## Subsection notation in LaTeX

So to write 'in section 2' I would say 'in \S 2'

for 'in subsection 4.2' would I then say 'in \S\S 4.2'?

or just 'in \S 4.2'?

Thanks

 Mentor You're much better off doing something like this so that you don't have to keep track of the numbering yourself: Code: \section Stuff \subsection additional stuff \label{sec:stuff} A whole bunch of text and possibly additional sections follow here. Now, referring back to \S \ref{sec:stuff}, we see that there is a great deal of stuff in it.
 Mentor Ah, but your question seems to be more about the *notation* used to indicate sections. To answer your question, I think you would use only ONE \S symbol, even for a subsection. Two symbols : \S\S is use to refer to *multiple* sections. E.g. You might say something like: \S\S 4.2-4.6. It's the equivalent of writing p. 46 to indicate a particular page and pp.46-63 to indicate a range of pages.

Makes perfect sense, thank you.
