mathtools – Mathematical tools to use with amsmath

Math­tools pro­vides a se­ries of pack­ages de­signed to en­hance the ap­pear­ance of doc­u­ments con­tain­ing a lot of math­e­mat­ics. The main back­bone is ams­math, so those un­fa­mil­iar with this re­quired part of the LaTeX sys­tem will prob­a­bly not find the pack­ages very use­ful.

Math­tools pro­vides many use­ful tools for math­e­mat­i­cal type­set­ting. It is based on ams­math and fixes var­i­ous de­fi­cien­cies of ams­math and stan­dard LaTeX. It pro­vides:

  • Ex­ten­si­ble sym­bols, such as brack­ets, ar­rows, har­poons, etc.;
  • Var­i­ous sym­bols such as \coloneqq (:=);
  • Easy cre­ation of new tag forms;
  • Show­ing equa­tion num­bers only for ref­er­enced equa­tions;
  • Ex­ten­si­ble ar­rows, har­poons and hookar­rows;
  • Starred ver­sions of the ams­math ma­trix en­vi­ron­ments for spec­i­fy­ing the col­umn align­ment;
  • More build­ing blocks: mult­lined, cases-like en­vi­ron­ments, new gath­ered en­vi­ron­ments;
  • Maths ver­sions of \make­box, \llap, \rlap etc.;
  • Cramped math styles; and more...
