I would like to generate the abbreviations entry in the report written in LyX. I could not find it. I would like to know 3 things :

  1. Insert the abbreviations table in the TOC.
  2. Insert the Abbreviation list at the end of all chapters from the abbreviations defined.
  3. Define the list of abbreviations as well.

Here are suggestions for LaTeX, which can be used with LyX too: List of mathematical notation/abbreviations. – Stefan Kottwitz Sep 18 '11 at 11:46

LyX directly supports the nomencl package.

  • In the main menu, choose the Insert menu and then List/ToC, Nomenclature.

  • You can add nomenclature entries using also the menu, Insert, then Nomenclature Entry.

For further information have a look at the nomencl documentation.

A very good alternative to nomencl is the glossaries package.
