# Theorem Inside Tabular Environment

I'm putting together a Beamer presentation and want a theorem to appear on the left side of the slide and a picture on the right side. I tried to accomplish this with:

\begin{frame}
\begin{tabular}{lc}
\begin{theorem}theorem here\end{theorem}&picture here
\end{tabular}
\end{frame}


The result is a bunch of "missing endgroup" errors. Can I accomplish what I want with tabular or some other environment?

You could place the theorem and the picture in separate, side-by=side minipage environments:

\RequirePackage[demo]{graphicx} % just for this example
\documentclass{beamer}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{A theorem and a picture, side-by-side}
\begin{minipage}{0.48\textwidth}
\begin{theorem}theorem here\end{theorem}
\end{minipage}
\hspace*{\fill} % spacing between the minipages
\begin{minipage}{0.48\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{demo.pdf}
\end{minipage}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

When I use overprint within the minipages, the resulting output has the minipages stacked vertically for some reason. Wrapping the entire business in a tabular (a minipage in each cell) seems to keep the minipages side by side. –  Austin Mohr Mar 9 '14 at 20:21
@AustinMohr - Please see the augmented answer for a demo of how the two minipages can co-exist side-by-side. How are you setting up the picture? –  Mico Mar 9 '14 at 20:40

If you'd like to stick with a tabular, you can do so by using a paragraphy style column:

  \begin{tabular}{p{.5\textwidth}c}


Here's a complete MWE.

% arara: pdflatex
\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{tabular}{p{.5\textwidth}c}
\begin{theorem}theorem here
\end{theorem} & picture here
\end{tabular}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

You may want to add @{} to the left of the first column and to the right of the second column to eliminate the unneeded (and probably undesirable) intercolumn whitespaces. –  Mico Mar 9 '14 at 20:18
