Differentiable Ray Tracing for Telecommunications: PhD confirmation slides

PhD confirmation test slides.

As part of my PhD, I had to pass a confirmation test which consists in a relatively long oral presentation of my work and technical questions from my thesis committee.

Below are my slides. Most slides contain notes, which you can read by pressing S.


The following slides are made with RevealJS and are interactive!

Use basic keys like LEFT and RIGHT to navigate through slides, or F to go full screen.

The slides were generated using the Manim (The Manim Community Developers, 2022) animation engine and Manim Slides (Eertmans, 2023), one of my open source projects, to combine the animations into slides and later convert them in a RevealJS .html file.
