From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  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.
