These are slides of talks or short courses I have been giving over the last years.
I don't expect them to be comprehensible if you have not been in the talk
(no comment about the contraposition) but still they might be of some use.

For portability and readability they are provided in PDF format.

How I make slides

The beamer package for LaTeX has made this easy.

An example is given by This TeX file of a LaTeX introduction given for our graduate students.

The font I'm using is Syntax (designed in 1969 by H.E.Meyer), which to me looks better on slides than Computer Modern (Sans). (It incidentally also seems to be the Corporate font of RWTH Aachen where I got my PhD.) The font is a postscript Type 1 font which I bought on CD and converted for LaTeX using font installation software written by Alan Hoening.
