I'm a Mathematician working as a Staff Tutor at the Open University in Cardiff, Wales.

I use LaTeX for all of my documents- exams, handouts, etc.

I've been a LaTeX enthusiast for a number of years, but have only recently started to learn about the internals. I have a lot to learn- this site has taught me a lot and I'm looking forward to learning more.

I'm also the author of latexindent.pl available on ctan: http://www.ctan.org/pkg/latexindent

comment The intersection of a sphere with planes through an axis tangent to the north pole
The equation of a sphere is (x-a)^2+(y-b)^2+(z-b)^2=r^2, and the equation of a plane can be, for example, Ax+By+Cz=D. You can find the curve of intersection and then change the parameters.

comment How to render LaTeX code without having to press return a lot of times?
It seems like the answer is: fix the errors! :) it's best practice, and furthermore is very satisfying to see a document compiled flawlessly :) of course if you'd prefer not to fix them, then you could compile on non stop mode, but the bugs that start off small might evolve into dragons

when you say 'green', are you describing syntax highlighting? if so, I probably won't be able to answer, but for anyone else, which editor are you using?
