I'm a postgraduate mathematician working in infinite group theory and some related areas, although my research interests involve geometric measure theory and fractal geometry, semigroup theory and related computational topics.

In my spare time I travel quite frequently, both for leisure and to play bass or guitar in one of my several bands. I also run, and like to read - particularly online: the more "miscellaneous" the better.

comment Bibtex-like macros organising software
@egreg: I use a lot of macros, and it's quite a bit of effort to duplicate the macros file, and then pull out packages and commands until it breaks or looks bad. I may take this approach in future, but think for now I'll just submit the thing warts-and-all, or try preprocessing.

comment Bibtex-like macros organising software
Thanks @cfr. I'm not sure that's really what I'm getting at - I'm not sure yet if the arXiv is unhappy with author-defined macros; it looks like their process is automated, so my thinking is that if my code compiles fine on a standard tex distro then it will compile fine there - although preprocessing is a good workaround I think.

comment How to reset endnotes counter at parts and chapters
So, having applied these techniques to my initial problem I've now compiled with a \tableofcontents. The "Notes" chapter heading doesn't appear, but the chapter headings (invoked in notes as sections) are all present in the contents, listed as sections in the preceding chapter. Is there an easy way to fix this?

comment How to reset endnotes counter at parts and chapters
I've had a look at the pagenotes package, which seems to address a lot of the issues, but falls at the last hurdle with respect to its behaviour respecting \parts; if we have some text falling before any of the \chapter invocations in its part then it's in "chapter n-1" where n is the number of the first chapter in that \part.
