Different people like different styles, and so it maybe useful to list all the math fonts for greek letters in latex. So far as I know, there are some math fonts for greek letters as follows for which the way to invoke see: http://www.tug.org/pracjourn/2006-1/hartke/hartke.pdf.

    Aside from being opinion based, I would note that, with rare exception, you should use a complete font set (as designed), rather than to pick and choose individual characters from various fonts. Apr 26, 2019 at 11:06
  • @StevenB.Segletes So I intend to select a best font from the answers.

  • You have done a lot of work. Might you consider putting something like this on CTAN for general distribution? You might, though, find that someone (I can't remember who) has beaten you to it. Apr 26, 2019 at 17:46

You can use:

  • Any font from The LaTeX Font Catalogue that has math support
  • Any LGR-encoded Greek font, with mathastext
  • Any OML-encoded math font, with isomath.
  • Any OpenType math font with unicode-math
  • Any OpenType or TrueType font family with Greek letters at the right Unicode code points, using either the range= option of \setmathfont in unicode-math or the \setmathsfont command of mathspec
  • Various legacy math packages with their own 8-bit encodings
  • Any other font format, if you’re willing to convert it and do a lot of work on font metrics

My recommendation would be to use modern font formats and Unicode when you can, and legacy encodings when you have to.
