I have a code like \begin{aligned}{\emph{Culling}} \forall x(\Sigma(x)\leftrightarrow & \Pi \wedge\\ & \forall m,n((m, y)\})\end{aligned}, and amsmath & amsthm are among the packages.

The name appears in italic as Culling on the left hand side, and indented.

How may I get the name in standard font, flushed to the right in the first line? (Or, perhaps even better, flushed to the right in a line intermediate between the two lines in the body text.)


With reference to the suggestion by Anton Mn, here is an mwe which shows the insufficiency insufficiency with the proposal:

\usepackage{amsmath, enumitem}
        \item $\forall y(\textnormal{Formula 1})$\null\hfill P 
    \item $\begin{aligned}{\emph{Name 0}}
        \forall x(\textnormal{Formula 2} &   \forall n(\textnormal{Formula 3}\\ &   \forall m,n(\textnormal{Formula 4})\end{aligned}$
    \item For $\alpha(y,z)$ a first order condition so that \ldots \null\hfill Name 1
    \item \[ 
        \forall x(\Sigma(x)\leftrightarrow &   \Pi  \wedge \\&   \forall m,n((m, y)\})
    \tag{Name 2}

I think what you want is this:

   \forall x(\Sigma(x)\leftrightarrow &   \Pi  \wedge \\&   \forall m,n((m, y)\})

  • Many thanks. In the enumeration environment, I have the indicator, g, appears leftmost, but half a line above your top line. So there is an ugly imbalance when I use your solution as an enumeration item. Is there a simple way to resolve that? Sep 24, 2021 at 21:13
  • @Sapiens: You can try: \item $\begin{aligned}[t]\forall x(\textnormal{Formula 2} & \forall n(\textnormal{Formula 3}\\ & \forall m,n(\textnormal{Formula 4})\end{aligned}$\hfill\emph{Name 0}. I don't think it looks very good though. Neither do I find it esthetically pleasing if Name 0 appeared in between the lines. But it's your call.

  • I agree with your aesthetical judgement, so I obtained a solution with g and Culling aligned with the top line; some of the information for that is in my Update. Sep 26, 2021 at 3:33
  • The solution was based on the accepted for this question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/616643/… Sep 26, 2021 at 3:36

\begin{aligned} \forall x(\Sigma(x)\leftrightarrow &   \Pi  \wedge\\ &   \forall m,n((m, y)\})\end{aligned}\text{Constant}\label{eq:a}

\begin{aligned} \forall x(\Sigma(x)\leftrightarrow &   \Pi  \wedge\\ &   \forall m,n((m, y)\})\end{aligned} &\qquad &\text{(Constant)}

  • I got: Package amsmath Error: \begin{flalign} allowed only in paragraph mode. \item$\begin{flalign}, when I tried your solution as an item in my enumeration environment. Why? Sep 24, 2021 at 21:20
  • please show soure somehow Sep 24, 2021 at 21:28
  • Can I place a mwe as an update to your question? Sep 24, 2021 at 21:34
