  • Don Brower, dbrower@nd.edu


Easi­est way to be­gin is to start with ei­ther the file example/example.tex or the tem­plate template.tex. The man­ual has a lot more in­for­ma­tion.

The ex­am­ple di­rec­tory con­tains a sam­ple the­sis demon­strat­ing the us­age of this pack­age.

(The files are the same as in the sample_ndthesis.tar.gz dis­tri­bu­tion by Jeff Squy­eres) (and D. A. Peter­son, but mod­i­fied for the nd­dis­s2e class.)


The eas­i­est way to in­stall this pack­age is to copy the nddiss2e.cls and nddiss2e.bst files into the same di­rec­tory as your source file.

Be­ware! If seems nddiss2e is al­ready in­stalled on your ma­chine, it is prob­a­bly an out­dated ver­sion from 2005. Please use the cur­rent ver­sion.

This Re­pos­i­tory

The Makefile con­tains all the logic to pro­cess the mas­ter source file, nddiss2e.dtx. The nddiss2e.cls, nddiss2e.pdf, and template.tex files are gen­er­ated from the dtx file. Run make to re­gen­er­ate ev­ery­thing. Th­ese deriva­tives are checked into the repo to make it eas­ier for peo­ple to ac­cess and down­load them.


The orig­i­nal ver­sion, cre­ated by Sameer Vi­jay, fol­lows the Spring 2004 for­mat­ting guide­lines. Later, Me­gan Pat­nott up­dated it to fol­low the Spring 2013 guide­lines.

This is based off of the style file cre­ated by D. A. Peter­son, Jeff Squy­eres, and oth­ers.


This file may be dis­tributed and/or mod­i­fied un­der the con­di­tions of the Project Public Li­cense, ei­ther ver­sion 1.2 of this li­cense or (at your op­tion) any later ver­sion. The lat­est ver­sion of this li­cense can be found at http://www.la­tex-project.org/lppl.txt.
