Minion® Math

“Minion® Math” is a set of mathematical fonts, designed to accompany the OpenType font family “Adobe Minion Pro” and extending it for mathematical typesetting.

General Information

Minion Math consists of 20 fonts:
4 weights (Regular, Medium, Semibold, Bold – just as Minion)
each in 5 optical sizes (Tiny, Caption, Text, Subhead, Display).

Minion Math offers an additional size “Tiny” for second-order superscripts and subscripts (at font sizes below 6pt); this optical size is not available with Adobe Minion Pro.

The Minion Math fonts are designed as an add-on package to Adobe Minion Pro.

From release version 1.020 onward (October 2011) all fonts contain a very complete glyph set for mathematical typesetting.

Support of additional mathematical alphabets is in preparation.

Font Format and Supported Typesetting Systems

The fonts are usable with traditional LaTeX, with Lua(La)TeX, Xe(La)TeX, ConTeXt, and with Microsoft Office.

  • Font format: OpenType (otf / cff)
    (Type 1 / pfb available upon request)
  • OpenType MATH table: supported since version 1.020
    (this allows math typesetting in Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010)
  • LaTeX support: working (and under further development)
  • Lua(La)TeX and ConTeXt support: working (and under further development)

Support files are supplied free-of-charge. See the Support page for details.

Glyph Set

Since Release 1.020, each font contains approximately 2900 glyphs, with a real Math Italic alphabet (wider than Text Italic, and with special kerning). An overview of the glyph set is available here (pdf file, 3.6 MB).

Each font features the same large glyph set.

This covers all LaTeX “oldmath” plus “ams” and all “newmath” glyphs, and many more – except for math alphabets; these will be added in a later release
(included are “Math Italic” and “Blackboard Bold”; within LaTeX support currently the fonts “eufr” are used for Fraktur and “rsfs” for Formal Script).

The fonts already cover almost all Unicode math symbols. Complete support of all Unicode math glyphs is under development and will be offered at a later stage.

Update and Upgrade Policy

Currently our policy is as follows:

Updates are supplied free-of-charge to all current licensees. The fonts are still under development, so licensees will benefit from any additions to the glyph set, improved kerning, technical additions, etc.

Upgrades will be subject to a fee, depending on the kind of upgrade. So far upgrades did not occur. An upgrade might be the case e.g. with new font formats, new technical developments, or a new version of Adobe Minion Pro which differs substantially, so that Minion Math has to be adapted.

How to Order

To order Minion Math fonts, please send an e-mail to minionmath@typoma.com, indicating which font set you wish to order. Please include your postal address.
Currently this is the only way to order the fonts; a webshop is in preparation.

If you do have any questions, please also send an e-mail to minionmath@typoma.com.

Minion Math in Use

Samples of Minion Math can be found in the conference presentations of Johannes Küster, especially in “Fonts for Mathematics”.

You could also have a look at www.motionmountain.eu (pdf files for download; a free physics text book typeset with Minion Pro and Minion Math).

This dissertation also uses (a preliminary version of) Minion Math.
