I'm French so it's not easy to explain my problem but I'll try.

I use fancyhdr to make my own headings (book class).

I want the section's title at the right of the heading in small caps, and only in odds pages. But when I print it I can read e.g., "2. DERIVATION" which is what I was expecting.

My question is: how can I remove the number of the section, so that I can obtain just "DERIVATION" and not "2.DERIVATION"?

I wrote :

\fancyhead{} % clear all header fields
\fancyfoot{} % clear all footer fields
\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0 pt}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0 pt}

\leftmark is for chapter and is OK.

The problem is with the \rightmark, how can I redefine it?

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they are marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). –  egreg Jul 26 '11 at 15:07
