I would like to draw a tree in tex that is more like a sketch of a tree: It should contain variable node numbers.

Important is, that the dots are contained in the tree drawn. Is that possible with an automated command?

You see, since my painting skills are limitated I don't want to use TikZ and simply add the nodes this tree contains. I would like to say: Here is my structure, draw it for me. All I found is drawing trees with complete defined nodes.

EDIT

Without any style definitions here is a minimal example of what I thought about:

I would prefer the dashed line to be just three/four dots.

Perhaps I don't understand the question...

Without TikZ but with pict2e; you need something to draw nice straight lines, here a code. If you want to automate the drawing, you can create some macros with dimensions for the arguments. It's easy to build a macro to place a circle and the label.

I would like to draw a picture that reflects some file structure. Below code works almost as expected. I need to adjust the connections between nodes so they don't start from the center of the bottom of the parent node but from near the left bottom c

I am drawing a tree with tikz, namely, using tikz-qtree-compat for simpler syntax. On the tree there can be nodes of different height but then branches become messy. I want to add an instruction where distance between the south point of a mother node

I am trying to draw a randomized tree using TikZ, that is, I'm looking for a macro \randtree{NN}{x} that attaches a randomized tree of maximum depth x to a node named NN. The nodes need not be visible or marked, I just want the lines. I did a bit of

I need to draw a quite abstract tree. This tree will visualize proof substituting in natural deduction (proof theory). I have a deduction (let's call it 'D1') of A with open assumption B and a deduction (let's call it 'D2') of B with open assumption

Is there some good tool for drawing binary trees with labels that are rendered by latex? I would need to have the tree node placement done automatically for me, because there are too many labels to calculate their placing manually. To be more specifi

I would like to align a TikZ tree with another node by considering the tree as a whole like as if it was a node with anchors. For the moment I am only able to align the root node of the tree, not the whole tree itself. I use PGF 2.10. The following p

This question is directly related to Aligning TikZ trees with other nodes that I asked some time ago. By the time I asked the question I didn't realize that aligning multiple trees was not the same as aligning one tree. Indeed, the answer proposed by

I need to draw syntactical trees for a natural language. The problem is that I need all the leafs to be parallel. How the other nodes are sorted in relation to the other at the same depth is not important. In practical use you would a sentence at the

This code draws a tree, but it's not in the functional style. tree[set_, m_] := Module[{θ, mz, my, temp, k, i, p1, p2, a, b, c, d, e, f}, θ = Pi/6; mz = {{Cos[θ], -Sin[θ]}, {Sin[θ], Cos[θ]}}; my = {{Cos[-θ], -Sin[-θ]}, {Sin[-θ], Cos[-θ]}}; temp = set
