    If I call

      texdoc amslatex

    I get the pdf file "amshelp.pdf". A better choice would be "amsldoc.pdf".

minority opinion here ...
although amshelp.pdf wasn't created at
ams, and also isn't up to date, it does
try to explicate ams-latex as a whole.
ams-latex is not *only* amsmath; it also
comprises several document classes,
amsthm, and amsrefs.  amshelp.pdf tries
to cover the whole lot, and contains
references to the individual manuals
for the components.

i'm inclined to think that amshelp.pdf
really is the more appropriate target
for amslatex.

i'm looking over amshelp, and intend
to make suggestions to the author for
bringing it up to date.
