I am currently putting a `\noindent`

before the first paragraph of each theorem, proof, etc. in my `memoir`

document. Is there any way to have `memoir`

do this automatically?

For example, is there any way to make this MWE more concise?

```
\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\newtheorem{thm}{Theorem}[chapter]
\begin{document}
\noindent This is my introduction.
This is the next paragraph of the introduction, which should be indented.
\begin{thm} (Theorem Name)
\noindent This is my theorem.
Note that I do want the ``(Theorem Name)'' to appear on the same line as where it says \textbf{Theorem 0.1}.
This is the next paragraph of the theorem, which should be indented.
\end{thm}
\noindent Here is a note about the theorem.
\begin{proof}
\noindent This proof has no name.
This is the next paragraph of the proof, which should be indented.
\end{proof}
\noindent This is my conclusion.
The end.
\end{document}
```

## Best Answer

To typeset the name of a certain theorem, use the optional argument of the theorem's environment, e.g.,

`\begin{thm}[Theorem Name]`

. In my example, I use the`thmtools`

package to conveniently define a new style.To suppress indentation in the first paragraph after a theorem, one may patch the commands

`\@endtheorem`

and`\endproof`

(using the`etoolbox`

package) and then use`%`

(the comment sign) in the text body. (EDIT: For details about`amsthm`

s implementation of theorems, see my answer to How to prevent paragraph breaks after theorem environments?)The

`\noindent`

in your example's first paragraph would be superfluous if it was preceded by a sectioning command like`\chapter`

or`\section`

.
