People often talk about the many "typesetting wonders" (La)TeX can do because of the countless algorithms it uses. But exactly what are these typesetting algorithms? Concrete examples I have gathered are (even if I do not really know how they work)
- The Knuth-Plass line-breaking algorithm
- The Boxes & Glue model
- Float positioning (which unfortunately does not work as flawlessly as one could have hoped)
Are these all of them, or are there more?
