General InformationMinion Math consists of 20 fonts: 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 SystemsThe fonts are usable with traditional LaTeX, with Lua(La)TeX, Xe(La)TeX, ConTeXt, and with Microsoft Office.
Support files are supplied free-of-charge. See the Support page for details. Glyph SetSince 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 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. EULAThe End User License Agreement (EULA) for Minion Math can be found here (html version) or as pdf here (pdf version). PricingThe standard license is for a single user and for up to 5 CPUs. Prices for a standard license are as follows:
German VAT of 19% is applicable within the European Union. Prices for multi-user licenses (i.e. more than one user and/or more than 5 CPUs) are available upon request. Update and Upgrade PolicyCurrently 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.

Minion Math in UseSamples 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. Version InformationThe current version of Minion Math is 1.023, released in April 2012. Version History:
