ntheorem.sty for LaTeX
by Wolfgang May and Andreas Schedler
ntheorem.sty is a package for handling theorem-like
Aditionally to several features for defining the layout of
theorem-like environments which can be regarded to be standard
requirements for a theorem-package, it provides solutions for
two related problems: placement of endmarks and generation of
lists of theorem-like environments.
In contrast to former approaches, it solves the problem of setting endmarks of theorem-like environments (theorems, definitions, examples, and proofs) automatically at the right positions, even if the environment ends with a displaymath or (even nested) list environments; it also copes with the amsmath package. This is done in the same manner as the handling of labels by using the .aux file.
It also introduces the generation of lists of theorem-like environments in the same manner as listoffigures.
After running LaTeX several times (depending on the complexity of references, in general, three runs are sufficient), the endmarks are set correctly, and theoremlists are generated.
Since ntheorem.sty uses the standard LaTeX \newtheorem command, existing documents can be switched to ntheorem.sty without having to change the .tex file. Also, it is compatible with LaTeX files using theorem.sty written by Frank Mittelbach.
