I have never heard of this font and Google doesn't give me anything. Please post a link to information about the font. – Svend Tveskæg Dec 23 '13 at 7:02
I am sorry. I only have the newspaper. – minthao_2011 Dec 23 '13 at 7:11
I think you are talking about the sans serif font. The font is called Optima. – karlkoeller Dec 23 '13 at 7:22
A'ha. So it is not called "Mathematics Magazine" as claimed. – Svend Tveskæg Dec 23 '13 at 7:32

I think you are talking about the sans serif font (the serif font is Times).

This font is called Optima and a clone is available for LaTeX as URW Classico.

You can find informations in the LaTeX font catalogue at the Optima page.

If you don't have it installed on your system, go to the corresponding CTAN page, where you will find the package to be downloaded and instructions for installing it on your system.
