comment Topological Quantum Field Theory diagrams with pstricks or tikz
@tetrapharmakon: From your prior comment, it looks as though you need to look at the details of how TikZ places a node. In short, saying \node[anchor=east] (a.north) {}; places the east anchor of the new node at the same place as the north anchor of the old node. The other thing you have to know is that when you rotate a node then the anchors rotate as well, so that \node[rotate=180] {}; swaps the east and west anchors, and the north and south.

comment Topological Quantum Field Theory diagrams with pstricks or tikz
@tetrapharmakon: I was serious when I said it was overkill! I know the sort of diagram that you want, I was just being a little silly posting that link (plus I'm quite pleased with that picture).

I guess you'd regard math.ntnu.no/~stacey/documents/smooth_chern.1.pdf as overkill!

@Matsaya: You can email me if you like, but I prefer having these discussions in public as then others can follow and join in if they so wish. We have a chat room here for exactly this: developing packages from answers. It is: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/409/from-answers-to-packages

@Matsaya: Oh good grief! Is this really linked to F_un?!?! I think I might have to run a long way very fast. Seriously, those are good ideas. Is a "floor" the part corresponding to a generator?

@Matsaya: Thinking about this a bit more, may I ask what you'd want from such a package? I'm quite new to knots, links, and braids so am not sure what functionality would be useful.

comment Placing images left and right of each other
(Incidentally, the flushright does nothing because it is inside the minipage, and your minipage and graphic are the same size. That the two are on separate lines is caused by the blank line between the minipage environments: that starts a new paragraph.)
