I'm a PhD student at the Institute for Complex Systems Simulation at the University of Southampton, UK studying complexity in Remote Sensing.

As part of my work I am heavily involved in Remote Sensing and GIS technologies - particularly ENVI/IDL programming and ArcGIS scripting using Python.

My academic website shows some examples of my work, and links to some of the software I have written.

comment Undefined control sequence \begin{abstract} but abstract appears
Should the code above be in the preamble then? I assumed it was meant to replace the equivalent bit in the geogthesis.cls file. I've tried including it in the preamble and using the original geogthesis.cls file that I linked to in my original question, and it all compiles fine. Thank you. What is the best way to get these modifications into the original class file? I'd like to send a fixed version back to my colleague who generally distributes it to PhD students in the department.

comment Undefined control sequence \begin{abstract} but abstract appears
Actually, adding the Table of Contents back into the document (I had deliberately made the smallest, simplest example for this question) gives me various errors like You can't use \spacefactor' in vertical mode. [\tableofcontents]` and Missing $ inserted. [\tableofcontents]. From what I can see elsewhere online, this may be caused by problems with @'s. I don't really understand how this works, but I've tried removing the \makeatletter and \makeatother commands and that hasn't fixed it. I can't find any \makeatletter or \makeatother commands in the cls file. Any ideas?

Changing the abstract bit of the class as you suggested didn't seem to work, but changing \renewenvironment{abstract} to \newenvironment{abstract} made it all work with no errors. Thank you!

comment How to add an extra level of sections with headings below \subsubsection
There seems to be a problem with the first answer below (see comment on that answer) - it doesn't quite work. Does anyone have any ideas? I really need to sort the numbering for my report out soon before it goes to my supervisor!

comment How to add an extra level of sections with headings below \subsubsection
Thanks for this, I've been using it and have only just realised that the section numbering for \subsubsubsection doesn't seem to restart after every \subsubsection. That is, I get 1.1.1, 1.1.1.1, 1.1.1.2, 1.1.2, 1.1.2.3 - where the last one should be 1.1.2.1. Do you have any ideas how to fix this?
