Failure to prove that you have made such a contribution generally leads to failure.
To this end, your thesis must show two important things: Your contribution to knowledge generally lies in your solution or answer.
You organize this section by idea, and not by author or by publication.
For example if there have been three important main approaches to Zylon Algorithms to date, you might organize subsections around these three approaches, if necessary: 3.1 Iterative Approximation of Zylons 3.2 Statistical Weighting of Zylons 3.3 Graph-Theoretic Approaches to Zylon Manipulation 4.
That means that your readers may not have any experience with some of the material needed to follow your thesis, so you need to give it to them.
A different title than that given above is usually better; e.g., "A Brief Review of Frammis Algebra." 3.
Since this is one of the sections that the readers are definitely looking for, highlight it by using the word "problem" or "question" in the title: e.g.
"Research Question" or "Problem Statement", or maybe something more specific such as "The Large-Scale Zylon Algorithm Problem." 5.
The generic thesis skeleton can be used for any thesis.
While some professors may prefer a different organization, the essential elements in any thesis will be the same. Always remember that a thesis is a formal document: every item must be in the appropriate place, and repetition of material in different places should be eliminated. Introduction This is a general introduction to what the thesis is all about -- it is not just a description of the contents of each section.
