GFSNeohellenicMath (version 1.0.1)
----------------------------------

The font GFSNeohellenicMath was commissioned to the Greek Font Society (GFS) 
by the Graduate Studies program "Studies in Mathematics" of the 
Department of Mathematics of the University of the Aegean, 
located on the Samos island, Greece.

The design copyright belongs to the main designer of GFS, George Matthiopoulos. 
The OpenType Math Table embedded in the font was developed by the 
Mathematics Professor Antonis Tsolomitis.

The font is released under the latest OFL license, and it is available from 
the GFS site at http://www.greekfontsociety-gfs.gr

The font is an almost Sans Serif font and one of its main uses is for presentations, 
an area where (we believe) a commercial grade sans math font was not available up to now.

The font contains an extened glyph set including more than the standard math symbols 
such as vertically extended integrals, chess symbols, etc. Vertically extended integrals 
are useful for large constructions although they are still not accessible by 
unicode-math (developement of this feature is in the works). To facilitate 
access to these symbols a style file is included (gfsneohllenicot.sty). 
Larger integrals are accessible with the commands \Bigint, \biggint, 
\Biggint, \bigggint. Smaller integrals, sums and products are also available 
with the commands \smallprod, \smallcoprod, \smallsum and \smallint.

This style file does two additional things. First, it scales the font to 1.2 of 
it's design size to match the xheight of GFS Didot if a serif font is needed to 
be used with it, and fixes accordingly the interline skip. Second it modifies 
interword spacing to 75% for a tighter look, and adds interletter spacing (tracking) 
to the \scshape command. Old style numerals are also accessible with \scshape.

A math sample is bundled with the font courtesy of Alain Aubord who has converted 
to LaTeX the work of Steve Seiden named "Theoretical Computer Science Cheat Sheet". 
(The name was switched to "Mathematics Cheat Sheet" by Antonis Tsolomitis). 
(Note that Steve Seiden in his license allows redistribution not for profit if 
his copyright is not altered (it appears on page 4 of the the cheat sheet)).

A Greek Math sample is available at 
http://myria.math.aegean.gr/~atsol/newpage/lecturenotes/convex-geometry/cga.pdf

We want to thank Alain Aubord for providing the cheat sheet and for running 
several tests with the font that provided important feedback.

GFSNeohellenicMath – A Greek math font in the Neo-Hellenic style

The GFSNeohellenic font, a historic font first designed by Victor Scholderer, and digitized by George Matthiopoulos of the Greek Font Society (GFS), now has native support for Mathematics.

The project was commissioned to GFS by the Department of Mathematics of the University of the Aegean, Samos, Greece. The Math Table was constructed by the Mathematics Professor A. Tsolomitis. A useful application is in beamer documents since this is a Sans Math font.

The GFSNeohellenic fontfamily supports many languages (including Greek), and it is distributed (both text and math) under the OFL license.
