Open Access, the DEAL, and many ways to scientific content

2018-05-07 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
MA 464

Speaker: Jan Heiland (MPI Magdeburg) Just now, most German universities have stopped subscribing to Elsevier's journals in a concerted effort - the DEAL - to push for open access at a reasonable price. I want to explain what is happening and how the many legal ways to freely publish, share and obtain scientific papers play for academia.

Makefiles & Latexdiff

2018-06-11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
MA 464

Speaker: Daniel Bankmann (TU Berlin), Benjamin Unger (TU Berlin) Many LaTeX projects require a number of steps to produce the final pdf document (e.g. pdflatex, biblatex, 2x pdflatex). If additional TikZ pictures are included, that are generated automatically from some data sets, this list may become longer and longer. The tool that simplifies this process is called latexmk and can be efficiently used within a Makefile; and in the first part of this session, we explain its usage in detail.…

Scientific Literature Management

2018-07-02 @ 4:15 pm - 5:00 pm
MA 313

Speaker: Daniel Bankmann (TU Berlin), Benjamin Unger (TU Berlin) Reading (and understanding) scientific research results is part of our daily life. Instead of inventing clever folder structures to save the pdfs of the corresponding papers and books, we could also use literature management software to help us organize our library, which additionally may help us providing the meta data that is required for preparing your bibtex files. In this seminar we introduce two such management tools, namely Zotero and Mendeley,…

Reproducible research software with python, conda and singularity

2018-11-05 @ 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm
MA 464

Speaker: Daniel Bankmann (TU Berlin) Writing code as an applied mathematician is part of our daily working routine. As long as we run our own code and test examples everything is nice and smooth. However, sometimes, we also want to share our code with colleagues or even worse want to run old code that has been published along with some article. Reproducing the results, sometimes is not feasible, because either, some libraries are missing, or, the program just won't run…

Vim – Boost Your Productivity through Multimodal Editing

2018-12-10 @ 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm
MA 313

Speaker: Paul Schwerdtner (TU Berlin) We will give an introduction into Vim, an editor that enables you to "Edit Text at the Speed of Thought" by eliminating highly inefficient mouse-usage from your editing workflow. Instead of having to aim for the position you want to change with the mouse, you can express the desired sentence, word, or character using a huge yet extendable set of commands, which keeps your hands on the keyboard and your mind in focus. However, this…
