This question already has an answer here:

I am a totally new to beamer and I just can't seem to figure out why beamer won't let me include equations. I run the following code and it does not work. I try to include {equation*} but it still does not work. Any help would be appreciated

\documentclass{beamer}
%%%%%%%
\begin{document}
%%%%%%%
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Modified CAPM }

\begin{equation}%
\begin{split}
R-Rf& =\alpha_1EU+\alpha_2US+\beta_1MktRf+\beta_2EUFund*MktRf+\epsilon
\end{split}
\end{equation}

\end{frame}
\end{document}

Also it does not work when I update the code to simply:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
R-Rf=\alpha_1EU+\alpha_2US+\beta_1MktRf+\beta_2EUFund*MktRf+\epsilon
\end{frame}
\end{document}

    Welcome to the site. For your information, adding four spaces before code will typeset the code properly in your question. Alternately, highlight the code, and click the {} button in the window. I have done this for you. – Steven B. Segletes Jan 13 '14 at 18:15
  • The errors include: ! misplaced alignment tab character &. !missing $ inserted !missing $ inserted 0 pages are made – KW_LostNube Jan 13 '14 at 18:18
  • The above code also does not print pages – KW_LostNube Jan 13 '14 at 18:21

    You can not use math without math mode. Use equation environment like you'd posted before. The code above requires $...$ to type formulas. – Sigur Jan 13 '14 at 18:22

solved running C:\Pragram Files\MiKTeX\miktex\bin\updmap.exe, thanks @UlrikeFischer I found it eventually on this page--> beamer over miktex 2.9 is not working with math environment

  • On that basis, I'm marking as a dupe and asking Ulrike to post an answer on that other question. – Joseph Wright Jan 16 '14 at 6:56
