A few LaTeX tricks

I learned several neat LaTeX tricks in the past few days. The first is how to write LaTeX in my wordpress blog entry:

e^{\i \pi} + 1 = 0 or e^{\i \pi} + 1 = 0 syntax.

To write it, you enclose the mathtype you want like: [tag] e^{\i \pi} + 1 = 0 [/tag] (but replace tag with the word: latex).

e^{\i \pi} + 1 = 0 or e^{\i \pi} + 1 = 0 syntax.
Using the plugin: WP LaTeX

The second trick came from trying to set my paper in twocolumn mode and getting the figures to plot correctly. I used to scale by hand, when I was told that you can set the width using a multiple of textwidth (in the following example, one half of the textwidth):


The third and final thing I learned was that while adding a * to equations will keep them from being numbered, if you add it to figure, it breaks out of double column mode for that figure only.


It even works (for emulateapj) with deluxetables.
