I have a section in my thesis which includes some mathematical notations. This section is after Bibligraphy. My problem is that the second page of this list appears with bibliography heading. How can i solve this problem? This is my main file.

\usepackage{amsmath, amsthm, amscd, amsfonts, amssymb,graphicx, grffile, color, mathrsfs}
\textwidth = 15.8 cm \textheight = 22.3 CM \oddsidemargin = 0.7 cm
\evensidemargin = 2.1 cm
\topmargin = -0.5 cm
\theoremstyle{remark} \newtheorem{remark}[theorem]{Remark}
\baselineskip=0.9 cm
\setcounter{page}{1} \pagestyle{headings}

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Subject index}

Welcome to TeX.sx! Could you reduce your code to a minimal working example (MWE), which will make it much easier for others to help? – Corentin Mar 15 '13 at 14:20

unless the sym file starts with a \chapter command you will probably have to add \markboth{Notation}{Notation} just after the relevant\addcontentsline`.

if sym does contain a \chapter command, you should add the \markboth after that line.

however, a \chapter command should create proper running heads, so i assume you have headed the notation list by some other method.
