amstex – American Mathematical Society plain macros

AMS- is a 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 . It is based on Plain , and provides many features for producing more professional-looking maths formulas with less burden on authors.

This is the final archival distribution of AMS-. AMS- is no longer supported by the AMS, nor is it used by the AMS publishing program. The AMS does not recommend creating any new documents using AMS-; this distribution will be left on CTAN to facilitate processing of legacy documents and as a historical record of a pioneering macro collection that played a key role in popularizing and revolutionizing mathematics publishing.

In addition to the “User’s Guide to AMS-, the AMS has also made the full text of the most recent reprint of the second edition of “The Joy of by Michael Spivak available as a pdf file.

AMS- is the historical basis of amslatex, which should now be used to prepare submissions for the AMS.
