Thesis Statements Notes Author: mnovoa Last modified by: saboud
Writing a thesis is time consuming and hard work; your supervisor will encourage you to start writing up early in your final year. These notes are intended to help you produce your thesis.This document will be updated occasionally. If you have suggestions forinclusions, amendments or other improvements, please send them. Do so after youhave submitted the thesis--- I thank Marilyn Ball, Gary Bryant, Bill Whiten and J. Douglas, whose suggestions have been incorporated in this version. Substantial contributions will be acknowledged in future versions. I also take this opportunity tothank my own thesis advisers, Stjepan Marcelja and Jacob Israelachvili, for theirhelp and friendship, and to thank the graduate students to whom I have had the pleasure to be an adviser, a colleague and a friend. Opinions expressed in these notes aremine and do not necessarily reflect the policy of the University of New South Wales or of the School of Physics.Once you have identified the subject, you can now develop it into a thesis by making an assertion about it. If you have spent enough time reading and gathering information, you will be knowledgeable enough to have something to say about the subject, based on a combination of your own thinking and the thinking of your sources. If you have trouble making an assertion, try writing your topic at the top of a page and then listing everything you know and feel about it. Often from such a list you will discover an assertion that you then can use to fashion a working thesis. A good way to gauge the reasonableness of your claim is to see what other authors have asserted about the same topic. In fact, keep good notes on the views of others; the notes will prove a useful counterpoint to your own views as you write, and you may want to use them in your paper.
