Authors may choose and retrieve an author package for any of the following types of publications:
Editors of Collections or proceedings volumes: Use the AMS Editor's Package to help prepare front and end matter in a standard format and deliver the material to the AMS.
The author package for each publication contains:
a README file (read this first)
the AMS Author Handbook (available separately as a PDF file)
an Instructions manual (available separately as a PDF file for AMS-LaTeX or AMS-TeX)

NOTE: If you are installing both LaTeX and AMS-TeX packages, install them in separate directories. They may contain identical filenames which will overwrite one another if they are in the same directory.
