I'd like to add a figure below the title of the part on the part page. How does one go about doing so using the amsbook class?



\part{Part Title (Figure Below)}

Using the definition from the amsbook class, you can insert an image in the following way:

\usepackage[demo]{graphicx} % remove the demo for actual use
% define a user command to choose the image
% this command also creates an internal command to insert the image
% redefine the amsbook part code to include the \@partimage insertion command
  \ifnum \c@secnumdepth >-2\relax \refstepcounter{part}%
    \addcontentsline{toc}{part}{\partname\ \thepart.
  \ifnum \c@secnumdepth >-2\relax
         \partname\ \thepart} \vskip 20\p@ \fi
      #1\vfil\@partimage\vfil\endgroup \newpage\thispagestyle{empty}}

\partimage{myimage} % \partimage behaves just like \includegraphics (same arguments)
\part{Part Title (Figure Below)}   


To add a different image for each part, issue a new \partimage{} command before each \part{} command.
