  4. 4. Why Beamer? Basic Programming Practical Matters Playing with Settings SummaryWhy Beamer? Advantages A Enjoy all the benefits of LTEX Mathematical typesetting is neater, e.g. n 1 if k = j, Pn (x) = Lj (x)yj , with Lj (xk ) = 0 otherwise. j=0 Formulae can be copied directly from a written report. Generates a PDF-document, which can be viewed under any operating system. No surprises next time you open the file on another computer.
