README for la­tex-ams­math bun­dle


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 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 to the 3 Project; as ams­math is con­sid­ered a "re­quired" pack­age, this cen­tral­izes con­trol over the core com­po­nents.


In or­der to use ams­math you need to have in­stalled first. For in­for­ma­tion on get­ting see one of the fol­low­ing:

It is rec­om­mended to in­stall a com­pre­hen­sive dis­tri­bu­tion, such as Live, MiK for Win­dows, or Mac for Mac­in­tosh. As part of the "re­quired" pack­age sub­set, ams­math will al­ready be avail­able if one of these dis­tri­bu­tions is cho­sen.

If you are in­stalling ams­math man­u­ally, the most re­cent ver­sion will be avail­able from the CTAN archives https://www.ctan.org/pkg/ams­math

The pri­mary doc­u­men­ta­tion for ams­math is in

  • 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.


Ver­sion 2.17

Fixes a bug in the spac­ing around the clos­ing de­lim­iter in gen­er­alised frac­tions in xe­tex and lu­a­tex ver­sion added in re­lease 2.16. Fixes a bug that over­full lines did not al­ways pro­duce warn­ings.


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

The file diffs-m.txt con­tains in­for­ma­tion on de­vel­op­ment and changes prior to 2000.

Re­port­ing Bugs

If you wish to re­port a prob­lem or bug in any of these pack­ages please use the Is­sue Tracker for on GitHub and fol­low the guide­lines that pop up if you press the New issue but­ton.

In par­tic­u­lar, to check that you are re­ally see­ing a bug, please write a short, self-con­tained doc­u­ment that shows the prob­lem. This should in­clude the latexbug pack­age, which will warn if your test file is not suit­able for one or the other rea­son. See the CONTRIBUTING guide for fur­ther de­tails, or if you need to ob­tain the latexbug pack­age.

If the bug turns out to be with third-party soft­ware then please con­tact the de­vel­oper, and not us!

ams­math – AMS math­e­mat­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties for

The prin­ci­pal pack­age in the AMS- dis­tri­bu­tion. It adapts for use in most of the math­e­mat­i­cal fea­tures found in AMS-; it is highly rec­om­mended as an ad­junct to se­ri­ous math­e­mat­i­cal type­set­ting in .

When ams­math is loaded, AMS- pack­ages ams­bsy (for bold sym­bols), am­sopn (for op­er­a­tor names) and am­s­text (for text em­bed­ded in math­e­mat­ics) are also loaded.

ams­math is part of the re­quired dis­tri­bu­tion; how­ever, sev­eral con­tributed pack­ages add still fur­ther to its ap­peal; ex­am­ples are em­pheq, which pro­vides func­tions for dec­o­rat­ing and high­light­ing math­e­mat­ics, and nthe­o­rem, for spec­i­fy­ing the­o­rem (and sim­i­lar) def­i­ni­tions.
