I use the book document style and load the AMS packages, in particular, amsthm. Therefore,
theorems with names, e.g.

Theorem 5 (Fundamental theorem of AbelianGroups).

is typeset with 

Theorem 5

and the period in bold, 

(Fundamental Theorem of AbelianGroups)

not. Of course, it is easy to make 

Fundamental Theorem of AbelianGroups

bold, but I would need the parenthesis bold also.

The amslatex distribution has a file called testmath.pdf in 


On p.6 of this file there are two theorems with everything in bold. Unfortunately, there
is no source provided or explanation given.

Does anybody know the trick?
