Researcher in quantum information --- involving algebras over finite dimensional Hilbert spaces, graphs and combinatorics, and vector spaces over ℤ/pℤ.

I habitually edit and re-edit anything I write, as long as I have the time, interest, and ability. I should probably apologize for this tendency, but you will probably have to be satisfied with being warned about it instead.

comment big square parentheses with subscript
@egreg: I didn't actually. With the \max there I would prefer myself to have the huge brackets; though I would personally choose to avoid having an expectation of a maximum with so many conditions.

revised How to best typeset “special” constants (complex unit i, Euler's number e,…)?
Noted that it was `\iota` rather than merely a dotless `i`, and condensed slightly

comment TeX and Turing Award
@Jubobs: if you say so. This post is currently a noticeable outlier in the list of questions with that tag: if the community agrees that the description ought to be extended to fit, perhaps that's a good thing to suggest on Meta.

comment TeX and Turing Award
@Jubobs: If you mean that this is an example of The history and origins of TeX and its variants, their applications, their supporting software (such as fonts or viewers), and their mythology and heraldry, then I disagree. This has as much connection to TeX as the fall of the Western Roman Empire has to Norse Mythology (in that Attilah the Hun is pertinent to both).

comment TeX and Turing Award
@Speravir: Sorry, I think I was reading a little hastily. @ Jubobs (if you're reading this, I know that only one @ user is notified per comment): I consider it off topic because it's not a code question, and it's not about TeX.

@DavidCarlisle: The staff have confirmed that it is impossible to reverse a bounty; if it's possible for you to award +100 to user47919's answer, I would appreciate it.

comment problem with eqnarray
While you're at it, replace every {eqnarray*} with either {align} or {align*}, and remove the & characters which follow your = signs. (Don't use eqnarray, it's not very good!)

Oops, I made a mistake... I planned to give a bounty to @user47919, but clicked the wrong place.

Can you locate good PDF documentation for this package, @user47919?
