I am writing a document with \documentclass{amsart}. How do you change the appearance of the title in a document like this? It is set to all caps, bold, and a certain size. I can change it to italics with \textit{}, but I can't do anything else. I want to change the title to Large roman text. It seems like \renewcommand{\title} would work, but I don't know how to use this command. Thanks for your help!

You can redefine \@settitle and introduce your font modifications there; a little example suppressing the bold-faced font and using \LARGE:


    \normalfont\LARGE%<- NEW
\title{This is an interesting title}

I should have mentioned that I wanted it to be with no capitalization. This was easy to fix, though; I just deleted \uppercasenonmath\@title. Thanks! – Randy Randerson Aug 2 '13 at 23:06
@fctaylor25 of course, you can do any adjustments that you require. You're welcome! – Gonzalo Medina Aug 2 '13 at 23:07
