I am writing a paper for a journal. When I run the latex program ,I get the Bad box error. I have read numerous queries about this error since the last 2 days but have not understood how to rectify it. Please help me in doing something that removes these errors. I am new to latex. Please help

 line 112: I can't write on file `template.pdf'. \subsection: File `example.eps' already exists on the system.

line 96: Overfull \hbox (3.50853pt too wide) in paragraph

line 96: Overfull \hbox (2.14626pt too wide) in paragraph

line 107: Overfull \hbox (1.81401pt too wide) in paragraph

 line 107: Overfull \hbox (6.34181pt too wide) in paragraph

 Underfull \vbox (badness 4096) has occurred while \output is active []

Please find the program below. It is basically a template of journal where I have filled my information.I have tried to make the below program as short as possible by deleting the not so useful information.

 Model order reduction is a concept borrowed from mathematics where it was 
 being used to reduce the order of a system of ordinary differential 
equations. In systems and control engineering, it is found that most of the   
real time systems are complex and difficult to analyse and understand. The 
need to find an equivalent lower order system which preserves  \\
In the recent years, the research in model order reduction has led to the 
development of large number of methods with an aim to find a technique which 
works for all types of LTI systems. \\
This paper proposes a new  method based on xyz algorithm and avb technique.

    you need to show some code Overfull \hbox (3.50853pt too wide) just means that something is 3.5pt wider than the space it is in. Perhaps it is a word that can not hyphenate or perhaps you have \includegraphics[width=100pt]{} in a line that is only 96.5 pt wide, it is impossible to tell from the information given.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us (and also you) and add a minimal working example (MWE), that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document}.

    @Shivam The only error I get when running your document is a superfluous } after the title. The corresponding error message is Too many }'s. } but this is not what you show us in your question. Jul 10, 2017 at 12:29
