Is it possible to remove the running head and page-numbering in an amsart document? I am submitting a document where there are not too many requirements, and I like how amsart looks like, but I need to get rid of the headers.

in the preamble.

Or \pagestyle{empty} since apparently there should be no numbering either. – Gonzalo Medina May 8 '11 at 23:20
@Gonzalo empty was perfect - thanks! – Aniko May 8 '11 at 23:33
@Aniko: any document that has more than two pages should have page numbers. – egreg May 8 '11 at 23:35
With amsart, you'll need to say \thispagestyle{empty} on the first page, in addition to saying \pagestyle{empty} to deal with all pages after the first. – Phil Hirschhorn May 9 '11 at 3:33
Agreed. This is an article for a "proceedings"-type collection, and the overall page numbering will be added later, I assume in the (large) margins we are supposed to leave. The final result will probably be a hodge-podge of different styles, but I am just following instructions. – Aniko May 9 '11 at 12:45

I've found that to get no headings and no page numbers I need


in the preamble, and


in the document test after \maketitle
