## Dissertation

• FIRST OF ALL, you should check USC The Graduate School Thesis/Dissertation Submission Website and follow the instructions there.
• If you use LaTex, you can use the package LaTeX tools by brian gerkey or USC Robotics webpage.
• Modified version meeting USC graduate school as of Sep 2008 can be found here.
• The only unsolved problem in 'modUSCthesis.sty' is to convert italic font in table of contents (TOC) into normal font. To do so, after compiling your main tex files (assume the name of main tex file is 'CompressionThesis.tex'), open 'CompressionThesis.toc'. Then, add LaTex command, '\normalfont', in front of the name of TOC items.

For example, if you want to change 'List of Tables' in italic to normal font, change '\contentsline {chapter}{List of Tables}' into '\contentsline {chapter}{\normalfont List of Tables}' in 'CompressionThesis.toc' file.

After modifying 'CompressionThesis.toc' file, you should compile again with the option which does not compile 'CompressionThesis.toc' again.
For example, in WinEDT, if you push the button LaTex, it will re-compile 'CompressionThesis.toc' file while if you push the button Tex, it will not compile 'CompressionThesis.toc'.
