# LaTeX Resources

One popular method for documents, especially when dealing with complicated formulae, is LaTeX. In particular, we encourage the use of LaTeX in the preparation of your dissertation and proposal. The buthesis.sty LaTeX package contains a set of macro definitions that modifies the ‘book’ standard document class to conform with the university dissertation style requirements. Please see the comment at the beginning of the package for instructions on how to use this package.
