Presentations

- to create a suitable Latex file for a presentation, see my section on this
- hook your laptop up to a data projector: either Sh-F3 or Sh-F7 starts sending information from the laptop through to the projector
- You have several options for how to view the presentation
- as a pdf file, using acroread or another pdf viewer on a Windows PC.
The issue here is in creating a suitable pdf file
that shows both text and mathematical symbols clearly. Putting the
mathematical symbols in bold is the best solution I have come up with
so far for getting the math symbols to project well.

CTRL-SH-L shows the pdf file on the whole screen - as a pdf file using acroread or another pdf viewer on a Linux laptop.
At one point I had a working hypothesis that viewing a pdf file through
a Linux machine showed mathematical symbols more clearly than through
a Windows machine, but I haven't verified this.

CTRL-L shows the pdf file on the whole screen - as a postscript file. This should show both text and mathetical symbols nicely, but you need a ps viewer on the machine, which is not standard on Windows PCs.
- as a dvi file. As with postscript this should show text and symbols
clearly, but you need a dvi viewer. I believe there is a Windows dvi
viewer called '
`yap`'.
