The command "\label{...}" is used to store the number of some textual unit
such as a chapter or section or (numbered) theorem or equation ....., which
can be later retrieved by "\ref{...}" (or "\pageref{...}" for page
number) for cross-reference.

Please have a look at Section 4.2 of Lamport's book or Chapter 12 of our
online tutorial for further details.
