Equation Sideways

Postby mr_pink » Sun Jun 15, 2008 7:48 pm

Hi,

i have a problem with 6 huge equations (way too long to fit into one line and not really splittable as they are arrays) that i have to squeeze into the main part of my thesis somehow. I managed to insert a line break but the result looks really confusing.

Is there a way to insert one or two landscape pages that contain just these equations? Or rotate three equations and put them all on one page? I've found posts about rotating tables but nothing about rotating equations. What happens to the headsepline if i do manage to insert such pages?
If all that is impossible how else could i solve the problem?

I use the Miktex distribution, TexnicCenter, latex=>ps profile, scrbook class.

Thanks for your help!

Anne

well just so you maybe understand my desperation... here's an example. The function is supposed to be just one array.

Hi Anne,

you could use the lscape package or pdflscape for landscape pages.

With the rotating package you can rotate equations too, for instance using the sideways environment:
\usepackage{rotating}
...
\begin{sideways}%
\parbox{\textheight}{%
  \begin{equation}
    e^{\pi i} + 1 = 0
  \end{equation}}
\end{sideways}

In your example you could consider to break the formula after if instead of rotating.

Hi Stefan,

thanks for the quick answer! The sideways way works. I managed to put several rotated equations on one page. It looks okay and that'll just have to do for now.

If i had used the landscape solution instead, would the headsepline have turned as well? That is would it be at the top of the page viewed in landscape now?

Hi Anne,

headsepline, headers, footers and page number should not be changed for landscape pages, they will be the same. Imagine if you are searching through a book or paper and the headers and page numbers change repeatedly, thats's uncomfortable.
For consistency it's better to keep the header and footer layout on landscape pages too. If you have doubts have a look at books containing landscape oriented material.
