comment Error with hobbyconvexpath
@JoachimBreitner I tried x=5mm and got a self-intersecting path, is that what you meant? What is happening, I think, is that the nodes are too close together and the path is tied to going through certain of their anchors so the algorithm ends up getting a bit expansive. Hobby's algorithm is not the right thing to use in every case, and in my experience it works best when there are a few points spaced out. This is probably one of those problems where there's not going to be a single best solution and you have to work on a case-by-case basis.

comment How can I uncover the fraction line in beamer?
Mentionning \binom is perhaps a red herring. The key is using the \genfrac command upon which both \frac and \binom are based. You could even make an overlay-aware version of this to condense the code still further. Good answer.

comment How do I create a bordered Hessian matrix in LaTeX?
I totally misread the title for this question. I was going to suggest that taffeta might be a better choice.

comment Segmenting a Bezier curve into equal lengths in tikz/pgf
Glad it's useful. Incidentally, for the filling then I would work by defining clipping areas rather than try to redraw the individual segments. It's going to be hard to draw just a segment of the bézier curves, but if you clip against the original curves then you could use the coordinates to define a wedge-shaped segment that you fill with your shading and due to the clipping it will look as though you've just filled the area you want.

comment Segmenting a Bezier curve into equal lengths in tikz/pgf
Bezier curves are not parametrised by arc length. One way to achieve this would be to use a decoration that marks the curve at suitable intervals with coordinates (then afterwards join those coordinates).
