I wish to remove the indent created by Latex at the start of the sub-sub-section heading
'Confidence Set', consider the below MWE

\documentclass[journal,onecolumn,11pt, peerreview]{IEEEtran}
    \usepackage[caption=false, font=normalsize, labelfont=sf, textfont=sf]{subfig}
\usepackage[caption=false, font=footnotesize]{subfig}
\def\BibTeX{{\rm B\kern-.05em{\sc i\kern-.025em b}\kern-.08em
\title{Place holder title}

% Wish to remove indent created in next line 
\subsubsection{\textbf{\underline{Confidence Set}}}
We denote this set as $C^*$.\\
Say, the support of r.v. $X$ has n indices 1,2,\ldots,n. Then, to find $C^*$, we\\
(i) First sort the empirical p.m.f. in descending order and obtain the sorted indices as $q_1,q_2,\ldots,q_n$.\\
\sum_{i = 1}^{k}p(x_i) > 1 - \epsilon    
Thus, the confidence interval is the minimal such interval whose cumulative probability is greater than (1 - $\epsilon$) where $\epsilon$ is a small number, and is modelled as a Hyper-Parameter.\\

The output produced is:

re-def \thesubsubsectiondis

Place this command before begin{document}


Hope this helps

  • Thank you, this removes the indent but it also removes the closing parenthesis after 1 i.e. 1) becomes 1 . Any way we can keep the ) or add a . instead of the ) ?

    i update my answer with the closing parenthesis. You can add ) or . or what ever you like after \unskip\arabic{subsubsection}
