I've looked around for this, and haven't been able to find a satisfactory answer; How would one go about producing (automatically) a table of equations, just a numbered list of used equations, possibly linked to their position in the document, as say an appendix?

Do you want the list to contain for each numbered equation, the equation number and the page, or the entire equation and the page? – Matthew Leingang Nov 5 '10 at 10:10
Not to be absurd, but it'd be nice to know how to do all three! :) – EricR Nov 9 '10 at 16:09

With the tocloft package you can create your own List of ... list. Here is a nice tutorial.

Does that work for non-floating content? – Joseph Wright Nov 5 '10 at 10:08
I think so. At the moment I don't have time to try it out – Alessandro Cuttin Nov 5 '10 at 12:37

The thmtools package defines \listoftheorems which does pretty much what you want. See page 7 of the manual.

(Disclaimer: I've not actually used it, but I've seen it recommended on here before.)

I just realised that the question was about equations not theorems, but I'll leave it up here in case there is a way to do what is wanted via thmtools... – Seamus Nov 5 '10 at 13:46
Completely acceptable, cheers, that's a tangential question that's nice to have answered. – EricR Nov 9 '10 at 16:10
