comment How to prevent paragraph breaks after theorem environments?
So I take it that as part of the definition of the theorem environment the paragraph is ended? I generally see theorem grouped with itemize and others in the set of "paragraph-making environments", but my example above suggest that there are subtle differences. Are these differences documented somewhere other than in the LaTeX source?

comment How to prevent paragraph breaks after theorem environments?
To address your first comment: yes, it does look funny to state a theorem in the middle of a paragraph. But it does not look as funny to state definitions in the middle of a paragraph, especially when the definition is just one line long and motivated by the part of the paragraph immediately above it. Now imagine several definitions being made in succession in the same paragraph. \noindent is of course the obvious option. But I would prefer a solution that doesn't break when, say, new paragraph is denoted by vertical spacing instead of indentation.

comment Getting Started to Xetex for Devangari?
You may have better luck searching the internet using the more common transliteration of the name of the script, "devanagari", instead of your version, which lacks the "a" between "n" and "g". I also suggest changing your post to say devanagari instead, so that searches from Google or on this site will lead to this post.

comment Amsmath has problems with $e^{\sum{x}}$
Like TH, I cannot reproduce the problem, and yet I don't have the named font file either. This points to the OP having somehow a screwed up font map. Kudos for tracking down that the error is caused by an error in $HOME.

comment How to nest xymatrix in Xy-pic
I noticed. But I can't find a way to do it semi-automatically with Xy-pic. You can always position/draw arrows by hand (or through references as Stefan describes), but I suspect you don't want that. I'll edit if I think of something.

comment Beamer frame numbering in appendix
A slight non sequitur: one of my professors told me never to include the total number of slides in a presentation, because "it will only cause you dread [of running out of time], and the audience despair [of the never ending presentation]". He also said that a good presenter should "know where he is in the talk without referring to a silly number".

comment How to cite chapter in book?
@Trevis: if you have different authors for different chapters, you are better off using @incollection, unless you have a case where a book with a primary author includes a chapter/appendix by someone else, in which case your solution will give clearer information.

@inpart? I've never seen that one. Don't you mean @inbook as the OP stated? One of chapter and pages is required for that.

Or if you use a bibliography manager (such as JabRef), you can let the program keep track of what possible fields are.

To get prepended subscripts, you may also consider using the tensor package, see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/334/non-kludgey-left-subscripts
