beamer and tikz mindmap

hi,

I am trying to use tikz mindmap inside beamer presentation. By default
the graph is too large to fit inside a slide. Hence I put a scale=0.4
in the option of tikz environment. Quite contrary to what intuitively
it should do, tikz generates graph with overlapped root node and other
concept node. It looks like that only the branches connecting the root
node and other concept nodes get scaled. What I want is to scale
everything properly. Is there an easy way to do it?

The other way is non convenient neither: generate graph separately and
then insert it in the presentation. The white margins around the
mindmap makes it hard to align the graph on the slide.

This problem was recently a topic on the pgf-users mailing list. You
have to use the transform shape option. See the discussion thread for
more details:

What does \ProvidesFileRCS do/mean?

I got the following warning message from LaTeX

------------
(/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/generic/pgf-1.10/latex/pgf/ 
compatibility/pgflibraryshapes.sty

Package pgf Warning: This package is obsolete. Use \usetikzlibrary  
{shapes} instead on input line 12.
------------

OK, I'm an agreeable guy so I did use "\usetikzlibrary{shapes}"  
instead..

Then I got a fatal error

------------
(/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/generic/pgf-1.10/generic/pgf/ 
libraries/
pgflibrarytikzshapes.code.tex
! Use of \ProvidesFileRCS doesn't match its definition.
l.10 \ProvidesFileRCS[
                       v\pgfversion] $Header: /cvsroot/pgf/pgf/ 
generic/pgf/li...
------------

I am not sure what is wrong...

Help gratefully received..

Gordon

Errors of this kind are usually due to leftovers from previous
installed versions of PGF. My best tip is to browse the pgf-users
mailing list and user forum [1] archives. I think similar problems
have been discussed before. (unfortunately I am not familiar with
teTeX ). This has also been discussed on comp.text.tex occasionally.

graph with tikz

Hello :)

Tikz is a fabulous tool and I await the new version impatiently.

If you like the graph theory, a new package with Tikz/Pgf
  to create graphs.

tkz-berge.sty :
http://www.altermundus.fr/pages/downloads/tkz-berge.sty

documentation (in french but with a lot of examples)

http://www.altermundus.fr/pages/downloads/doc-TKZberge.pdf

Looks great...

The manual is easy enough to follow even for my long-ago schoolboy  
French... (even *I* can translate "liste of numbers" into "list of  
numbers"  :-) )

One question though about your terminology for the macros... in some  
places it doesn't match with normal graph theory terminology:

For example, your wheel graph (\grWheel, Example 47) doesn't seem to  
be a wheel, but rather a star, while your regular graph (\grRegular,  
Example 49) is not actually regular, but is in fact a wheel...

Yes i make a mistake . In fact I use the terminology find here :

http://mathworld.wolfram.com/topics/SimpleGraphs.html

Thanks i need to modify this...but i make actually a special  
documentation with "named" graphs
A gallery of graphs.

Great, just great! Many thanks for sharing your work.

Some comments: 

1) the definition of the Heawood graph is wrong. It works
for me if in the definition of \grHeawood I change the line

{\nextmod{\x}{14}{1}\Edge(\cmdGR <at> classique <at> prefix\x)(\cmdGR <at> classique <at> prefix\thenext)}
                  ^
to

{\nextmod{\x}{14}{2}\Edge(\cmdGR <at> classique <at> prefix\x)(\cmdGR <at> classique <at> prefix\thenext)}
                  ^
2) In the icosahedron graph, the edge

\Edge(a0)(b5)

is missing. Also, I do not understand why the size of the "inner"
triangle does not seem to be change if I change the options. I can
only get a nice, small icosahedron with parameters like:
 \begin{tikzpicture}[scale=0.5]
    \tikzstyle{NormalVertexStyle}=[shape        = circle,%
                                   shading      = ball,%
                                   ball color   = orange!60!black,%

I don't understand the problem ....

The size of the first triangle is determined by RA

The three points are on a circle determined by RA.

All the points are on three circles

RA --> first triangle
