it's simple if you're using latex (at least in a current
installation).  simply


and you get the best latex can manage, by way of adobe times.  (for
really good results you would also need some times maths fonts, but
these cost real money.)

adobe times isn't exactly times new, but it's near enough for most
university administrators.

if you're using plain tex, i don't know how to do the job, i'm afraid.
