To disable numbering document-wide, use `\setcounter{secnumdepth}{<x>}`, where `<x>` is `-1` for disabling numbering of `part` and lower levels, `0` for `section` and lower levels, and so on … – Qrrbrbirlbel Nov 11 '12 at 18:53
To supplement @Qrrbrbirlbel's comment/answer, to produce an individual section that is not numbered use `\section*` instead of `\section`. – Andrew Swann Nov 11 '12 at 19:02
Correction: `0` is for `chapter` (that doesn't exist in `article`) and `1` is for section. – Qrrbrbirlbel Nov 11 '12 at 19:02
