I came across the following error message:

! Undefined control sequence.
l.206 ...quad a_k > \displaystyle\sum_{{\substrack
                                              {j=1 \\ j \neq k}}}^N\disp...

Pardon my ignorance.

    It would be helpful if, in your posting, you only included the error message and left out the (at this point) meaningless LaTeX warnings.

You are looking for the command \substack not \substrack.

  • Thak's for everyone and specially for Werner. After correction, I still have this error message: ! Undefined control sequence. l.206 ...\quad a_k > \displaystyle\sum_{{\substack {j=1 \\ j \neq k}}}^N\disp..

    @Labaïr If you have an error message, why not edit the question showing what you did and the error message?

  • @Labaïr: The remarques environment is not defined. But this could be a host of things. For example, if it should be a "theorem" or a regular environment. You need to post more information.

\substack is defined in the amsmath package, you need to load that package (or one of the ams classes that includes it)

  • so clearly you need to load whatever package defines that. i have never used it but lmgtfy.com/?q=latex+remarques shows some hits Jan 24, 2012 at 15:30
  • I write \newenvironment{remark}[1][\textbf{Remarques:}]{\begin{trivlist} \item[\hskip \labelsep {\bfseries #1}]}{\end{trivlist}} with the package ntheorem

  • I'm really surprised that after you are able to ignore the crowd of people who ask you to be fair and accept the answers to your questions. To your issue: Your environment is obviously named remark and not remarque.
