8% DISCLAIMER
9% To the best of our knowledge, this template satisfies the current uWaterloo thesis requirements.
10% However, it is your responsibility to assure that you have met all requirements of the University and your particular department.
11
12% Many thanks for the feedback from many graduates who assisted the development of this template.
13% Also note that there are explanatory comments and tips throughout this template.
14%======================================================================
15% Some important notes on using this template and making it your own...
16
17% The University of Waterloo has required electronic thesis submission since October 2006.
18% See the uWaterloo thesis regulations at
19% https://uwaterloo.ca/graduate-studies/thesis.
20% This thesis template is geared towards generating a PDF version optimized for viewing on an electronic display, including hyperlinks within the PDF.
21
22% DON'T FORGET TO ADD YOUR OWN NAME AND TITLE in the "hyperref" package configuration below.
23% THIS INFORMATION GETS EMBEDDED IN THE PDF FINAL PDF DOCUMENT.
24% You can view the information if you view properties of the PDF document.
25
26% Many faculties/departments also require one or more printed copies.
27% This template attempts to satisfy both types of output.
28% See additional notes below.
29% It is based on the standard "book" document class which provides all necessary sectioning structures and allows multi-part theses.
30
31% If you are using this template in Overleaf (cloud-based collaboration service), then it is automatically processed and previewed for you as you edit.
32
33% For people who prefer to install their own LaTeX distributions on their own computers, and process the source files manually, the following notes provide the sequence of tasks:
34
35% E.g. to process a thesis called "mythesis.tex" based on this template, run:
36
37% pdflatex mythesis     -- first pass of the pdflatex processor
38% bibtex mythesis       -- generates bibliography from .bib data file(s)
39% makeindex         -- should be run only if an index is used
40% pdflatex mythesis     -- fixes numbering in cross-references, bibliographic references, glossaries, index, etc.
41% pdflatex mythesis     -- it takes a couple of passes to completely process all cross-references
42
43% If you use the recommended LaTeX editor, Texmaker, you would open the mythesis.tex file, then click the PDFLaTeX button. Then run BibTeX (under the Tools menu).
44% Then click the PDFLaTeX button two more times.
45% If you have an index as well,you'll need to run MakeIndex from the Tools menu as well, before running pdflatex
46% the last two times.
47
48% N.B. The "pdftex" program allows graphics in the following formats to be included with the "\includegraphics" command: PNG, PDF, JPEG, TIFF
49% Tip: Generate your figures and photos in the size you want them to appear in your thesis, rather than scaling them with \includegraphics options.
50% Tip: Any drawings you do should be in scalable vector graphic formats: SVG, PNG, WMF, EPS and then converted to PNG or PDF, so they are scalable in the final PDF as well.
51% Tip: Photographs should be cropped and compressed so as not to be too large.
52
53% To create a PDF output that is optimized for double-sided printing:
54% 1) comment-out the \documentclass statement in the preamble below, and un-comment the second \documentclass line.
55% 2) change the value assigned below to the boolean variable "PrintVersion" from " false" to "true".
56
57%======================================================================
58%   D O C U M E N T   P R E A M B L E
59% Specify the document class, default style attributes, and page dimensions, etc.
60% For hyperlinked PDF, suitable for viewing on a computer, use this:
61\documentclass[letterpaper,12pt,titlepage,oneside,final]{book}
62\usepackage{times}
63\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}        % Latin-1 => 256-bit characters, => | not dash, <> not Spanish question marks
64
65% For PDF, suitable for double-sided printing, change the PrintVersion variable below to "true" and use this \documentclass line instead of the one above:
66%\documentclass[letterpaper,12pt,titlepage,openright,twoside,final]{book}
67
68% Some LaTeX commands I define for my own nomenclature.
69% If you have to, it's easier to make changes to nomenclature once here than in a million places throughout your thesis!
70\newcommand{\package}[1]{\textbf{#1}} % package names in bold text
71\newcommand{\cmmd}[1]{\textbackslash\texttt{#1}} % command name in tt font
72\newcommand{\href}[1]{#1} % does nothing, but defines the command so the print-optimized version will ignore \href tags (redefined by hyperref pkg).
73%\newcommand{\texorpdfstring}[2]{#1} % does nothing, but defines the command
74% Anything defined here may be redefined by packages added below...
75
76% This package allows if-then-else control structures.
77\usepackage{ifthen}
78\newboolean{PrintVersion}
79\setboolean{PrintVersion}{false}
80% CHANGE THIS VALUE TO "true" as necessary, to improve printed results for hard copies by overriding some options of the hyperref package, called below.
81
82%\usepackage{nomencl} % For a nomenclature (optional; available from ctan.org)
83\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amstext} % Lots of math symbols and environments
84\usepackage{xcolor}
85\usepackage{epic,eepic}
86\usepackage{graphicx}
87\graphicspath{{pictures/}} % picture directory
88\usepackage{comment} % Removes large sections of the document.
89\usepackage{tabularx}
90\usepackage[labelformat=simple,aboveskip=0pt,farskip=0pt,font=normalsize]{subfig}
91\renewcommand\thesubfigure{(\alph{subfigure})}
92
93\usepackage{algorithm}
94\usepackage{algpseudocode}
95
96\usepackage{pbox}
97
98% Hyperlinks make it very easy to navigate an electronic document.
99% In addition, this is where you should specify the thesis title and author as they appear in the properties of the PDF document.
100% Use the "hyperref" package
101% N.B. HYPERREF MUST BE THE LAST PACKAGE LOADED; ADD ADDITIONAL PKGS ABOVE
102\usepackage[pagebackref=true]{hyperref} % with basic options
103%\usepackage[pdftex,pagebackref=true]{hyperref}
104% N.B. pagebackref=true provides links back from the References to the body text. This can cause trouble for printing.
105\hypersetup{
106    plainpages=false,       % needed if Roman numbers in frontpages
107    unicode=false,          % non-Latin characters in Acrobat's bookmarks

109    pdfmenubar=true,        % show Acrobat's menu?
110    pdffitwindow=false,     % window fit to page when opened
111    pdfstartview={FitH},    % fits the width of the page to the window

130}}{} % end of ifthenelse (no else)
131
132%\usepackage[automake,toc,abbreviations]{glossaries-extra} % Exception to the rule of hyperref being the last add-on package
133% If glossaries-extra is not in your LaTeX distribution, get it from CTAN (http://ctan.org/pkg/glossaries-extra),
134% although it's supposed to be in both the TeX Live and MikTeX distributions. There are also documentation and
135% installation instructions there.
136
137% Customizing tabularx
138\newcolumntype{Y}{>{\centering\arraybackslash}X}
139
140% Setting up the page margins...
141\setlength{\textheight}{9in}
142\setlength{\topmargin}{-0.45in}
143\setlength{\headsep}{0.25in}
144% uWaterloo thesis requirements specify a minimum of 1 inch (72pt) margin at the
145% top, bottom, and outside page edges and a 1.125 in. (81pt) gutter margin (on binding side).
146% While this is not an issue for electronic viewing, a PDF may be printed, and so we have the same page layout for both printed and electronic versions, we leave the gutter margin in.
147% Set margins to minimum permitted by uWaterloo thesis regulations:
148\setlength{\marginparwidth}{0pt} % width of margin notes
149% N.B. If margin notes are used, you must adjust \textwidth, \marginparwidth
150% and \marginparsep so that the space left between the margin notes and page
151% edge is less than 15 mm (0.6 in.)
152\setlength{\marginparsep}{0pt} % width of space between body text and margin notes
153\setlength{\evensidemargin}{0.125in} % Adds 1/8 in. to binding side of all
154% even-numbered pages when the "twoside" printing option is selected
155\setlength{\oddsidemargin}{0.125in} % Adds 1/8 in. to the left of all pages when "oneside" printing is selected, and to the left of all odd-numbered pages when "twoside" printing is selected
156\setlength{\textwidth}{6.375in} % assuming US letter paper (8.5 in. x 11 in.) and side margins as above
157\raggedbottom
158
159% The following statement specifies the amount of space between paragraphs. Other reasonable specifications are \bigskipamount and \smallskipamount.
160\setlength{\parskip}{\medskipamount}
161
162% The following statement controls the line spacing.
163% The default spacing corresponds to good typographic conventions and only slight changes (e.g., perhaps "1.2"), if any, should be made.
164\renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1} % this is the default line space setting
165
166% By default, each chapter will start on a recto (right-hand side) page.
167% We also force each section of the front pages to start on a recto page by inserting \cleardoublepage commands.
168% In many cases, this will require that the verso (left-hand) page be blank, and while it should be counted, a page number should not be printed.
169% The following statements ensure a page number is not printed on an otherwise blank verso page.
170\let\origdoublepage\cleardoublepage
171\newcommand{\clearemptydoublepage}{%
172  \clearpage{\pagestyle{empty}\origdoublepage}}
173\let\cleardoublepage\clearemptydoublepage
174
175% Define Glossary terms (This is properly done here, in the preamble and
176% could also be \input{} from a separate file...)
177%\input{glossaries}
178%\makeglossaries
179
180% cfa macros used in the document
181\input{common}
182%\usepackageinput{common}
183\CFAStyle                                               % CFA code-style
184\lstset{language=CFA}                                   % default language
185\lstset{basicstyle=\linespread{0.9}\sf}                 % CFA typewriter font
186\lstset{inputpath={programs}}
187\newcommand{\PAB}[1]{{\color{red}PAB: #1}}
188
189\newcommand{\uCpp}{$\mu$\CC}

191%======================================================================
192%   L O G I C A L    D O C U M E N T
193% The logical document contains the main content of your thesis.
194% Being a large document, it is a good idea to divide your thesis into several files, each one containing one chapter or other significant chunk of content, so you can easily shuffle things around later if desired.
195%======================================================================

207% We suggest using a separate file for each chapter of your thesis.
208% Start each chapter file with the \chapter command.
209% Only use \documentclass or \begin{document} and \end{document} commands in this master document.
210% Tip: Putting each sentence on a new line is a way to simplify later editing.

227% Bibliography
228
229% The following statement selects the style to use for references.
230% It controls the sort order of the entries in the bibliography and also the formatting for the in-text labels.
231\bibliographystyle{plain}
232% This specifies the location of the file containing the bibliographic information.
233% It assumes you're using BibTeX to manage your references (if not, why not?).
234\cleardoublepage % This is needed if the "book" document class is used, to place the anchor in the correct page, because the bibliography will start on its own page.
235% Use \clearpage instead if the document class uses the "oneside" argument
236\phantomsection  % With hyperref package, enables hyperlinking from the table of contents to bibliography
237% The following statement causes the title "References" to be used for the bibliography section:
238\renewcommand*{\bibname}{References}
239
240% Add the References to the Table of Contents
241\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\textbf{References}}
242
243\bibliography{pl,uw-ethesis}
244% Tip: You can create multiple .bib files to organize your references.
245% Just list them all in the \bibliogaphy command, separated by commas (no spaces).
246
247% The following statement causes the specified references to be added to the bibliography even if they were not cited in the text.
248% The asterisk is a wildcard that causes all entries in the bibliographic database to be included (optional).
249% \nocite{*}
250%----------------------------------------------------------------------
