Customize numbering in the theorem environment

Postby Handerb » Fri Mar 28, 2014 3:11 pm

Hi community,

I know similar topics exist, but unfortunately none could solve the problem.
I would like to number the assumptions (created by the newtheorem environment) in my article by A1, A2, etc. That is, I have the command:

  1. \newtheorem{assump}{Assumption}
  2. \begin{article}
  4. \begin{assump}
  5. This assumption is supposed to be labelled "Assumption A1".
  6. \end{assump}

Any ideas how this can be achieved?

You can redefine \theassump

  1. \newtheorem{assump}{Assumption}
  2. \renewcommand\theassump{A\arabic{assump}}
