I tried to run following code in texmaker,

\begin{equation} \label{eq4}  
\begin{split}  
&R^T \left( \underbar r_{H/G} \times \underline f_H + \underline r_{R/G} \times \underline f_R + \underline \tau_R \right) \\  
 &= I_G \underline \alpha + \underline \omega \times \left( I_G \underline \omega \right)  
\end{split}  
\end{equation}

and got following error message,

! Package amsmath Error: \begin{split} won't work here.

What caused this problem and how can I fix it?

Of course, this is part of a document. Therefore, \begin{document} and \end{document} exist at the beginning and the end of the document.

Edited:

@daleif

\documentclass[fleqn,10pt,twocolumn]{ICCAS2020}

\usepackage{lipsum} 
\usepackage {subfigure}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[sc]{mathpazo}
\usepackage{cite}
\usepackage {amsmath}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{mathtools}

\begin{document}

\section{EX}

\begin{equation} \label{eq4}
\begin{split}
&R^T \left( \underbar r_{H/G} \times \underline f_H + \underline r_{R/G} \times \underline f_R + \underline \tau_R \right) \\
 &= I_G \underline \alpha + \underline \omega \times \left( I_G \underline \omega \right)
\end{split}
\end{equation}

\end{document}

Is this what you mean?

@Sebastiano

Thanks for your kind welcome, but your code didn't work for me.

By the way, what does MWE mean?

  • Welcome to the TeX.SE. What are your package, please?

    Since this compiles just fine for me, we need you to provide (as it tradition on this site) a full (but minimal) example that demonstrates the problem. Thus a document with document class, minimal preamble, that others can copy and test as is.

  • Thank you very much for your collaboration. Meanwhile delete the blank spaces in \usepackage {amsmath} and in the \usepackage {subfigure}.

  • Where is ICCAS2020.cls it is not a known class.

Remove the fleqn option. The class you use essentially do something like this when the fleqn option is active

\usepackage{amsmath}
\input{fleqn.clo}

So if we try

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\makeatletter
\input{fleqn.clo}
\makeatother
\begin{document}
\begin{equation} \label{eq4}
\begin{split}
&R^T \left( \underbar r_{H/G} \times \underline f_H + \underline r_{R/G} \times \underline f_R + \underline \tau_R \right) \\
 &= I_G \underline \alpha + \underline \omega \times \left( I_G \underline \omega \right)
\end{split}
\end{equation}
\end{document}

we get the same error, which goes away if the \input line is removed.

I'd recommend writing to the organisers and showing them your example.

Just your code compile fine for me...I have deleted amsmath and I have leaved the robust command mathtools.

\documentclass[fleqn,10pt,twocolumn]{article}

\usepackage{lipsum} 
\usepackage{subfigure}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[sc]{mathpazo}
\usepackage{cite}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{mathtools}

\begin{document}

\section{EX}

\begin{equation} \label{eq4}
\begin{split}
&R^T \left( \underbar r_{H/G} \times \underline f_H + \underline r_{R/G} \times \underline f_R + \underline \tau_R \right) \\
 &= I_G \underline \alpha + \underline \omega \times \left( I_G \underline \omega \right)
\end{split}
\end{equation}

\end{document}

    Your code worked fine, thanks! It seems ICCAS2020 make the problem...
