Producing documents with mathematical content, such as theses, terms papers, or journal articles, can be a daunting task due to the large number of special characters required. LaTex provides an excellent way of doing this, and is the method of typesetting preferred by mathematicians worldwide. This program is freely available and can be downloaded for any platform. LaTex is also the preferred way to produce CSUN Master's Theses. To do so, students should use the CSUN.cls file for their thesis, which automatically produces a document which adheres to campus guidelines. To use it save the linked (at left) file to the directory where your thesis source file is kept. The CSUN Thesis files were produced by Professor Jeff Wiegley of the Computer Science Department at CSUN.
