One popular method for documents, especially when dealing with complicated formulas, is LaTeX. Here are a few LaTeX-related resources.

Graduate Students have made required changes over the years to a LaTeX style file that meets the requirements of the School of Graduate Studies, this style file can be downloaded here: quthesis.zip.
Additionally, you can take a look at an existing Thesis Template, along with Windows and UNIX online tutorials that will get you well on your way.
These templates are provided as is. We simply don’t have the resources to constantly maintain it. That being said, we hope you find them useful.
- “A Guide to LATEX: Document Preparation for Beginners and Advanced Users”, Helmut Kopka. This book is exactly what it says – geared for both beginners and advanced users; it is especially helpful for bibtex. ISBN 0201398257.
- “The Latex Companion” by Michel Goossens, Frank Mittelbach and Alexander Samarin. This one is also very good, but I found that it made more sense after I had been using Latex for a while. ISBN 0201541998.
