Hi,

Should I use capital letters for referring to figures, tables, etc. in a thesis? Even if I use the plural?

Examples:

See Figures 4 and 5.
This topic is discussed in Chapter 11.
...given in Equation 4.3.

Refer to the Tables 4 and 5 for further details.

    Generally speaking, yes.

    However, in such formal writing, a university may mandate that your document be prepared in accordance with a specific style guide. If that's the case, don't look for your answer here but go with what the authoritative source says.
