AbstractContains the thesis template using memoir class, which is mainly based on book class but permits better control of chapter styles for example. This template is an adaptation and modification of Oscar's. Memoir is a flexible class for typesetting poetry, fiction, non-fiction and mathematical works as books, reports, articles or manuscripts. UoB guidelines: The dissertation must be printed on A4 white paper. Paper up to A3 may be used for maps, plans, diagrams and illustrative material. Pages (apart from the preliminary pages) should normally be double-sided. Memoir class loads useful packages by default (see manual).
