How do I format a book so that the chapters are sub-divided into numbered sections, where:

  1. only the section number, but not the chapter number, appears in the section heading (i.e. the third section of chapter four should be headed by 3, rather than by 4.3);

  2. the section number is centered in the page; and

  3. the section number is preceded by a "section" symbol?

  4. And is there a command that will produce the section numbers in lowercase roman numerals?

1 Answer 1

\section{section 1}
\chapter{Topics in Claims Reserving}
\section{section 1}

enter image description here

  • Centering can be done with titlesec package too, but sectsty is simpler.
