I am using the
book documentclass for my thesis. The chapter titles are the normal ones but I would like to know is it is possible to change them to something more fancy, preferable without changing the documentclass.
In particular, I am interested to those chapter titles which, on the first page of every chapter, they have a solid black line on top (i.e., in the header), above which and flushed left is written "Chapter x" while, directly below that line and flushed right is the chapter name/title.
I have seen various theses written in this style although I cannot find which one it is.
I am aware of
memoir etc but the styles of those packages – at least the ones which I have seen – do not appeal to me.
If anyone is familiar with the style I described and knows a smooth way to do it within the documentclass
book, I would be glad to know it.
If, for any reason whatsoever, this is incompatible with documentclass
book, I would also like to know alternative solutions.
