Line Spacing in Latex

    I'm not totally sure this is the right place to put this but here goes. I am using a thesis package from a different university for my thesis and I am having an issue with the line spacing.


    The vertical spacing between equations is a bit much. How exactly can I change this spacing for the equations for the whole document? The gap, I assume, should be about the same gap as the spacing between lines of normal text.

    There are two ways of doing this. The easiest is by putting in your preamble


    where factor is a number. 1.0 is normal. 1.3 is one-and-a-half spacing and 1.6 is double spacing. And so on. So condider putting in \linespace{0.7} or similar.

    You could also put in the package


    Then you can use commands like

    If you have acces to the .sty package of your package, then change one of these factors.
