ADDITIONAL FILES REQUIRED BY THIS PACKAGE
AASTeX requires the natbib package, which is not included in this distribution. The package is available in the distribution on the AASTeX Web site at http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/AAS/AASTeX and from CTAN (http://www.ctan.org/).
Please see the AASTeX Web site for further documentation
for additional installation notes or contact the help desk at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
AASTeX was designed and written by Chris Biemesderfer in 1988. Substantial revisions were made by Lee Brotzman and Pierre Landau when the package was updated to v4.0. AASTeX was rewritten as a LaTeX class by Arthur Ogawa for the v5.0 release. It was updated to v5.2 by SR Nova Private Ltd. Amy Hendrickson (TeXnology Inc.) wrote the v6.0 release which itself was primarily based on the emulateapj classfile created by Maxim Markevitch and Alexey Vikhlinin. Over the years the documentation has benefited from revisions by Jeannette Barnes, Sara Zimmerman, Greg Schwarz, Gus Meunch, Amy Henderickson, and Butler Burton.
Comments, suggestions, complaints, and pleas for help can be sent electronically to email@example.com.
