I'm writing a paper using the aomart package/class. Since this package was written specifically for papers submitted to the Annals of Mathematics, it has an automatic header.

Since I don't actually plan on submitting this paper to the Annals, I would like to remove this header, since it's useless in my case.

This is a MWE which produces the "problem":




enter image description here

I would like to get rid of this header entirely.


After looking through the aomart.cls file, I found which lines to add to the preamble. This preamble should look like


\makeatletter % https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/8351/134574

    The 13th line says Any modified versions of this file must be renamed with new filenames distinct from aomart.cls. Per the LPPL license you can't modify a file without changing its name. Please, instead show only the modified parts as redefinitions or patches and then remove the class file from your answer. – Phelype Oleinik Apr 10 '19 at 11:16
  • @PhelypeOleinik Good call, I just did. – Peiffap Apr 10 '19 at 11:21

    Thanks :-) If you allow me to nitpick on your answer, I'd suggest you to copy the entire \fancypagestyle{firstpage}{...} to your document and change the \chead in there instead of directly changing the class file (which shouldn't be done, ever), like this. This is a better approach because: 1. Your answer will be easier for a novice to just copy/paste instead of trying to figure out how to change the class file and 2. It won't depend on line numbers (my version doesn't match those numbers, for example). – Phelype Oleinik Apr 10 '19 at 11:32
