\tag{eqname}

Filed under: LaTeX, Tech — Chris @ 11:22 pm

So you want to give an equation a name in LaTeX, instead of the number it gets automatically… For some reason, Google will resist telling you how. You may be tempted to use the `eqname` package. No need! No need at all! Use the `\tag` command. Why isn’t this easier to figure out?

UPDATE: I apologize to the writers of the `amsmath` documentation, who mention this pretty much immediately after they introduce the concept of equation numbering. I always assume that Google can find these things for me.
