Below are a set of techniques.

# Picture in tabular

src: https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/19083

```
\begin{tabular}{lll}
\raisebox{-.5\height}{\includegraphics[scale=0.25]{example-image}} & text & text\\
\end{tabular}
```

yields

# tikz baseline in math mode

src: https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/58420

```
\begin{equation}
n\cdot
\tikz [anchor=base, baseline] \node [minimum height=2em,draw=black] {$m$}; \cdot
\tikz [anchor=base, baseline] \node [draw=black] {a}; \cdot
b
\end{equation}
```

yields

Moreover, placing `baseline=(X.base)`

option in tikzpicture will align tikzpicture according to the text. See this answer for more details.

# algorithm2e: comment after if

```
\begin{algorithm}[t]
\If(\tcp*[h]{comment}){$k = K$}{do stuff}
\If{$k \neq K$}{do other stuff}
\end{algorithm}
```

# Indexing math symbols

`\index{k@$k$}`

and `\index{c@$\mathcal{C}$}`

. `\index{a sterisk@$\ast$}`

including a space after the a to make sure it sorts at the beginning.
