Did you try opening the EPS files on the Mac (double-clicking an EPS  
file in the Finder will launch Preview which will convert the file to  
PDF on-the-fly and display the result of the conversion)?

What you report suggests that the EPS files don't include the fonts  
used in the mathematical expressions. If that's the case, the files  
display fine on your PC because these fonts are installed in the OS,  
but not the Mac where the fonts aren't installed.

The Mac won't use the PDF version of the files if, in TeXShop, you  
select TeX and GhostScript in the Typeset menu.
