# Thesis Template

I'm currently trying to setup a template like from Siarhei Khirevich's site. The person responsible for setting up the site has done a great job of giving advice on how to set up your template, but basically I am very new to latex. And I am struggling with it. Could anyone here advise me on how to set up my template to resemble something like this photo?

Any input appreciated

MWE from comment:

{\textendash={400,400}, % en-dash, add more space around it
"28={ ,150}, % left bracket, add space from right
"29={150, }, % right bracket, add space from left
\textquotedblleft={ ,150}, % left quotation mark, space from right
\textquotedblright={150, }} % right quotation mark, space from left

\SetExtraKerning[unit=space]
{encoding={*}, family={qhv}, series={b}, size={large,Large}}
{1={-200,-200},
\textendash={400,400}}

• But please use the BCOR (binding correction) option of typearea instead of the code used to shift the text around. – Juri Robl Feb 2 '15 at 16:44
• Hi Kurt, thanks for the welcome. Sorry about not putting my current example up initially, here it is, \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage[hmargin=2.5cm,vmargin=3cm]{geometry} \usepackage{fancyhdr} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{float} \usepackage{url} \begin{document} \lhead{......} \rhead{.....} \chead{FYP REPORT} \begin{titlepage} \begin{center} \vspace{5in} \begin{figure}[H] \begin{center} \includegraphics[width=400pt]{.....} \end{center} \end{figure} \begin{LARGE} Final Year Project \\ – Dec Feb 2 '15 at 21:22
• As you can see, im very new to this, I completed some good reports using latex during the year but this is alot bigger but I'd like to give it a go. I've tried adding in bits from the website above but I keep getting errors – Dec Feb 2 '15 at 21:25
• Ok thanks for the patience Kurt, after a few hours of chopping and changing I have come up with the above. – Dec Feb 3 '15 at 1:04
• Please note that the site has a one question per question, zero new question per comment policy. Right now, your code cannot be compiled as it lacks a class. Please test your code before posting it. Also, nobody can compile it since it requires a bunch of files on your computer. – cfr Feb 3 '15 at 1:20

Rule of thumb, load as many packages as needed, but as few as possible.

The following uses standard KOMA-book including a font package for another font, mathtools for some amsmath fixes and biblatex for citing. This should be all you need right now.

• chemformula for chemistry
• siunitx for typesetting units
• babel for right localization and hyphenation
• booktabs to generate nice tables after having read the doc ... some more, depending on what you want to do

We need a page, chapter and section headings and a header. A bit of math and some fonts. All this can be found in any introduction to LaTeX.

\documentclass[fleqn,chapterprefix=true,headsepline]{scrbook}
\clearpairofpagestyles
\usepackage{libertine}%text font
\usepackage[libertine]{newtxmath}%a bit matching math
\usepackage{mathtools}%nice math
\usepackage[style=authoryear]{biblatex}%citing
\usepackage{blindtext}%dummy text
$$\gamma = \frac{1}{\tau} = \frac{D_\text{eff}}{D_\text{m}}$$

Many more information can be found in the documentation to the base class scrguien and the corresponding packages.
