Our experience hitherto justifies us in believing that nature is the realization of the simplest conceivable mathematical ideas. I am convinced that we can discover by means of purely mathematical cnstructions the concepts and laws connecting them with each other, which furnish the key to the understanding of natural phenomena… Albert Einstein Herbert Spencer lecture, 1933

Highlighting in beamer

A package to prepare beautiful presentations

I have collected in a little package some commands I use with beamer to highlight text and math formulas.

Combining the power of beamer with the one of TikZ gives beautiful results.

I have created a collection of commands which use TikZ and its style management to highlight and comment some part of math formulas, and to present for a short moment some text (fleeting box).

This package can be found here as a zip archive: beamerhighlight.zip

The source code is commented and an example tex file is given. I hope that this will be sufficient to understand the commands and the style management. Reading the TikZ documentation could help if you want to get more from these commands.

Any suggestions to improve these commands are welcome.

If you are a newcomer to beamer and if you understand french, you can find my lecture on beamer here (and more generally on LaTeX), with the accompanying video on this page.
