A dissertation is composed of two elements: the content and the form. The author is certainly the person best qualified to speak about the content. We, however, will focus on the form. We are going to see how to get a fine composition with low time expenditure using LaTeX.
Certain universities, faculties or departments ventured to formalize the typesetting requirements of a thesis. Writing a dissertation in LaTeX enables us to adjust the graphical composition to the requirements irrespective of the content. The separation of form and content notably facilitates the task of working on the matter of the thesis. The graphical composition can be defined immediately with a shipped class (there are premade dissertation classes available) or chosen at the end.
