comment Saving in $\LaTeX$
Probably best to include in LaTeX preamble \DeclareMathOperator{\logP}{logP} and \DeclareMathOperator{\Edge}{Edge}, then change \text{logP} to \logP and change \text{Edge} to `\Edge'.

comment How find constant term of quadratic with square already completed?
thanks for this suggestion. It does, though, seem more complicated than my method.

@ciao: ah yes, the default sort order will put the constant term first!

That does it, thanks! (At least so far on expressions I've encountered in this context.)

@David, isn't that the trade-off of quality for speed?

comment Row echelon form question
Note that there is nothing unique about a row echelon form, even such a form whose leading entries are all 1. So the question needs to be restated in a more precise manner. E.g., do you want a command that follows a particular algorithm for obtaining a row echelon form? As you noted, it's easy to do a sequence of elementary row operations, and to write little functions to do such operations, then to write a main function that calls those little functions to follow a particular reduction algorithm. But then how do you want to handle roundoff errors? (Or do you want exact rational arithmetic?)

comment Unwanted interaction between instances of a Manipulate function
Thanks! Is there any way to simplify this so that a Function construct is not needed? The code is something I'd like somebody to be able both to use and to understand readily who is fairly new to using Mathematica.

comment Unwanted interaction between instances of a Manipulate function
No, 2 or even half a dozen or more "test" functions would not suffice for building into the Manipulate: the idea is to create a function trajectory that can be used with *any" vector field function the user might wish.

comment Graphical output sizes
Does it help to use the option ImageSize -> Scaled[0.7] (or whatever factor you wish) inside Plot? That will behave more nicely if you change the window size than does an absolute setting for ImageSize in points.

comment How use TraditionalForm input in InputField?
@kgular: Yep, the general syntax is indicated in the reference you cite, although it is a bit hard to spot and dig out. Thanks again.
