I'm writing my thesis, and along the way I am making note of relevant open problems. I would like LaTeX to keep track of these problems and then compile them in a separate section at the end of my thesis, right before the bibliography. I would ideally like these problems to have a two-way link, that is, the initial statement of the problem would have a hyperlink to the section at the end, and then each problem in the section at the end would have a hyperlink back to its initial statement.
If anyone has a reasonably elegant solution for this, I would love to hear it. I've been thinking about it for a while, and my general idea is this: use the endnote package and the command
\let\footnote=\endnote, then write the open problems as footnotes. This works somewhat, but there are still some bugs, given below. If you have any suggestions for any of these too, I would really appreciate it.
- I use the package
footnotebackrefto get the two-way link, but the back link disappears once I use the command
\let\footnote=\endnote(that is, the problems will compile at the end, but won't link back to the original statements).
- The section at the end is entitled "Notes" and I would prefer that it be something like "Open Problems."
- The numbering of the problems in the end section is in footnote style, that is, justified left and as a superscript. I'd like it to render as a normal numbered list.
Thank you very much for your help!
