Wolfram Mathematica comes with full (?) set of math fonts. Is it possible to use these fonts in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX? I mean something like

unicode-math needs OpenType Math fonts. I don't think Mathematica provides those. – Caramdir Oct 6 '11 at 3:26
@Garamir: Mathematica comes with True Type fonts. Shouldn't unicode-math work with True Type? – Igor Kotelnikov Oct 6 '11 at 4:22
@Joseph Wright: I guess that MS Word works with single math fonts (all math symbols, operators) in single file. Word has no mechanism (at least I don't know such) to incorporate several font files simulteneously, but unicode-math provides such mechanism through range option of \setmathfont. – Igor Kotelnikov Oct 6 '11 at 14:54

Math typesetting is complex, and needs a lot of structures inside the font. OpenType math fonts have these, but TrueType ones don't. I suspect that Mathematica relies on 'knowing' details of the fonts, in the same way that traditional TeX math fonts are made up of several files with a known relationship (to TeX). So you won't be able to use these fonts with LuaTeX, or I suspect with the Word 2007/2010 equation editor (which also uses OpenType).
