In the life of every person engaged in science, there comes a time when he or she, due to certain circumstances, is faced with the need to write a dissertation. Among motive reasons, mercantile interests often come first. Since the priority of the latter is usually lower than the priority of scientific interests, the writing of the thesis is postponed for a more convenient time, which is still not happening. As a result, a dissertation is sometimes not written even by retirement age, or it is written and presented for the defense at an age at which others have a sense of ironic compassion for an applicant, mainly if the “actual” dissertation includes works from 30 years ago.

The choice of the LATEX package, on the one hand, is predetermined by its rather wide distribution, on the other hand, by the presence of a still significant number of low-power computers. Besides, some features of latex make it easier to work with the list of references, cross-quoting, numbering formulas, etc.

LATEX language

Any print work created with LATEXa is called a document. The document file begins with a description of the form of the document. This is an indication of the style header file and the size file, specifying page sizes and field sizes. The typical user should not change anything in the first lines of the file.

The dissertation text begins after the line \ begin {document} and ends with the command \ end {document}. The user should only change this part of the document using a text editor, for example, Multi-Editor.

Most LATEX commands begin with the “\” character. They determine the generation of headings, the beginning/end of tables and figures, the beginning/end of equations, text positioning commands, and commands for using certain characters like mathematical symbols, letters of the Greek alphabet, etc.

A mathematical expression starting and ending with the $ $ command will be represented as a separate line in the text of the work.

The % command indicates that you must omit the rest of the line in which it is located. It is convenient to use to create comments in the dissertation file.
