Berthold K.P. Horn is Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. See here. He received the Bachelor of Engineering from the University of the Witwatersrand and S.M. and Ph.D. from MIT. Since 1990 he has also been working on typesetting tools for technical and mathematical books and articles. This required the generation of special math fonts, tools for hand hinting Type 1 fonts, and methods for reencoding fonts "on the fly" (that is, without changing the actual font files). The typesetting software and the fonts are marketed by Y&Y, Inc. in Concord, MA. See here. Y&Y, Inc. worked with Bigelow & Holmes, Inc. on the Lucida (R) New Math font family, and with Publish or Perish, Inc. on the MathTime (TM) font family. Some of the latest fonts take advantage of Unicode support in Windows NT and the special abilities of ATM 4 for NT 4. Special fonts for testing Unicode compliant applications have been developed. The de facto use of Unicode as a glyph standard by major operating systems is of particular interest.
