The UNICODE-MATH package

This package provides an implementation of Unicode/OpenType mathematics for XeLaTeX and Lua.

While I am a little wary of encouraging people to use this package for production work, I understand that it has certain uses and am making it available for distribution. Your testing and feedback is essential to fill in the many gaps that I miss!

Please be aware that this package is undergoing continued development and the interface and functionality should not be considered completely stable. But the more the package is used the more stable it will become. (Things are generally working now; it is only minutiae that may change in the future.)

Unicode maths is currently supported by the following freely available fonts:

These fonts are available under open source licences (the GUST Font License and Open Font Licence).

The following fonts are proprietary with OpenType maths support:

I'm always looking for new fonts to test with, so please let me know of any new releases.


Please see the PDF documentation for full details. A simple beginning is:


Most math should still work after this. (Let me know if it doesn't.) Furthermore, it will be in a different font.


As well as running or Lua, this package requires recent versions of the lm-math, fontspec, expl3, xpackages, and lualatex-math packages.


I write code as a hobby and a passion, not as part of my day job. If you would like to say thanks, please consider a donation at: https://www.patreon.com/wspr

unicode-math – Unicode mathematics support for and Lua

This package provides a comprehensive implementation of unicode maths for XeLaTeX and Lua. Unicode maths requires an OpenType mathematics font, of which there are now a number available via CTAN.

While backwards compatibility is strived for, there are some differences between the legacy mathematical definitions in and amsmath, and the Unicode mathematics definitions. Care should be taken when transitioning from a legacy workflow to a Unicode-based one.
