What Christian wants (I believe) is for Equations to be labeled as (1), (2),
..., and within the same section in which they are first displayed, they
would be referred to as Equation (1), etc. When referring to Equations in a
different section, but in the same chapter, it would display Equation (1.2)
for the second equation in the first section. When referring to equations in
a different chapter, it would display Equation (1.2.3) for the third
equation in the second section of the first chapter.
Although I'm out of my league here, I envision a solution wherein you
redefine the \theequation command, and use the ifthen package to exame the
\section and \chapter of the current location, compare with the location of
the equation, and display different results accordingly. Something like:
\def\theequation {%
\ifthenelse{ \equal{\chapter}{\Eq_chapter} }% If same chapter
{\ifthenelse{ \equal{\section}{\Eq_section} }% and same section
{\equation}% print just the number.
{\Eq_section.\equation}% If different section, print section number as
well
}% If different chapter, print the chapter and section numbers
{\Eq_chapter.\Eq_section.\equation} }
Hopefully I closed all my brackets. The only thing that you're missing now
is how to figure out in what chapter/section an equation begins (I made up
the commands \Eq_chapter and \Eq_section). Hopefully someone else can post
that information.
Cheers,
Bob Wilson
