Here is a simple example of a beamer document. Say that I have an appendix called A and an appendix B. In appendix A, I have three slides. This should appear with numbering A.1, A.2 and A.3, while in appendix B, I have two pages. These should appear as: B.1 and B.2

I have done these things so far:

\title{My title} 



The aim of this presentation is to provide insight to 4 papers. These papers talk in general about the following topics: 

\item Spatial Equilibrium  \\
\item Inter-temporal dynamics \\
\item Marine Reserves \\
\item Exploitation of resources across space


\section{Brock $\&$ Xepapadeas}

\begin{frame}[label = Brock-Xepapadeas]
They develop a local stability analysis. The problem that they have to solve is                      \hyperlink{model}{\beamergotobutton{here}}:

\item Spatial domain is a circle. 
\item Current value Hamiltonian suggests that negative diffusion means that the movement in space is from low shadow values to higher ones. Authors identify a new mechanism, ODI, used to study pattern formation.
\item They use \textit{LQ approximation} to check the stability of the system.
\item (Main finding): If problem has quadratic payoff, linear transition functions, then the optimal dynamics are unstable.
\item Main target: Analyze the diffusion induced instabilty. 

Diffusion may act as a stabilizing force when FOSS is unstable. The only way for this to happen is if we have a negative eignevalue.


\item Possible extension by the introduction of another state variable.
\item Spatial domain can be enriched (\textit{e.g.}, use fractal framework) 
\item The study of diffusion by \textit{kernels}.
\item Use stochasticity 

% Hyperlinks should be placed to appendix

% Appendix part for hyperlinks

\begin{frame}[label = model]
The model: 
    \underset{\{u(t,z)\}}{max}\displaystyle  & \int_{z_0}^{z_1}\int_{0}^{\infty}e^{-\rho         t}f\left(x(t,z), u(t,z)\right)\,dtdz \\
        & \text{s.t.} \quad \frac{\partial x(t,z)}{\partial t} = g(x(t,z), u(t,z)) +         D\cdot\frac{\partial^2 x(t,z)}{\partial z^2} \text{,} \quad x(t_0,z) \, \text{given} \\
& \text{with spatial boundary conditions} \notag \\
& (x(t,z_0)) = x(t,z_1) = \bar{x}(t) \text{,} \quad \forall t \, \text{the space is a         circle}

Using the etoolbox package you might try to add this piece of code after the \appendix command

  \begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=.333333\paperwidth,ht=2.25ex,dp=1ex,center]{author in head/foot}%
    \usebeamerfont{author in head/foot}\insertshortauthor~~\beamer@ifempty{\insertshortinstitute}{}{(\insertshortinstitute)}
  \begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=.333333\paperwidth,ht=2.25ex,dp=1ex,center]{title in head/foot}%
    \usebeamerfont{title in head/foot}\insertshorttitle
  \begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=.333333\paperwidth,ht=2.25ex,dp=1ex,right]{date in head/foot}%
    \usebeamerfont{date in head/foot}\insertshortdate{}\hspace*{2em}


The first part between \makeatletter and \makeatother is to suppress the /<total number of slides> thanks to this answer.

In order for it to work you just need to add:


before the \begin{frame} command each time you change of Appendix part (from A to B for instance).

  • Your code is correct. But I tried with "\setcounter{app}{0}" instead of "\setcounter{app}{1}". Because in the second case it starts with page numbered B.1 Sep 13, 2013 at 0:18
  • @PSK Are you using \resfstepcounter{app} before the first frame of the appendix A? In that case yes you need to start at 0.

  • @Ludovic.C Yes, that's right. Sep 13, 2013 at 22:05
