Thesis layout

For a scaled-down version of the LaTeX main file for my Ph.D. thesis see the phdthesis repository on GitHub which contains two files that might be useful:

  • diss-cpp-header.tex includes comments on which package does what.
  • chapterhead.tex defines the chapter heading I used.

I won’t paste my full makefile, but you can compile the above using something along the following lines

latex $(TARGET).tex
bibtex $(TARGET) || echo Suppressed BIBTEX error
makeindex $(TARGET).idx
makeindex $(TARGET).nlo -s -o $(TARGET).nls
latex $(TARGET).tex

Possibly it’s necessary to re-run some of these commands until all links are set.
