LaTeX Template for Thesis

Here is a LaTeX template for thesis writing.
It is available at

It is intended to be used with pdflatex.
main_file.tex file is the master document and I have included several other tex files using \input command. At the start of the file, \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{report} defines the document type as report, A4 paper, and font size as 12 pt. Using the command, \usepackage[pdftitle={Aye-Confirmation Report},pdfauthor={Yan Naing Aye}]{hyperref}, the title and author properties of output pdf file is set. You can see them when you hover the mouse cursor over the file in the explorer or right click the file and check the properties. hyperref also allows you to have links and bookmarks in your pdf files. The command \def\titleSentence{ } defines the title of the report. You should replace its field with your title. I have defined a new command \los so that list of symbols can be easily added using the command \los. It also allows you to change the format of the list easily by editing at the single place. \renewcommand{\bibname}{References} replaces the title Bibliography with References. And \renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.5} defines the line spacing as 1.5. I hope the template is useful to you. Good luck with your writing thesis!
