If uncertain organic memory serves, these were a custom version of 
Agfa's Math Pi. There is not a ``ScienceType'' fontset in Adobe Font 
Folio (I checked v7 and v8 as well as the new OpenType edition). The 
numbering seems to jibe at any rate.

I'd compare a print to the file and see if you can puzzle out the 
changes made.
