The document classes amsart, amsbook, amsproc and related packages are provided by the American Mathematical Society for authors to use with LaTeX. They produce the overall layout and appearance of AMS publications. In order to use an AMS document class you need to have TeX software installed first. TeX is not an AMS product. If you need information on getting TeX see one of the following: http://www.tug.org/ https://www.ams.org/tex/tex-resources.html User documentation for the AMS document classes is contained in the class-specific AMS Author Handbook, found at these locations: https://www.ams.org/tex/author-handbook (individual handbooks) http://mirror.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/amscls-doc.zip (full source) Additional documentation for the AMS document classes and the related theorem package is found in diffs-c.txt amsthdoc.pdf thmtest.tex thmtest.pdf which are included in the collection. Answers to some specific questions can be found in the AMS Author FAQ: https://www.ams.org/tex/amsclass-faq.html The recommended procedure for making a custom document class based on an AMS class is to make a copy of the relevant .cls file using a different name and edit the copy---e.g., copy amsbook.cls to mybook.cls. (In general we advise against using \LoadClass, unless the base class is frozen or changes to the base class are under your control.) ======================================================================== RECENT CHANGES ---amsclass.dtx 2.20.4 2017/10/31 Changed \emailaddrname: replaced "E-mail" by "Email" ---amsclass.dtx 2.20.3 2017/10/06 Don't assume amsfonts is available when providing a fallback definition of \dh; instead, issue a warning and substitute "dh". ---documentation files 2017/11/15 instr-l.* removed; superseded by (class-specific) AMS Author Handbooks at https://www.ams.org/tex/author-handbook or http://mirror.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/amscls-doc.zip ======================================================================== PREVIOUS CHANGES ---amsthdoc.tex 2.20.2 2015/04/10 Completely rewritten, adding examples, workarounds, and notes on interaction with other packages and document classes. ---amsclass.dtx 2.20.2 2015/03/10 Patched definition of \[ for compatibility with the fixltx2e package and post-2014 versions of the LaTeX kernel.

## amscls – AMS document classes for LaTeX

This bundle contains three AMS classes, amsart (for writing articles for the AMS), amsbook (for books) and amsproc (for proceedings), together with some supporting material.

This material forms one branch of what was originally the AMS-LaTeX distribution. The other branch, amsmath, is now maintained and distributed separately.

The user documentation can be found in the package amscls-doc.
