# How to create a paragraph header centered and with '(a)' label

For my \documentclass[11pt, a4paper, oneside]{Thesis} in subsection 2.3.4 I created code for paragraphs:

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper, oneside]{Thesis}
\subsection{The reasons of wide values}
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{5}
\renewcommand\theparagraph{\alph{paragraph}}
\paragraph{State of the vegetation}
\paragraph{Climate}
\paragraph{Methods}
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{5}
\renewcommand\thesubparagraph{\arabic{subparagraph}}
\subparagraph{Lysimeters}
\subparagraph{Energy balance}
\subparagraph{Water balance}


But I want my paragraphs look like this:

2.3.4 The reasons of wide values

Some text

(a) State of vegetation
Some text

(b) Climate
Some text

(c) Methods
1.Lysimeters.-Some text

2.Energy balance.-Some text

3.Water balance.-Some text


What do I need to change in the code for the look I want?

Please forgive me if I use wrongly LaTex terminology. I am new to the LaTex.

You may use the package sectsty, but it doesn't provide centering for paragraph and subparagraph, but to indent.

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{sectsty}
\paragraphfont{\hspace*{0.2\linewidth}\centering}

\setcounter{secnumdepth}{5}
\renewcommand\theparagraph{(\alph{paragraph})}
\renewcommand\thesubparagraph{\arabic{subparagraph}}

\begin{document}
\subsection{The reasons of wide values}
\paragraph{State of the vegetation}
\paragraph{Climate}
\paragraph{Methods}
\subparagraph{Lysimeters}
\subparagraph{Energy balance}
\subparagraph{Water balance}
\end{document}

Thank you! This is exactly what I wanted. Only how to make/put points after 1. Lysimeters. and then some text at the same line? –  Sasha May 25 '12 at 12:42
To get points after the subparagraph numbers just define: \renewcommand\thesubparagraph{\arabic{subparagraph}.}. For a point after Lysimeters add one. –  Peter Breitfeld May 25 '12 at 12:47
Brilliant! Thank you very much! –  Sasha May 25 '12 at 13:04
