I need to write a short informal note-type document with a description of my new idea and a few equations - 2 pages max. I use the article document class, but it seems to be an overkill - the title and author take 1/3 of the first page, etc. Could someone recommend a more suitable document type?

Remove \maketitle and do it yourself! –  Seamus Jun 14 '11 at 16:39

Along the same lines, I started from this question on stackoverflow to make a modified article class for one of the labs here. It includes a redefinition of \maketitle, and can be modified for your specific needs. –  Mike Renfro Jun 14 '11 at 16:48

Try amsart or define the title yourself:

\begin{document}
\begin{center}
\large Title of this document

\normalsize A. U. Thor
\end{center}

\vspace{3\baselineskip}

Here starts the text.
