%Initial revision
% LaTeX format for theses at MIT
% Based on "Specifications for Thesis Preparation"
% `vi' and `upcase' options by Krishna Sethuraman -
% Margins and heading types by Peter Nuth -
% Title and abstract page by Stephen Gildea -
% Look in this directory for example file mitthesis.doc
% Also for propcover.tex - Boilerplate for PHD proposal.
% To use this style - say something like:
% for dull, boring thesis format:
% \documentclass[12pt]{mitthesis}
% \pagestyle{plain}
% OR for fast drafts:
% \documentclass[11pt,singlespace,draft]{mitthesis}
% \pagestyle{drafthead}
% OR for Tech Reports:
% \documentclass[12pt,twoside]{mitthesis}
% \pagestyle{headings}
% OR
% some other combination...
%%%% New options:
% Option `twoside':
% Good for producing Tech Reports.
% The default is single-sided printing, which is what M.I.T. wants on the
% thesis document itself.
% Option `singlespace':
% Good for drafts.
% Double-spaced theses are the default.
% That is what M.I.T. asks for in the formal specifications.
% Note that MIT does not REQUIRE all theses to be double-spaced anymore.
% Someone in the library system said that it's OK to be single-spaced.
% (Regardless of what the specs. say...)
% To get singlespacing in an area - Use the 'singlespace' environment.
% Option `draft':
% Puts `overfull' boxes at the end of lines that are too long.
% Pagestyle `drafthead':
% Puts the date and the label ``*DRAFT*'' in the footer.
%%%% Parameters to initialize for boilerplate page:
% \title{Mixed Circular Cylindrical Shells}
% \author{J. Casey Salas}
% \prevdegrees{B.S., University of California (1978) \\
% S.M., Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1981)}
% \department{Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science}
% \degree{Doctor of Philosophy}
%% If the thesis is for two degrees simultaneously, list them both
%% separated by \and like this:
% \degree{Doctor of Philosophy \and Master of Science}
% \degreemonth{February}
% \degreeyear{1987}
% \thesisdate{December 10, 1986}
%% If the thesis is copyright by the Institute, leave this line out and
%% the standard copyright line will be used instead.
% \copyrightnotice{J. Casey Salas, 1986}
%% If there is more than one supervisor, use the \supervisor command
%% once for each.
% \supervisor{John D. Galli}{Director, Sound Instrument Laboratory}
%% This is the department committee chairman, not the thesis committee chairman
% \chairman{Arthur C. Smith}
% {Chairman, Departmental Committee on Graduate Students}
%% Make the titlepage based on the above information. If you need
%% something special and can't use the standard form, you can specify
%% the exact text of the titlepage yourself. Put it in a titlepage
%% environment and leave blank lines where you want vertical space.
%% The spaces will be adjusted to fill the entire page. The dotted
%% lines for the signatures are made with the \signature command.
%% The abstractpage environment sets up everything on the page except
%% the text itself. The title and other header material are put at the
%% top of the page, and the supervisors are listed at the bottom. A
%% new page is begun both before and after. Of course, an abstract may
%% be more than one page itself. If you need more control over the
%% format of the page, you can use the abstract environment, which puts
%% the word "Abstract" at the beginning and single spaces its text.
% \begin{abstractpage}
% Abstract goes here.
% \end{abstractpage}
%%%%%%%% Newer additions
% documentclass options -
% vi For MIT course VI or VIII thesis - will copyright the thesis to
% you while giving MIT permission to copy and distribute it.
% upcase Will put much of the cover page in uppercase, as per the
% example on page 17 of the *Specifications for Thesis
% Preparation*, (revised 1989)
% Also added ``All Rights Reserved'' to default copyright notice.

\addtolength{\topmargin}{-\headheight} % No header, so compensate
\addtolength{\topmargin}{-\headsep} % for header height and separation

% permission notice.
% If you use the 'vi' option, \copyrightnoticetext is used to set the
% copyright to ``(C) Your Name, Current Year in Roman Numerals.''

% If there is no \copyrightnotice command, it is asssumed that MIT
