I want to use the section numbering in the equations like (1.1), (1.2), ... (3.2). But I don't want to use \section command. How can I do this?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Can you expand your question adding some more detail? If there's no section, what should the first number mean? – egreg Jun 1 '13 at 11:08

    To the close-voters: I do not completely understand what makes you sure that this question is a duplicate of the other one. It might be one, but IMHO there's currently not enough information to decide that. – yo' Jun 4 '13 at 22:00


You might want to use the \numberwithin directive, like



\section{First section}
    \hat{f}(\omega) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{(2 \pi)^n}} \int_{\mathbb{R}^n} f(t) \, \mathrm{e}^{\mathrm{i} \omega t} \, \mathrm{d}t
