PhD student in Jönköping University, department of Mechanical Engineering. My research area is something in between of reliability, structural optimization and response surface modelling. People in my research group use LaTeX daily for all their scientific writings and reports. I wouldn't say we're anywhere near LaTeX gurus, but we're trying to improve our skills continuously.

My main interests are Python programming, algorithms, numerical optimization, and cooking.

I became acquainted with LaTeX a few years ago writing my Master thesis, and never looked back .

@Raphink LaTeX gets confused when there is more than one dot in the file name. Rename your {by-nc-nd.eu.eps} to something else and you should be good to go.

comment What are the finishing touches you put to a document?
Same effect can be achieved if you insert {} between the offending morphemes.

revised how to write a limit and how to use large absolute value?
Formatted the mathmode examples with backticks to distinguish them from the running text. Some small grammar fixes.
