  • Structure
    • If using the Ifi latex example thesis, do not use the content (divsion in parts, etc.)
    • The "nifty gadget" structure is a good starting point
    • Example structure:
      • Introduction
        • General introduction leading up to the state of the art in the field and challenges that need to be addressed
        • Objective / research questions
        • Contributions of this thesis to the field
        • Outline

      • Discussion
        • Discussion (Taking a step back and interpreting/discussing at a general level what you have learned/implemented)
        • Conclusion
        • Future Work


  • Figures and tables
    • Reference in the text to all figures and tables
    • If figures are not self-explanatory, explain either in caption or in text. Do not duplicate the explanatory text.
    • Line-based figures should be included as vector graphics, and definitely not as low resolution images with compression artifacts.
    • Try to keep figure fonts/text about the same size as in the text
    • Do not copy-paste figures from other work, unless you have author/publisher consent (from same research group). If remaking a figure, refer to the original in the caption
    • Creative commons / similar. Can be used. E.g. flickr, wikimedia commons.
    • Figures should be centered and no text around
    • If using "list of figures" in latex, please use caption summaries (using []) to avoid a very long list


  • Grammar and spelling
    • Typos and grammar mistakes should be avoided, and one needs to actively work with this
      • Copy-paste to Word or similar for a grammar + syntax check. Only syntax checking is not sufficient
      • Have a human read through as well!
  • References
    • If you want to refer to a website without any specific document, one can include it in a footnote (as to not "spam" the reference list)

Innhold

Thesis outline, chapter by chaper

Introduction

  • Brief intro to the area (and problem)
  • Brief state-of-the-art in the research field
  • Move on to the challenge - what you are planning to do to fix this / why you want to do this
  • Research/thesis goals/questions (with sub-goals)
  • Contributions - your own contributions with this thesis work
  • Outline / structure of the thesis (what you will do in each chapter)

Methods / Implementation

  • A concept figure could be nice to introduce the full setup
  • Software, hardware, tools (you can put this in a separate chapter if you have a lot)
    • Brief overview over the tool/sw
    • Version numbers, details about computational solutions (E.g. using physX version x.y rigid body solver, DEAP version z.æ, ...)
    • How the tools are connected - overview figure
  • what you have developed in your system
    • algorithms (pseudo-code, not source code here), or models (incl. equations)
    • be careful about the divide between your own contribution and previous work here, if writing too much about a concept already developed, move to the background.
  • How you use things / experimental setup
    • E.g. using this and that instance of an EA. Multi-objective, NSGA-II
    • How the mutation is implemented, if not standard
    • The fitness/objective function(s)
    • Hyperparameters should go in a table - either here if "global" or in tables for each experiment

Experiments and results
