anyway, in my preamble i have:

\newtheorem{lemma}{Lemma}

\newtheorem{theorem}[lemma]{Theorem}

\newtheorem{corollary}[lemma]{Corollary}

\theoremstyle{definition}

\newtheorem{definition}[lemma]{Definition}

\theoremstyle{remark}

\newtheorem{remark}[lemma]{Remark}

\newtheorem{example}[lemma]{Example}

and i have been using the definition environment of this and it's working fine except for the numbering. for example in section 1.1 of my document i have definition 1, definition 2 and definition 3. then i go to section 1.2 and get definition 4. this is going to be a long project so by the time i finish i'll be getting things like definition 80!

i think it would look more professional (tell me if you disagree though!) if i could get the definitions in section 1.1 to be definition 1.1.1, definition 1.1.2 and deifnition 1.1.3 and then in section 1.2 have definition 1.2.1

does anybody know how to do this?

all help appreciated

thanks
