LaTeX Tips and Tricks for Particle Physicists

During the course of writing my thesis I spent quite some time into getting the \(\LaTeX\) stuff right. LaTeX is such a great language1, generating amazing output, and enabling so many cool typesetting possibilities. How could one not!?
I thought it would be nice sharing my meta-research with others. So I held a talk at my institute to show the most important packages and concepts, I drew on while writing my document.

It tackles writing units in LaTeX and writing particle names. It highlights a few other, smaller packages, but also introduces BibLaTeX and glossaries in more detail. The great engine that is latexmk is introduced as well. It is also the first presentation I did in LaTeX Beamer!

Documenting PandaRoot with Doxygen

Slides: 15
Duration: 20 Minutes
Occasion: Collaboration Meeting
Location: Angstrom Laboratory, Uppsala, Sweden
Date: 9.6.2015
Background of Audience: Physicists

A talk on how to use Doxygen with our experiment’s software framework. Both a reminder as well as an introduction for new users. With (non-working) panda GIFs for additional cuteness.


Analysis with PandaRoot

Slides: 36
Duration: 150 Minutes
Occasion: Special Seminar Talk
Location: Institute für Kernphysik, FZJ
Date: 20./27.5.2015
Background of Audience: Physicists

I thought that after programming a lot during the final months of my thesis, it might be good to share the things I learned. The beginning is very PandaRoot-specific, while the end deviates it bit into the more general.


Talk: GPU-based Online Tracking Algorithms & Application to D±→K∓π±π±

Slides: 60
Duration: 45 Minutes
Occasion: Seminar Talk
Location: Ruhr-University Bochum
Date: 3.2.2015
Background of Audience: Physicists

One of the final talks of my PhD, and the first in front of the RUB institute for a long time. Spontaneously held in German, which was not what I trained. But it went alright. Some questions afterwards.
