# To have abstract in the document class revtex?

I had to change my document class to revtex4-1 to be able to have \widetext parameter for one of my equation, discussion about implementation. However, the abstract \begin{abstract}...\end{abstract} is not supported by this class.

My minimal code

\documentclass[twocolumn]{revtex4-1} \begin{document} \title{Hello world} \maketitle  \begin{abstract} % abstract The maximal \end{abstract}  \end{document} 


I get the errors

./article.tex:84: LaTeX Error: Environment abstract undefined.  See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation. Type  H <return>  for immediate help.  ...                                                l.6 \begin{abstract}                       % abstract  ./article.tex:8: LaTeX Error: \begin{document} ended by \end{abstract}.  See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation. Type  H <return>  for immediate help.  ...                                                l.8 \end{abstract} 


How can you have abstract in revtex4-1? or How can you have widetext in article document class?

## Answers

revtex4-1 loads, amongst other packages, ltxfront to set up the front matter of the document. The following is taken from the Author's guide for revtex4-1 (section IV.4. The abstract, p 7; part of section IV. The Front Matter):

IV.4. The abstract

An abstract for a paper is specified by using the abstract environment:

\begin{abstract}
Text of abstract
\end{abstract}



Note that in REVTeX 4.1 the abstract must be specified before the \maketitle command and there is no need to embed it in an explicit minipage environment.

So, use

\documentclass[twocolumn]{revtex4-1}% http://ctan.org/pkg/revtex4-1
\begin{document}
\title{Hello world}

\begin{abstract} % abstract
The maximal
\end{abstract}

\maketitle

\end{document}



It becomes apparent that abstract doesn't exist after a call to \maketitle when viewing the definition of \[email protected]/* <![CDATA[ */!function(t,e,r,n,c,a,p){try{t=document.currentScript||function(){for(t=document.getElementsByTagName('script'),e=t.length;e--;)if(t[e].getAttribute('data-cfhash'))return t[e]}();if(t&&(c=t.previousSibling)){p=t.parentNode;if(a=c.getAttribute('data-cfemail')){for(e='',r='0x'+a.substr(0,2)|0,n=2;a.length-n;n+=2)e+='%'+('0'+('0x'+a.substr(n,2)^r).toString(16)).slice(-2);p.replaceChild(document.createTextNode(decodeURIComponent(e)),c)}p.removeChild(t)}}catch(u){}}()/* ]]> */ in ltxfront.dtx:
