, because it apparently thinks that A4 paper doesn't fit in A4 paper.

comment hyperref for longtable jumps to first page of PDF
Just to be on the safe side I'd move also tocloft before hyperref.

comment Broken automatic line breaking in section titles when ulem and hyperref are used
Break manually. Or use short titles.

comment Mathematical description of TeX's infinite numbers?
@HeikoOberdiek \multiply is just the action of Z on G that I described; \divide is essentially taking the quotient in the division with remainder, which is well defined on any free abelian group (although it depends on the chosen basis).

comment Mathematical description of TeX's infinite numbers?
@HeikoOberdiek That's a side effect of coercion in TeX's primitive operations. You can also multiply a glue by an arbitrary scalar, but the result is actually a <dimen>.

comment Underlining with ulem package breaks footnotes
You might use soul and its \ul command. If you're underlining a word for giving it a special meaning, then the footnote marker shouldn't be underlined anyway and the standard \underline would suffice. If you're underlining a whole sentence, emphasize it in a different way, with italics, for instance; your readers will be grateful.

@HeikoOberdiek Are you meaning multiplication by a scalar?

comment Changing language back and forth with polyglossia
This seems to be a bug in the experimental support of Polyglossia in LuaLaTeX. I would stay away from Polyglossia if you plan to use LuaLaTeX. By the way, the behavior is correct with XeLaTeX.
