I think the problem may be here. The "lucidabr" package is a complete  
solution for both text and math fonts and symbols. Hence when using  
it, as far as I know, neither "amsfonts" nor "amssymb" should be loaded.

And to avoid a different confusion: One should still load "amsmath"  
if the niceties of math typesetting are wanted. And better before  
"lucidabr", then this one will redefine a few of its commands.

Hope this helps,
