@Sigur -- better to use \begin{equation}\begin{aligned} ... \end{aligned}\end{equation}

comment How to change theorem name from english to french in LaTeX?
@ChristianHupfer -- good intention, but if you look into the bundling of ams packages, you will see that amsthm is included with the document classes, and is not related, except by attention to interoperability, to amsmath. lumping them together has resulted in erroneous questions to the maintenance group.

comment Babel with UKenglish does not use British English hyphenation?
the dictionary used to develop the uk hyphenation patterns doesn't always have the hyphen positions you expect. see the question Why does \usepackage[british]{babel} change the hyphenation to wrong?. (i'm 3000 miles from my bookshelf, so can't check this particular word, but will try to do so when i return home.)

comment How to change theorem name from english to french in LaTeX?
@ChristianHupfer -- amsmath has nothing to do with theorems, names or otherwise. and if amsthm is being used, the "title" name is input explicitly by the author, not predefined. this is described in the documentation -- texdoc amsthm.

comment Format the LaTeX code of an array
not relevant to the question, but example 1 would be better handled by align rather than an array.

comment Add a footnote on the paper title
you might try separating the two parts as \footnotemark and \footnotetext{...}, the latter outside the title.

comment Using a theorem-based environment inside a list
@pre-kidney -- you seem to have found a workaround using ntheorem. i'm not familiar with the adjustments in that package, so if it does what you need, use it.

comment macro to showcase newly defined macros
a better heading might be "macro to print definition code verbatim". your original title describes why you want to do something, but not what you want to do.

comment Problem with enumerate and margins
a blank line after the centered element, followed by \noindent, should have the desired effect. but i don't know whether this is logically appropriate.

comment Figure at the bottom of same page as another item
yes, i did mean comments. sorry for the confusion. i don't think it's possible to do globally, since even one counterexample (which i described in my previous comment) tosses that hope out the window.

comment How do you display words, not variables, in equations in LaTeX?
@at. -- \text may work here, but if this display is set within an italicized theorem, \text will follow the style of the surrounding text, and be (text) italic, which is probably not what you want, hence the suggestion for \mathrm. alternatively, \text{\upshape ...} should also ensure a roman style.

comment Figure at the bottom of same page as another item
the answers given to the cited question do apply here. you will have to place the figure input after the previous page has been filled, and early enough on the desired page that there is still enough space available for it to fit. and in an extreme case, if this pushes the reference to the next page, you may have to do some rewriting.

comment Using a theorem-based environment inside a list
you don't say what packages you're using, but most theorem packages expect that you'll be on the "outer" level when inputting a theorem object. unless you expect to cross-reference this claim later, i'd suggest simply emulating the style manually, or providing a "simple" definition for the situation. not a great approach, but trying to overcome a rather complicated theorem environment definition is going to be at least a headache, and may well cause problems elsewhere.

comment Specific \epigraph style
it seems to me that "Begin at the beginning," needs to have quotes around it; otherwise the quote is disjointed. (i'm not familiar enough with epigraph to have any other comments. i was thrown off by the absence of a closing quote after "beginning," in the original question, thinking that maybe epigraph provided the "outside" quotes, but i think that's not the case.)
