I have this code:

\usepackage{ dsfont }
\section{Prove 1}
Def.: let be \( \mathfrak{m}: x \to \mathcal{P}( \mathcal{P}(x))\), \( \mathfrak{m} \) is topology on \( x \) if \par
1) \( x \neq \emptyset \) \par
2) \( \forall a \in x (x \in \mathfrak{m}(a) )\) \par
3) \(\forall a \in x (\forall t \in \mathfrak{m}(a)( a \in t))\) \par
4) \( \forall a \in x(\forall r,s \in \mathfrak{m}(a)((r \cap s) \in \mathfrak{m}(a) ))\) \par
5) \( \forall a \in x( \forall t \in \mathfrak{m}(x)(\exists r \in \mathfrak{m}(x)(\forall y \in r(t \in \mathfrak{m}(y)))))\) \par
6) \( \forall a \in x(\forall t \in \mathfrak{m}(x)(\forall r \subseteq x(t \subseteq r \to r \in \mathfrak{m}(x)))) \)
\section{Prove 2}

the pdf is following:

Because the command \par doesn't work?

Why don't use enumerate? – kiss my armpit Nov 2 '13 at 19:13
@Marienplatz, how to do ? – mle Nov 2 '13 at 19:14
\begin{enumerate} \item \end{enumerate} – Sigur Nov 2 '13 at 19:17
\par is working, it's just that flushleft sets the paragraph indentation to 0pt. (However in this case, as has already been mentioned, you want the enumerate environment.) – Nicola Talbot Nov 2 '13 at 19:39

\documentclass[preview,border=12pt]{standalone}% change it back to your own documentclass



\section{Prove 1}

\item \( x \neq \emptyset \) 
\item \( \forall a \in x (x \in \mathfrak{m}(a) )\) 
\item \(\forall a \in x (\forall t \in \mathfrak{m}(a)( a \in t))\)

I did not consider whether or not your math expressions should get more correction (such as replacing the nested braces with something like \left(...\right)) as I am not competent in your field. – kiss my armpit Nov 2 '13 at 19:22
IMO no braces are needed at all. – marczellm Nov 2 '13 at 20:53
