Release 2021-05-01 pre-release 0


The amsmath package is an extension package for that provides additional features to facilitate mathematical typesetting. It has been developed by the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and released for general use as a service to the mathematical community. A number of smaller auxiliary packages are also distributed with the amsmath package.

Effective in 2016, maintenance of amsmath was transferred from AMS tothe Project; as amsmath is considered a "required" package, this centralizes control over the core components.


We no longer distribute installation instructions for the various implementations. All modern systems include amsmath as-standard, and end users should in general use the release versions supplied in this way.

Release distribution is carried out only through the CTAN archives.


The primary documentation for amsmath is in provided as amsldoc.pdf.

Additional documentation files include:

  • diffs-m.txt
  • subeqn.pdf
  • technote.pdf
  • testmath.pdf

which are included in the collection. All of these can be accessed easily with most distributions by entering texdoc filename at the command line, or via doc Online.

The file changes.txt lists recent changes in reverse chronological order.
