  • 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 If seems nddiss2e is already installed on your machine, it is probably an outdated version from 2005.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.
