This page contains style files used with LaTeX2e and/or LyX for writing theses conforming to the Caltech Ph.D. thesis regulations.
The LaTeX2e class was modified from the work of D. M. Zimmerman (v1.2). There is another package from A. D. Lewis which is (seemingly) more professional. However, I found his package after I had put some work on Zimmerman's, so little investigation has been done to Lewis's package.
Please look at the LaTeX2e class and/or the LyX template below for usage. I will write an installation guide in another page.
export TEXINPUTS=.:~/.texmf//:into your shell init-script file, e.g., ~/.bash_profile.
LyX is a WYSIWYM document processor which produces final output via LaTeX. My past experience with LyX shows that it helps to concentrate on the contents by taking care of many (La)TeX details for the writer. Its ability to work with many other softwares, such as XFIG and BibTeX, also dramatically reduces the work related to project management.

Since the contents lines for figures and tables are not indented (a change
introduced by Zimmerman to support long names), those for other stuffs,
such as algorithms and theorems, should not be indented either. For example,
the third parameter for
\@dottedtocline in ntheorem.sty should
be changed from
Note: Please let me know if there is any bug in the latest version. Email me if you want an older version.
