    This is the companion blog post for a talk I gave on September 30, 2022 at the 6th European Hereditary Tumour Group (EHTG) Meeting in Mallorca on uncertainty quantification in oncology. The intended audience of the talk (and accordingly of this blog post) is mainly clinicians interested in novel methods that will influence cancer research in the future. As this is a transcript of an eight minutes talk also this blog post cannot go to much into depth. But I hope that it will convince you that uncertainty quantification and mathematical modeling is a very useful tool for clinical decision making. After a short intro on mathematical modeling I covered the various sources for uncertain data, and uncertainty quantification (UQ) as a means to handle them in a mathematical correct and also clinically relevant way. I illustrated UQ at the example of a mathematical model of Lynch syndrome carcinogenesis and pointed out a few connections to artificial intelligence before recommending a few simple points to make uncertain quantification as precise and clinically relevant as possible.

    Having many spelling mistakes in a text can greatly distract from the content of the text. Luckily, nowadays we have many great spell checkers at our disposal. Their integration in an editor like Visual Studio Code is however not trivial. This is why I wrote this blog post: To help you set up the spell checkers LTeX, Grammarly and CSpell in vscode. I will discuss the spell checkers in general, how we can add custom dictionaries, and finally how we can make further useful configurations.

    This post is part of my series on my LaTeX workflow. Typing formulas, diagrams and tables in LaTeX by hand can be an annoying task. So let me introduce three tools that can help with these three challenges. We will start with an explanation on how MathPix can be used to create the LaTeX code for formulas. Then we are looking at quiver, a tool for creating beautiful diagrams. And finally, the appropriately named Tables Generator is used to generate tables.

    In this overview post, I collect all my other blog posts regarding my LaTeX workflow. I will explain my LaTeX setup, the editor and PDF viewer I use, as well as my spell checking configuration. A further post is about my literature management. Finally, I list a few more helpful tools for creating LaTeX documents.
