Designing Math Fonts

Johannes Kuester

In the design of math fonts (to accompany an existing text font family) one faces some common problems (e.g. font dimensions, certain glyph shapes) and some general design decisions (e.g. the height of math_axis, the general size and shape of symbols, rule_thickness, TeX's font dimensions explained in Appendix G etc.).

This paper/talk gives an overview of these problems and decisions and will give some general direction for their solution.

An outlook on further development of NewMath encodings and fonts and on Latin Modern Math fonts development is also given.
