Is there any package to change the math font (amsmath Computer Modern) to match the Helvetica font I am using as default in my document (helvet or tgheros package)?

(In the same way as mathpazo for Palatino math)

Try arevmath which is originally for Bitstream Vera. – Leo Liu Jan 2 '12 at 12:30
mathpazo doesn't use a math palatino font. There exists only a commerical version of Palatino math. You can use sansmath.sty – Herbert Jan 2 '12 at 13:00
sansmath does the trick! Which answer to accept? – yolo Jan 3 '12 at 11:33

Use the sansmath package.

MicroPress has designed the HV Math fonts for which there's also LaTeX support via the hvmath package. Note that the Type 1 version of HV Math is commercial, but there's a free bitmapped version with a resolution of 300 dpi.

EDIT: As Herbert pointed out, the commercial Type 1 version isn't available anymore.

that font is no more available. micropress-inc doesn't exists anymore! – Herbert Jan 2 '12 at 12:58
@Herbert Using micropress-inc.com/demo.htm#hvmath, I was able to download what seems to be font plus support files. Or do you mean that the Type 1 fonts isn't available anymore? – lockstep Jan 2 '12 at 13:06
yes, meant the commercial type 1 version. Same for Paltino and so on – Herbert Jan 2 '12 at 13:58
