I don’t know very much about them but it’s an interesting topic and something fairly accessible to an audience of non-pure mathematicians.</p>
<p><a href="https://checkmyworking.com/misc/pgf/zero-knowledge%20proof/">Click here to see the slides.</a></p>
<p>I used <a href="http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/">deck.js</a>, along with the <a href="https://checkmyworking.com/cm-web-fonts/">Computer Modern web fonts</a> and <a href="http://www.mathjax.org/">MathJax</a>, to make the slides. I think it looks pretty nice! I’ve also uploaded my <a href="https://checkmyworking.com/misc/deckjs-maths-template.zip">template deck</a>, in case you want to build on it for your own presentations. It’s a bit big because it contains all the files needed to display the Computer Modern fonts on any browser.</p>presentationsweb-stuffhttps://checkmyworking.com/2012/10/slides-from-a-talk-about-zero-knowledge-protocols/Tue, 23 Oct 2012 23:00:00 GMT
- Slides – “Putting maths notation online”https://checkmyworking.com/2012/04/slides-putting-maths-notation-online/Christian Lawson-Perfect<p>On Monday I gave a talk at Birmingham at a workshop titled, <a href="http://mathstore.ac.uk/node/2096">Using social media to engage students in mathematical sciences</a>. I have no experience of doing that, but I was invited to talk a bit about <a href="https://checkmyworking.com/misc/hestemsoc%20talk/">putting maths notation online</a>. It’s basically just a collection of links to the posts I’ve written on the subject previously, but maybe big text in small slides will be more accessible.</p>presentationsweb-stuffhttps://checkmyworking.com/2012/04/slides-putting-maths-notation-online/Thu, 19 Apr 2012 23:00:00 GMT
- Slides about the princess in a castle puzzlehttps://checkmyworking.com/2012/04/slides-about-the-princess-on-a-castle-puzzle/Christian Lawson-Perfect<p>I gave a talk to our internal postgrad forum last week about the <a href="https://checkmyworking.com/2011/12/solving-the-princess-on-a-graph-puzzle/">princess in a castle puzzle</a>. I made some slides for it using <a href="http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/">deck.js</a>. They looked quite nice and I could just about get what I wanted in them, but I now know that using SVG in HTML is still an enormous faff if you want it to scale nicely, which is basically the only reason you would use SVG.</p>

<p>I’m not sure if you can follow along with the slides without me talking; maybe I’ll do a transcript with <a href="https://github.com/dseif/slide-drive">slide drive</a> later.</p>mathsjampresentationshttps://checkmyworking.com/2012/04/slides-about-the-princess-on-a-castle-puzzle/Sun, 01 Apr 2012 23:00:00 GMT
- Not-quite-slides from a talk about Turing completenesshttps://checkmyworking.com/2011/02/not-quite-slides-from-a-talk-about-turing-completeness/Christian Lawson-Perfect<p>Today I gave a talk to the department’s Postgrad Forum about Turing completeness, and universal computers. I couldn’t be bothered fiddling with Beamer to create a PDF slideshow, and I wanted to include some Youtube videos in my talk, so I made up my “slides” in HTML with a bit of CSS so it looks nice. MathJax provided LaTeX support for the maths I needed to write. The end result is a long page that I scrolled down as I talked. It seemed to work as well as a proper slideshow would’ve.</p>
<p><a href="https://checkmyworking.com/misc/pgf-turing-complete/">Here’s the page</a>, which doesn’t make much sense without the talking to go along with it, and <a href="https://checkmyworking.com/misc/pgf-turing-complete/nice.css">here’s the CSS file I made</a>, in case anyone else fancies doing the same thing.</p>computationpresentationshttps://checkmyworking.com/2011/02/not-quite-slides-from-a-talk-about-turing-completeness/Wed, 09 Feb 2011 00:00:00 GMT
