My code generated unwanted page break once I start the align environment. The best way to show it, is to provide the relevant code so someone can compile it.

My code looks like this

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[hmargin=2.5cm,vmargin=1cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{parskip}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}
\section{Derivations}
\subsection{Derivations2}

\begin{equation}
c^i_1 + \frac{c^i_2}{1+r} + (n-r)\frac{x^i}{1+r}  = wl^i  -\tau 
\end{equation}

\begin{align}

I understand that LaTeX, since I have the align environment, tries to fit it in one page, but this leaves the other page almost empty. Is there a way to fix it? Any help will be much appreciated.

  • ... or you could \end{align} and \begin{align} again where the break is wanted. – doed Nov 24 '13 at 23:26
  • @UlrikeFischer please, could you write the answer? – doed Nov 24 '13 at 23:27
