LaTeX Resources for writing a thesis at UofT

The latest version of ut-thesis.cls. Part of TeXLive2009 and further. Can be used as long as Graduate School does not change requirements. One can use it with updated LaTeX packages. Victor 17:02, 10 January 2011 (EST)

  • Strongly recommended

As SGS does not specify fontsize, I suggest to use 12pts. Also as thesis are distributed electronically, load hyperref to add bookmarks, clickable TOC and index, clickable inner \ref ->\label and \cite -> \bibitem and external links (using \href{URL}{linkname}


\usepackage{microtype} %% provides better handling of rubberspaces and better protrusion
\usepackage[leqno]{mathtools} % loads amsmath and fixes some errors and provides some extra commands
\usepackage{amsthm} % or \usepackage[amsthm,thmmarks,hyperref]{ntheorem} for a better control, but there is a bug I fixed in the coveter installation of theorem

%%% Other packages especially graphicx as needed

\usepackage{hyperref} %% in modern distribution no switches are usually needed. 
%% For older versions \usepackage[pdftex,bookmarks,pdfnewwindow,plainpages=false,unicode,pdfencoding=auto]{hyperref}
\usepackage{hypernat} %required if hyperref is used as well
  • Create Master.tex with all the headers and Chapter1.tex, Chapter2.tex, .... without them. If you are working on Chapter1 only in Master.tex put
%% In preamble

%% In Body

\include[Chapter1.tex, Chapter2.tex,Chapter3.tex, Chapter4.tex]


Then \ref to other Chapters will be filled properly
