Why not eqnarray?


There are just too many old LaTeX tutorial out there that suggest using eqnarray, so learners just stick to eqnarray (eqnarray*) instead of align (align*) provided by AMSMath package. This article provides detailed explanation to why one should avoid eqnarray.

AMSMath package do provide a lot of environments that should be good enough for average use. Skim through ftp://ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsmath/amsldoc.pdf to get an idea of what it can do.

    personally, I think align* more convenience to use =)

    But if you are a beginner to LaTeX and you find pages suggesting eqnarray, then you’d probably stick to that…
