The Pazo Math fonts are a family of PostScript fonts suitable for typesetting math in combination with the Palatino family of text fonts. The Pazo Math family is made up of five fonts provided in Type1 format (PazoMath, PazoMath-Italic, PazoMath-Bold, PazoMath-BoldItalic, and PazoMathBlackboardBold). These contain, in designs that suit Palatino, glyphs that are usually not available in Palatino and for which Computer Modern looks odd when combined with Palatino. These glyphs include the uppercase Greek alphabet in upright and slanted shapes in regular and bold weights, the lowercase Greek alphabet in slanted shape in regular and bold weights, several math glyphs (partialdiff, summation, product, coproduct, emptyset, infinity, and proportional) in regular and bold weights, other glyphs (Euro and dotlessj) in upright and slanted shapes in regular and bold weights, and the uppercase letters commonly used to represent various number sets (C, I, N, Q, R, and Z) in blackboard bold. The LaTeX macro package mathpazo.sty defines the Palatino family as the default roman font and uses the virtual mathpazo fonts, built around the Pazo Math family, for typesetting math in a style that suits Palatino.
