I'm writing large equations in texlive with amsmath, and I want them to be automatically broken at the end of the line. Is there any way to do that with amsmath?

What would you recommend me to do that?

Amsmath do not provide this functionality.

It is not easy to achieve automatic line breaking of equations. The breqn package tries to tackle this problem and generally does a good job.

+1 breqn. It's compatible with amsmath, so there's little to no barrier to trying it out. – Will Robertson Oct 17 '10 at 23:35
