# How to change the abstract to have no page break afterwards

I am writing a thesis in the report document class. I have a title page that is separate. On the next page I want the Abstract and the Acknowledgements:

\begin{abstract}
This is the abstract.
\end{abstract}

\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Acknowledgements}
\begin{abstract}
I would like to thank...
\end{abstract}


Doing that puts them on two separate pages though. How can I change the abstract environment/create a new environment that behaves in the way I want? Thanks!

With the titlepage option, the abstract environment is defined to use a separate page.

You can do it simply by adding the acknowledgments to the abstract:

\begin{abstract}
This is the abstract.

\vspace{2in} % or whatever

\begin{center}
\bfseries Acknowledgements
\end{center}

I would like to thank...
\end{abstract}

• Thanks. Added a \noindent in front of "I would like to thank" so that it behaves like the abstract above. Aug 26 '13 at 9:50
