I have to use \section*{} in my thesis because I need align the TOC. But when I use \numberwithin{}{} equations are numbered like (0.1), (0.2) and so on. It seems that \numberwithin{}{} does not recognize sections when it is used \section*. The same occurs when I try to number propositions according to sections, that is, they became proposition 0.1,an so on. How can I use both?

There is no incompatibility. The counter section starts at zero. The command \section increases this counter instead of \section*. So you get the correct number of the section.

You can change the numbering scheme later on. However I don't think it's a good style changing the numbering scheme inside the document.

You can define your own section command to increment the section counter manually when you change the section with \section*. This may solve your problem. This example uses both the new command and the original \section* to show the difference.

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsthm}

\newcommand{\mysection}[1]{%
  \stepcounter{section}
  \section*{#1}
}
\newtheorem{theorem}{Teorema}[section] 

\begin{document}

\mysection{First section}
This section starts with \verb!\mysection!. The section counter is
incremented, but does not appear above.
\begin{theorem}\label{thm:first}
First theorem of first section.
\end{theorem}

\section*{Second section}
This section starts with \verb!section*!, so the section counter isn't
incremented. 
\begin{theorem}\label{thm:second}
First theorem of second section.
\end{theorem}

\mysection{Third section}
This section starts with \verb!\mysection!.
\begin{theorem}\label{thm:third}
First theorem of third section.
\end{theorem}

References: Teorema~\ref{thm:first}, Teorema~\ref{thm:second}, 
Teorema~\ref{thm:third}.
\end{document}

  • Thank you, Ethan! I just included \mysection and it works perfectly! – Marcelo Griebeler Jul 6 '13 at 16:38
