I'm using LyX and want to have an end mark for examples, definitions and theorems within chapters like this:

Theorem 1.1   Statement...... 
Definition 1.1   Statement...... 
Example 1.1   Statement...... 
Example 1.2   Statement...... 
Definition 1.2   Statement...... 

My LaTex preamble in LyX is:

\documentclass[12pt,oneside,english]{book}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}
\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{verbose,tmargin=4cm,bmargin=4cm,lmargin=4cm,rmargin=2cm}

I would highly appreciate your help to figure out this problem. Thanks

Taking some guidance from Denoting the end of example/remark, use the following definitions for your theorem-like environments:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Textclass specific LaTeX commands.
  \theoremstyle{definition}
  \ifx\thechapter\undefined
    \newtheorem{examplex}{\protect\examplename}
  \else
    \newtheorem{examplex}{\protect\examplename}[chapter]
  \fi
  \newenvironment{example}
    {\pushQED{\qed}\renewcommand{\qedsymbol}{$\triangle$}\examplex}
    {\popQED\endexamplex}
  \theoremstyle{plain}
  \ifx\thechapter\undefined
    \newtheorem{factx}{\protect\factname}
  \else
    \newtheorem{factx}{\protect\factname}[chapter]
  \fi
  \newenvironment{fact}
    {\pushQED{\qed}\renewcommand{\qedsymbol}{$\blacksquare$}\factx}
    {\popQED\endfactx}
  \theoremstyle{definition}
  \ifx\thechapter\undefined
    \newtheorem{defnx}{\protect\definitionname}
  \else
    \newtheorem{defnx}{\protect\definitionname}[chapter]
  \fi
  \newenvironment{defn}
    {\pushQED{\qed}\renewcommand{\qedsymbol}{$\Box$}\defnx}
    {\popQED\enddefnx}
  \theoremstyle{plain}
  \ifx\thechapter\undefined
    \newtheorem{thmx}{\protect\theoremname}
  \else
    \newtheorem{thmx}{\protect\theoremname}[chapter]
  \fi
  \newenvironment{thm}
    {\pushQED{\qed}\renewcommand{\qedsymbol}{$\circ$}\thmx}
    {\popQED\endthmx}

Each theorem-like environment is defines using \newtheorem{<env>x} which defines the auxiliary environment <env>x, together with the main environment <env> which calls <env>x with appropriate QED-symbol (or end mark).

Using the above definitions, your end marks look like this:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{amsthm}% http://ctan.org/pkg/amsthm
\usepackage{amssymb}% http://ctan.org/pkg/amssymb

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Textclass specific LaTeX commands.
\theoremstyle{definition}
\ifx\thechapter\undefined
  \newtheorem{examplex}{\protect\examplename}
\else
  \newtheorem{examplex}{\protect\examplename}[chapter]
\fi
\newenvironment{example}
  {\pushQED{\qed}\renewcommand{\qedsymbol}{$\triangle$}\examplex}
  {\popQED\endexamplex}
\theoremstyle{plain}
\ifx\thechapter\undefined
  \newtheorem{factx}{\protect\factname}
\else
  \newtheorem{factx}{\protect\factname}[chapter]
\fi
\newenvironment{fact}
  {\pushQED{\qed}\renewcommand{\qedsymbol}{$\blacksquare$}\factx}
  {\popQED\endfactx}
\theoremstyle{definition}
\ifx\thechapter\undefined
  \newtheorem{defnx}{\protect\definitionname}
\else
  \newtheorem{defnx}{\protect\definitionname}[chapter]
\fi
\newenvironment{defn}
  {\pushQED{\qed}\renewcommand{\qedsymbol}{$\Box$}\defnx}
  {\popQED\enddefnx}
\theoremstyle{plain}
\ifx\thechapter\undefined
  \newtheorem{thmx}{\protect\theoremname}
\else
  \newtheorem{thmx}{\protect\theoremname}[chapter]
\fi
\newenvironment{thm}
  {\pushQED{\qed}\renewcommand{\qedsymbol}{$\circ$}\thmx}
  {\popQED\endthmx}

\providecommand{\definitionname}{Definition}
\providecommand{\examplename}{Example}
\providecommand{\factname}{Fact}
\providecommand{\theoremname}{Theorem}

\begin{document}

\begin{example}Here is an example.\popQED\end{example}
\begin{fact}Here is a fact.\end{fact}
\begin{defn}Here is a definition.\end{defn}
\begin{thm}Here is a theorem.\end{thm}

\end{document}

Specific to LyX (2.0.4), set the document class to book:

enter image description here

followed by the inclusion of everything before \begin{document} in the LaTeX preamble:

enter image description here

Then, your LyX document:

enter image description here


On a completely different note: You need to clean up your LaTeX preamble... You're loading a number of packages more than once: fontenc, geometry, hyperref, ... This is just not necessary.

  • Thanks a lot for your helpful answer. Much appreciated. Thanks again. – MYaseen208 Jun 26 '12 at 5:42
  • Your given code works fine in LaTex but when I try this LyX I got error. Would you mind to elaborate your code for LyX too. Thanks – MYaseen208 Aug 9 '12 at 4:40
  • It gives me this error '\defn already defined latex error' in LyX – MYaseen208 Aug 9 '12 at 4:52
  • @MYaseen208: I've added some LyX images showing the input. If you have \defn already defined as an error, it must be from some other package that you're using. Perhaps just change the environment defn I defined to something like defntn so it is unique. – Werner Aug 9 '12 at 5:15
  • Thanks @Werner for your help. Much appreciated. Thanks again. – MYaseen208 Aug 9 '12 at 5:18
