set inline math size larger than \scriptstyle

I'm writing in a document that uses sans-serif 10pt. In one section, inline math looked too big, so I used \everymath{\scriptstyle} inside a group to change it locally. But now it looks too small. Is there an in between, or can I set the number of pts manually? Thanks \documentclass[10pt]{article} \...

Re: overlapped symbols in figure caption

Thanks! I'm not familiar with fragile commands. How can I tell if I'm constructing something fragile? Is it the command I'm declaring or its substitute, i.e., is \newcommand\overlap{} the issue or what's inside the fragile part?

psfrag for greek symbols corrupted with asme2e

Hi all, I have an eps figure with x- and-ylabels set to a,b,c,d, and e, corresponding to -pi through pi in increments of pi/2 (see example and attachment). I also have x and y axes labeled X and Y, respectively. When I try to replace these with greek symbols \pi or \Delta, I get unexpected symbols. ...

Re: mathptmx, ulem | Wave not showing up

Directly from their author.tex template: Use the standard \verb|equation| environment to typeset your equations, e.g. % \begin{equation} a \times b = c\;, \end{equation} % however, for multiline equations we recommend to use the \verb|eqnarray| environment\footnote{In physics texts please activate t...

Also, they ask for mathptmx, which is the source of my troubles here \documentclass{article} %\usepackage{mathptmx} % selects Times Roman as basic font \use...

Operating Principles of the (La)TeX Compiler

For me, LaTeX is a black box in the middle of my TeX and the first output stage (DVI, for example). I find very little information about the behind-the-scenes TeX interpretation/compilation. Is there a resource for how this works in general?

Depth of Subscript

Hi all,

Is there any way to modify this example
  1. \usepackage[normalem]{ulem}
  2. \begin{document}
  3. \begin{align}
  4. y_i = \uwave{u}_i
  5. \end{align}
  6. \end{document}

to get it to change like:

dashed lines in a table

Hi all, I'm working in Beamer, so my page size is small. I have table with large width and small height, and I'd like to display it on one slide. I've already reduced the size of the table with all the tricks I came across, but I will need to split it along two lines. Ideally, I want the table to lo...

negative indentation on just one equation

Hi all, I have an equation inside a nested itemize environment, like \begin{itemize} \item blah \begin{itemize} \item blah \begin{align*} &y = f(x) \end{align*} \end{itemize} \end{itemize} However, I'd like the left of the equation to be flush with the left margin, not indented like the itemize....
