I'm using latex templates which is producing a particular kind of math font, shown below.

How can I change it to produce something like following? I'm particularly interested in changing the math font.

Is there any specific package that I should exclude? unfortunately there are a couple of style and cls files and I'm not sure what is responsible for this change in font.

  • The latter is the standard Computer Modern, it looks like. You need to produce a minimal working example to help us help you. – Svend Tveskæg Jun 5 '14 at 6:18

    The math font you currently have looks like Euler. – ChrisS Jun 5 '14 at 6:19
  • I noticed that the second one is normal, but the problem is that I don't know where to look to bring this whole template back to normal. I'm using the MIT thesis template from this git repo and I doing a quick search I couldn't find the term Euler anywhere. Did I miss it? – SKV Jun 5 '14 at 6:24
  • Edit: ChrisS: you were right. I was able to find \usepackage[small]{eulervm} and by commenting it out the problem was solved. Thank you all! – SKV Jun 5 '14 at 6:46

If you cannot change the template itself then write before \begin{document}:


for Palatino like fonts or


for Computer Modern fonts.

  • The first solution clashes with the current setting (LaTeX Error: Option clash for package textcomp.) but the second one works. Any suggestion as why one may be better than the other? – SKV Jun 5 '14 at 6:33
  • @Siamak As I've already mentioned, you have to provide a MWE. – Svend Tveskæg Jun 5 '14 at 6:48
  • @Svend, as @ChrisS pointed out the problem was a the eulervm package. By removing it the problem was fix. Although just including the usepackage{lmodern} just before the begining of the document also did the trick. – SKV Jun 5 '14 at 6:52

    @Siamak What has that got to do with the error you just mentioned? – Svend Tveskæg Jun 5 '14 at 7:02
