@ColinTheMathmo I've think I'm using \param instead of \epsilon (and set the value of \param in the preamble) because I've already swapped notation: it's typical to use \(\gamma\) for the parameter in question, but I noticed after draft 1 I was already using \(\gamma\) for something else. Let's hope I remembered this and used \param everywhere...

Aaarg, I'm using \(\epsilon\) and \(\varepsilon\) (for two different values) in the same equation. I fear it may be time to burn this laptop and start my PhD again from scratch.

This has to be the weirdest setting for a sci-fi novel. This plot synopsis is so bizarre!


\[\sqrt{\sqrt{9} - \sqrt{8}} = \sqrt{2} - \sqrt{1}\]

Issue 08 of @chalkdustmag is finished and has been sent to the printers. :chalkdust_scorpion: :chalkdust_scorpion: :chalkdust_scorpion:

@bmreiniger @chalkdustmag Hmm, that looks like it might be an improvement. I'll check the code I used to find the shortest route and get back to you...

... or maybe this is worse:

Find \(x\), \(\mathrm{x}\), and \(\mathsf{x}\).

@mscroggs Yep that's why I was wandering if you considered these x's different variables or not. If you are, that actually defines a plane in 3 dimensions!

The absolute worst way to write a simultaneous equations question:

\({\color{yellow}x} + {\color{blue}x} = {\color{green}x}\)
\({\color{green}x} + {\color{blue}x} = 4{\color{yellow}x}\)
\({\color{yellow}x} + {\color{green}x} = 3{\color{blue}x}+1\)
Find \(\color{yellow}x\), \(\color{blue}x\), and \(\color{green}x\).
