It depends on the context.
If you generate a PostScript with Display absent a format argument:
Display[<channel>, <graphics object>]
or Export with the "MPS" target format:
Export[<channel>, <graphics object>, "MPS"]
You will obtain abbreviated Mathematica PostScript, which is also what is
store in individual graphics cells within notebooks. This cannot be read
by a standard PostScript interpreter.
However, if you specify Encapsulated PostScript:
Export[<channel>, <graphics object>, "EPS"]
the EPS is readable by other interpreters. You will need to ensure that
the rendering device does have access to the Math fonts. This is

The PDF generation feature works for the case of individual graphics, but
it does not work for complete documents. It is not intended to be a
full-blown Distiller replacement.
