Biographical/Historical Sketch

The Euler Project at Stanford produced a digital typeface, consisting of over 500 mathematical characters, for the American Mathematical Society (AMS). The typeface, named after the 18th century mathematician Leonhard Euler, was designed by German type designer Hermann Zapf. The typeface was produced using the METAFONT type design language, developed by Donald E. Knuth at Stanford University, and formulated by the Digital Typography Group at Stanford University.
