    The most important thing about your thesis is the width of the margins. And the location of the page numbers. Getting past thesis committees is a breeze, compared to getting past the margin lady.

    Of course, in the modern world, you probably don't have to re-type the whole thing just because a few periods are over the line. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I had some nitrogeneous heterocyclic derivative of oleic acid on my popcorn at the movies last night.

    So, what do you suggest?
    Were you a member of a committee before?

    Yes, but being part of a committee is not as traumatic as being the subject of one, and therefore less memorable.

    Of course, you should have agreed on the outline of your thesis with your advisor and committee members, at least informally, and probably at an actual meeting. For most of the theses that I've been involved with, the first chapter is a critical review of the topic and the other chapters are in the form of research papers, prepared for submission. Optionally, a final short synthesis chapter might summarize how your work has added to the subject discussed in chapter one and suggest directions for future work.

    For style, again discuss with your advisor, but generally use the style manual for the society or journal to which you would be most likely to submit a paper. e.g. The ACS Style Guide http://pubs.acs.org/isbn/9780841239999

    As for the page format, you need to seek out the dreaded Margin Lady at your institution and find out what the requirements are.
