I'm using amsbook to write my thesis, while it's required to put some information in the bottom in the title page.

Here is my direct trial:

\documentclass[12pt, final]{amsbook} 
\usepackage[margin=1.0in]{geometry}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}

\frontmatter

\title{T}
\author{\large \textbf{by\\Oslo}\\
    \vfill
    Some Info.
    }
\date{}

\maketitle

\end{document}

It then looks like:

enter image description here

The "Info" is quite far from the bottom. Hence I would like to ask how I can put the text to the bottom.

  • Since you are adding your info in the \author field, you could change the \vfill to an explicit \vspace{...}, specifying a dimension value that will move the info down to the desired position. This is, admittedly, a hack, but I am assuming that the author data won't be used automatically for anything else. (At the AMS, the \author{...} isn't used for anything else, and this title page is used solely for identifying the file that is in production. Other users may have different ideas.) – barbara beeton Sep 16 '19 at 15:03

Hope you are looking for title page footnote, please refer the below tags:

\documentclass[12pt, final]{amsbook} 
\usepackage[margin=1.0in]{geometry}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}

\let\thefootnote\relax

\title{T\footnotetext{This is footer of the opening page}}
\author{\large \textbf{by\\Oslo}}

\end{document}

  • Thanks! It's very close to what I want, but is it possible to take the line segment off? And not that left and bottom, e.g. move it 0.5inch up and right? – Salomo Sep 13 '19 at 12:06
  • It's possible with some manual work, \title{T\footnotetext{This is footer of the opening page\vspace*{6pc}}} will help you to move the text up or down... – MadyYuvi Sep 13 '19 at 12:09
  • Thanks! But I still hope that I can move it a bit to the left and make it without the line segment. – Salomo Sep 14 '19 at 5:49
  • Do you mean to remove the rule above the footnote? – MadyYuvi Sep 14 '19 at 6:09
  • Yes! Is it easy to get rid of this? – Salomo Sep 14 '19 at 10:45
