amstex – American Mathematical Society plain TeX macros
AMSTeX is a TeX macro package, originally written by Michael
Spivak for the American Mathematical Society (AMS) during
1983–1985 and is described in the book ‘The Joy of
TeX’. It is based on Plain TeX, and provides many
features for producing more professional-looking maths formulas
with less burden on authors.
More recently, the focus of attention has switched to amslatex, but AMSTeX remains as a working system.
