DocEng '16: A Framework for Globally Optimized Pagination

Posted on September 20, 2016 by LaTeX Project Feed

A Framework for Globally Optimized Pagination At DocEng ‘16 the ACM Symposium on Document Engineering Frank presented a paper on “A Framework for Globally Optimized Pagination” that discusses an algorithm and its theoretical foundation for globally optimized pagination using a dynamic programming approach. The paper was awarded best paper of the conference. The full paper can be downloaded from the ACM Digital library through a link on the Publications page. Abstract of the Paper Pagination problems deal with questions around transforming a source text stream into a formatted document by dividing it up into individual columns and pages, including adding auxiliary elements that have some relationship to the source stream data but may allow a certain amount of variation in placement (such as figures or footnotes). Traditionally the pagination problem has been approached by separating it into one of micro-typography (e.g., breaking text into paragraphs, also known as h&j) and one of macro-typography (e.g., taking a galley of already formatted paragraphs and breaking them into columns and pages) without much interaction between the two. While early solutions for both problem spaces used simple greedy algorithms, Knuth and Plass introduced in the ’80s a global-fit algorithm for line breaking that optimizes ...

Gérer les claves avec biblatex

Posted on September 16, 2016 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Lorsqu'on cite des œuvres anciennes, par exemple dans le domaine du christianisme ancien, il peut être utile d'indiquer l'identifiant de celles-ci dans une ou plusieurs claves (singulier clavis), tel que la Bibliotheca hagiographica graeca (BHG) ou la Clavis apocryphorum novi testamenti (CANT), afin d'éviter les confusions entre œuvres homonymes, ou pour clarifier l'identification d'une œuvre publiée sous différents titres. Le package biblatex-claves, juste publié sur le CTAN et inspiré d'une (...) - BibLaTeX

Many variants of a Beamer presentation – part I

Posted on September 5, 2016 by Content AND Presentation Feed

ome time ago I decided to prepare slides for a certain lecture using Beamer. I thought it would be nice to have a few versions of the slides. For starters, I wanted to prepare lecture notes for the students. Also, I wanted to check how the “notes” feature works (spoiler: it works nice, though it does not play extremely well with hyperref).
