How we can have chapters without numbers

Postby juan21 » Fri Jan 13, 2017 5:24 pm

Good morning, how do I number the chapters of a document? I am doing a thesis in LaTeX, I know that you can use the command \include, the question is this: the thesis consists of three chapters and an introduction. I use the \include command in the introduction and LaTeX registers it as chapter 1, how do I remove that?

Hi Juan!

Use \chapter*{Introduction} if you don't want to have that one as a numbered chapter (and not in the table of contents. Use \chapter{Your heading} for your numbered chapters.

If you use a KOMA-Script document class (I strongly recommend that) then you can use \addchap*{Introduction} to have it unnumbered, but listed in the table of contents.
