IMHO, some math books published by the German company Hanser have a very pleasing layout. I'm attaching an example below (screenshot from Google Books which I hope is fair use).

I guess this was done with LaTeX, but I'm not very good at figuring out fonts from just staring at them. Which settings would I have to use to reproduce a similar layout, including the fonts used for math?

    For the layout of chapters, sections, &c., you should take a look at the documentation of titlesec. Clearly, you should use the fleqn option, and for shaded equations, it can easily be done with empheq. Also, the baseline skip seems to be a little more than usually with LaTeX. You may add something like \linespread{1.08}. – Bernard Jul 19 at 8:48
  • For the 2nd MWE you can put \ssfamily to change the fonts of the section, ecc. Always for my opinion the font for the section, paragraph, ecc...is similar to Arial but in this case is necessary to use XeLaTeX, LuaLaTeX. – Sebastiano Jul 19 at 11:52

Seeing your template, in my humble opinion, it seems to use the fourier package.

Here you can find several fonts with LaTeX math support: https://tug.dk/FontCatalogue/mathfonts.html

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{book}
\usepackage{fourier}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\begin{document}
\chapter{My version}
\blindtext[1]
\[\pi D_n(\varphi)=\sum_{n=1}^\infty\cos (k\varphi)\]
\end{document}

Addendum

This is only a bad copy for your template :-) You can change the style of the chapter with Sonny, Lenny, etc.: Fncychap: titoli fantasiosi di capitoli in classe book LaTeX

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{book}
\usepackage{fourier}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}
\usepackage[Lenny]{fncychap}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\titleformat{\section}
  {\Large\bfseries\color{gray}{\large}}{\color{gray}{$\blacksquare\quad$}\thesection}{1em}{}
  \titleformat{\subsection}
  {\Large\bfseries\color{gray}{\large}}{\color{gray}{$\blacksquare\quad$}\thesubsection}{1em}{}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\begin{document}
\chapter{My version}
\section{Dirichlet Kernfunktionen}
\blindmathpaper
\subsection{Name 1}
\blindmathpaper
\subsubsection{Name 2}

\end{document}

    I was unsure as to whether it might be Bookman (via the free clone TeX Gyre Bonum), but you've convinced me (+1). It may be completed for text by erewhon which adds true small caps, and some other features. – Bernard Jul 19 at 8:45
  • @Bernard :-).-) I used Bookman old style in my graduation thesis. The glyphs I saw closest to me from the catalogue look like fourier glyphs. Then I can do mistakes. – Sebastiano Jul 19 at 8:48

    Thanks a lot, that is pretty much exactly what I was looking for! – Frunobulax Jul 19 at 12:06
  • @Frunobulax I am very glad to help you and other users. For my little experience it is necessary to create the same style very lot of time. My best regards and you return here sometimes :-). Bye. – Sebastiano Jul 19 at 12:09
