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.
