    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

    \linespace{factor}

    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

    \usepackage{setspace}

    Then you can use commands like
    \singlespacing
    \onehalfspacing
    \doublespacing
    \setstretch{1.1}

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