Mathabx fonts series -------------------- Last modification: May 16, 2005 --------------------------------- Summary ------- The mathabx series are a large mathematical symbols set designed and defined in MetaFont language. Many of common and uncommon symbols can be found in these series. Encoding, metrics, designs are not supposed to be frozen since improvements, changes of mind can always happen. These programs are intended to produce bitmap fonts and a lot of care is given about rasterization. Brief description of the fonts ------------------------------ mathaXX (XX ranges from 5 to 12): quite common mathematical symbols; mathbXX (XX ranges from 5 to 12): quite uncommon mathematical symbols; mathxXX (XX ranges from 5 to 12): large and extensible mathematical symbols which fit the two previous series; mathcXX (XX ranges from 10 to 10): unsupported (yet) since it is an incomplete calligraphic series; mathuXX (XX ranges from 10 to 10): unsupported (forever) since it is a too strange symbols series; mathuxXX (XX ranges from 10 to 10): unsupported (forever) since it is a too strange large or extensible symbols series. Suggested TDS location for all ``.mf'' files: --------------------------------------------- $TEXMF/fonts/source/public/mathabx Brief description of the (La)TeX files -------------------------------------- mathabx.tex: ``plain TeX'' input file which defines the 3 families matha (5,7,10), mathb (5,7,10) and mathx (10,10,10) then read mathabx.dcl; mathabx.sty: LaTeX input file which defines the 3 families matha, mathb and mathx according to LaTeX fonts selection scheme, then read mathabx.dcl; mathabx.dcl: declaration of every new or conpound symbol. Suggested TDS location: $TEXMF/tex/generic/misc/ ----------------------- Support for installation: Almost none. ------------------------- Documentation: mathtest.tex, testmac.tex. -------------- mathtest.tex is a plain tex file that uses testmac as a macro file and which need that all the fonts should be properly installed. See postscript (or PDF) outputs provided in this distribution. Brief commentary: Happy TeXing. ----------------- Anthony Phan.

## mathabx – Three series of mathematical symbols

Mathabx is a set of 3 mathematical symbols font series: matha, mathb and mathx. They are defined by METAFONT code and should be of reasonable quality (bitmap output). Things change from time to time, so there is no claim of stability (encoding, metrics, design).

The package includes Plain TeX and LaTeX support macros.

A version of the fonts, in Adobe Type 1 format, is also available.
