And finding free mathematical fonts is even more problematic! AFAIK
the only free available math fonts beside the "computer modern/ams" fonts
are those of elsevier, called ESSTIX. I have a not finished work on
creating a lout "eq" package, which uses these fonts. But it is a mess
, because the fonts are of low quality, i.e. they use the PostScript
standard encoding (which is a pain in the ass for math fonts), they have
lot of errors in their metric files and they are very poorly hinted.
