It is indeed a lucky author who is given the opportunity to completely rewrite a book barely a year after its publication. Writing about software affords such op­ portunities (especially if the original edition sold out), since the author is shooting at a moving target. u\TEX and AMS-u\TEX improved dramatically with the release of the new stan­ dard IbTEX (called u\TEX2 ) in June of1994 and the revision of AMS-u\TEX (ver­ f sion 1.2) in February ofl995. The change in AMS-u\TEX is profound. u\TEX2 f made it possible for AMS-IbTEX to join the u\TEX world. One of the main points of the present book is to make this clear. This book introduces u\TEX as a tool for mathematical typesetting, and treats AMS-u\TEX as a set of enhancements to the standard u\TEX, to be used in conjunction with hundreds of other u\TEX 2f enhancements. I am not a TEX expert. Learning the mysteries of the system has given me great respect for those who crafted it: Donald Knuth, Leslie Lamport, Michael Spivak, and others did the original work; David Carlisle, Michael J. Downes, David M. Jones, Frank Mittelbach, Rainer Schopf, and many others built on the work of these pioneers to create the new u\TEX and AMS-LATEX.
