Shopping list (articles created / to create)Edit

To createEdit


  • (research) Create the Tree transducer article: stub   Done. Make it good:   Not done.
  • (basic) Needed to create Ranked alphabet as prerequisite.   Done Needs a proper definition of ranked terms.   Not done.
Work out if it's a special case of Vandermonde's identity, and write it up.   Not done


Shopping list (articles to edit)Edit

  • (teach) Arden's rule could use expansion. There again, French version is more complete.
  • (misc) Add the nice proof of Pascal's rule with binomial expansion.
  • (teaching) Check vocabulary for code. French: code vs codage; here using en:code for fr:codage; what's the en for fr:code ? "uniquely decodable" still applies to a fr:codage instead of directly to a fr:code, which would be simpler. Need to find refs for usual practices.   Not done
  • (teaching) Nicer prefix proof at Kraft's inequality:   Done. Maybe wrangle McMillan later.   Not done
  • (misc) Iverson bracket undefined cases? Proper definition for 'strongly 0'? Reworked.   Done

Shopping list (meta)Edit

  • See if Pandoc is good at converting LaTeX to wiki syntax. That would make things easier for me.

Turns out, it doesn't handle macros well. My existing documents depend heavily on them. Alternatives? Simple macros work fine.   Done

  • BibTeX citations to Wikipedia: follow up on [1], [2].   Done Zotero seems to work fine.
  • See if there is really no way to define LaTeX macros across an article; User:Gamall_Wednesday_Ida/sandbox. Seems not, but might ask someone knowledgeable sometime.   Not done

  3. Talk:Zack Hample#Dispute over ban from 3 stadiums This has been in dispute for months and continues to be the source of edit wars. It would be nice to come to agreement over this section so there's no more edit wars. Thanks! 22:06, 19 January 2020 (UTC)
