Fonts for Mathematics

Most fonts contain a few math characters, but in most cases these are hardly suitable to typeset any but most elementary mathematics. Very few fonts have been extended to offer a decent set of mathematical characters.

This talk will concentrate on the special requirements that mathematical typesetting imposes on fonts, and on the required set of additional glyphs and their design.

This should enable font designers to understand the concepts of math typesetting and to give an idea on how fonts could be extended for mathematics — and why it is not that easy.
