Appendix with amsart error: missing \endcsname inserted

Hi, I'm new to the forums. :) I'm trying to create an appendix with amsart , but the equation numbering will not reset properly. I found the appendix code on http://www.ams.org/publications/authors/faq/author-faq

If I comment out the two equation lines, the darn thing compiles. Does amsart use a different counter?

I'm running Gummi 0.6.1 on Ubuntu 12.04.

Here's a minimal working example:
Code: Select all  •  Open in online LaTeX editor
\documentclass{amsart}
\usepackage{amsthm, amsmath, amssymb, enumerate}

\begin{document
}

Testing
%%%%% Set up the Appendix %%%%%
\setcounter{section}{0}
%\setcounter{theorem}{0}
%\renewcommand{\thetheorem}{\thesection.\arabic{theorem}}
\setcounter{\equation}{0}
\renewcommand{\theequation}{\thesection.\arabic{equation}}
\setcounter{figure}{0}
\setcounter{table}{0}

\appendix
\section*{Appendix}
\renewcommand{\thesection}{A}

\subsection{Effective stress principle}

\end{document
}

Hi,

welcome to the forum!

To fix the error, use the counter name without a backslash, i.e. write

Code: Select all  •  Open in online LaTeX editor
\setcounter{equation}{0}
