I. OVERVIEW
The amsmath package is an extension package for LaTeX 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 LaTeX3 Project; as amsmath is considered a "required" package, this
centralizes control over the core LaTeX components.
========================================================================
II. INSTALLATION AND GETTING STARTED
In order to use amsmath you need to have TeX installed first.
For information on getting TeX see one of the following:
http://www.tug.org/
http://www.ams.org/tex/tex-resources
It is recommended to install a comprehensive distribution, such as
TeX Live, MiKTeX for Windows, or MacTeX for Macintosh.
As part of the "required" LaTeX 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 "TeXdoc Online" at http://texdoc.net .
========================================================================
III. SUBMITTING BUG REPORTS
Bug reports should be submitted using the standard LaTeX bug reporting
system:
See the form at
http://www.latex-project.org/bugs/
and follow the resulting instructions. Select "amslatex" when asked
for a category.
Questions regarding usage can be posted at http://tex.stackexchange.com .
Check first to see whether your question has already been answered.
