My tags are follows:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

\begin{align}
a+b&=c\\
d+e&=f
\end{align}

\end{document}

In this, I need to fix the space between two equations should be as 20pts base to base. Is this possible to fix throughout? Please advise...

You could use \\[2ex] or \\[4ex] etc... Or if you would like to set a specific part of the document (as shown with the second equation). Another approach would be to uncomment line 3 and you will have the space to change throughout all the document.

Output

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{amsmath}
%\setlength{\jot}{4ex}  % Uncomment if you want 
                        % the spacing to change 
                        % throughout all the document.
\begin{document}

Normal \verb|\jot|:
\begin{align}
a+b&=c\\
d+e&=f
\end{align}


Tampered \verb|\jot| for a specific part:
{\setlength{\jot}{4ex}% Need this!
\begin{align}
a+b&=c\\
d+e&=f
\end{align}
}

Normal \verb|\jot|:
\begin{align}
a+b&=c\\
d+e&=f
\end{align}
\end{document}

  • Is it possible to get a fixed space by auto without giving the value [4ex] etc.?
