I am using tufte-book document class. I would like to add a part at the end of the document which is neither a chapter nor a section. How can I do for making this part visible in the tableofcontents?

# Remarks

You may use the \addcontentsline command. The syntax is defined as follows

\addcontentsline{TABLE}{LEVEL}{TITLE}

• TABLE stands for the type of list, where you want to add the item, possible are:

• toc: Table of contents
• lof: List of figures
• lot: List of tables
• LEVEL will be the level at which the line will appear in the list. Possible are:

• For toc: chapter, section, subsection
• For lof: figure
• For lot: table
• TITLE is your heading.

For example

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Appendix}


will add Appendix to your table of contents, but will NOT typeset the heading within the document. You need to use \chapter*{Appendix} for this.

# Implementation

\documentclass{tufte-book}
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{3}
\setcounter{tocdepth}{3}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter{Introduction}
\section{Historical Overview}
\chapter{Implementation}
\section{The CUDA Model}
\section{A Lattice Boltzmann Solver}
\chapter*{Appendix}

• @Coxa Just replace \chapter*{...}\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{...} by \chapter{...} to restore the default behaviour. – Henri Menke Jan 27 '14 at 18:23
