Dr. Ravi Vakil's Algebraic Geometry notes use fonts that I really like; I was wondering if anyone knew off hand how to implement them. I could not find any source tex files unfortunately.

Thanks a lot!

Sorry I wasn't clear... I'm looking for both. –  ae0709 Feb 20 '12 at 4:14
    
I'm almost positive the text font is Palatino. –  user2473 Feb 20 '12 at 4:17
    
Are you asking about the text font in use or the math font?The former is Palatino, the latter is likely either Euler or Euler VM. –  Mico Feb 20 '12 at 4:21
    
Quite a remarkable cocktail of fonts. AFAICT, only missing Comic Sans and Windings2 –  Brent.Longborough Feb 20 '12 at 12:58

It's Palatino with Euler for math.

\usepackage{mathpazo}
\usepackage{euler}

Or if you want to use fontspec and Microsoft's (authorized) Palatino:

\usepackage[no-math]{fontspec}
\setmainfont{Palatino Linotype}
\usepackage{euler}

Thank you! Also I appreciate including the code because I did not know how to change the fonts. –  ae0709 Feb 20 '12 at 4:21

@aengle1429 You can check the font names used in a PDF by pressing CTRL+D in Acrobat and checking the fonts tab. But I don't know if this works in Adobe Reader (Acrobat Reader) also. –  rdhs Feb 20 '12 at 4:27

Another way to discover which fonts are used in a document is the pdffonts command line tool. TeX Live has it available. A quick run with pdffonts article.pdf:

We need to abstract the output. :P We can find Palatino and e.g, EURM10, which is the Euler roman medium font in AMSFonts.
