README
The mathtools bundle ============= Morten Hoegholm (c) 2002-2011 Lars Madsen (c) 2012- email: daleif@math.au.dk License: LaTeX Project Public License The files in the mathtools bundle are: mhsetup.dtx mathtools.dtx empheq.dtx and derived files. The derived files of each .dtx-file are listed at the top of the respective .dtx-file. INSTALLATION ============ Running TeX on each dtx file extracts the runtime files. See the dtx files for details. DESCRIPTION =========== mathtools ========= The mathtools package 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 only the 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. -- Math versions of \makebox, \llap, \rlap etc. -- Cramped math styles. -- Macro generators. -- and more... mathtools requires mhsetup. empheq ====== The empheq package is a visual markup extension designed to function on top of amsmath. It features: -- Boxing multi line math displays while leaving equation numbers untouched at the margin. Any kind of box will do. -- Making the ntheorem package place end-of-theorem markers perfectly. -- Placing arbitrary material on either side of math displays. This includes delimiters that automatically scale to the correct size. empheq requires mathtools. mhsetup ======= The mhsetup package defines various programming tools needed by both empheq and mathtools. The syntax is the same as for expl3, but there is no code overlap (anymore as of May 2017). In the future, most of these tools will probably be an integral part of LaTeX3 (they were). BUG REPORTS =========== The bundle is maintained by: Morten H\o gholm Lars Madsen <daleif@math.au.dk> Please report bugs to daleif@math.au.dk =========== This README file was last revised 2017/05/24.

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...
Mathtools requires mhsetup.
