hello, bala,

thanks for the reply. I had an error with the command you gave. But I know
what it does and slightly modified it. It put an extra entry in the TOC.

the answer was actually to a different
(but related) question).  i'm glad you

Finally I got rid of the \appendix and used following commands to achieve
the goals

\clearpage

\begin{center}

{\bf APPENDIX}\\

\end{center}

\thispagestyle{plain}

\setcounter{equation}{0}

\renewcommand{\theequation}{A.\arabic{equation}}

there's an even better way to do this.
it's described in the ams author faq, at
http://www.ams.org/faq?faq_id=247
http://www.ams.org/faq?faq_id=248
the second question actually applies to
your situation better than the first, but
i want to take this opportunity to point
out this resource to other users of the
ams document classes.  the general link
for the entire faq is
http://www.ams.org/authors/author-faq
and that has a box to enter search terms.
