comment Random points inside a Polygon
@gabriel_littman. I believe you are correct. In the graphic for the equation there is a missing R(pi), which is present in the text... i.e. rotation by 180 degrees. I think that rotation matrix is [-1, 0; 0, -1] which is to say that we take the negative of its operand.

@LokiAstari I agree with your comment in the context of the OP but what if a function returns the result of std::bind(...)?

comment How can I copy one map into another using std::copy?
@Billy: Your answer is clearly the correct answer for the OP, but the answer to why would be "so I can use copy_if", and filter one map during the copy to another.

comment Can I use a binary literal in C or C++?
Here's a tutorial on user-defined literals in c++11: akrzemi1.wordpress.com/2012/10/23/user-defined-literals-part-ii. Evidently c++1y (a.k.a. c++14) will include binary literals in the standard.

comment Crop equations with preview package
the preview package will generate one equation per page, and pdftk can split them into one file per page. The command is pdftk latex_output.pdf burst.

comment Changing font size of selected slides in beamer
@Schweinbacke I agree with you in general as 6pt is probably too small for a presentation, but sometimes 10pt is just a bit too large and it's better to squeeze that last line onto your slide rather than splitting it into two. Furthermore, it may be valuable to add an "equation reference" slide if the presentation is to be printed. Both of which require a technique to change the font size for the slide.
