How do I do in latex, a negative indent on an enumerated list inside a Theorem? I have a math book where sometimes the theorems are written like this: ---------- Theorem. If all cows are spherical and either: (1) the moon is made of green cheese, or (2) there are canals on Mars then pluto is a planet. ---------- How do I copy this style in latex, specificly the negative indent on the "or"? -- Paul Elliott 1(512)837-1096 pelliott@BlackPatchPanel.com PMB 181, 11900 Metric Blvd Suite J http://www.free.blackpatchpanel.com/pme/ Austin TX 78758-3117

There may be a more elegant way to do this, but here's one way: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{enumitem,amsthm} \setenumerate{label={(\arabic*)},leftmargin=.75in} \newcommand*{\OR}{\hspace{-3em}or\hspace{2.1em}} \newtheoremstyle{logic}% {3pt}{3pt}{\normalfont}{}{\bfseries}{.}{\newline}{} \theoremstyle{logic} \newtheorem{theorem}{Theorem} \begin{document} \begin{theorem} If all cows are spherical and either: \begin{enumerate} \item the moon is made of green cheese, \item \OR there are canals on Mars \end{enumerate} then pluto is a planet. \end{theorem} \end{document} Alan
