Frank Mittelbach
DocEng '17 Proceedings of the 2017 ACM Symposium on Document Engineering, 2017

This paper presents an extension to the general framework for globally optimized pagination described in Mittelbach (2016). The extended algorithm supports automatic placement of floats as part of the optimization. It uses a flexible constraint model that allows for the implementation of typical typographic rules that can be weighted against each other to support different application scenarios.

LaTeX table columns with fixed widths Flattr this

A short article discussing how to produce table columns with a fixed width using the array package. The interface as described is now integrated in the package.

TUG/GUST Conference 2017 (Bachotek, Poland)

Through The Looking Glass — and what Alice found there … (handouts)

Continuing the quest for automatically finding optimal pagination of documents the journey takes us now to the fairy land of objective functions, call-out constraints, layout templates and other mystical creatures and a Queen that cries “Faster! Faster!” because “… it takes all the running YOU can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!” This talk explores how fast we must ran to enter that world.
