The font used in "Calculus & Mathematica" by Davis, Porta, and Uhl is called "CalcMath". It's a proprietary font that "belongs" to Addison-Wesley and is distributed with the electronic text. A-W doesn't seem to be particularly interested in exercising it ownership rights to this font; I've heard from at least one colleague that they've taken the position the fonts can't be copyrighted and "owned". (I'm sure that Adobe and other foundries would take issue with this position.) You may be able to obtain more, and more explicit, information from one of the co-authors of the book, Bill Davis, of Ohio State University: davis at math.ohio-state.edu --Lou Talman Metropolitan State College of Denver ------------------------------------------------------ Begin forwarded message: To: mathgroup at christensen.cybernetics.net Subject: [mg587] Fonts for math eqns in Davis,Porta&Uhl Date: Wed, 22 Mar 95 19:13:27 +0900 From: "Ronald D. Notestine" <ronald at sccs.chukyo-u.ac.jp> Content-Length: 675 Does anybody know what fonts are used to express math expressions in the notebooks for Calculus & Mathematica by Davis, Porta & Uhl. There are many such math expressions within text cells of the Calculus&MMA notebooks. However, these use a font which I apparently do not have resulting in meaningless strings of characters. I have tried on a Mac 660av running KanjiTalk 7.1, and a IIfx running English system 7.1. I received only the disks, with no separate documentation, and no fonts I have tried make sense of what are clearly supposed to be mathematical expressions. Thanks for any help.
