breqn – Automatic line breaking of displayed equations
The package provides solutions to a number of common difficulties
in writing displayed equations and getting high-quality output.
For example, it is a well-known inconvenience that if an equation
must be broken into more than one line,
‘left...right’ constructs cannot span lines. The
breqn package makes them work as one would expect whether or not
there is an intervening line break.
The single most ambitious goal of the breqn package, however, is to support automatic linebreaking of displayed equations. Such linebreaking cannot be done without substantial changes under the hood in the way formulae are processed; the code must be watched carefully, keeping an eye on possible glitches.
The package is (now) maintained as part of the mh bundle of mathematical typesetting support packages; the bundle also contains the flexisym and mathstyle packages, which are both designated as support for breqn.
