Writing Thesis in XeLaTeX—a Template for MIPT Students
I recommend my students to use this bachelor/master degree thesis template to prepare their reports. The template is prepared to match standards set by our department, and it served me well in my time. It is in Russian, and some effort has been made to match it against the Russian typography tradition.
Also, here is the presentation on how to get started.
I plan to prepare updates to it from time to time, but how they will be published—it depends on whether I’ll manage to handle WordPress.
Update August 2015: the archive URL is updated. The template has also been retouched a bit.
