### 8.1. Introduction to AMS-LaTeX

Entire Site

The AMS-LaTeX project commenced in 1987 and three years later AMS-LaTeX version 1.0 was released. This was the original conversion to LaTeX of the mathematical capabilities in Michael Spivak’s AMS-TeX by Frank Mittelbach and Rainer Schöpf, working as consultants to the American Mathematical Society, with assistance from Michael Downes of the AMS technical staff. In 1994, further work was done with David Jones. This work was coordinated by Michael Downes and the packages have throughout been supported and much enhanced under his direction and the patronage of the AMS.^{1}
