About this Repo

Dissertation

This project outlines Peter's dissertation research and writing.

Writing can be found in /documents, one document per chapter. It's written in Markdown (a text-only format), but is easily converted to laTex or HTML with Pandoc.

To Compile

	make pdf

Read the Makefile to understand how the markdown is converted, to Latex then to PDF.

Compiling Markdown files to laTeX

Pandoc is needed to convert Markdown to Latex -http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/getting-started.html

cd document
pandoc -f markdown -t latex --smart --chapters -o 1_intro.tex 1_intro.md
