\verbatim [beamer package]

Once again working on my slides for the AMSI Lecture 2012 tour, it took me a while to get the following LaTeX code (about the family reunion puzzle) to work: \begin{frame} \slidetitle{A family meeting} \begin{block}{Random switch of couples} \only<1>{ \begin{itemize} \item Pick two couples at random with probabilities proportional to the

\STATE [algorithmic package]

I fought with my LαTεX compiler this morning as it did not want to deal with my code: looking on forums for incompatibilities between beamer and algorithmic, and adding all kinds of packages, to no avail. Until I realised one \STATE was missing: (This is connected with my AMSI public lecture on simulation, obviously!) Filed

Creating a Presentation with LaTeX Beamer – Frame Transitions

Transitions are often used in presentations to break up the presentation and to keep the audience awake, but often the outcome is irritation/distraction with text or other objects flying on or off the screen from different directions. As such they should be used sparingly if at all in a talk. LaTeX beamer has a simple

Creating a Presentation with LaTeX Beamer – Using Overlays

Overlays can be used in a LaTeX beamer presentation to reveal parts of a slide sequentially, which can be a useful way of imparting information to your audience.

Creating a Presentation with LaTeX Beamer – Including Images from Graphics Files

It will often be more efficient to generate graphics in an external software package and then include these files in a LaTeX beamer presentation.

Creating a Presentation with LaTeX Beamer – Equations and tikz

Many presentations created using LaTeX beamer included mathematical equations and these can be easily included in a presentation and in this post we will consider using the tikz package to add various interesting elements to equations, such as lines between text on a slide and part of an equation. Fast Tube by Casper The examples on this

Creating a Presentation with LaTeX Beamer – Boxes

We can add coloured boxes with text or mathematics into a LaTeX beamer presentation which is particularly useful if we have definitions, theorem or computer code to highlight this information that may not be so accessible within a paragraph of text.

Creating a Presentation with LaTeX Beamer – Tables

Tables of information can be included in a LaTeX beamer presentation in the same way that they would be incorporated into any other LaTeX document. The tabular environment is used and, if necessary, the tables could be numbered but this probably doesn’t make as much sense as labelling and numbering tables within an article or

When writing a presentation we might want to use a bullet list to highlight some key points that might be lost if they are part of a large body of text. We can use the standard LaTeX environments for creating lists within a beamer presentation in a straightforward way. Fast Tube by Casper The bullet lists can
