# [Tex/LaTex] Not numbering Remarks

numberingtheorems

If I have the following

\newtheorem{remark}{Remark}


I will obtain Remark 1, Remark 2 and so on. May I know how to remove the numbering in Remark? Like I just want the word "Remark" and not the number 1, 2, 3 and so on.

By reading the documentation of amsthm you will find that this definition:

\newtheorem*{}{}


allows you to not have numbers.

Look at this MWE:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\newtheorem*{remark}{Remark}

\begin{document}
\chapter{Introduction}
\section{The social interaction}
\begin{remark}[Homophily]
Homophily is the principle that a contact between similar people occurs at a
higher rate than among dissimilar people.
\end{remark}

\begin{remark}[Social distance]
Social distance describes the distance between different groups of society and is opposed to locational distance
\end{remark}

\end{document}


The result is:
