   AM
  
      1. {Amplitude Modulation}.
  
      2. A program by {Doug Lenat} to
      discover concepts in elementary mathematics.   AM was written
      in 1976 in {Interlisp}.   From 100 fundamental concepts and
      about 250 {heuristics} it discovered several important
      mathematical concepts including subsets, disjoint sets, sets
      with the same number of elements, and numbers.   It worked by
      filling slots in {frames} maintaining an agenda of
      resource-limited prioritised tasks.
  
      AM's successor was {Eurisko}.
