Atomic Multpath Payments (AMP) are payments that use multiple paths to complete a transaction that either all complete successfully or none complete successfully.

One of the problems the lightning network has had is limited ability to send higher-value payments, because of limitations in channel capacity along possible routes to the payee. Using AMP, a payer can send a payment using many paths, which can make larger payments far more reliable.
