The mathtools bundle

The files in the mathtools bundle are:
and derived files. The derived files of each .dtx-file are listed
at the top of the respective .dtx-file.

Running TeX on each dtx file extracts the runtime files. See the dtx
files for details.



The mathtools package provides many useful tools for mathematical
typesetting. It is based on amsmath and fixes various deficiencies
of amsmath and standard LaTeX. It provides:
  -- Extensible symbols, such as brackets, arrows, harpoons, etc.
  -- Various symbols such as \coloneqq (:=).
  -- Easy creation of new tag forms.
  -- Showing only the referenced equations.
  -- Extensible arrows, harpoons and hookarrows.
  -- Starred versions of the amsmath matrix environments for
     specifying the column alignment.
  -- More building blocks: multlined, cases-like environments, new
     gathered environments.
  -- Math versions of \makebox, \llap, \rlap etc.
  -- Cramped math styles.
  -- Macro generators.
  -- and more...

mathtools requires mhsetup.


The empheq package is a visual markup extension designed to
function on top of amsmath. It features:
  -- Boxing multi line math displays while leaving equation
     numbers untouched at the margin. Any kind of box will do.
  -- Making the ntheorem package place end-of-theorem markers
  -- Placing arbitrary material on either side of math displays.
     This includes delimiters that automatically scale to the
     correct size.

empheq requires mathtools.


The mhsetup package defines various programming tools needed by
both empheq and mathtools. The syntax is the same as for expl3, 
but there is no code overlap (anymore as of May 2017).
In the future, most of these tools will probably be an integral part of LaTeX3 (they were).
