Some LaTeX errors and their solutions (part I)

leave a comment »

Hi all,

So, I have started to set up my PhD thesis LaTeX files. This means starting from scratch with clean and empty files. And of course, each chapter has its own tex file and the style and metadata (title, author, etc.) definitions will also be placed in their own files.

To make things interesting I upgraded WinEdt to version 7 (Version 8 is out but my university does not have a license yet). I also upgraded >all< LaTeX packages to their latest version (if supervisors can not compile your papers, there is something wrong, see problem below).

Of course, during all these things I encountered issues/challenges. Below I would like to briefly summarize them. I hope that someone, possibly future me, find them useful. (oh, how I look forward to the day that Google brings me to my own solution blog post)

LaTeX template for (TU/e style) Master thesis

with 3 comments

Hi all,

Writing a thesis, being it a Master or PhD one, works best using LaTeX (unless you like fixing layout and referencing issues in M$ Word).
However, finding or creating a good style is sometimes difficult. And often you just want to use one you just saw. Well, apparently some of you like the style I used for my Masters thesis. So, I want to share this with all of you.

In my opinion it is a good clean style for any Masters thesis, although this one has a titlepage specifically for TU/e (Eindhoven University of Technology) use, but is easily adaptable to any institution.

Soon I will start writing my PhD thesis so an updated version for a PhD thesis will be published in a couple of months (I hope :)).

Please find below the LaTeX files needed to jump-start your own Master thesis in LaTeX (you will start with 27 pages without having typed a single word!).

This style has been the joint work of Thijs Nugteren and myself, so kudos also go to him.

If you use this style, please let us know this in the comments. And when you’re done, be sure to share a link with us so we can be proud with you!

Also, if you have applied any improvements, please share them too, so others can benefit.

But most of all: have fun writing!!!

 

Files:

LaTeX thesis template

Zip file with all the LaTeX files
(2019-08-01: Unfortunately the original link broke, and I managed not to save it in my TU/e backup files :(, if anyone still has it please contact me!)

Example theses: Thijs Nugteren (using an older version of the style), Joos Buijs, Danny van Heumen

Note:

You are free to use and adjust this style without referencing (although it would be nice of course đŸ˜‰ ).However, this also means that we can not provide any support to customize the style to your needs or help you solve any LaTeX issues (there are many, many resources for that to be found online).
