# Template for latex thesis

The second command is the one that actually specifies the .bib file you wish to use. The ones I created for this tutorial were called , , . ., , but once again, you don't include the file extension. At the moment, the .bib file is in the same directory as the LaTeX document too. However, if your .bib file was elsewhere (which makes sense if you intend to maintain a centralized database of references for all your research), you need to specify the path as well, \bibliography{/some/where/sample} or \bibliography{../sample1} (if the .bib file is in the parent directory of the .tex document that calls it).

I’m a bit new to this and have had trouble applying these ideas to my table of contents — perhaps because mine is un-numbered? I’m using the book (AMS) document class and have tocloft, and as of now, the “part” and “chapter” entries in the table of contents are set to the same indentation level. I want to make things more obvious and have the “part” entries not indented, but the “chapter” entries intended a bit. Is there any way to do this? I’ve tried throwing some things into the Preamble that I thought might work, but I keep getting error messages about “}” not being there, or there being too many.
