INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARATION OF PAPERS AND MONOGRAPHS: A M S -L A T E X Version 2.20: August 2004 1. Introduction This manual is directed mainly to authors preparing material for publication by the AMS, using A M S -L A T E X document classes. As such, it deals with the AMS publishing style. Since these document classes are also used by authors who are not submitting items to the AMS, the manual also covers topics of more general relevance.

Links to information useful in preparing manuscripts and graphics can be found on the AMS Author Resource Center web page [ARC]. That information supple- ments this manual, and we recommend that you review it.

If the specific publication is known, the appropriate author package should be obtained from the AMS web server [AP] and used for preparation of manuscripts. In addition, there is a separate package for editors of proceedings volumes [EP], with facilities for preparing material that does not fit into the normal “article” category. If the specific publication is not known, an appropriate generic AMS document class can be used: gen-j-l for journal articles (based on amsart ) gen-p-l for articles in book proceedings (based on amsproc ) gen-m-l for monographs (based on amsbook ) The tagging of elements in a manuscript—title, author(s), section headings, theo- rems, etc.— is consistent through all author packages. Thus a manuscript prepared using the appropriate generic document class can be modified trivially to use the
