comment How to fully justify tabular columns
Ah, I figure out a good workaround. As stated here, "An \extracolsep{wd} command in an @-expression causes an extra space of width wd to appear to the left of all subsequent columns, until countermanded by another \extracolsep command." Thus, multiple uses of \extracolsep{wd} with varied wd parameters achieves my desired behavior.

But @{\hspace{\fill}} doesn't work. Why not?

comment How to fully justify tabular columns
Very good. Your first suggestion using \extracolsep{\fill} is closer to what I really want. This command sets the space between all pairs (of adjacent) columns. Is there a way to set different values between different pairs (of adjacent) columns?

@Johannes_B No. An X column is syntactic sugar for p{<some value>}, which specifies how wide the column in question should be. I want to modify the space between columns.

This alternative answer to an unofficial duplicate does want I want.

comment Hiding the title of the bibliography
This solution just removes all section titles after the \renewcommand. What if you have an appendix after the bibliography?

comment Modifying whitespace before and after list separately using enumitem package
@Bernard I looked here for some standard/default amount of vertical space to add and \baselineskip seemed to work the best. Your \midskipamount seems to add less than the default amount of space. Do you have other suggestions? Preferably I would use the same commands that would have normally been used had nosep not been used.

@StevenB.Segletes Yes, of course. I included the image of my MWE but forgot to include its source.

comment Double tagged equations?
Between binary operators, one can use \dotsb, where the "b" stands for "binary". See: tex.stackexchange.com/a/122493/6376

comment TikZ: computation in node name
Actually, there probably is NOT a way around the naming overlap from nested functions since LaTeX only has global variable names. To avoid the name collision, I now start every variable name with the function containing it.

@percusse Oh, yes, sorry. Added the missing link.

comment TikZ: computation in node name
Actually, this suffers from the problems as my hack, which is the inability to do math (i.e. how to get both n-1 and n at the same time) and the counter is globally defined (so other function calls using the same counter name will cause problems).

@ClaudioFiandrino Yes, most of the commands are (but not all).

@percusse I could better answer that if I knew why you wanted to know.

Oh, yes. This will probably work. Good idea. I will try that when i get time later today.

@KevinC Oh, sorry...I meant what is the difference between \visible and onslide?

@daleif Oh, I thought \phantom was a mathtools command.

comment Problem with Beamer, phantom, and definition environment
@KevinC What is the difference between \visible and \only? What would the solution be using overlays? I don't want to use \vskip because the space I want to add depends on specific content.

comment How do I left-align entries in a matrix with \begin{matrix}?
mathtools has the same *ed variants of the family of smallmatrix environments.

comment Displaymath environment that can align equations and squeezes math
I agree with you (egreg) that it would probably take at least three passes to get this behavior, which is probably too many. Ultimately, I ended up rewriting the equation as part of a larger edit to simplify things. This answer gets accepted because it taught me something.
