I often find math papers (of the standard TeX/LaTeX style) uneasy to understand and remember. They mostly involve text/language skills and memory, while my (mathematical) mind "works in pictures" from a great part.
Here I include a couple of my experiments with IPE - a graphical tool with text elements made by LaTeX.
Feedback is welcome. My experience with graphics and exposition in general were limited when I begun with IPE. The task for the future is to improve the graphical arrangement to indicate the structure of the information (use background areas filled with color to join the related items, for instance). Also the amount of information per slide sometimes exceeds certain comfortable level.
Handouts for talks at doctoral seminar
It is impossible to understand the content without the accompanying talk. But a few ways of visual enrichments in a math text can be observed here.
- Approximate kernel clustering (by A. Naor and S. Khot)
- Quick approximation to matrices (by A. Frieze and R. Kannan)
- A bound for the number of vertices of a polytope with applications (by A. Barvinok)
for the presentation of the paper Computing all maps into a sphere.
Significant portion should be self-explanatory.
