I recently came across this preprint of Pierre Berthelot, and became a little obsessed with the very pretty typesetting. I determined that the text font is New Century Schoolbook or something very close, which \usepackage{fouriernc} does a fine job of emulating. However, one thing which this package does not capture are the preprint's neat \mathcal, \mathfrak, and \mathbb fonts. Here are some screenshots of those: enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

The pdffonts tool claims that these are "Atalante" or "Beaulieu" fonts, but a google search for these did not turn up anything useful (although a recording of a Tolkein poem in one of his obscure Elvish languages was quite interesting!). Any help on how to use these fonts would be appreciated.

  • A good resource for tracking down math font possibilties is pp. 7 to 12 of the user guide of the mathalpha (aka mathalfa) package.

  • @Mico, thanks for the suggestion! I have used the mathalpha package in the past so this was one of the places I looked; however the fonts used in Berthelot's preprint don't look to me like any of those appearing in the mathalfa user guide.

  • Oh, I don't know. The normal-weight and bold-weight fraktur letters of Mathmematica Fraktur look to me like reasonable candidates for the a and m letters in your screenshot. However, to each their own.
