Making a list of hypothesis and references to the hypothesis

I have some problems with making a list of hypothesis and references to my hypothesis.

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper, makeidx]{memoir}
\usepackage{ntheorem}

% *************** hyperlinks in PDF documents ***************

\ifpdf
\pdfcompresslevel=9
\usepackage[plainpages=false,pdfpagelabels,bookmarksnumbered,%
citecolor=black,%

\input supp-mis.tex
\input supp-pdf.tex
\pdfimageresolution=600
\usepackage{thumbpdf}
\else
\usepackage{hyperref}
\fi
\usepackage{memhfixc}

% *************** Hypothesis ***************
\newtheorem{hypo}{Hypothesis}[chapter]
\newtheorem{hypolist}{Hypothesis}[chapter]

\newcommand*\hypothesis[1]{%
\stepcounter{hypolist}%
\begin{hypo}#1\end{hypo}
}

\begin{document}
\chapter{}
\hypothesis{Name were we at hope. Remainder household direction zealously the unwilling bed sex. Lose and gay ham sake met that. Stood her place one ten spoke yet. Head case knew ever set why over.

\chapter*{List of Hypothesis}
\listtheorems{hypolist}

\end{document}


It seems that hyperref in combination with ntheorem cause unwanted references in the hypothesis list. The list of hypothesis contains a reference to the chapter (chapter 1) and the hypothesis number (hypo 1.1.) following the hypothesis. If a remove the hyperref package the list of hypothesis appears as I want it to be.

Q1: how can I get a list of hypothesis without the chapter ref. and hypo ref. following the hypothesis, without removing hyperref?

Q2: how to refer in the text to the hypothesis?

-

\usepackage[hyperref]{ntheorem}


and to use \refstepcounter{hypolist} rather than \stepcounter{hypolist}.

If you want to set references to your hypotheses, I suggest to add an optional argument:

\newcommand*\hypothesis[2][]{%
\refstepcounter{hypolist}%
\if!#1!\else\label{#1}\fi
\begin{hypo}#2\end{hypo}
}


so that you can say

\hypothesis[foo]{Text}


and then \ref{foo} will refer to the number of the hypothesis.

By the way, your input has some glitches.

1. makeidx is not an option for \documentclass

2. thumbpdf is not necessary, unless you use a very old PDF previewer that can't generate thumbnails on the fly.

3. Inputting supp-mis.tex and supp-pdf.tex shouldn't be necessary.

A different solution allows for a better input:

% *************** Hypothesis ***************
\newtheorem{hypoin}{Hypothesis}[chapter]
\newtheorem{hypoaux}{Hypothesis}[chapter]
\usepackage{environ,etoolbox}
\makeatletter
\NewEnviron{hypo}{%
\refstepcounter{hypoaux}%
\begin{hypoin}\BODY\end{hypoin}
}
\patchcmd\listtheorems
{\begingroup}
{\begingroup\let\label\@gobble}
{}{}
\makeatother


If you change your code with this one, then your hypotheses can be input in the following way:

\begin{hypo}\label{foo}
This is one of the hypotheses.
\end{hypo}


and you can reference to it with the usual \ref{foo}.

Thanks a million for the solution and for pointing out the glitches. That makeidx is not an option for \documentclass surprised me. I thought I need it to make a .idx. I used to thumbpdf in case of. –  Adam Feb 17 '13 at 11:37
@Adam It's \usepackage{makeidx} and then \makeindex if you want to make an index. Using thumbpdf is just a waste of time, in my opinion. –  egreg Feb 17 '13 at 11:43
Thanks and your right the thumbpdf is a waste of time. –  Adam Feb 17 '13 at 13:06
