The follow appears to produce the desired result in my book MS:

\begin{theorem}[Universal Scalability Law]
The universal scalability law (\ref{eqn:urepman}) is equivalent to the 
synchronous bound on the relative throughput (speedup) of a 
load-dependent machine-repairman queueing model with a 
service time that is a linear function of the $p$ active processors.

The only proviso is that I'm using Springer's book style, so I can't guarantee
