Lecturer in applied mathematics, with a rough idea of how to use (La)TeX. Specialities include dirty hacks and using texdoc very quickly.

@jon --- I'm not qualified either! I just happened to remember that someone who is qualified had effectively answered this elsewhere (though this question is not a duplicate of the one I'm linking to).

I think this answer contains the information you need. Best of luck trying to understand the LaTeX kernel code!

comment Why can't I prevent page break?
@Sammy --- I have edited my answer. \usepackage{amsmath} is part of the preamble. With this included, amsmath environments such as align, gather, multline, etc. are available anywhere in your document. The equation* environment is redefined by amsmath, so \begin{equation*} does indeed invoke amsmath code.

@Sammy --- what LaTeX beginners' guides recommend the use of double dollar signs?

comment Why can't I prevent page break?
I meant complicated from the typesetting point of view. Three equations that must not span a page break is a simple example, but as you try to do more with LaTeX you will probably encounter more elaborate cases. All standard distributions include amsmath.

Works for me too. Try deleting all the generated files (aux, mp, etc.) and starting the process again.
