As with most programs there is some header material, then the program begins, then it ends.
In La Te X the header starts with where * is 10pt or 12pt and sets the default font size and format may be "article", "report", "amsart", "book" or various other options.
If you find any problem with it, email me (mlerma at math dot northwestern dot edu).
The thesis templates have been created to make it easy to prepare your thesis using La Te X while adhering to the MIT Thesis Specifications.
This is particularly important if you are trying to typeset tables where both “|” and lowercase L are used in the declaration.
You will now have to open some of the files that you downloaded and edit them.That page also includes pointers to the La Te X source for sample posters that you can use to guide you when creating your own poster. Additional information and answers to frequently asked questions can be found the graduate school’s Doctoral Degree Programs page. thesis, you have to follow the specifications of the graduate school.A thesis in mathematics is invariably written in some form of La Te X.It is much better at handling equations than Word type programs.It will also automatically number theorems, lemmas, definitions and bibliographic entries. For Windows most people would download pro Te X while Mac users would need Mac Te X.The various La Te X processing programs can be found at CTAN. Extra packages can be included to handle specialized needs such as graphics, commutative diagrams, chemistry notation and even chess moves. When you run the program it creates your document as output.It is not like Word where you see the final result as you type.Here are descriptions of the set of files prepared by Ben Salisbury, listed (as best as possible) in order of priority.The file below is a template for using the file for a thesis at the Mathematics Department of Northwestern.
