+
+	INTRODUCTION
+
+This is the "new" version of the LaTeX style file package for writing
+dissertations at the University of Texas at Austin.
+
+The latest version of this document/package can be obtained from
+http://www.ph.utexas.edu/~laser/craigs_stuff/LaTeX/.
+
+I have received my Ph.D. and have accepted a position with the Los
+Alamos National Laboratory, to which I will be moving in September.
+As much as I hate to say it, I will no longer be able to help with
+LaTeX questions from the UT dissertation community.
+
+I will transfer this page to the Office of Graduate Studies shortly.
+The new URL isn't defined yet, but I will place a ``redirect'' at
+the URL listed above to send your browser to the correct location
+when the transition occurs.
+
+If your installation of LaTeX is missing any style files used in this
+document (most likely with a \usepackage{package-name.sty} command at
+the beginning of disstemplate.tex), take a look at the link on this
+page to ``Frequently Requested Style Files'' or on the Comprehensive
+TeX Archive Network, \url{http://www.ctan.org}.
+
+I have had the output reviewed by Lynn Renegar, the Doctoral Degree
+Evaluator, aka. "The Ruler Lady." She said this template does produce
+an acceptable dissertation and an acceptable PDF file.
+
+I have also had the output reviewed by Mike Feissli, the Master's
+Degree Plan Evaluator. He said this template does produce acceptable
+theses and reports except for the page order (which is different than
+that of a dissertation). IF YOU ARE WRITING A MASTER'S THESIS OR REPORT
+SEE HIS REVIEW COMMENTS BELOW. MASTER'S DOCUMENTS THAT USE THE DOCTORAL
+PAGE ORDER WILL BE REJECTED.
+
+			==================
+
+This is version 5 of the style package file. It addresses:
+
+	- Proper inclusion of only one appendix.
+	- An illustration of additional, non-tabular text after
+	  a table (the German declension table).
+
+This is version 4 of the style package file addressed:
+
+	- Proper reading from the user's main .tex file of non-default
+	  values for \degree, \degreeabbr, and \previousdegrees for
+	  master's documents.
+
+Version 3 of the style package file addressed:
+
+	- Proper numbering and formatting of sub-sub-sections on both
+	  the sub-sub-section's page and in the table of contents.
+	- Proper formatting of pages for master's theses and reports.
+	- The difference in page order between the doctoral dissertation
+	  (the document default) and master's theses and reports.
+
+Version 2 of the style package file addressed:
+
+	- APA style referencing,
+	- Top and bottom margin problems,
+	- Vita page number problems in index,
+	- Problems with placement of page number on second page
+	  (and most likely following pages) of index.
+
+See the section, "ADDITIONAL COMMENTS," below for comments on these points.
+
+
+
+	DOCTORAL REVIEW COMMENTS
+
+Lynn Renegar's comments [and mine]:
+	- The formatting requirements are based on:
+
+		Turabian, Kate L. / A manual for writers of term papers,
+		theses, and dissertations. / Chicago
+
+		LB 2369 T8	PCL Stacks
+		LB 2369 T8	Undergraduate Library
+		(and other places on campus)
+
+		If you follow the Office of Graduate Studies' guidelines,
+		however, there is no need to refer to Kate Turabian's book.
+
+	- There must be NO blank pages in a dissertation [this template
+		produces none].
+	- A fly page is not needed for the electronic document (it's only
+		intended to protect the copyright page when the printed
+		version is being bound)[this template produces none].
+	- Eventhough the official OGS instructions show the word,
+		"certifies," with a capital "C", proper English usage
+		should have it as lower-case. [This template produces
+		dissertations with a lower-case "C".]
+	- TWO supervisors, MAXIMUM [eventhough this template can properly
+		handle three].
+	- SIX committee members, including supervisor(s), MAXIMUM
+		[eventhough this template can properly handle seven].
+	- There must be NO titles (professor or Ph.D., etc.) for your
+		supervisor or committee members [this template adds none].
+	- The following pages are optional:
+		- copyright page
+		- dedication page
+		- acknowledgements page
+		- abstract page
+	    [I have not checked to see if this template produces the
+		correct page numbering if these are left out.]
+	- For multiple appendices [as the example document of this template
+		has], the lines in the table of contents for each individual
+		appendix [e.g., the one in the example document that says,
+			Appendix A. Lerma's Appendix		29  ]
+		should be indented from the left margin under the line
+		that says, "Appendices." [e.g., the one in the example
+		document that says,
+			Appendices				28  ]
+		[This template produces lines flush with the left margin,
+		but that is acceptable to her now.]
+	- Use the quote environment, not the quotation environment,
+		for quotes more than four lines long. Line spacing in
+		the block quote of space-and-a-half is acceptable.
+	- An index is acceptable and should be after the bibliography
+		but before the vita [as the one in the example document is].
+	- Your bibliography should at least include the materials cited in
+		the text of your disseration; it may also include
+		references not cited.
+
+
+	MASTER'S REVIEW COMMENTS
+
+Mike Feissli's comments [and mine]:
+
+	- The proper page order for master's documents is
+		- copyright
+		- title page
+		- signature page
+		- <remainder of document>
+		[For a dissertation, the Committee Certification
+		(signature) page is before the title page.]
+	- For master's documents nothing is permitted to come between
+		the bibliography and the vita; if you have an index
+		it must be before the bibliography.
+		[For a dissertation, the index must be after the
+		bibliography (like a book) but before the vita (which
+		isn't usually part of a book). The placement of the
+		index in the formatted document is controlled by the
+		placement of the one line command \printindex% in the
+		.tex file. Its placement is now well commented in
+		disstemplate.tex.]
+
+
+	ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
+
+1.  In the first version of this README, I said,
+
+	I inferred from Lynn Renegar's comments that she finds
+	the APA style unacceptable and have removed it from this
+	template (eventhough Miguel Lerma had it commented out
+	at the end of his .sty file).
+
+    I have since found out that this statement was NOT correct. The only
+    thing to which Lynn Renegar objected was the typical APA style of not
+    putting the page number 1 on the first page. I received comments from
+    a friend who did try out APA style referencing and have put them in a
+    separate file, README.APA. Please look in that file for suggestions if
+    you want to use APA style referencing.
+
+2.  I have made all the chapters and appendicies separate files which
+    are referenced in disstemplate.tex by include statements such as,
+
+		\include{chapter-introduction}
+
+    This makes the disstemplate.tex file shorter and easier to modify
+    to be your own dissertation.
+
+3.  I have not checked to see that this template correctly handles
+    the changes needed for a Doctor of Musical Arts. I know "Dissertation"
+    needs to be changed to "Treatise" and there are some changes on the
+    committee certification page I don't recall. I believe this template
+    does not correctly handle all of the changes needed. If you run into
+    difficulty, see Lynn Renegar (232-3630). I _might_ be able to help out
+    during the Spring of 2002.
+
+4.  This template does not explicitly produce:
+
+	- a glossary,
+	- a List of Illustrations,
+	- a Nomenclature page, or,
+	- a List of Supplemental Files.
+
+5.  I have found that the version of the software used to generate
+    the PostScript and way you print the PostScript file effects
+    the size of the top and bottom margins. The document I printed
+    for Lynn Renegar's review obviously met the Office of Graduate
+    Studies requirements (except for one page, see 7 below). Since
+    then I have compiled my document on a different operating system
+    and have found that it no longer meets OGS requirements.
+
+    To solve this problem I have moved the command that defines
+    the top margin from the style file, utdiss2-nn.sty, to
+    disstemplate.tex. There are instructions in disstemplate.tex
+    for changing the value of \topmargin to what you need.
+
+6.  The page number on the second and following pages of the index is
+    in the wrong place (it's lower than it should be). It was in the
+    wrong place on the officially reviewed copy but was not caught (in
+    a microfilmed version, the page number would not appear on the film).
+    I specifically asked Lynn Renegar about this and she said she was
+    not concerned. I did NOT ask Mike Feissli about this.
+
+    I do not yet know the cause of this problem nor its solution.
+
+7.  If listed in the index, the vita page will be listed with the
+    wrong page number, specifically the first page of the index.
+    Apparently the commands which make up the index expect the
+    index to be the last thing in the document. We, however, must
+    put the Vita last. The fix to this is to not list the Vita
+    or anything else in the Vita in the index.
+
+
+
+	COMPILING YOUR DOCUMENT
+
+First copy the template file, disstemplate.tex, to another file name
+with the .tex suffix (e.g., mydiss.tex). Modify the new file to make it
+your dissertation. (It's always best to leave a copy of the original on
+your system so you can refer to it later.) To do this on a Linux or
+other Unix system, execute the following commands,
+
+		cp disstemplate.tex mydiss.tex
+		chmod 644 mydiss.tex
+
+The file Makediss is a shell script (program) for running on Linux or
+other Unix systems. You will need to edit it and enter the name of your
+dissertation file before you run it. On the line that begins,
+
+		DISS="./disstemplate"
+
+replace the word disstemplate with the name of your file (without the
+.tex suffix).
+
+If you are using a different operating system, the following is the list
+of commands you will have to run to properly create your
+dissertation's PostScript file:
+
+
+	Copy the file disstemplate.tex to another file name with the .tex
+		suffix (e.g., mydiss.tex). Modify the new file to make it
+		your dissertation. (It's always best to leave a copy of
+		the original on your system so you can refer to it later.)
+
+	Copy the current version of utdiss2-nn.sty to utdiss2.sty.
+
+	Execute the following commands,
+
+	latex mydiss		(latex generates mydiss.aux)
+	bibtex mydiss		(bibtex generates mydiss.bbl)
+	latex mydiss		(latex generates new mydiss.aux)
+	latex mydiss		(latex resolves cross references)
+	makeindex mydiss	(makeindex reads mydiss.idx and
+				   generates mydiss.ind with the index
+				   entries sorted)
+	latex mydiss		(latex includes the Index)
+	latex mydiss		(latex generates the final version of
+				   mydiss.dvi)
+
+
+You will now have your dissertation in a .dvi file. You have two choices,
+
+	1) To print from the .dvi file, execute,
+
+	dvips mydiss
+
+	2) To make the postscript file from the .dvi file
+
+	dvips mydiss -o
+
+The final thing that needs to be done for the OGS is to convert the
+PostScript file into a single Adobe PDF file. I have not yet explored this
+problem. Lynn Renegar said that some approaches to coversion caused the page
+numbers to be incorrect. I cannot clarify that situation yet.
+
+
+
+	GOODBYE AND GOOD LUCK
+
+I have re-written the example document (disstemplate.tex) to be more
+explicit in its comments about what has to be done, hopefully that will
+be sufficient to get you on the road with your own dissertation. If you
+have any questions, however, email me at mccluskey@mail.utexas.edu.
+I cannot promise I will be able to help you immediately or very much
+since I also am working on a dissertation of my own during the Spring 2002
+semester.

+
+The first comments below are from Lynn Renegar, the OGS doctoral evaluator,
+edited to remove comments not applicable to APA style referencing.
+
+The second comments below are from a friend of mine who tried out APA style
+referencing with utdiss2.
+
+					Craig McCluskey
+					29 November 2001
+
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+It is OK to use APA style. The only comment I made about it is that we do
+require there to be a page number on the first page of text (arabic 1) and
+students have told me that APA doesn't place a number on that page (although
+it is counted). If that is true, then it just means you have to put a number
+on that page. Otherwise, APA guidelines (so far as I know) don't conflict
+with ours.
+
+All I do when a dissertation is turned in to me is require that it be correct.
+How you get it that way is up to you. It must be submitted as one file in PDF.
+It must conform to the guidelines in our formatting booklet. Those guidelines
+have not changed (except for the Committee Certification of Approved Version
+page replacing the former signature page).
+
+As I said, the problem people seemed to be having was with conversion to PDF
+-- specifically making the document into one file. I don't know what the
+problem is, I'm only reporting what I was told.
+
+Thanks, Lynn Renegar (doctoral evaluator)
+
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+Please do take off the scary warning about APA not meeting Lynn Renegar's
+guidelines; she verified that APA style is fine in general.
+
+In any case, the APA-specific files on the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network
+(CTAN) are all pretty old, and in my opinion not worth messing with. Instead
+I would just recommend that people use the natbib and merlin.mbs packages,
+which can handle any citation style and make it easy to set up one that looks
+like APA. I did try natbib with the utdiss2 template, and it worked just fine.
+
+Merlin is available on CTAN (where it is called custom-bib) at:
+
+  http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/biblio/bibtex/contrib/custom-bib/
+
+And natbib is at:
+
+  http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/natbib/
+
+Merlin.mbs (custom-bib) and natbib are both by the same author and complement
+each other.  Basically, natbib is a general .sty file that can handle any
+citation style, but to do that it relies on a .bst file to actually format
+the bibliography.  Custom-bib can create the .bst file to work with natbib
+or with other packages.
+
+The most important feature of natbib is that it allows author and date
+information to be inserted into the text easily, as is common in the natural
+sciences (hence the name natbib).  Here's the abstract from the natbib docs:
+
+
+      Journals in the natural sciences tend to use the
+      author-year style of literature citations, in contrast
+      to the numerical style supported by LaTeX and BibTeX. 
+      A number of contributed packages exist to accommodate
+      this citation mode, but each one is tailored to a limited
+      number of BibTeX style (.bst) files.  The reason is that
+      each one reads in the author-year information in different
+      formats for the "bibitem commands.  In contrast, the
+      natbib packs author-year bibliography styles, but also
+      those for standard numerical citations.  In fact, it can
+      also produce numerical citations even with an author-year
+      bibliographic style, something that permits easy switching
+      between the two citation modes.  To this end, replacements
+      for the standard LaTeX .bst files are also provided.
+  
+      It is possible to define the citation style (type of
+      brackets and punctuation between citations) and even to
+      associate it with the name of the bibliographic style so
+      that it is automatically activated. Citation styles can be
+      defined for local .bst files by means of a configuration
+      file natbib.cfg.
+  
+      It is compatible with the packages: index, showkeys,
+      chapterbib, hyperref, koma and with the classes amsbook
+      and amsart.  It can also emulate the sorting and
+      compressing functions of the cite package (with which it
+      is otherwise incompatible).
+  
+      The natbib package therefore acts as a single, flexible
+      interface for most of the available bibliographic styles.
+
+
+On the other hand, the custom-bib package lets a user generate particular
+bibliography style files (.bst files) for a particular journal or set of
+conventions.  Natbib can then use this .bst file to handle that formatting.
+From the custom-bib documentation:
+
+
+      A problem facing users of BibTeX is that there is no
+      standard for formatting lists of references.  Publishers
+      and journals insist on completely arbitrary placement of
+      commas, colons, and ordering of entries.  Furthermore,
+      author-year styles of citations are supported by certain
+      special LaTeX packages, but each for only a very limited
+      number of bibliographic styles.  Finally, most such style
+      files are for English only, and any adaptations to other
+      languages must duplicate the entire spectrum of such files.
+    
+      All of these obstacles are in principle easily overcome by
+      simply reprogramming BibTeX by means of an appropriate
+      bibliographic style file (extension .bst).  BibTeX is in
+      fact extremely flexible; unfortunately its programming
+      language is very low-level, permitting only the most basic
+      of hacks for the normal user.
+    
+      The solution to this is a generic or master bibliographic
+      style file (extension .mbs) containing docstrip options
+      for alternative coding.  By selecting the desired options,
+      one can customize a .bst file to one's needs.
+    
+      This file, merlin.mbs, is my latest version of a
+      general-purpose .mbs file to meet as many bibliographic
+      needs as possible.  
+
+
+So people can use either or both natbib and custom-bib.  Natbib affects
+what the LaTeX author can do in the text (e.g. ask for author info to be
+inserted into the text right here), and custom-bib affects how the
+bibliography itself will be formatted.  Both seem to work fine with your
+template; I was able to use both the commands defined by natbib.sty and
+the .bst files generated from custom-bib without any problem.  Just see
+(or recommend that users see) the natbib docs for instructions.

+\chapter{How to Use the utdiss2 Package}
+\index{How to Use the utdiss2 Package%
+@\emph{How to Use the utdiss2 Package}}%
+
+\section{Preamble}
+\index{Preamble@\emph{Preamble}}%
+
+The preamble of the document starts like this:
+\begin{verbatim}
+     \documentclass[12pt]{report}
+     \usepackage{utdiss2}
+\end{verbatim}
+\index{commands!documentclass@\cn{documentclass}}%
+\index{commands!usepackage@\cn{usepackage}}%
+
+The first line declares ``\texttt{report}'' as the document 
+class, 
+\index{document class}%
+with an option of 12pt for the character size, 
+which is slightly greater that usual (the default is 10pt), but is
+what the Office of the Graduate School (OGS) recommends.
+You may include other options, as in any other \LaTeX{} document.
+
+The second line loads the \texttt{utdiss2} package, 
+\index{utdiss2 package@{\texttt{utdiss2} package}}%
+which contains a set of commands intended to produce a document fulfilling
+the official requirements for a doctoral dissertation or master's thesis or
+report. Besides that, you may include other packages. 
+For instance:
+\begin{verbatim}
+     \usepackage{amsmath,amsthm,amsfonts,amscd}
+\end{verbatim}
+for mathematical symbols, or,
+\begin{verbatim}
+     \usepackage{draftcopy}
+\end{verbatim}
+to have a large ``watermark'' across each page of your document that
+says, ``DRAFT.''
+
+
+The next few commands in the preamble are required.
+
+\cn{author\{Craig William McCluskey\}}
+\index{commands!author@\cn{author}}%
+Replace my name in the command by your
+full, official University name.  Make it combination of lower and uppercases.
+
+\cn{address\{9905 Chukar Circle\bslash\bslash\ Austin, Texas 78758\}}
+\index{commands!address@\cn{address}}%
+Replace my address with your *permanent* (not local) address. Use
+\texttt{\bslash\bslash} to separate address lines.
+
+\cn{title\{Writing a Doctoral Dissertation with \cn{LaTeX\{\}} at
+the University of Texas at Austin\} }
+\index{commands!title@\cn{title}}%
+Replace the name of this document
+in this command by your dissertation title. If the title consists of more
+than one line, it should be in inverted pyramid form. You may have to specify
+the line breakings by \texttt{\bslash\bslash} commands.
+
+\cn{supervisor[Isaac Newton]\{Johannes Kepler\} }
+\index{commands!supervisor@\cn{supervisor}}%
+This document has two supervisors listed. See the source file
+(disstemplate.tex) for information on how to have only one supervisor.
+This command can be broken across lines as it is in the source file and
+as the \cn{committeemembers} command is shown below.
+
+\begin{verbatim}
+\committeemembers
+        [Erwin Schr\"odinger]
+        [Albert Einstein]
+        [Charles Townes]
+        {Arthur Schawlow}
+\end{verbatim}
+\index{commands!committeemembers@\cn{committeemembers}}%
+This document shows four non-supervisor committee members. See the source
+file (disstemplate.tex) for information on how to have a different number.
+
+\cn{previousdegrees\{B.S.\} } Replace B.S. with your previous degree.
+
+The next few commands in the preamble are optional.
+\begin{verbatim}
+%\graduationmonth{...}
+%\graduationyear{...}
+%\typist{...}
+\end{verbatim}
+Their use is documented in the source file.
+
+At this point, if you are writing a master thesis or report
+you must use the optional \cn{degree} and \cn{degreeabbr} commands
+and specify
+\index{master}
+\index{master!master thesis}
+\index{commands!masterthesis@\cn{masterthesis}}
+\index{master!master report}
+\index{commands!masterreport@\cn{masterreport}}
+\begin{verbatim}
+%\degree{MASTER OF ARTS}
+%\degreeabbr{M.A.}
+%\masterreport
+%\masterthesis
+\end{verbatim}
+as documented in the source file. By default the document is formated
+as a \emph{dissertation}%
+\footnote{The command \cn{dissertation} is also provided for symmetry.}%
+\index{commands!dissertation@\cn{dissertation}}
+
+
+The default spacing for both text and quoted text is doublespaced.
+That can be changed with the following self-explanatory commands: 
+\begin{verbatim}
+\oneandonehalfspacing 
+\singlespacing
+\oneandonehalfspacequote
+\singlespacequote
+\end{verbatim}
+\index{commands!oneandonehalfspacing@\cn{oneandonehalfspacing}}%
+\index{commands!singlespacing@\cn{singlespacing}}%
+\index{commands!oneandonehalfspacequote@\cn{oneandonehalfspacequote}}%
+\index{commands!singlespacequote@\cn{singlespacequote}}%
+
+Some versions of LaTeX in combination with some types of printers
+produce printed output that has incorrect vertical margins.
+The command \cn{topmargin 0.125} is provided to allow easy adjustment
+if it's needed.
+
+If there are 10 or more sections, 10 or more subsections for a section,
+etc., you need to make an adjustment to the Table of Contents with the
+command \cn{longtocentry}.
+\index{commands!longtocentry@\cn{longtocentry}}%
+This command allocates the proper horizontal space for double-digit
+numbers.
+
+
+\section{Document}
+\index{Document@\emph{Document}}%
+
+Next comes the actual text. It could be a sequence of chapters divided
+into sections, subsections, etc., all in the main file:
+\begin{verbatim}
+\chapter{...}     % The first chapter. The
+                  % \chapter command is of the form
+                  % \chapter[..]{..} or \chapter{..} where
+    ... text ...  % [...] is the entry in table of contents
+                  % and {...} is the chapter heading printed
+                  % in the body of the document.
+\section{...}     %
+                  % IMPORTANT: If your chapter heading consists
+                  % of more than one line, it will be auto-
+    ... text ...  % matically broken into separate lines.
+                  % If you don't like the way LaTeX breaks the
+                  % chapter heading into lines, however, use
+\section{...}     % `\newheadline' command to break lines.
+                  % NEVER USE \\ IN SECTIONAL (E.G., CHAPTER,
+    ... text ...  % SECTION, SUBSECTION, SUBSUBSECTION) HEADINGS!
+                  %
+\chapter{...}     % This is Chapter 2.
+    ... text ...
+\section{...}
+    ... text...
+\subsection{...}
+    ... more text ...
+\subsubsection{...}
+    ... more text ...
+\appendix         % The appendix begins here.
+% \appendices     % If more than one appendix chapters,
+                  % use \appendices instead of \appendix
+\chapter{...}     % First appendix chapter, i.e., Appendix A.
+\section{...}     % This is appendix section A.1.
+    .................
+\end{verbatim}
+\index{commands!chapter@\cn{chapter}}%
+\index{commands!section@\cn{section}}%
+\index{commands!subsection@\cn{subsection}}%
+\index{commands!appendix@\cn{appendix}}%
+\index{commands!appendices@\cn{appendices}}%
+
+Or, the chapters can be written in different files like this document
+and be loaded by \cn{include} commands:
+\begin{verbatim}
+\include{chapter-introduction}
+\include{chapter-instructions}
+\include{chapter-howtouse}
+\include{chapter-makingbib}
+\include{chapter-tables+figs}
+\include{chapter-math}
+\appendices
+\index{Appendices@\emph{Appendices}}%
+\include{chapter-appendix1}
+\include{chapter-appendix2}
+\include{chapter-appendix3}
+\end{verbatim}
+\index{commands!include@\cn{include}}%
+Having the chapters in separate files makes the main .tex file simpler
+and allows chapters to be easily re-ordered (just swap the order of the
+include commands) or left (commented) out for draft copies.
+
+Note: If you have only one appendix, in addition to using
+\cn{appendix} instead of \cn{appendices}, you must leave out the
+\cn{chapter} definition at the start of the appendix's text. Putting
+it in will cause the insertion of an extra page with only the word
+Appendix on it and will cause the appendix to be labeled Appendix 1,
+both of which are poor form if there is only one appendix.
+
+If you are writing a short dissertation 
+\index{short dissertation}%
+that does not require 
+chapters, you need to use the command \cn{nochapters} 
+\index{commands!nochapters@\cn{nochapters}}%
+just before the first section:
+
+\begin{verbatim}
+\nochapters 
+
+\section{...}     % First section.
+    ... text ... 
+\section{...}     % Second section.
+    ... text ... 
+        (...)
+\end{verbatim}
+
+Next comes the bibliography.
+\index{bibliography}%
+It can be made by hand like this:
+\begin{verbatim}
+\begin{thebibliography}{foo}
+\bibitem ...   
+\end{thebibliography}
+\end{verbatim}
+\index{commands!environments!thebibliography}%
+Or it can also be generated with BiB\TeX{}, 
+\index{BiBTeX@BiB\TeX{}}%
+as explained in chapter \ref{c:bib}.
+
+Finally the vita is produced like this:
+\begin{verbatim}
+\begin{vita}
+     % Insert your brief biographical sketch here. 
+     % Your permanent address and the name of the 
+     % typist(s) are generated automatically.
+\end{vita}
+
+\end{verbatim}

+\section{Other Requirements}
+\index{Other Requirements@\emph{Other Requirements}}%
+
+
+\subsection{Margins}
+\index{Margins@\emph{Margins}}%
+
+The dissertation, after printing, should have left and top margins of
+1~1/2 inches, and the right and bottom margins should be 1~1/4 inches.
+These margins should be consistent throughout the dissertation - including
+all pages in the appendix. \textbf{All page numbers must be \textit{at
+least} one inch from the edges of the page}. Headers are rarely used in
+dissertations; if you are considering using them, check with the Doctoral
+Degree Evaluator first to be sure they will be accepted.
+
+
+\subsection{Spacing and Page Arrangement}
+\index{Spacing and Page Arrangement@\emph{Spacing and Page Arrangement}}
+\index{Spacing}%
+\index{Page Arrangement}%
+
+The document should be double-spaced or space-and-a-half. 
+Exceptions to double-spacing are: the Table of Contents, Lists of Tables, 
+Tables, Figures, Graphs, Captions, Footnotes, Endnotes, 
+Appendices, Glossary, Bibliography and Index; these may 
+be single-spaced. Paragraph indentations are usually five to ten 
+spaces. Prose quotations over four lines should be in 
+block quote (double or single spaced, indented on the left). 
+Do not use quotation marks if the quotation is indented except for
+quotations within the block quote. Please refer to a style manual for
+more detailed instructions.
+
+Be sure that each new chapter or major section (i.e., Appendix, Bibliography,
+Vita) begins on a new page.
+
+\section{Master's Theses and Reports}
+
+Always remember that this ``fake'' thesis or report 
+\index{fake thesis or report}%
+--- assuming you have followed the instructions in the next chapter about
+how to format it as such --- is only intended to be a template for writing
+your own. Since the ultimate responsibility of making sure your thesis or
+report meets the Graduate School's requirements, however, lies only with
+you, you \textbf{\textit{must}} get the current \emph{Format For The
+Master's Thesis and Report} from the Office of Graduate Studies or their web
+page and check everything yourself. If you don't, you may have a very
+rude awakening from the Mike Feissli, Master's Degree Evaluator at a most
+inopportune time.
+
+That said, the formatting requirements for Dissertations and Reports and
+Theses are very similar. They are, however, \textbf{\textit{not}} identical.
+The primary differences are in the ordering of the title and signature
+pages and where the optional index is inserted. For Master's Theses
+and Reports, the Title Page must be in front of the Signature Page. For
+Master's Theses and Reports, \textbf{\textit{nothing}} is permitted to
+come between the bibliography and the vita; the index, if used, must be
+before the bibliography. If you want to use an index, talk with Mike
+Feissli before your deadline to verify that its inclusion is
+acceptable. The index can be removed by commenting out one line with a
+percent sign, if necessary, for producing the ``official'' copy of your
+thesis or report, and then inserted for copies for your advisor and
+you by removing the percent sign.

+\section{History of This Package}
+\index{History of This Package@\emph{History of This Package}}%
+
+In 1991 the \texttt{utdiss} package was written by Young U. Ryu 
+\index{Young U. Ryu}%
+in order to be used in the preamble of \LaTeX{} doctoral dissertation
+files at the University of Texas at Austin. 
+\index{University of Texas at Austin}%
+Since then some changes have occured, the most important one
+being the introduction of a new version of \LaTeX{} 
+\index{LaTeX@{\LaTeX{}}}%
+called \LaTeXe{}. 
+\index{LaTeX2e@{\LaTeXe{}}}%
+
+In order to partially adapt the utdiss package to this new version
+of \LaTeX{}, Miguel Lerma introduced a few modifications in it,
+and his document, \textit{How to Write a Doctoral Dissertation
+with \LaTeX{}}, served as a test for it. His new package was
+called \texttt{utdiss1}.
+\index{utdiss1@\texttt{utdiss1}}%
+
+With the significant changes in style introduced by the Graduate
+School in the Spring of 2001, as well as  my need to write a
+dissertation myself, I extended Miguel Lerma's package to meet
+these new requirements. As in Miguel Lerma's case, this document
+serves as a test for it, but it is, in addition, intended as a
+template for others to use in writing their own dissertations.
+The new package is called \texttt{utdiss2}.
+\index{utdiss2@\texttt{utdiss2}}%
+
+\section{Revised Philosophy for This Package}
+\index{Revised Philosophy for This Package@\emph{Revised Philosophy
+	for This Package}}%
+
+Since the source file of this document is intended to be used by students
+writing their own dissertations, this document does not display all of the
+comments regarding usage of previous versions. It has, instead, transferred
+these comments to their respective places in the source file so someone
+editing their own copy of the source file to produce their own dissertation
+will see the comments where they are needed. It may be helpful to print out
+a copy of the source file along with the PostScript version of the document
+so the two can be studied side-by-side.
+
+\textbf{Note:} In spite of the effort to accommodate the package to
+the requirements of the University, it is not possible to guarantee
+that it will always work, and the author of the dissertation remains
+responsible for checking that such requirements are actually fulfilled
+by his/her final work. 
+
+The standard caveat applies:
+
+\begin{quote}
+\index{guarantee}%
+This template package is provided and licensed ``as is'' without warranty
+of any kind, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to,
+the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular
+purpose. Yadda, yadda, yadda, \ldots

+
+BiB\TeX{} 
+\index{BiBTeX@BiB\TeX{}}%
+allows one to generate automatically the bibliography 
+from a database of bibliographic 
+items. You need to do the following:
+
+\begin{enumerate}
+\item Create the bibliographic database, 
+\index{bibliographic database}%
+which is a file whose name ends in \texttt{.bib}. 
+\index{.bib@\texttt{.bib}}%
+Let us call it \texttt{diss.bib}. Entries in this file are like this:
+\begin{verbatim}
+@BOOK{knuth:tb,
+  author = "Donald K. Knuth",
+  title = "The \TeXbook",
+  publisher = "Addison-Wesley",
+  year = "1984",
+}

+  author = "Alf~J.~van der Poorten",
+  title = "Some problems of recurrent interest",
+  institution = "School of Mathematics and Physics,
+                 Macquarie University",
+  address = "North Ryde, Australia 2113",
+  number = "81-0037",
+  month = "August",
+  year = "1981",
+}
+@ARTICLE{erdos:oap,
+ author = "Paul Erd{\"o}s and Paul Turan",
+ title = "On a problem in the theory of uniform 
+          distribution, {I}", 
+ journal = "Indag. Math.",
+ volume = "10",
+ year = "1948",
+ pages = "370--378",
+}
+\end{verbatim}
+
+\item Include a \cn{bibliographystyle} 
+\index{commands!bibliographystyle@\cn{bibliographystyle}}%
+command in your \LaTeX{} file, say 
+
+\cn{bibliographystyle\{plain\}} 
+and a \cn{bibliography} 
+\index{commands!bibliography@\cn{bibliography}}%
+command to load the bibliography, 
+in this case \cn{bibliography\{diss\}}, at the point of your 
+document where the bibliography should be inserted. 
+
+The document at this point will look like this:
+\begin{verbatim}
+\bibliographystyle{plain}
+\bibliography{diss}
+\end{verbatim}
+
+\item Run \LaTeX{} on your main file, say \texttt{foo.tex}: 
+\texttt{latex foo}. This generates an auxiliary file 
+\texttt{foo.aux} with a list of \cn{cite} 
+\index{commands!cite@\cn{cite}}
+references.
+
+\item Run BiB\TeX{} on your file: \texttt{bibtex foo}. 
+BiB\TeX{} reads the auxiliary file, looks up the 
+bibliographic database (\texttt{diss.bib}), 
+and writes a \texttt{.bbl} 
+\index{.bbl@\texttt{.bbl}}%
+file with the bibliographic information formated according to
+the bibliographic style file (\texttt{.bst}, 
+\index{.bst@\texttt{.bst}}%
+say \texttt{plain.bst}) 
+\index{plain.bst@\texttt{plain.bst}}%
+specified.  Messages about resources used and error messages
+are written to a \texttt{.blg} 
+\index{.blg@\texttt{.blg}}%
+file (in the case of this template, disstemplate.blg).
+
+\item Run \LaTeX{} again: \texttt{latex foo}, which now 
+reads the \texttt{.bbl} 
+\index{.bbl@\texttt{.bbl}}%
+reference file.
+
+\item Run \LaTeX{} for a third time: \texttt{latex foo}, 
+resolving all references.
+
+\end{enumerate}
+
+This includes all bibliographic items that have been cited 
+in the document with a \cn{cite} 
+\index{commands!cite@\cn{cite}}%
+command. In order to include non cited items in the bibliography,

+\index{Generalized Fatou's Lemma%
+@\emph{Generalized Fatou's Lemma}}%
+
+Here we show an application of the following lemma:
+
+\begin{lem}[Generalized Fatou's Lemma] \label{l:fatou}
+
+Let $A$ be a Dedekind ring and $F$ a rational series 
+in $A[[X]]$, i.e., $F = p/q$ for some 
+$p, q \in A[X]$. Then there exist two polynomials 
+$P, Q \in A[X]$ such that $F = P/Q$, 
+where $P$ and $Q$ are relatively prime and 
+$Q(0) = 1$.
+
+\end{lem}
+
+\proof
+See \cite{bertin:psn}, p.~15, theorem~1.3.
+\endproof
+
+\begin{thm} \label{l:req}
+Let $\{c_n\}_{n=-\infty}^{\infty}$ a set of 
+elements from $K$ such that $c_n \in k'$ for every 
+$n \geq n_0$, and verifying the following recurrence 
+relation of order M:
+\begin{equation}
+c_n\ =\ r_1\,c_{n-1} + r_2\,c_{n-2} + \dots + r_M\,c_{n-M}
+\end{equation}
+for every $n \in \mathbb Z$, where $r_1,r_2,\dots,r_M$ are in 
+$K$, $r_M \neq 0$. 
+Then:
+
+\item{(i)} The coefficients $r_1,r_2,\dots,r_M$ are in 
+$k'$, and for every $n \in \mathbb Z$, $c_n \in k'$.
+
+\item{(ii)} If $c_n \in \mathcal O_{k',v}$ 
+for every $n \geq n_0$, then the coefficients 
+$r_1,r_2,\dots,r_M$ are all in 
+$\mathcal O_{k',v}$.
+
+\end{thm}
+
+
+\proof 
+
+\item{(i)} Let $C_n$ and $R$ be the matrices:
+
+\begin{equation}
+C_n\ =
+\ \left(
+\begin{array}{llll}
+              c_n & c_{n+1} & \hdots & c_{n+M-1} \\
+              c_{n+1} & c_{n+2} & \hdots  & c_{n+M} \\
+              \vdots & \vdots & \ddots & \vdots \\
+              c_{n+M-1} & c_{n+M} & \hdots & c_{n+2M-2}
+\end{array}
+\right)
+\end{equation}
+and
+\begin{equation}
+R\ =
+\ \left(
+\begin{array}{lllll}
+              0 & 1 & 0 & \hdots & 0 \\
+              0 & 0 & 1 & \hdots & 0 \\
+             \vdots & \vdots & \vdots & \ddots & \vdots \\
+              0 & 0 & 0 & \hdots & 1 \\
+              r_M & r_{M-1} & r_{M-2} & \hdots & r_1 
+\end{array}
+\right)
+\end{equation} 
+
+We have that $C_{n+1} = R\,C_n$. Since the recurrence 
+relation is of order M, $C_n$ is non singular. 
+On the other hand, $R = C_{n+1}\,C_{n}^{-1}$. Since the 
+elements of $C_n$ are in $k'$ for $n \geq n_0$, the entries 
+of $R$, and those of $R^{-1}$, will be in $k'$. Since 
+$C_{n-1} = R^{-1}\,C_n$, we get that the entries of 
+$C_n$ will be in $k'$ also for $n < n_0$. 
+
+\item{(ii)} For each $t \geq n_0$ define the formal 
+power series 
+
+\begin{equation}
+F_t(X)\ =\ \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} c_{t+n}\,X^n
+\end{equation}
+which is in $\mathcal O_{k',v}[[X]]$. 
+We have $F_t(X) = p_t(X)/q(X)$, 
+where $p_t(X),q(X) \in k'[X]$ are the following:
+\begin{equation}
+p_t(X)\ =\ \sum_{j=0}^{M-1} \Bigl( c_{t+j} - 
+                    \sum_{i=1}^{j} r_i\,c_{t+j-i} \Bigr)\,X^j
+\end{equation}
+\begin{equation}
+q(X)\ =\ 1 - r_1\,X - r_2\,X^2 - \dots - r_M\,X^M
+\end{equation}
+This can be checked by multiplying $F_t(X)$ by $q_t(X)$ 
+and using the recurrence relation, which gives 
+$F_t(X)\,q(X) = p_t(X)$ (see \cite{poorten:sp}). 
+
+Now we will prove that $p_t(X)$ and $q(X)$ are relatively 
+prime. To do so, we will see that they cannot have any 
+common root (in $\overline {k'}$). In fact, assume 
+that $\alpha$ is a common root of $p_{t_0}(X)$ and $q(X)$ 
+for some $t_0 \geq n_0$, i.e.: 
+$p_{t_0}(\alpha) = q(\alpha) = 0$. 
+Since $q(0)=1$, then $\alpha \neq 0$. Now we have:
+\begin{equation}
+X\,F_{t_0+1}(X) = F_{t_0}(X) - c_{t_0}
+\end{equation}
+so:
+\begin{multline}
+X\,p_{t_0+1}(X) = X\,q(X)\,F_{t_0+1}(X) \\
+= q(X)\,(F_{t_0}(X) - c_{t_0}) = p_{t_0}(X) - c_{t_0}\,q(X)
+\end{multline}
+Hence $p_{t_0+1}(\alpha) = 0$, which means that $\alpha$ is 
+also a root of $p_{t_0+1}(X)$. By induction we get that 
+$p_t(\alpha) = 0$ for every $t \geq t_0$. Grouping the 
+terms of $p_t(X)$ with respect to $c_t,c_{t+1},\dots,c_{t+M-1}$, 
+we get:
+\begin{equation}
+p_t(X) = \sum_{j=0}^{M-1} a_j(X)\,c_{t+j}
+\end{equation}
+where 
+\begin{equation}
+a_j(X) = X^j\,\Bigl( 1 - \sum_{i=1}^{M-j-1} r_i\,X^i \Bigr)
+\end{equation}
+Note that $a_0(X),a_1(X),\dots,a_{M-1}(X)$ do not depend on t. 
+On the other hand $p_t(\alpha)=0$ implies
+\begin{equation}
+\label{e:coldep}
+\sum_{j=0}^{M-1} a_j(\alpha)\,c_{t+j} = 0
+\end{equation}
+for every $t \geq t_0$. Note that $a_{M-1}(\alpha)=\alpha^{M-1}
+\neq 0$, so $a_0(\alpha),a_1(\alpha),\dots,a_{M-1}(\alpha)$ 
+are not all zero, and (\ref{e:coldep}) means that the columns 
+of the matrix $C_{t_0}$ are linearly dependent, so 
+$\det C_{t_0}=0$, which contradicts the fact that $C_{t_0}$ 
+is non singular. Hence, the hypothesis that $p_t(X)$ and 
+$q(X)$ have a common root has to be false. This proves that 
+$p_t(X)$ and $q(X)$ are relatively prime. 
+
+By (generalized Fatou's) lemma~\ref{l:fatou}, 
+and taking into account that 
+$\mathcal O_{k',v}$ is a Dedekind ring, 
+we get that there exist two relatively prime 
+polynomials $P_t(X)$ and $Q_t(X)$ in 
+$\mathcal O_{k',v}[X]$ such that 
+$F_t(X) = P_t(X)/Q_t(X)$ and $Q_t(0)=1$. Hence: 
+$p_t(X)\,Q_t(X) = q(X)\,P_t(X)$. By unique factorization 
+of polynomials in $k'[X]$, there is a $u \in k'$ such that 
+$P_t(X) = u\,p_t(X)$ and $Q_t(X) = u\,q_t(X)$. Since 
+$Q_t(0)=q(0)=1$, we get that $u=1$, so 
+$P_t(X) = p_t(X)$ and $Q_t(X) = q(X)$. 
+Hence, the coefficients of $q(X)$ are in 
+$\mathcal O_{k',v}$.

+\subsection{Using AMS Fonts}
+\index{Using AMS Fonts@{Using AMS Fonts}}
+
+To use AMS fonts it is necessary to choose from an assortment 
+of \LaTeX{} packages. For instance the command 
+\cn{usepackage\{amsfonts\}} calls in the \emph{amsfonts} package, 
+which provides blackboard bold letters (e.g. $\mathbb{R}$) and 
+some math symbols. A superset of that package is 
+\emph{amssymb}. Other packages are \emph{eufrak} 
+for Frankfurt letters (e.g. $\mathfrak{R}$)
+and \emph{eucal} for Euler script 
+(e.g. $\mathcal{R}$). 
+Consult the \LaTeX{} documentation about this subject

+
+The argument \texttt{h} indicates the position for the 
+table, in this case ``here if possible''. Other values
+of this argument are:
+\texttt{t} (top of the page),
+\texttt{b} (bottom of the page),
+\texttt{p} (on the page of floats) and 
+\texttt{H} (HERE! - requires using the package float.sty.
+Note: When this option is used, LaTeX ignores all of its formatting
+rules and does what you say, putting the entire float exactly where
+it is defined. Check your output to make sure it is what you want!
+If you are having trouble with LaTeX wanting to put a figure that's
+larger than roughly half-a-page, as well as all of the figures
+following it, at the end of a chapter, try using the command
+\cn{clearpage} immediately following the large figure --- and maybe
+a \cn{newpage} later.)
+It is possible to combine several arguments, such as
+\texttt{ht} (``here if possible, otherwise on top of
+the page''). The default is \texttt{tbp}.

+% Commands for master's theses and reports.			     %
+%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
+%
+% If the degree you're seeking is NOT Doctor of Philosophy, uncomment

+%
+%\degree{MASTER OF ARTS}
+%\degreeabbr{M.A.}
+
+% Uncomment the line below that corresponds to the type of master's
+% document you are writing.
+%
+%\masterreport

+
+\topmargin 0.125in	% Adjust this value if the PostScript file output
+			% of your dissertation has incorrect top and 
+			% bottom margins. Print a copy of at least one
+			% full page of your dissertation (not the first
+			% page of a chapter) and measure the top and
+			% bottom margins with a ruler. You must have
+			% a top margin of 1.5" and a bottom margin of
+			% at least 1.25". The page numbers must be at
+			% least 1.00" from the bottom of the page.
+			% If the margins are not correct, adjust this

+			%
+			% The default value is 0.125"
+
+		% If you want to adjust other margins, they are in the
+		% utdiss2-nn.sty file near the top. If you are using
+		% the shell script Makediss on a Unix/Linux system, make
+		% your changes in the utdiss2-nn.sty file instead of

+This document has the form of a ``fake'' doctoral dissertation
+in order to provide an example of such, but it is actually a
+copy of Miguel Lerma's documentation for the Mathematics
+Department Computer Seminar of 25 March 1998 updated in July 2001
+and following by Craig McCluskey to meet the March 2001
+requirements of the Graduate School.
+
+This document and its source file show to write a Doctoral Dissertation using 
+\LaTeX{} and the utdiss2 package.

+% Including external files for each chapter makes this document simpler,
+% makes each chapter simpler, and allows for generating test documents
+% with as few as zero chapters (by commenting out the include statements).
+% This allows quicker processing by the Makediss command file in case you
+% are not working on a specific, long and slow to compile chapter. You
+% can even change the chapter order by merely interchanging the order
+% of the include statements (something I found helpful in my own
+% dissertation).
