[Tex/LaTex] Theorem without numbering


Is it possible to have single theorems without numbering? I would like to be able to switch them off individually with asterisk-* or have a nono-theorem environment.


Best Answer

Using the amsthm package, you can switch numbering on and off for individual theorems just by defining environments with nearly identical names (as with equation environments):



\begin{theorem}  A numbered theorem.    \end{theorem}
\begin{theorem*} An unnumbered theorem. \end{theorem*}
