A collection of various LaTeX templates, MATLAB tricks etc., as well as totally unrelated stuff.

TUT LaTeX poster template

A template for preparing conference posters with LaTeX. Both portrait and landscape versions are provided. The colours are set in accordance to the new TUT guidelines, and the logo of TUT is also incorporated. See example poster.

All the messy code is hidden in the style file, so that the main tex file has to do mostly with the contents. Some tweaks in the style file with the spacing might be required though (e.g. spaces of 9cm and 47cm in portrait and landscape versions, respectively, at the end of each column were needed to prevent contents from going outside the margins, which occurred presumably due to the forceful change of font size in the title), in case a different scale parameter of the beamerposter package is used (can be set to a smaller number if the contents don't fit). Based on the template by Philippe Dreuw and Thomas Deselaers.

TUT LaTeX presentation template

A template for preparing presentations with LaTeX, created based on the Power Point template according to the recently (Sep 2012) issued TUT guidelines. Features a beautiful sidebar with contents of the file, which can be used for navigation. Have a look at the sample pdf.

Background images are png, so the quality suffers, but I don't think they were vector images in the original ppt-file. Such parameters as colours, fonts, spacing can be specified in parameters.tex, title page — in title.tex, frames as such go in frames.tex.

TUT LaTeX Report Template

A template for preparing reports in LaTeX in the style of the official .doc-format TUT report template. English and Finnish versions are supported. Have a look at the sample pdf.

MATLAB hints

A colection of tiny hints for MATLAB which are easier to have in one place than to google them each time.

A table trying to group finnish nouns according to the way their plural partitive forms are obtained. AFAIK, there is no fixed rule but just some dependencies one has to observe and remember. So this is an attempt to collect these observations.

Wiktionary Lookuper for Mac OS

A small service that allows looking up a selected word from any Mac OS application in a pop-up window. Helpful among others for the Finnish language learners.
