A University of California at Davis Thesis/Dissertation LaTeX Class Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Ryan Scott 2013/08/18 v1.2 UCDavis thesis class Please read the manual ucdavisthesis.pdf for more information and change log. The ucdavisthesis class is a LaTeX class that allows you to create a dissertation or thesis which conforms to UC Davis formatting requirements as of August 2013. The output document has the necessary preliminary pages, margins, page number placement, etc. This class also provides most of the macros available in the report class on which it is based, allowing for chapters, sections, etc. Please check the Graduate Studies web page (http://gradstudies.ucdavis.edu/students/filing.html) for any changes or updates to their requirements. Several useful features include: - Two different draft modes (draftcls or draft) with * configurable running headers * black margin box to locate margin violations - Generation of additional abstract in the format for the UMI microfilming abstract - -example dissertation illustrating * some basic LaTeX usage * different LaTeX styles/techniques for -pictures/figures/tables -general formatting *BibTeX usage example Installing the ucdavisthesis class from a .dtx file Many LaTeX packages are supplied as a .dtx file, possibly with a .ins file. This is a literate programming format. To get the materials that LaTeX needs, such as the .cls file, you should run LaTeX on these. First, run LaTeX on ucdavisthesis.ins. If you are using a terminal, you can type at the command prompt: latex ucdavisthesis.ins (or pdflatex ucdavisthesis.ins). If you are using a front-end like WinEdt, load/open ucdavisthesis.ins and click on whatever button you use to LaTeX your documents (don't use TeXify). This will create the files containing the package code; ucdavisthesis.cls, ucdthesis10.clo, ucdthesis11.clo, ucdthesis12.clo, ucdthesis13.clo. If the .ins file doesn't succeed in moving the files to the correct location, they will need to be put in an appropriate directory such as \Local TeX Files\tex\latex\ucdavisthesis or whatever you use for a local tex directory. Finally, if you did not download the documentation (ucdavisthesis.pdf), you can produce the package documentation by running LaTeX on the ucdavisthesis.dtx file. As above, at a terminal you would enter latex ucdavisthesis.dtx (or pdflatex ucdavisthesis.dtx), while from a front-end you would load/open ucdavisthesis.dtx and click on the appropriate button. This will create ucdavisthesis.dvi (or ucdavisthesis.pdf). Note, it is tricky to create correctly formatted cross references (index) in the documentation, so I recommend that you just use the precompiled version. Please see http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=install-unpack for more installation help.
