By default the amsart class puts authors' contact details (addresses and emails) at the end of the document. The package amsaddr can be used to show these details on the first page, as shown here, but it seems to affect the header as well: by default, amsart has the names of author(s) on even pages and the title on odd pages, but once amsaddr is loaded, the title appears on all pages. Is there a way to prevent amsaddr doing this?


MWE to demonstrate:

\documentclass{amsart}
\usepackage[foot]{amsaddr}

\title{Title}
\author{Me}
\address{Somewhere over the rainbow}
\email{me@wayupuhigh.com}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

First page.
\newpage
Second page.
\newpage
Third page.

\end{document}

(Note that the header on page 2 says "Title" instead of "Me". This happens regardless of whether the foot option is present.)

The amsaddr package does

\@mkboth{\@nx\shortauthors}{\@nx\shorttitle}

and so if you don't specify the \shortauthors, the first argument would be empty and amsart substitutes it with \shorttitle.

A simple solution is to use the optional argument to \author:

\documentclass{amsart}
\usepackage[foot]{amsaddr}

\title{Title}
\author[Me]{Me}
\address{Somewhere over the rainbow}
\email{me@wayupuhigh.com}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

First page.
\newpage
Second page.
\newpage
Third page.

\end{document}
