Mathtools provides many useful tools for mathematical typesetting. It is based on amsmath and fixes various deficiencies of amsmath and standard . It provides:

  • Extensible symbols, such as brackets, arrows, harpoons, etc.;
  • Various symbols such as \coloneqq (:=);
  • Easy creation of new tag forms;
  • Showing equation numbers only for referenced equations;
  • Extensible arrows, harpoons and hookarrows;
  • Starred versions of the amsmath matrix environments for specifying the column alignment;
  • More building blocks: multlined, cases-like environments, new gathered environments;
  • Maths versions of \makebox, \llap, \rlap etc.;
  • Cramped math styles; and more...
