8.2. Display and alignment structures for equations

The amsmath package defines several environments for creating displayed mathematics. These cover single- and multiple-line displays with single or multiple alignment points and various options for numbering equations within displays.

Throughout this section the term “equation” will be used in a very particular way: to refer to a logical distinct part of a mathematical display that is frequently numbered for reference purposes and is also labeled (commonly by its number in parentheses). Such labels are often called tags.

The complete list of all the display environments you will need for mathematical typesetting is given in Table 8.1 on the next page; the majority of these environments are covered in this section, along with examples of their use. Where appropriate they have starred forms in which there is no numbering or tagging of the equations.
