You have an (empty) abstract

You have an (empty) abstract in the front matter and you included one in the body of your document. (Do not put an abstract in the body.) You should create a new document in SW(P) and use the MIT thesis shell. Save this shell as a document. Open the front matter dialog and replace the entries with yours. Some friendly suggestions: You should read the manual for creating documents in SW(P). (This is a free download on the MacKichan site.) You will save a great deal of time and frustration if you use the capabilities of SW(P). Normally, you should avoid posting a complete file to address a particular problem. It is better to post a minimal working example. An MWE is a minimal file which demonstrates a single problem you are having.
