How to compile?
This thesis template uses citations and indexing. On a unix or MacOS platform, run these commands in a terminal:
pdflatex thesis.tex pdflatex thesis.tex makeindex thesis.idx bibtex thesis.aux pdflatex thesis.tex bibtex thesis.aux pdflatex thesis.tex
You may need to run these commands repeatedly if you still see cross-referencing errors (such as ? instead of citations, ?? instead of chapter numbers).
