# amslatex-primer – Getting up and running with AMS-LaTeX

The document aims to get you up and running with AMS-LaTeX as
quickly as possible. These instructions (along with a template
file `template.tex`) are not a substitute for the full
documentation, but they may get you started quickly enough so that
you will only need to refer to the main documentation occasionally.

In addition to ‘AMS-LaTeX out of the box’, the document contains:

- a section describing how to draw commutative diagrams using Xy-pic; and
- a section describing how to use amsrefs to create a bibliography.
