I'm using the `amsthm`

package. The statement of the theorem currently appears immediately after the words "Theorem X." I'd like the statement of the theorem to appear on a new line. Is this possible?

Considering the following MWE

there are two possible approaches.

Thead hocsolution:Simply adding a

`~\\`

at the end of line 8 of the MWE will yield your desired behaviour. However, you will have to do this every time you state a theorem.The 'correct' solutionBetter yet, define your own theorem style using the

`\newtheoremstyle`

macro as shown in the`amsthm`

documentation. To do this, just insert the following lines between lines 3 and 4 of the MWE, i.e. directly before you define your`thm`

environment:The newline is produced by setting the 8th argument (space after theorem head) to

`\newline`

. The other parameters are the default settings of the`plain`

style of`amsthm`

. Of course, you can customize those as well, if you want your theorems to look different.
