Building on this example where Chapter is added to each chapter heading, how can I modify the code to do just that except for the introduction and final / concluding chapter (but still retain numbering for TOC purposes)?

\documentclass{tufte-book}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\makeatletter
\titleformat{\chapter}%
  [display]% shape
  {\relax\ifthenelse{\NOT\boolean{@tufte@symmetric}}{\begin{fullwidth}}{}}% format applied to label+text
  {\itshape\huge\chaptertitlename~\thechapter}% label
  {0pt}% horizontal separation between label and title body
  {\huge\rmfamily\itshape}% before the title body
  [\ifthenelse{\NOT\boolean{@tufte@symmetric}}{\end{fullwidth}}{}]% after the title body
\makeatother
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{1}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Introduction}
\lipsum[1]
\chapter{A substantive chapter}
\lipsum[2]
\end{document}

Edit: I am interested in a flexible solution that - allows me to keep the introduction and conclusion as numbered the same way as the other chapters - allows me to have the intro and conclusion not numbered, but still to appear in the TOC.

    Are you sure you want to number the introduction and conclusion? They can appear in the table of contents without being numbered. – Bernard Aug 8 at 21:50
  • My sense is that it would be odd with numbered section headings for the intro prefixed with 0, but I am fine with them being off-number so I have substantive chapters with the Chapter x heading, and then none of that for the intro and conclusion. – ako Aug 8 at 21:59

As long as the changes are made inside a group, they only affect the chapter you want and you are flexible to change the other chapters however you want.

\documentclass{tufte-book}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\makeatletter
\newcommand{\mychap}{%
\titleformat{\chapter}%
  [display]% shape
  {\relax\ifthenelse{\NOT\boolean{@tufte@symmetric}}{\begin{fullwidth}}{}}% format applied to label+text
  {\itshape\huge\chaptertitlename~\thechapter}% label
  {0pt}% horizontal separation between label and title body
  {\huge\rmfamily\itshape}% before the title body
  [\ifthenelse{\NOT\boolean{@tufte@symmetric}}{\end{fullwidth}}{}]% after the title body
}
\makeatother
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{1}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Introduction}
\lipsum[1]

\begingroup
\mychap%
\chapter{A substantive chapter}
\lipsum[2]
\chapter{Another chapter}
\lipsum[1]
\endgroup

\chapter{Conclusions}
\lipsum[1]

\end{document}
  • this works but the \begingroup switch seems to interfere with the section heading. The running section header for the introduction section to which I apply the begin group, the running head becomes CONTENTS from presumably the previous section. The other chapters don't have this issue. – ako Aug 15 at 13:49
  • @ako I can't reproduce this. Gotta some code? – user194021 Sep 17 at 16:54
