Details

See the http://rmarkdown.rstudio.com/beamer_presentation_format.html{online documentation} for additional details on using the beamer_presentation format.

Creating Beamer output from R Markdown requires that LaTeX be installed.

For more information on markdown syntax for presentations see http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/demo/example9/producing-slide-shows-with-pandoc.html{producing slide shows with pandoc}.

R Markdown documents can have optional metadata that is used to generate a document header that includes the title, author, and date. For more details see the documentation on R Markdown metadata.

R Markdown documents also support citations. You can find more information on the markdown syntax for citations in the http://rmarkdown.rstudio.com/authoring_bibliographies_and_citations.html{Bibliographies and Citations} article in the online documentation.
