    what's wrong with my pdf created by texshop?

    see this pdf:
    http://pengchao1024.googlepages.com/Untitled.pdf

    Have u found that in the first page and the third page, the words start in the same line, but in second page, there are some spaces to the left.
    Why is that?
    I didnt put anything special to make the pages different.

    And another question, take a look at question 7, Torus.
    How can we make "7. Torus" nearer to the left?

    More question, why does the title "Groups 1" appears again in page 3?

    Try it by using the following:

    \pdfpagewidth 8.5in
    \pdfpageheight 12in
    \setlength\topmargin{0in}
    \setlength\headheight{0.2in}
    \setlength\headsep{-1.4in}
    \setlength\textheight{10.3in}
    \setlength\textwidth{6.66in}
    \setlength\oddsidemargin{-0.2in}
    \setlength\evensidemargin{-0.2in}
    \setlength\parindent{0.25in}
    \setlength\parskip{0.25in}


    from there you can modify it as you want. As for the second question, add a \noindent, or if you prefer to enumerate something, make it with

    \begin{enumerate}
    \item content
    \item content
    .
    .
    .
    \end{enumerate}

    I don't understand what you want to do with that.

    It's away of my LaTeX knowledge, so I suggest you to ask this here.

    I think most of the problems arise from using \maketitle to provide the heading and subheading. The amsart documentclass uses \title and \author as the running heads for odd and even pages respectively. You would do much better not to use \maketitle at all.

    I suggest that you scrap the line \maketitle, and replace it with this:
    Code:
    \makeatletter
    \def\my@headings{\let\@mkboth\markboth
    \def\@evenhead{\hfil {\large Groups 1} \hfil \hbox to 0pt{\hss\thepage}}
    \def\@oddhead{\@evenhead}
    \def\@evenfoot{}
    \def\@oddfoot{\@evenfoot}}
    \my@headings
    \thispagestyle{empty}
    \makeatother
    \begin{center}
    {\Large GROUPS 1} \\ 2007--2008
    \end{center}
    Also, scrap the lines
    \title{\Large Groups 1}
    \author{\large 2007-2008}

    You should then find that each page (except the first) has the running head "Groups 1", with the page number at the right of the page.
