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?

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{sectsty}
\sectionfont{\centering}
\renewcommand{\thesection}{\S\,(\roman{section})}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Introduction}
\section{section 1}
\chapter{Topics in Claims Reserving}
\section{section 1}
\section{section2}
\chapter{Conclusion}
\end{document}

  • Centering can be done with titlesec package too, but sectsty is simpler. – user11232 May 9 '15 at 15:16
