A.4 Larger book template

This is a somewhat elaborate template for a book. See book template, for a simpler one.

This template uses \frontmatter, \mainmatter, and \backmatter to control the typography of the three main areas of a book (see \frontmatter, \mainmatter, \backmatter). The book has a bibliography and an index.

Also notable is that it uses \include and \includeonly (see Splitting the input). While you are working on a chapter you can comment out all the other chapter entries from the argument to \includeonly. That will speed up compilation without losing any information such as cross-references. (Material that does not need to come on a new page is brought in with \input instead of \include. You don’t get the cross-reference benefit with \input.)
