Box around equation

To have a box around and equation just add:

\boxed{ EQUATION }

Resize equation to fit width of a page

To fit the size of an equation we need to use \resizebox{factor\hsize}{!}{$ theequation $}. See the following example:

\begin{equation}

\resizebox{.9\hsize}{!}

{$

\Pi = \frac{EI}{2} \left[ \int_0^L \left(\frac{d\theta}{ds}\right)^2 ds + \alpha_m \int_0^L \left( \frac{du_s}{ds} \right)^2 ds + \alpha_s \int_0^L \left( \frac{du_n}{ds} - \theta \right)^2 \right] - W

$}

\end{equation}

 

\multirow and \multicolumn commands

To use \multirow we have to:

\usepackage{multirow}

\multirow{number of rows}{width}{text}

The text argument's natural width is used when placing * in the width argument.

To use \multicolumn we have to:

\multicolumn{number of columns}{alignment: l, c, r}{text}

 

Beamer template for a thesis presentation

The following is a template that I use to make presentations. Something special about this template is that some colors can be defined (AzulOsc and AzulCla) using \definecolor command. By searching the web, I found a way to include text on the first page to refer to other names that have to be there. It basically inserts a table inside \institute. I guess it is not a good practice, but it works very good. You can copy all from here to the end and paste it on the editor to run and see how it works.

\documentclass{beamer}

 

%Color definition

\usepackage{xcolor}

\definecolor{AzulOsc}{cmyk}{0.70,0.22,0,0.25}

\definecolor{AzulCla}{cmyk}{0.1,0,0,0.1}
