This example shows how to write LaTeX in Japanese with the CJK package. WriteLaTeX includes a full set of fonts for Japanese, and we use UTF-8 encoding, so you can type Japanese characters directly into your LaTeX source code and have them appear in the output. This example is from Akiniwa's blog post.
Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by death of cholinergic neurons, which secrete the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. This results in a loss of the total amount of acetylcholine circulating in neural networks. Modern drugs target acetylcholinesterase so as to inhibit its function, allowing for increased transmission of acetylcholine in cholinergic synapses. The aim is that an increase in cholinergic activity leads to an increase in cognition. However, these drugs only bind temporarily and have consequential problems that make modern AChE inhibitors of little effect. The main goal of our project is to engineer a snake toxin, fasciculin-II, capable of crossing the blood brain barrier and inhibiting acetylcholinesterase with enough affinity that it increases cholinergic transmission without yielding toxic outcomes. This fasciculin binds to the peripheral acetylcholinesterase found in neuromuscular junctions and causes rapid twitching. Fasciculin-II binds to acetylcholinesterase very tightly with the use of many charged residues and hydrophobic residues and we would like to optimize this interaction so that it may serve a therapeutic purpose in patients of AD.
We present research on the integration of network model and visual analytic paradigms to understand structure effects in urban design decisions on Charleston peninsular. Our goal is to consider the physical environment and social dimensions simultaneously. The architectural brief is a conceptual urban infrastructure proposal for the Clark Parkway site on Charleston Peninsular that directly confronts issues of occupation, circulation, form, and access to downtown facilities. Combining the efforts of twelve designers of architecture and landscape, with a consulting team of city planners and transportation engineers, we develop a taxonomy of location property, physical connectivity. This taxonomy constitutes preliminary network model heuristics for dynamic assessment for in urban design settings.
pgf-pie is a LaTeX package for drawing pie charts (and some interesting variants on pie charts) with the PGF/TikZ graphics package.
The examples in this document are from the pgf-pie manual, version 0.2.
The source code for pgf-pie is available at http://code.google.com/p/pgf-pie/.
The Unified Modeling Language (UML) defines a suite of graphic notation techniques for describing object-oriented software systems. TikZ-UML is a TikZ extension to manage common UML diagrams: class diagrams, use case diagrams, state-machine diagrams and sequence diagrams. It produces beautiful UML diagrams in LaTeX.
This template includes the tikz-uml package and a compilation of the examples from the TikZ-UML manual, v. 1.0b (2013-03-01), and tikz-uml.sty from v1.0 (2016-03-29).
