Unicode 3.1 has new 951 symbols and operators and 991 new alphanumeric symbols in addition to 340 symbols currently encoded for a total of 2282 math symbols. This repertoire is the result of input from many sources, notably from the STIX project and enables one to display virtually all standard mathematical symbols.
