Yes, latinmodern-math.otf is installed, not in the Standard Font folder but  in the texmf-dist/fonts/opentype folder of TeXLive 2012, and LuaLaTeX recognises it. This file is not the culprit anyway, since the program runs without problem if I comment out the line "\usepackage{amsmath}".

The puzzling thing is that rigourously the same program works perfectly well with Snow Leopard and not for Mountain Lion.

Maybe something to do with the Migration Assistant? I should try to reinstall MacTeX from scratch…
