How can I customize part style like below picture?

  • This seems to be used in the book by Luis Chaparro - Signals and Systems using MATLAB - Academic Press (2010). – Watson Jan 6 at 10:40

One possibility using TikZ and titlesec:

\usepackage{fourier}% change to lmodern if fourier is no available



\newcommand\partnumfont{% font specification for the number

\newcommand\partnamefont{% font specification for the name "PART"

  {\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
    (current page.north west) rectangle ([yshift=-13cm]current page.north east);   
      text width=2\paperwidth,
      rounded corners=6cm,
      text depth=18cm,
      inner sep=0pt] at (current page.north east) (parttop)
      anchor=south east,
      inner sep=0pt,
      outer sep=0pt] (partnum) at ([xshift=-20pt]parttop.south) 
      inner sep=0pt] (partname) at ([yshift=2pt]partnum.south)   
  {\partnamefont PART};
      anchor=north east,
      inner xsep=0pt] at ([yshift=-0.5cm]partname.east|-partnum.south)

The commands \partnumfont and \partnamefont are used to control the font attributes for the number and the label "Part". Feel free to make adjustments (fonts, sizes) according to your needs.
