The fonts specified in this book are really interesting for people writing a thesis. I was wondering if any of you can give me some more information on what are the fonts they use? Specifically on pages 6 and 7. Please find attached screenshots.

What is the font used to write section 1.4 and the text itself? My guess is that the text is written in times. Section 1.4.1 is written using \textsf

What was used for Figure 1.3?

Here is page 7:enter image description here Here is page 6: enter image description here

I would like to use these fonts for my thesis.

After the comment from @egreg, you can ignore this comment. This text seems to show Palatino. For instance, the font in this text, is much thicker that it is in my thesis (after adding \usepackage{lmodern}, and removing times form the document class). I do not know where to begin to make it thicker

    You're comparing apples and oranges: the font used in the article on PracTeX is Palatino, your thesis seems to use Times. Neither is the same as in the book. – egreg Dec 14 '16 at 8:22

I took a look at the ebook from my library, and the typefaces used in the PDF, according to the properties, are all of the Latin Modern family.

  • The main text doesn't look like Latin modern. Question of curiosity: does the font family change based on the class? And the Latin modern consists of 72 fonts, I'm having a hard time pin pointing which one it is. – tandem Dec 13 '16 at 21:24
  • Most of them consist in optical sizes. It's not up to you to choose if you use lmr12 or lmr8 for instance, it's the format. – Bernard Dec 13 '16 at 21:41
  • I added a picture of what fonts the PDF says it contains – Michal Sudwoj Dec 13 '16 at 22:04
  • How do enable any of the given fonts... i used \usepackage{lmodern} and how do we set the mainfont? – tandem Dec 14 '16 at 7:51
