- In 1725 it moved to the White Horse in Wheeler Street, then in 1735 to the Ben Johnson's Head in Woodseer Street.
- The original rules of the Society limited the number of members to "the square of eight" but clearly this proved hard to maintain for by 1735 it had been reduced to "the square of seven".
- Basically it operated as a working men's club and we know that the members of 1744 [',' J W S Cassels, The Spitalfields Mathematical Society, Bull.

- By 1804 the number of members was changed to the square of nine and now it started to look more like other mathematical societies in that it elected a president, secretary, treasurer, and six trustees.
- More ambitious lecture programmes were started and, for example, in 1821 a course was put on [',' R A Sampson, The decade 1840-1850, in J L E Dreyer and H H Turner (eds.), History of the Royal Astronomical Society (London, 1923), 83-109.','3]:-

- In 1937 the Mathematical Club became a broader society when mathematicians, physicists and astronomers from universities of Belgrade, Zagreb and Ljubljana formed the Yugoslav Mathematical Society, based in Belgrade and with the Belgrade mathematician Tadija Pejovic as its President.
- He attended the gymnasium in Kragujevac but his education was interrupted by the Balkan wars and then when World War I broke out in 1914 he was put into the military.
- He served with distinction throughout the war and even after it ended in 1918 he remained in Dubrovnik as commander of a railway station until mid-June 1919.
- He graduated in 1921 and taught mathematics in a high school as well as becoming an assistant at the University.
- He was awarded a doctorate in 1923 for his thesis on the generalized Riccati differential equation which he defended on 6 February of that year.
- When World War II affected Serbia in 1941 he became a lieutenant colonel in the Serbian army but was captured by the Germans and spent four years in German prisoner of war camps.
- After his release in 1945 he was able to return to Belgrade and, after a year negotiating with the authorities, he was able to resume his work at the University.
- When the Society of Mathematicians and Physicists of Serbia was founded in 1948 Serbia was part of Yugoslavia, as it had essentially been since 1919 when the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes was formed.

.
- The Hamburg Mathematical Society (Mathematische Gesellschaft in Hamburg), founded in 1690, is the oldest mathematical society in the world which still exists today.
- It was not, however, the only society founded in Hamburg in the 17th century for, after the Thirty Years War (1618-1648), various citizens of Hamburg got together and formed societies of people with similar interests.
- For example, before the mathematical society, a medical society was founded in 1644 and a music society in 1660.
- The need for such a mathematical Society was shown by the quotes in [',' J F Bubendey, Beitrage zur Geschichte der Mathematischen Gesellschaft in Hamburg 1690-1790, Mitteilungen der Mathematischen Gesellschaft in Hamburg 1 (1) (1881), 8-16.','1]:-
.
- To overcome these problems, the Society was founded as the 'Kunstrechnungsliebende Societat in Hamburg' by Heinrich Meissner (20 April 1644 - 1 September 1716) and Valentin Heins.
- Heinrich Meissner was a pupil at the Knackenruggesche school in Hamburg, becoming a teacher there in 1669.
- In 1688 he became a teacher at the St Jacobi Church school where he taught writing and calculating until shortly before his death.
- Valentin Heins, the son of a linen weaver, taught arithmetic from 1651 in Hamburg, then he studied theology from 1658 to 1659 at Jena and Leipzig.
- For example Heinrich Meissner published Stern und Kern der Algebrae in 1692 which begins with a discussion of basic arithmetic including the extraction of square and cubic roots.
- Valentin Heins (15 May 1637 - 17 November 1704) published Tyrocinium Mercatorio-Arithmeticum (1694) which was a much more conventional commercial arithmetic.
- Meissner, who died in 1716, was the last of the founding members.
- After that the Society only had three members from Hamburg and by 1717 only two remained.
- It certainly did not flourish so the Society revised its statutes in 1774, and again in 1789-90 to distinguish itself from other societies that were starting up aiming to include scholars, lawyers and merchants wishing to improve trade and commerce.
- For example in 1819 the Society published a famous handbook of navigation by Reinhard Woltman (1757-1837), the Handbuch der Schiffahrtskunde.
- One important person in the development of the Society was Hermann Schubert who moved to Hamburg in 1876 to take up an appointments as a teacher at the Johanneum, the renowned humanistic school.
- This turned into the publication of its journal, the Mitteilungen der Mathematischen Gesellschaft in Hamburg, with volume 1 being published in 1881.
- Plans to found the university had been made much earlier but had to be shelved when World War I broke out in 1914.
- Only after the war ended in 1918 was it possible to continue with the plan.
- With the opening of the university in 1919, Wilhelm Blaschke was appointed to the chair in the University of Hamburg.
- For four years the Society was unable to operate but from around 1950, under the leadership of Werner Burau (1906-1994), the Society was rebuilt and by 1963 it had returned to have as many members as there had been in the 1920s.

- The first Balkan mathematical journal Revue Mathematique de l'Union Interbalkanique appeared in 1936 and in 1938.
- The first contacts and discussions aimed at reviving the Union started in 1956.
- The 70's were the golden era for the Balkan Mathematical Union: the Fourth Congress (Istanbul 1971), the Fifth Congress (Belgrade 1974), several conferences and symposiums, Balkaniads for university students and for young researchers, scientific sessions during the meetings of the Executive Council of Balkan Mathematical Union, etc.
- It was published by the Union of Mathematicians, Physicists and Astronomers of Yugoslavia and edited by Academician Djuro Kurepa (Volume 1 appeared in 1971 with Volume 6 published in 1980).
- In accordance with the decision of the Executive Council of the Balkan Mathematical Union (taken in July 1984) in 1987, the National Committee for Mathematics of Bulgaria and the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences started the publication of Mathematica Balkanica - New Series, edited by Academician Blagovest Sendov.

- It was officially founded on 30 June 1943 for a period of 50 years and, on 1 July 1993, this was extended by a further period of 50 years.
- The person who was very influential in the setting up of the Society, despite the fact that he died seven years before the Society was founded, was Sotero Prieto Rodriguez (1884-1935).
- The son of the mining engineer and professor of mathematics Raul Prieto Gonzalez Bango and Teresa Rodriguez de Prieto, Prieto attended high school in Mexico City from 1897 to 1901, and then studied civil engineering at the National School of Engineers from 1902 to 1906.
- He made a special study of higher mathematics and in 1932 founded the Mathematics Section of the National Academy of Sciences "Antonio Alzate", now the National Academy of Sciences of Mexico.
- Several of those who were part of this group of mathematicians became founders of the Mexican Mathematical Society, but the person who perhaps was the most influential of these was Alfonso Napoles Gandara (1897-1992).
- He was born in Cuernavaca, Morelos on 14 October 1897 and, from 1910, studied at the National Preparatory School.
- In 1916 he entered the National School of Engineers where he was taught by Sotero Prieto.
- He replaced Sotero Prieto as professor in that school in 1921.
- In 1930 he was awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Scholarship to study at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where, between 1930 and 1932, he attended fourteen courses.
- He was part of Sotero Prieto's group of enthusiasts for higher mathematics and, after Sotero Prieto's death in 1935, he was the main figure to keep alive the idea of forming a group of mathematicians to promote the subject.
- The Bulletin of the Mexican Mathematical Society (Boletin de la Sociedad Matematica Mexicana) began publication in 1943 with one volume per year and two parts per volume.
- Alfonso Napoles Gandara was the editor of this first series which continued publication until volume 11 in 1954.
- The Bulletin was not published in 1955, then the second series began publication in 1956 with Jose Adem and Emilio Lluis Riera as editors.
- A third series of the Bulletin began publishing in 1995, with one volume consisting of two issues each year, and this series continues to be published.
- The Mexican Mathematical Society began publishing Miscelanea Matematica in 1972.
- Ana Meda Guardiola coordinates the present editorial board which consists of 13 Mexican mathematicians.
- Examples are the International Symposium of Algebraic Topology held in 1956 and the International Symposium of Differential Equations held in 1959.
- The Organizing Committee of the Mexican Mathematics Olympiad, established in 1987, looks for mathematically talented young Mexicans.
- The "Sotero Prieto Prize" was established in 1991.

- The Society published from shortly after it was founded with the Wiskundig Genootschap appearing in 1782.
- In 1856 the Archief first appeared and it 1875 it became the Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde and was distributed to all members of the Society.
- Pieter Hendrik Schoute was an editor of this journal from 1898 until his death in 1923.
- He was also a founding editor of another Dutch Mathematical Society Journal Revue semestrielle des publications mathematique from 1893, when the journal was founded, again until his death in 1923.
- In more recent times L E J Brouwer, J A Schouten and T J Stieltjes have been important figures, and the Society published Stieltjes' Collected works in two volumes in 1914 and 1918, and Brouwer's Collected works in two volumes in 1975 and 1976.
- A major event for the Society was hosting the International Congress of Mathematicians in Amsterdam in 1954 at which Kunihiko Kodaira and Jean-Pierre Serre were awarded Fields Medals.
- By 1965 the monthly meetings of the Society were becoming less well attended despite the increased membership of the Society.

- The original Society was named the Sofia Physical and Mathematical Society when it was founded on 14 February 1898.
- The University of Sofia is the oldest establishment of higher education in Bulgaria and had been set up in Sofia in 1888.
- This followed the ending of Ottoman rule in Bulgaria in 1878, and Sofia being designated the Bulgarian capital in the following year.
- The aims of the original Society are given in [',' S Grozdev, Union of Bulgarian Mathematicians, European Mathematical Society Newsletter 31 (March, 1999), 20-21.','1].
- It recognised this by changing its name to the Bulgarian Physical and Mathematical Society in 1938.

- Imshenetskii left Kharkov and went to St Petersburg where he succeeded in founding the St Petersburg Mathematical Society in 1890.
- However Aleksandr Mikhailovich Lyapunov, a former student of Chebyshev, moved from St Petersburg to Kharkov in 1885 and he remained there for 17 years.
- During this time he played a leading role in running the Society and presented 27 reports to the monthly meetings [',' I V Ostrovskii, Kharkov Mathematical Society, European Mathematical Society Newsletter 34 (December, 1999), 26-27.','1]:-
.
- When Lyapunov left Kharkov in 1902, his former student Vladimir Andreevich Steklov became chairman of the Mathematical Society.
- The chairmanship of the Kharkov Mathematical Society was filled by Dmitrii M Sintsov who then held the position for forty years until 1946 [',' I V Ostrovskii, Kharkov Mathematical Society, European Mathematical Society Newsletter 34 (December, 1999), 26-27.','1]:-
.
- The mathematical activity of the Society was strongly influenced by Bernstein during the years from 1906 to 1933 that he spent in Kharkov.
- Naum Akhiezer was encouraged by Bernstein to leave Kiev and join the Kharkov School of function theory in 1933.
- Akhiezer filled the position of Director of the Institute of Mathematics vacated by Bernstein in 1933 and after Sintsov's death in 1946 he also became Chairman of the Kharkov Mathematical Society.
- In 1950 the Institute of Mathematics in Kharkov was closed by the Government, but the Mathematical Society continued to survive, largely thanks to the support of the newly opened Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering.
- Mathematical Society of Japan

.
- The Mathematical Society of Japan was founded in 1877 as the Tokyo Mathematics Society (Tokyo Sugaku Kaisha).
- In 1884, seven years after the Society was founded, it broadened itself by becoming the 'Tokyo Mathematical and Physical Society', still at this stage not considering itself as a national society.
- However, in 1918 it did recognise its status as a national society and again changed its name to become the 'Physico-Mathematical Society of Japan'.
- The present form of the 'Mathematical Society of Japan' came into existence in 1946 when the 'Physico-Mathematical Society of Japan' split into two separate societies, one whose primary interest was mathematics, namely 'The Mathematical Society of Japan' and one whose primary interest was physics, named 'The Physical Society of Japan'.
- The Prize was established in 1987 funded from donations by the family of Yasuo Akizuki and others.
- These prizes are named after Katahiro Takebe (1644-1739), a disciple of Seki Takakazu, who was noted for his creation of tables of trigonometric functions.
- Fujioka City, which is associated with Seki Takakazu (1642-1708), awards certificates of merit and bronze statues of Seki to the winners of this prize.
- The Takagi Lectures are named for Teiji Takagi (1875-1960), the creator of Class Field Theory and the person considered to be the father of modern mathematical research in Japan.
- The Mathematical Society of Japan International Research Institute was inaugurated in 1993 and one or two were held most years until 2006 when its scope was expanded and it was renamed the Mathematical Society of Japan Seasonal Institute and held annually.
- This journal, founded by the Mathematical Society of Japan in 1924, produces two issues per year.
- This journal was founded in 1948 and publishes research articles across a wide range of mathematical topics.
- It began publication in 1996.
- This is a book series published by the Mathematical Society of Japan, the first volumes appearing in 1983.

- The German invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939 followed by the Russian invasion on 17 September put a stop to any possible activities by the Society.
- In June 1941 Germany attacked the Soviet Union, putting Poland into a very strange position.
- One day in 1950 Society members turned up for one of the regular meetings to discover that the room they used had been sealed.
- In 1959 rules were relaxed and the Society could again operate openly.
- It renewed its activities of meetings, lectures, problem sessions, and joint meetings with other Polish student mathematics societies started up again (but stopped in 1976).

- Henry Dudeney produced a puzzle in 1902 which asked for a square to be dissected into squares, but there was a rectangle in this solution.
- Several mathematicians examined the problem of dissecting squares into squares including Max Dehn in 1903.
- Nikolai Luzin, in 1930, conjectured that it was impossible to dissect a square into a finite number of squares all of different sizes.
- The problem was solved by four members of the Trinity Mathematical Society, namely Rowland Leonard Brooks (1916-1993), Cedric Austin Bardell Smith (1917-2002), Arthur Harold Stone (1916-2000) and William Thomas Tutte (who has a biography in this archive).

- The three mathematicians most involved in the founding of the Society were: Rudolf Fueter, who had been appointed as professor of mathematics at the University of Basel in 1908; H Fehr, who was at the University of Geneva; and Marcel Grossmann, who had been appointed as professor of descriptive geometry at the Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule in Zurich in 1907.
- This project had been suggested at the time of the International Congress of Mathematicians which took place in Zurich in 1897.
- The proposal had been made in 1883 (on the centenary of Euler's death) by Ferdinand Rudio, who was at that time a lecturer in mathematics at the Eidgenossisches Polytechnikum (later called the Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule) in Zurich, and repeated by him at the Congress fourteen years later.
- Karl Geiser, from Zurich, was the President of the 1897 Zurich Congress and in 1907 he joined Rudio and others in approaching the Swiss Academy of Natural Sciences with the proposal to publish Euler's complete works.
- This, and other factors, led to the foundation of the Society in 1910 to bring pure mathematics into the foreground and to support its national and international promotion.
- Fueter was appointed as the first editor but the its aim was not at first to be international, rather (see [',' U Stammbach, Swiss Mathematical Society, European Mathematical Society Newsletter 33 (September, 1999), 18-20.','1]):-

.
- The Danish Mathematical Society, named Dansk Matematisk Forening, was founded in 1873.
- The original aim of the Society, as drawn up by the Board, was to (see for example [',' F D Pedersen (ed.), Dansk Matematisk Forening, 1923-1973 (Copenhagen, 1973).','1]):-
.
- All the three Board members were professors at the University of Copenhagen at the time the Society was created: Zeuthen had appointed as an extraordinary professor of mathematics in 1871; Petersen held the chair of mathematics; and Thiele was professor of astronomy.
- The first foreign speaker to the Society was Mittag-Leffler in 1900.
- The number of foreign speakers then grew and from 1921 an invitation was given every second year to a leading mathematician to give a series of lectures.
- The first series was given in 1921 by Hilbert.
- In this same year of 1921 the Society discussed whether it should join the International Mathematical Union, but there was strong opposition since the Union was actively discriminating against mathematicians from countries on the losing side in World War I.
- Matematisk Tidsskrift was founded in 1859 and Zeuthen became an editor in 1871.
- Shortly after he ended his editorial duties, the journal split into two parts in 1890.
- The Mathematical Society took over the publication of these journals in 1919.
- This Union came about in September 1951.
- The first meeting of the editorial board was in May and the journal was first published in 1953.
- Although negotiations for the joint publication of Nordisk Matematisk Tidskrift took a little longer to finalise, it first appeared in 1953.
- The Danish Mathematical Society was established in 1952 and the statutes changed from those of the Mathematical Society.
- The new statutes are given in full in [',' F D Pedersen (ed.), Dansk Matematisk Forening, 1923-1973 (Copenhagen, 1973).','1].
- In [',' B Branner, Danish Mathematical Society : Dansk Matematisk Forening, European Mathematical Society Newsletter 35 (March, 2000), 14-15.','3] Branner writes of the changes to the activities of the Society in the years following 1954 when more mathematical seminars were organised by individual Danish university mathematics departments, and fewer by the Danish Mathematical Society:-

- The Royal Society of Edinburgh was founded in 1783.
- The Society for the Improvement of Medical Knowledge was founded in Edinburgh in 1731 and Maclaurin became one of its members.
- In 1737 the broader Society was formed with the full title "Edinburgh Society for Improving Arts and Sciences and particularly Natural Knowledge".
- This Club was founded in 1716 nearly ten years before Maclaurin was appointed to the University of Edinburgh, and it was a Club which suited Maclaurin with its mixture of congenial fellowship and the aim of its members in pursuing knowledge.

- The beginning of the Royal Society of Edinburgh was described in the first volume of the Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh published in 1788.
- In 1810 the Society purchased 42 George Street, and it occupied this building until 1826 when the Royal Institution Building on Princes Street was completed.
- William Thomson, later Baron Kelvin of Largs, was President from 1873 to 1878 and again from 1886 to 1890.
- From 1890 to 1895 Thomson was President of the Royal Society of London, then, this time as Lord Kelvin, he was President of the Royal Society of Edinburgh for a third time from 1895 until his death in 1907.
- Two others from our archive held the office of President: D'Arcy Thompson from 1934 to 1939, followed by Edmund Whittaker from 1939 to 1945.
- Three mathematicians from our archive served the Royal Society of Edinburgh as General Secretaries: Playfair from 1798 to 1819, Tait from 1879 to 1901, and Chrystal from 1901 to 1912.
- Aitken was Vice-President for six years, namely from 1948 to 1951 and then again from 1956 to 1959.
- Joseph Wedderburn was elected a Fellow in 1903 when he was 21 years of age making him one of the youngest Fellows ever elected.
- It is worth noting that Joseph Wedderburn's brother, Sir Ernest Wedderburn, served the Society as Treasurer for ten years from 1937 to 1947.

- The Trinity College Dublin Mathematical Society was founded following a meeting on 12 December 1923.
- Charles Henry Rowe (1893-1943) had been born in Cork, studied for his bachelor's degree at Cork, then received his M.A.
- from Trinity College, Dublin in 1917.
- He won a fellowship of Trinity College, Dublin, in 1920 and held this until his death.
- In 1921 he was appointed Donegal Lecturer in Mathematics at Trinity College and after a while, the Erasmus Smith Chair of Mathematics being vacant, he was made acting professor.
- Charles Henry Rowe became Erasmus Smith Professor of Mathematics at Trinity College, Dublin, in 1926.
- One of the students at this inaugural meeting was Ernest Thomas Sinton Walton (1903-1995).
- Walton, born in Abbeyside, Dungarvan, County Waterford, won a scholarship to study mathematics and physics at Trinity College, Dublin, and began his studies there in 1922.
- After graduating with a Master's Degree in 1927 he studied for his doctorate in physics at Trinity College, Cambridge.
- He was awarded his doctorate in 1931 and remained at Cambridge until 1934 when he returned to Ireland as a fellow of Trinity College, Dublin.
- He was appointed Erasmus Smith Professor of Natural and Experimental there in 1946.
- He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1951 for his work on particle-accelerators giving experimental verification of atomic structure.
- In 1931 the Dublin University Mathematical Society moved into its own rooms in House No.
- 7 and later, in 1944, it moved into No.
- 39 to the room which it occupied until August 1991 when the Society moved, with the Department, to Westland Row.

- He entered Trinity College, Dublin, in 1881 and obtained a Fellowship in 1889.
- In 1910 he was appointed Professor of Natural Philosophy.
- He retired from the Chair in 1926 when he was succeeded by his former pupil, Dr J L Synge.
- In 1909 he married Margaret Barker, daughter of the late Col.

.
- The Spanish Society of Applied Mathematics, in Spanish 'La Sociedad Espanola de Matematica Aplicada' (SEMA or SeMA) gives as its date of foundation the year 1991.
- In some senses this date is too early since the Society was not formally registered until 1993 but, on the other hand, the date is somewhat too late in the sense that moves to found the Society began in 1988.
- A number of decisions were taken, the most significant being the decision that the next Congress, which was to be in 1989, would be XI Spanish Congress of Differential Equations and Applications - I Congress of Applied Mathematics known by XI CEDYA - I CMA.
- The XI CEDYA - I CMA meeting was held in September 1989 in Fuengirola (Malaga) organised by the Universidad de Malaga, After the XI CEDYA - I CMA meeting, Antonio Valle wrote to the members of the Commission suggesting that various applied mathematics research groups should be integrated into the next congress which would be XII CEDYA - II CMA to be held in September 1991 in Oviedo, organised by the Universidad de Oviedo.
- On 2 September 1991 a letter, signed by A Bermudez, J I Diaz, A Linan, J M Sanz Serna, C Simo and A Valle was widely circulated inviting everyone who was interested to join their initiative of founding 'La Sociedad Espanola de Matematica Aplicada' (SEMA).
- Included with the letter was a registration form for signing up to be a member of the Society, with a deadline for registration given as 15 October 1991.
- This is considered the date of founding of the Society and explains the given date of 1991 as the date of its founding.
- He was awarded his doctorate in 1965 by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid for his thesis Problemas de control optimo en ecuaciones diferenciales abstractas de evolucion.
- Antonio Valle Sanchez [',' C Pares, C Vazquez and F Coquel, Preface, Advances in Numerical Simulation in Physics and Engineering (Springer, 2014), viii.','1]:-

- was the founder of a very large Spanish community of Numerical Methods in Partial Differential Equations that grew up from the three universities in which he was a Professor: Santiago de Compostela (1967-1973), Sevilla (1973-1984), and Malaga (1984-).
- The French government made Antonio Valle a knight of the National Order of Merit in 1997.
- It was renamed SeMA Journal with the numbering continuing, so the first with the new name was Issue No 53 in 2011.

- The next was held in Penang in 1974 followed by Bandung in 1976.
- There had been the "Mathematics Study Group", followed by the "Mathematics Learning Group" and then, in 1973, the "Mathematics Interest Association" had been founded by Slamet Dajono.
- Slamet Dajono (born in Tulungagung on 24 June 1927) did his doctoral studies in mathematics in 1962-64 and became a lecturer at the State University of Surabaya.
- Discovering that there was a "Mathematics Interest Association" in Surabaya encouraged Lee Peng Yee who returned to Bandung and encouraged those at the Bandung Institute of Technology to organise the first Indonesian National Mathematics Conference there in 1976 which was held in parallel with the Southeast Asian Mathematical Society Conference.

- Serbian Academy of Sciences
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The Serbian Academy of Sciences was founded on 1 November 1886 as the Serbian Royal Academy.
- However this was established following the suspension of an earlier Society and we should go back to the Society of Serbian Letters founded in 1842 to understand the events which led to the foundation of the Academy.
- In 1830 the Ottoman government granted Serbia full autonomy but internal dissension followed.
- He was forced to abdicate in 1839 but gangs of bandits and lawlessness continued to create widespread problems.
- It was in these difficult circumstances that Jovan Sterija Popovic and Atanasije Nikolic began in September 1841 to work towards founding the Society of Serbian Letters which formally existed from 31 May 1842.
- In 1842 the national assembly elected Alexander as ruler.
- In 1844 a series of laws were introduced concerning the administration and the education system in Serbia and the Society was able to recommence its work in August 1844.
- Alexander was deposed in 1859 and Milos Obrenovic was brought back but he died in 1860 and was succeeded by his son Mihailo Obrenovic.
- In 1863 the Society of Serbian Letters wanted to make Garibaldi a member and the resulting dispute between the Society and the Minister of Education led to Mihailo Obrenovic suspending it on 27 January 1864.
- The Serbian Learned Society, like the previous Society, became involved in a dispute with the Minister of Education and was suspended on 13 May 1886.
- The Serbian Royal Academy was created by a law passed on 1 November 1886 and the Academy was given the library, collections, and property of the Serbian Learned Society.
- The Minister of Education saw that the only solution was to merge the two, which he did in 1892.
- In 1954 new laws concerning scientific activity altered the way the Academy operated.
- New Zealand Mathematical Society
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The Royal Society of New Zealand began its existence as the New Zealand Institute which was set up by an act of parliament in 1867 for the study of science, art, philosophy and literature.
- The name was changed to Royal Society of New Zealand in 1933 with royal assent and an Act of Parliament, and in 1965 the Society became more science oriented, adding Social Sciences and Technology.
- This was discussed at the first two New Zealand Mathematics Colloquia in 1966 and 1967 when it was decided to approach the Royal Society of New Zealand to set up the necessary committee.
- The first meeting of the committee took place in Wellington on 15 December 1967 when Simon Bernau was elected as chairman, and a constitution was agreed.
- C J Seelye, Head of the Mathematics Department at Victoria, wrote to the Royal Society of New Zealand in a letter dated 4 September 1972 passing on a recommendation from a staff meeting [',' M Carter, The National Committee for Mathematics (1967-1996), Newsletter of the New Zealand Mathematical Society 88 (August 2003).','1]:-
.
- The Royal Society of New Zealand forwarded Seelye's letter to Cecil Segedin, acting chairman of the National Committee for Mathematics, who asked David Vere-Jones to present a detailed proposal to the Committee for a New Zealand Mathematics Society together with a draft constitution [',' M Carter, The National Committee for Mathematics (1967-1996), Newsletter of the New Zealand Mathematical Society 88 (August 2003).','1]:-
.
- Kevin Broughan takes up the story at this point, with the National Committee for Mathematics report being passed to the Colloquium Business Meeting held at the University of Waikato in 1973.
- A working party consisting of David Vere-Jones, Donald Joyce and Kevin Broughan was elected to make a specific proposal which was considered and approved at the next meeting in 1974.
- He was elected an Honorary Life Member at the first AGM in 1975.
- At the first meeting in 1974, the new Society did elect two Honorary Life Members, Henry George Forder and Jim Campbell.
- The publishing situation was somewhat complicated by the fact that the Mathematical Chronicle had been founded in 1969 by some members of the University of Auckland Department of Mathematics and was already playing a major role in publishing mathematical research papers in New Zealand.
- As mentioned above, the Mathematical Chronicle had been published from 1969 onwards but in 1992, the University of Auckland Department of Mathematics and the New Zealand Mathematics Society came to an agreement to jointly publish the New Zealand Mathematical Journal.
- There is the Research Award, first awarded in 1990, the Early Career Research Award first awarded in 2006, the Kalman Prize for Best Paper first awarded in 2016, and the Aitken Student Prize first awarded in 1995.

- In 1923 Reissner was elected as vice president and these three were continually re-elected to their respective positions until 1933.
- The meetings from 1922 to 1933 (inclusive) were held in Leipzig, Marburg, Innsbruck, Dresden and Danzig (two meetings), Zurich, Bad Kissingen, Hamburg, Prague, Berlin, Bad Elster, Berlin, and Wurzburg.
- By 1933 the German Society for Applied Mathematics had around 450 members.
- In fact this worked somewhat to their advantage when the political climate changed in 1933.
- After the resignation of Reissner and von Mises in 1933, they were replaced by Trefftz and C Weber, respectively while Prandtl continued as president.
- For example he wrote to the Ministry on 15 June 1938 [','','1]:-

- This viewpoint, which, since the breakthrough of 1933, has fallen somewhat in the background, must generally be helped to become again valid if Germany does not wish to suffer damage.
- There was then a break from 1944 to 1949 when it was impossible to organise the annual meeting, but they recommenced in 1950 with a meeting in Darmstadt.
- Richard Grammel, from Stuttgart, had been elected vice-president of the Society in 1937 and held the post until the end of World War II in 1945.
- The Society essentially ceased to exist until operations restarted in 1950 and at this time Grammel was elected president.
- The structure of the Society changed in 1973 with posts of President, Vice-president, Secretary, Vice-secretary, and Treasurer.

- The American Mathematical Society started its existence as the New York Mathematical Society which was founded in 1888.
- The New York Mathematical Society certainly become a national society in name on 1 July 1894 when it renamed itself the American Mathematical Society.
- At first, of course, little changed as the Society was firmly based in New York and it held its first meeting as the American Mathematical Society in Brooklyn in 1894.
- He was vice-president of the Society from 1898 to 1901, an editor of the Transactions of the American Mathematical Society from 1899 to 1905, and President of the Society from 1903 to 1904.
- He was appointed professor at Columbia University in 1895, and in the following year he was appointed as Secretary of the American Mathematical Society, a post he held until 1920.
- This was not his only work for the American Mathematical Society for in 1897 he was appointed as editor-in-chief of the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, holding this position until just before his death in 1926.
- The first was held in Springfield, Massachusetts in the summer of 1895, the second at Buffalo, New York in the summer of 1896.
- The summer meeting at Buffalo in 1896 is memorable for the first colloquium of the Society.
- White's suggestion was supported by the Society and the first Colloquium speaker was James Pierpont of Yale who lectured at the summer meeting at Buffalo in 1896.
- By 1901 the American Mathematical Society had 357 members and in the previous year 112 papers were read at Society meetings.
- By 1902 156 papers were read and the Society had elected its first President who was not from the North East, namely Eliakim Moore.
- Matters came to a head in 1911 when the Chicago section complained bitterly about the place of the meeting at which Bocher would give his Presidential address.

.
- The Academy began to publish a journal, Ephemeriden, in 1670, which they dedicated to the Holy Roman emperor Leopold I.
- In 1677 Leopold awarded the Academy the title 'Sacri Romani Imperii Academia Naturae Curiosorum'.
- The reputation of the Academy continued to grow and in 1687 Leopold gave it numerous privileges as wll as yet a further new title 'Sacri Romani Imperii Academia Caesareo- Leopoldina Naturae Curiosorum'.

- Although Agmon is 95 years old today, he just joined the Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University in 1952.
- However, he told me, he believed that the Union had been established after the war of independence (which ended in 1949), so may be some time after 1950.
- The Israel Mathematical Union maintains contacts with other mathematical associations worldwide: it is a corporate member of the European Mathematical Society [since 1991], an associate member of the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and has a reciprocity membership agreement with the American Mathematical Society, and with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
- This prize was first awarded in 1977 and was, at that time, known as the Erdős Prize.
- The name was changed in 1996 to the Anna and Lajos Erdős Prize reflecting the original wish of Paul Erdős.

- He was awarded his Master's Degree in 1904 and, returning to Iceland, he applied for a vacant teacher position at the High School in Reykjavik where he had himself been a pupil a few years earlier.
- In 1909 he submitted his thesis to the University of Copenhagen and was awarded a doctorate, becoming the first Icelander to be awarded a doctorate in mathematics.
- But it was something he had been thinking about for a very long time for the first fundamentals of this material is found in an article he wrote in the same journal as a twenty-two year old in 1900.
- Danielsson agreed that the Society would participate in publishing these journals in 1951 and the two journals appeared in 1953.

- This was, however a reconstitution of the Academy, the origins of which go back to the reign of Alfonso el Sabio in the 13th century, to the Madrid Mathematical Academy of Phillip II, and also to the Academia Naturae curiosorum founded in 1657.
- The Madrid Mathematical Academy (Academia de Matematicas de Madrid) was founded in 1582 (some sources give the date 1575) by Phillip II of Spain.

- Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- Professor Ernst Mach was also very supportive and, in 1868, he suggested that the Society might wish to meet in one of his lecture theatres and have the use of one of his physics laboratories in which Society members could carry out any experimental work.
- In 1869 the Society was officially registered but now it was under the name Union of Czech Mathematicians.
- Publishing a journal was also high on the agenda and by the time the 10th anniversary of the Union came round in 1872 they could celebrate with launching the publication The Journal for the Cultivation of Mathematics and Physics.
- The Union continued to expand its operations outside Prague and it opened a number of branches, in particular one in Brno in 1911 and one in Bratislava in 1929.
- In 1919 it went into the business of publishing in a big way obtaining a licence to print, publish, and sell books.
- A National Assembly was formed and a new democratic constitution was adopted in 1920.
- In 1921 the Union of Czech Mathematicians changed its name to reflect its involvement in both mathematics and physics and renamed itself the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists.
- The Union purchased a house in 1930 and erected a new building to the rear of the house which was their bookshop and later the library.
- The Union moved into its new headquarters in 1938.
- Hitler's armies invaded on 14 March 1939 and Hitler installed his representative in Prague to run the country.
- In 1952 the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences was founded in Prague and a number of specialised institutions were attached to it including the Union of Czechoslovak Mathematicians and Physicists as the Union was now called.

- Spanish Mathematical Society
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The Spanish Mathematical Society, the Sociedad Matematica Espanola (later the Royal Spanish Mathematical Society, the Real Sociedad Matematica Espanola) was founded in 1911.
- For example Zoel Garcia de Galdeano (1846-1924) was professor of mathematics at various schools and institutes throughout Spain.
- In 1891 he founded the first Spanish mathematics journal El progresso Matematico.
- It stopped publishing in 1895 but was restarted in 1899, failing again after only one year.
- In 1907 the Board for Advanced Studies and Scientific Research, the Junta para Ampliacion de Estudios e Investigaciones (JAE), was founded.
- In 1908 the Spanish Association for the Advancement of Science, the Asociacion Espanola para el Progreso de la Ciencia (AEPC), was founded.
- At the first Congress of the AEPC it was proposed by Manuel Benitez y Parodi (1845-1911), a military general, that a mathematics society be founded and this led to the founding of the Spanish Mathematical Society in 1911.
- Manuel Benitez, Jose Echegaray y Eizaguirre (1832-1916) who was a civil engineer, and Julio Rey Pastor played a major role in establishing the Society.
- In May 1911 the Society published the first part of its journal, the Revista de la Sociedad Matematica Espanola.
- However, the journal suffered from the same problems that had forced the closure of El progresso Matematico in 1900.
- The problems came to a head in 1915 when Rey Pastor criticised senior members of the Society and argued that it was necessary for Spanish mathematics to become a part of the Europe wide mathematics scene.
- Rey Pastor had certainly played his part in supporting the journal, particularly in the period 1911-13, with a series of papers.
- Our discussion of the Revista has taken us up to 1917 but we should go back to 1915 for in that year, at the suggestion of the Spanish Mathematical Society, the Mathematical Laboratory and Seminar of the Board for Advanced Studies and Scientific Research was created.
- In 1916 Zoel Garcia de Galdeano who had founded the first failed Spanish mathematical journal became the second president of the Spanish Mathematical Society.
- It must have been a great sadness to him to see this second Spanish mathematical journal, the Revista, fail in 1917.
- With the Society in crisis, it was Rey Pastor who revitalised it in 1919.
- A new journal, the Revista Matematica Hispano-Americana, was founded in 1919 and this was mentioned by G A Miller in an article in Science in 1919.
- The second one was a result of the civil war, 1936-39, and in 1941 the Society was again re-established, this time by Franco's dictatorship.
- A third crisis in 1961 was followed by a fourth, very deep crisis, which began in 1990 and continued until the Society was again re-established in 1996.
- Revista Matematica Hispano-Americana which was founded by Rey Pastor in 1919 has continued to be published but it changed its name to Revista Matematica Iberoamericana in 1985 when it began again from Volume 1.
- Starting with Volume 28 (2012), Revista Matematica Iberoamericana has been printed and distributed by the Publishing House of the European Mathematical Society.
- The Society published the journal Gaceta Matematica beginning in 1949.
- La Gaceta de la Real Sociedad Matematica Espanola began publication in 1998, with 3 issues per volume per year.
- International Mathematical Union
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The International Mathematical Union traces its origins back to 1920.
- Wilson's proposal was accepted and in 1919 the International Research Council was founded and, in the following year, the International Mathematical Union was established.
- The series of International Congresses of Mathematicians had begun in Zurich in 1897 but no congress was held during World War I (1914-18).
- The first post World War I International Congress of Mathematicians was held in Strasbourg in 1920.
- In 1922, following the collapse of a bid from New York to hold the 1924 Congress, John Charles Fields made a bid to hold it in Toronto under the auspices of the International Mathematical Union.
- In 1925 the International Research Council invited Germany, Austria, Hungary and Bulgaria to join the Council and all associated Unions.
- In 1931 it was replaced by the International Council of Scientific Unions which had no restrictions on membership.
- Pincherle invited all mathematicians to the International Congress of Mathematicians to be held in 1928 in Bologna, Italy.
- An argument at the General Assembly of the International Mathematical Union during the International Congress of Mathematicians in Zurich in 1932 voted to suspend the Union and set up a Commission, chaired by Francesco Severi with Gaston Julia as vice-chairman, to discuss re-establishing it.
- Julia reported to the International Congress of Mathematicians at Oslo in 1936 that the recommendation was that the Union should not be re-established.
- Much of the groundwork was done during the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1950 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
- The International Mathematical Union was formally refounded in 1951 and the first General Assembly of the new International Mathematical Union was held in 1952.
- Mathematical Circle of Palermo

- National Academy of Sciences of Italy
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The National Academy of Sciences of Italy (the "Academy of Forty") was founded in 1782 as the 'Societa Italiana' by the mathematician Antonio Mario Lorgna.
- Two of these are Boscovich and Malfatti while the other two are Carlo Barletti (1735-1800) and Lazzaro Spallanzani (1729-1799).
- Over the following ten years discussions went on and by 1776 Lorgna and Malfatti were discussing Lorgna's "idea of forming an Academy for all Italian scholars".
- On 1 March 1781, Lorgna went ahead with his proposal sending out a circular letter to leading scientists.
- He published the first part of the 'Memorie', the Society's Memoirs, in 1782 the year the Society was founded in Verona.
- The Society, he wrote, "belongs to the whole of Italy, not just to a single city." Lorgna was the first President of the Societa Italiana, holding this role until his death in 1796.
- It is worth realising that this "Italian Society" was proposed by Lorgna about 100 years before the unification of Italy which took place in 1861.
- Originally set up in Verona, the Society relocated to Milan, then to Modena, and in 1875, when Rome was declared the capital of Italy, the headquarters of the Society moved there where it remains to this day.
- Here is a list of 28 Italian scientists who became members of the Societa Italiana, the "Academy of Forty", when it was founded in 1782.

.
- The Estonian Mathematical Society can trace its origins back to 1926.
- Although Estonia had been dominated by Russia for a long period, it had gained its independence in 1917 only to come under German control.
- In 1920 Estonia was again able to assert its independence.
- Tamme writes in [',' M Abel, 75 Years of the Estonian Mathematical Society, European Mathematical Society Newsletter 41 (September, 2001), 18-19.','1]:-
.
- On 17 June 1940 Soviet troops occupied the whole of Estonia and on 21 July the Estonian government, having little choice, adopted a resolution to join the USSR.
- Over 10,000 people were deported on the night of 13 June 1941 alone.
- Political events again intervened, for on 22 June 22 1941 Germany attacked the USSR, Estonians then attacked the occupying Soviet forces, largely defeating them before the German army took control of Estonia.
- These suggestions came to nothing, as did a more serious attempt to establish a mathematical society in 1983.
- A Soviet liberalization campaign in the late 1980s provided an opportunity and, in 1987, mathematicians achieved their aim.
- The first meeting of the Estonian Mathematical Society was held on 17 September in the same Festival Hall that the Academic Mathematical Society had held its first meeting in 61 years before.
- The 1987 meeting was attended by 118 members of the new Society together with 52 guests.
- Hungarian Academy of Sciences
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}

- The Hungarian Academy of Sciences was named the Hungarian Scholarly Society when it was founded in Pest in 1825.
- The Society published an Hungarian Mathematical Dictionary in 1834 but it failed to achieve the aims we have described [',' B Szenassy, History of Mathematics in Hungary until the 20th Century (Berlin-Heidelberg-New York, 1992).
- ','1]:-
.
- The publication of Euclid's Elements in Hungarian by the Society in 1832 was probably more significant.
- The first such foreign member was Babbage, elected in 1833, followed by Gauss and Poncelet in 1847 and John Herschel and Quetelet in 1858.
- The journal was split into two in 1859, then three covering different areas.
- The Academy hit real problems in 1849 following the Hungarian War of Independence.
- In that year the Hungarians had defeated the Habsburgs and declared Hungarian independence on 14 April.
- Following this a combined force from Russia and Austria retook the country and the Hungarian army surrendered on 13 August.
- This allowed the Academy to begin again to support ventures to strengthen Hungarian scholarship and, in 1860, a committee was set up to give special support to mathematics and natural science.
- In the Compromise of 1867 the Hungarian Kingdom and the Austrian Empire became independent states within the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.
- The Compromise led to rising standards of education in mathematics and the sciences and after pressure from the Academy, the Technical University of Budapest was set up from the polytechnic school in 1871.
- Warsaw Scientific Society

.
- With the Polish education system controlled by the Russian rulers, Dickstein decided to do what he could to promote a Polish education and he directed his own private school for ten years beginning in 1878.
- In 1884 he was one of the two founders of a series of mathematics and physics textbooks which were written in Polish.
- He also continued publication of Circle of Polish Mathematicians which had begun publishing in St Petersburg in 1880.
- Kuratowski, thinking about the development of Polish mathematics, notes in [',' K Kuratowski, Half a century of Polish mathematics (Warsaw, 1973).','1] the importance of the publications:-
.
- In 1903 Dickstein was a founder of the Warsaw Scientific Society and he was important in the development of the Polish Mathematical Society.
- Despite the fact that the Polish Mathematical Society was set up in 1919, the Warsaw Scientific Society continued to play a major role in mathematics.
- For example in 1928 Sierpinski was elected vice-chairman of the Warsaw Scientific Society.
- Australian Academy of Science

- The Australian Academy of Science was founded on 16 February 1954 by Queen Elizabeth II.
- In 1951 a meeting of leading scientists, technologists and industrialists was held in Canberra to discuss the future of science and technology in Australia.
- A council of 10 was set up with Professor Oliphant as the first President.
- Thomas Cherry was the third President of the Academy, serving in that role from 1961 to 1964.

- The Moran Medal is named for Patrick Alfred Pierce Moran (1917-1988), an Australian statistician who made significant contributions to probability theory and its application to population and evolutionary genetics.
- The Hannan Medal is named for Edward James Hannan (1921-1994), an Australian statistician who is the co-discoverer of the Hannan-Quinn information criterion.
- For example it sponsored the First International Conference on the Theory of Groups held in 1965 and the Second International Conference on the Theory of Groups held in Canberra in August 1973.
- Chinese Mathematical Society
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The reason is that the Chinese Society for Mathematical Sciences was founded in 1929 and carried out the same functions as the Chinese Mathematical Society until 1936.
- The first President of the Society was Hu T-F who appointed on the foundation of the Society in 1935.
- At first the Society prospered and in 1936 it began publication of two journals, one a research publication, the other a low level popular one.
- By 1938 the country was divided between the part controlled by Japan and the remaining Free China which refused to submit.
- The Chinese Mathematical Society was no longer able to operate and although in some sense it continued to exist, from 1938 to 1945 it could not function.
- Japan surrendered in 1945 but China's problems did not end for the country suffered a civil war for four years between Nationalists and Communists.
- Attempts were made to refound the Chinese Mathematical Society and in 1948 it began again to function in support of mathematics throughout China.
- Hu T-F, the first President ended his term of office in 1948.
- The Communist victory led to the creation of the People's Republic of China on 1 October 1949.
- The Chinese Mathematical Society rapidly expanded under the next President Hua Loo-Keng who was appointed in 1951 and served until 1983.

- The Union of Slovak Mathematicians and Physicists split off from the old Union in 1969 at the fifth congress of the Union of Czechoslovak Mathematicians and Physicists.
- The following description of the Union is taken from [',' Union of Slovak Mathematicians and Physicists website.','1].
- It was founded in 1969 as part of the "Union of Czechoslovak Mathematicians and Physicists", established in 1921 from the original 'Association for Free Lectures in Mathematics and Physics', founded in 1862.
- Following this, they have been involved in the organisation of the Conference on Differential and Difference Equations held in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2017.

.
- In 1797 the first volume of the Academy's journal appeared.
- This first volume was named Memoirs of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Lisbon and contained papers written from the founding of the Academy up to 1788.
- The second volume of the Memoirs appeared in 1799 but was renamed Memoirs of Mathematics and Physics of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Lisbon.
- For example, Spain invaded in 1801 and a short war followed, then a more serious conflict occurred in 1807 when Napoleon invaded.
- The Academy of Sciences of Lisbon managed to operate by 1812 when the third volume of the Memoirs appeared.
- After a Civil War in 1832-34, a period of stability in Portugal allowed educational reform in 1836 but the 1846-47 Civil War again led to turbulence.
- In May 1851 a military putsch led to longer term political stability.
- The Academy of Sciences of Lisbon was reorganised in 1851 and this led to a marked increase in mathematical research in the country.
- The 1851 Statutes required the foundation of two new publications, a bulletin for the proceedings of the meetings of the Academy and a journal which would contain scientific papers which could not be published in the Academy's Memoirs.
- The Annaes de Sciencias e Lettras was established in 1857 but was quickly discontinued in 1858.
- The Jornal de Sciencias Mathematicas, Physicas e Naturaes was established in 1866 and continued to be published until 1923.

- The National Academy of Sciences of Belarus was founded in Minsk on 1 January 1929 (as the Belarusian Academy of Sciences), the date being chosen as it was the tenth anniversary of the founding of the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic.
- An earlier organisation, the Institute of Belarusian Culture, had been established in 1922 and a decree made on 13 October 1928 set up the Belarusian Academy of Sciences by reorganising the Institute.
- In 1936 the name of the Academy was changed to the Academy of Sciences of Byelorussian SSR.
- Russia and ten other former Soviet republics declared themselves independent on 21 December 1991 and founded the Commonwealth of Independent States.
- The USSR legally ceased to exist on 31 December 1991.
- In 1991 the Academy of Sciences of Byelorussian SSR became the Academy of Sciences of Belarus, adopting its present name in 1997.
- The Academy had a staff of 128 when it was first established but by 1941 this had risen to about 750 with nine Institutes.
- By the end of the war the staff was less than half of the 1941 total with around 360 staff in post.
- Following the end of World War II the Academy was rebuilt, with eight Institutes beginning work in 1945 increasing to 29 by 1951.
- The Institute of Mathematics of the Academy was founded in Minsk in 1959.
- Their journal Doklady Akademii Nauk BSSR was renamed in 1951 Akademiya Nauk Belarusi.

- The Armenian Mathematical Union was founded in 1991 but there were societies in Armenia dealing with mathematics before that date.
- There was an informal Union of Young Mathematicians that organised meetings at which members reported on their research and even organised conferences, the first being in 1982 on 'Modern problems of mathematical physics'.
- It was founded on 16 May 1919 and it established the Department of Physics and Mathematics in the Faculty of Social Sciences in 1924.
- In 1933 a Physico-mathematical Faculty was set up but in 1959 this was split into two faculties, namely a Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics and a Faculty of Physics.
- A separate Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Informatics was set up in 1972.
- The main aims of the Union are given in [',' Armenian Mathematical Union website.','1] which we now give in a slightly modified form:-

- The Irish Mathematical Society (Cumann Matamaitice na heireann) came into being on 14 April 1976 when a constitution, based on that of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, was accepted by a meeting held in Trinity College Dublin following a symposium organised by the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies.
- This informal group, which met in the late 1960's and consisted of J Kennedy (University College Dublin), F Holland (University College Cork), D McAlister (Queens University Belfast), and T West (Trinity College Dublin), decided in 1967 to circulate the Irish mathematical community, north and south, to determine the possibility of organised research symposia or summer schools on selected topics.
- The success of this Summer School led to further Summer Schools each year from 1971.
- These were 'Complex Function Theory' (1971), 'Numerical Analysis' (1972), 'Group Theory and Computation' (1973), 'Spectral Theory' (1974) and a symposium on 'Harmonic Analysis and Topological Algebra' in December 1975 at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies.

- Croatian Mathematical Society
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The Croatian Mathematical Society was founded in 1990.
- However the Society has a much longer history than that date would suggest since it was on 18 April 1990 that the Croatian Society of Mathematicians and Physicists made the decision to split into two separate societies, namely the Croatian Mathematical Society and the Croatian Physics Society.
- The Croatian Society of Mathematicians and Physicists had been founded in 1949 but long before that there had been a mathematics section of the Croatian Natural History Society, itself founded in 1885, which was the beginnings of the Mathematical Society.
- The Croatian Natural History Society was founded in 1885 in Zagreb with a view to developing and popularising the natural sciences.
- From 1886 to 1938, the Society also published Glasnik Hrvatskog naravoslovnog društva, in which research papers on mathematics appeared.
- The Croatian Natural History Society founded the Mathematical-Physical Section in 1945 and a year later, the Department of Mathematics and Physics in the University of Zagreb was established, which started organising workshops for teachers and popular lectures on mathematics and physics.
- The Croatian Society of Mathematicians and Physicists was founded in 1949 and existed until 1990.
- When the Society was founded in 1949 Croatia was a federal unit in Yugoslavia so the Croatian Society became a member of the Alliance of Mathematicians, Physicists and Astronomers of Yugoslavia.
- In 1953, summer courses in mathematics and physics for high school teachers began to be organised, which later developed into the present 'Seminars for Elementary and High School Teachers'.
- The journal Glasnik matematički began publication in 1966 and has continued following the split and the foundation of the Croatian Mathematical Society.
- Now before looking at the events of 1990, we should note that the Croatian Society of Mathematicians and Physicists was most active in Zagreb.

- On the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660 those who were living in London resumed their meetings that had been discontinued in 1658, and others who had been at Oxford joined them; by the end of the year they had a number of their friends having similar interests resolved to constitute themselves a Society of Philosophers which they succeeded in doing.
- Lyons writes [',' H Lyons, The Royal Society 1660-1940 (Cambridge, 1944).','7]:-
.
- By the summer of 1661 the members were discussing the name of the Society and how they might obtain a Royal Charter of incorporation.
- By the meeting of 18 September 1661 they had agreed a draft Charter and by the 16 October Moray and Neile had:-
.
- The Charter of Incorporation passed the Great Seal on 15 July 1662 and the Royal Society of London officially existed from that date with the name of 'The Royal Society'.
- By the meeting of the Society on 20 May 1663, 150 Fellows had been elected.
- The number rose from the original 150 to over 200 by 1675 but then dropped to around 100 by 1690.
- The numbers then fell rapidly to around 450 by 1880.
- Another related topic was the pendulum clock, and Huygens, who was the first foreign scientist to visit and work with the Society which he did in 1661, was the leading expert.

- Euler accepted, arrived in Berlin on 25 July 1741, and became Head of the Observatory of the Academy later that year.
- By 1743 Frederick's reorganisation was complete and the Academy was given the title of Academie Royale des Sciences et Belles Lettres.
- The first session of the new Academy took place in January 1744 and, on 12 May 1746, Maupertuis was officially appointed as president of the Berlin Academy.
- Euler was appointed as Director of the Mathematics Section of the Academy and, after Maupertuis' death in 1759, Euler took charge of the Academy (although he was never given the title of President).
- The king also charged Euler with practical problems, such as the project in 1749 of correcting the level of the Finow Canal ..
- The book [',' W Knobloch, Leonhard Eulers Wirken an der Berliner Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1741-1766, Studien zur Geschichte der Akademie der Wissenschaften der DDR 11 (Berlin, 1984).','1] includes fascinating detail of Euler's day to day life at the Academy.

- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (Det Norske Videnskaps-Akademi) was founded at Oslo in 1857.
- It should not be confused with the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters (Det Kongelige Norske Videnskabers Selskab) which is a much older society founded in Trondheim in 1760.
- The first university in Norway was the Royal Frederick University which was established in Christiania (later renamed Oslo) in 1811.
- The first serious attempt to establish an academy in Christiania was made in 1841 but there were difficulties such as a lack of financial support and a general feeling that at the time Norway did not have a sufficiently broad scientific base to merit the founding of an academy.
- A scientific meeting which took place in Christiania in 1844, however, proved an important step [',' G Hestmark, ’’A primitive country of rocks and people’’ - R I Murchison’s Silurian campaign in Norway, 1844, Norsk Geologisk Tidsskrift 88 (2) (2008), 117-141.','5]:-
.
- The meeting, held in Christiania 11-18th July 1844, was the first scientific congress ever to take place in Norway.
- This congress gave Christiania the confidence to move forward and the Professor of Medicine, Frantz Christian Faye (1806-1890), came up with both the initiative and the finance to found the 'Videnskabsselskabet i Christiania' which was inaugurated on 3 May 1857.
- Later 'Christiania' was changed to 'Kristiania' after the city made the change in 1877.
- In the 20th century the name was changed again, this time to 'The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters of Kristiania', and in 1924 'Kristiania' was removed from the name, only shortly before the city of Kristiania was renamed Oslo.
- The first volume was published in 1881.
- It was the geologist Waldemar Christofer Brøgger (1851-1940) who turned round the finances of the Academy.
- His Royal Society of London obituary states [',' C E Tilly, Waldemar Christopher Brogger, 1851-1940, Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society 3 (10) (1941), 502-517.','7]:-
.
- Beyond the realm of science his wide interests and public spirit were extended in the service of his colleagues and countrymen as the first Rector of Oslo University (1907-1911) and as member of the Storthing (1907-1909), and it is due largely to his personality, initiative and outstanding executive ability that numerous public funds were established for education and research.
- Hans Rasmus Astrup (1831-1898) was a highly successful businessman who became the Minister of Labour in the Norwegian Government in 1885.
- The Villa was completed in 1887 and after Astrup's death in 1898, two of his daughters, Ebba and Elisabeth, inherited it.
- Brøgger acquired the Villa for the Academy from the daughters in 1911 thus consolidating its identity as a cultural institution and driving force for Norwegian research development.
- It was through pressure from the Academy that the basic research-oriented Norwegian Research Council was set up in 1949.
- The establishment of the Centre for Basic Research at the Norwegian Academy of Sciences in 1992 was an important step.
- The Kavli Prize for each of the three scientific prizes consists of 1 million dollar and is awarded every two years.

.
- The British Association for the Advancement of Science was founded in 1831.
- He is perhaps best known for his invention of the kaleidoscope in 1816.
- He had been elected to the Royal Society in 1815 but felt that that organisation was too elitist and conservative to fully support the development of science in Britain.
- Brewster arranged the first meeting of the new Association to be held in York beginning on 26 September 1831.
- The result was a fascinating collection of addresses by presidents such as Sylvester in 1869 Cayley in 1883, and Forsyth in 1897.

- The Society rapidly gained international status, and two years after it was founded, in 1867, it instituted a category of honorary foreign member.
- Only a donation of 63;1000 by Rayleigh in 1874 allowed the Society to become financially secure.
- The quantity and quality of papers published in the Proceeding was impressive, over 900 papers appearing by 1900.
- It was awarded once every three years, the first award being made to Cayley in 1884.
- He was President in 1926-28 and again in 1939-41.
- He pressed for the Society to expand its range of mathematical publications and in 1926 the Journal of the London Mathematical Society was founded.
- The Society further expanded its list of journals in 1969 when the Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society began publication.
- Most recently, in 1997, the electronic journal the London Mathematical Society Journal of Computation and Mathematics was set up.
- The Society moved into a building in Russell Square in 1998, which was named De Morgan House.

- By 1882 the Society had resumed functioning after a short break.
- In 1884 the areas covered by the Society were extended to include some natural sciences, but at this stage mathematics and the physical sciences were still not among the Society's interests.
- On 6 March 1911 the Bulgarian Learned Society changed its name to the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
- The Academy began to construct a new building in 1925 and three years later the building was completed and the General Assembly met in the new building for the first time on 24 June 1928.
- New statutes were drawn up and accepted but in 1941 a dispute arose when the government demanded that the Scientific Secretary of the Academy should be appointed by the government and not elected by the Academy.
- In 1944 the Academy buildings were damaged by shelling during World War II and the Academy had to suspend its activities.
- Reorganisation in 1945 saw plans put in place to found a number of new scientific institutes as part of the Academy.
- The first institutes were set up in 1946 and the Institute of Mathematics was founded in 1947.
- It was renamed Institute of Mathematics and Informatics in 1995.

- The idea for a mathematical society in the United States came during a six month visit T S Fiske, a graduate student at Columbia College, made to England in 1887 when he visited Cambridge.
- He arrived with letters of introduction to Cayley, Glaisher, Forsyth and Darwin written by G L Rives, a trustee of Columbia College who had been a wrangler at Cambridge in 1872.
- Fiske writes [',' R C Archibald, A semicentennial history of the American Mathematical Society, 1888-1938 (New York, 1980).','2]:-

.
- It is ernestly desired that you will assist in its organisation by being present at its first meeting hereby called for Thanksgiving Day at 10 a.m.
- The Bulletin appeared in 1891, with Fiske as editor-in-chief, and he was able to write round a wide range of university and college professors and others with mathematical interests encouraging them not only to join the Society but also to subscribe to the Bulletin.
- By the end of 1891 his effort had increased the membership to over 200.

- The Kazan Physico-mathematical Society can trace its origins back to 1863.
- The first attempt to create the Scientific Society at Kazan University was made by N I Lobachevsky in 1830 when he was the Rector of Kazan University.
- Lobachevsky transformed the university journal Kazanskii Vestnik into the journal in which the scientific papers were published (in 1829 he published in this journal his first paper on his discovery of non-Euclidean geometry) and in 1834 he organized the purely scientific journal Uchenye Zapiski Kazanskogo Universiteta (Transactions of the Kazan University), where he also published his papers on non-Euclidean geometry.
- In the Society of Naturalists in 1884 the physico- mathematical section was organized by the astronomer M A Kowalski and the mathematican A V Vasilev.
- In 1890 the physico- mathematica section was transformed into the Kazan Physico- mathematical Society.

- In 1916 the Academy established the National Research Council which was designed to coordinate the activities of scientists and engineers in a wide variety of different situations such as universities, industry, and government.
- Although set up because of the war, after the World War I ended in 1918, it was seen to provide a valuable service in times of peace as well as in times of war and so the National Research Council continued to exist.
- In 1956 and again in 1993 the remit of the National Research Council was broadened.
- Moscow Mathematical Society

- It no longer exists today, since it is one of the societies that merged to form the 'Societe Francaise de Statistique' (French Statistical Society) in 1997.
- Beginning in 1860, the Society published the Journal de la Societe de Statistique de Paris (Journal of the Statistical Society of Paris) which has transferred to the French Statistical Society and is the main publication of the present Society.
- Petrograd Physico-Mathematical Society
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The St Petersburg Mathematical Society was founded in 1890 on the initiative of V G Imshenetskii.
- The history of that Society from the time of its founding until 1921 when the Society began to function again under the name Petrograd Physico-Mathematical Society is described in the article:
.
- Note that St Petersburg had been renamed Petrograd by 1921 which partly explains the different names.
- Vassiliev was President of the Petrograd Physico-Mathematical Society from the time of its founding in 1921 until 1923 when N M Gyunter was elected to this role.
- This phase of the Society's existence lasted from 1921 until 1930.
- From the time that he was elected to to Academy in 1910, Steklov had pressed for the publication of a mathematical journal.
- At last, with the Society flourishing, he achieved in aims in 1926 when the Journal of the Leningrad Physical and Mathematical Society was founded (by this time St Petersburg or Petrograd had been renamed Leningrad).
- One part of the journal appeared in each of the four years from 1926 to 1929, these four parts making up two volumes of two parts each.
- In the late 1920s Russian intellectuals were finding it increasingly difficult, although for a while the Society continued to flourish with 102 members in 1927.
- The president of the Society was N M Gyunter [',' A M Vershik, The St Petersburg Mathematical Society, European Mathematical Society Newsletter 10 (December, 1993), 21-23.','2]:-
.
- In 1930 Smirnov, who was vice-president, proposed that the Society be closed down.
- This was almost certainly done to save Gyunter from the fate which befell others, and in this it was successful since Gyunter was able to continue his mathematical work in Leningrad until his death in 1941.
- In 1953 he organised the Leningrad Mathematical Seminar which, until 1959, operated as the unofficial Leningrad Mathematical Society.
- In 1959 it became possible to formally reconstitute the Leningrad Mathematical Society and, on 13 April 1959, the Ministry of Higher Education accepted the constitution of the Society.
- The Society had 49 members when it was officially reconstituted in 1959 and by 1962 this number had risen to 92.
- Numbers continued to rise with 123 members by 1973, 150 by 1978, 209 by 1984 and 224 by 1985.
- In 1990 the name of the Society was changed from the Leningrad Mathematical Society back to the St Petersburg Mathematical Society.
- Finnish Academy of Science
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The Finnish Academy of Science and Letters (Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia - Academia Scientiarum Fennica) was founded in 1908.
- In 1809 Finland gained independence from Sweden but was under Russian protection and had a government chosen by the Russian emperor.
- This was the position when the Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters was founded in 1838.
- However, after a bitter struggle of supporters of the Finnish language, both Finnish and Swedish were placed on an equal footing as official languages in 1902.
- However Russian had been made a third official language in 1900.
- It is against this background that there was a need for a Finnish speaking academy, and hence the foundation of the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters in 1908.
- Accademia dei Lincei
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.

- Galileo joined the Academy in 1609.
- Della Porta joined the Academy on 1610 and Valerio in 1612.
- Cesi died in 1630 and the Academy closed down.
- In 1745 a group of scientist in Rimini refounded the Academy, but it only functioned for a very short time.
- Padre Feliciano Scarpellini founded a private Academy in Rome in 1795 which he named the 'Lincei'.
- Pope Gregory XVI suggested in 1838 refounding the Academy as 'Accademia Pontificia dei Nuovi Lincei' (The Pontifical Academy of the New Lynxes), but this did not happen until 1847 when Pope Pius IX revived the Academy.
- Revolts occurred in the Papal States in 1849 and a short-lived Roman Republic was established.
- However, the Papal States of Emilia, Umbria, and Marche voted to join the Italian kingdom after Austria's defeat in 1859 then, when French troops withdrew from Rome in 1870, Italian forces took the area around the Vatican.
- In 1936 it was renamed the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.
- Bellavitis became a member of the Accademia dei Lincei in 1879, D'Ovidio was elected in 1883, Bianchi in 1893, and Beltrami became a member of the Accademia dei Lincei, serving as president of the Academy in 1898.
- We mention a few others such as Ricci-Curbastro who was elected in 1899, and Castelnuovo who served as President for many years.
- Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- One of the first to make an active move towards bringing mathematicians working in these areas together was James Lighthill when he organised the British Theoretical Mechanics Colloquium at the University of Manchester in 1959.
- The story of how this and other moves led to the founding of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications in 1964 was told in an article by John Theodore Combridge.
- In 1990 the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications was awarded a Royal Charter which led to it being able to grant someone the title Chartered Mathematician.

- It was founded in 1895 by Pieter Molenbroek and Shunkichi Kimura.
- However, the quaternions had been discovered by William Rowan Hamilton in 1843 and his book Elements of Quaternions, published posthumously in 1866, was at that time the main textbook on the topic.
- The other input to the vector calculus related to this was from Hermann Grassmann who published Die Lineale Ausdehnungslehre, ein neuer Zweig der Mathematik in 1844.
- Pieter Molenbroek (born 1861) was professor at The Hague, Holland, and the author of Theorie der Quaternionen and Anwendung der Quaternionen auf der Geometrie (1893).
- Shunkichi Kimura was Japanese but was in Europe visiting Pieter Molenbroek when he published Note on Quaternions in 1895 giving his address as Japanese Legation, The Hague.
- However Molenbroek and Kimura published To Friends and Fellow Workers in Quaternions in Nature dated 7 August 1895 where they proposed an Association they suggested be called "The International Association for Promoting the Calculus of Quaternions." They added a P.S., dated 17 September 1895, where they wrote [',' S Kimura and P Molenbroek, Friends and Fellow Workers in Quaternions, Nature 52 (1895), 545-546.','5]:-

- He suggested that a new committee be elected at the meeting of the British Association held in Toronto, Canada, in 1897.
- This meeting elected the committee for the two years 1897-1898: President, Robert Stawell Ball, Lowndean Professor of Astronomy in the University of Cambridge; General Secretary, Alexander Macfarlane, Professor of Mathematical Physics at Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; and Treasurer, Pieter Molenbroek.
- Alexander Macfarlane (1851-1913) studied at the University of Edinburgh where he wrote a Ph.D.
- After teaching at the University of Edinburgh and the University of St Andrews, Macfarlane went to the United States where he was professor of physics at the University of Texas from 1885 to 1894, and then professor of mathematical physics at Lehigh University.

- The Turin Mathematical Society was founded in 1757 by a group of young scientists who were living in Turin, including Lagrange, Guiseppe Angelo Saluzzodi Menusiglio (Count Saluzzo) and the medical physician Giovanni Cigna.
- The first volume appeared at the beginning of the summer of 1759 and contained a paper by Lagrange on maxima and minima.
- The second volume was published in the summer of 1762 and again included important contributions from Lagrange such as a work on the calculus of variations and another paper on the propagation of sound.
- The third volume of the Melanges de Turin, containing a paper by Lagrange on the integral calculus, appeared in 1766.
- By the time the fourth volume was published in the summer of 1773 Lagrange had left Turin but it contained four memoirs which he had sent from Berlin to be published in the Melanges de Turin.
- In 1783 the Society expanded to become the Academy of Sciences of the Kingdom of Sardinia, and it remains one of the major Academies in Italy.

.
- The Academy was formally constituted on 14 May 1847 when the statutes were approved.
- This was not the first attempt to found an Academy in Austria, for in fact the idea goes back to 1713 when Gottfried Leibniz suggested establishing an Academy of Sciences in Vienna, quoting the Royal Society in London and the Academy of Sciences in Paris as models to use.
- Nothing came of Leibniz's proposals, nor did later proposals made J C Gottsched in 1750 meet with any greater success.
- The successful proposal for an Austrian Academy of Sciences came in 1837 in a petition submitted by twelve scholars.
- It still took many years of negotiation before the Academy formally came into being and, as we notes above, the foundation in 1846 was formalised by an Imperial Patent on 14 May 1847.
- The first President of the Academy was Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall, an orientalist, and Christian Doppler was an early member of the Academy being elected in 1848.
- The Academy moved into permanent buildings in 1857.
- For instance, it was responsible for founding the Central Office for Meteorology and Geomagnetism in 1851, the establishment of the observatories on the peaks of the Sonnblick and the Obir mountains, and in 1909 founded the Institute for Radium Research in Vienna.
- In the years 1879-1914 the Academy was expanded several times into a "universal research centre".
- The legal basis of the Austrian Academy of Sciences is now the "Federal Law of 14 October 1921, concerning the Academy of Sciences in Vienna", only slightly modified by an Act of 9 May 1947.
- The "Anschluss" to the German Reich on 12 March 1938 had inevitable effects on the Academy.
- The statutes of the Academy were replaced in 1938 by a "provisional statute", which led to some changes in the organization.
- In 1945, the 1938 statute was replaced by the original statute of 1921.
- The historian Heinrich von Srbik was elected on 1 April 1938 becoming the new president of the Academy.
- At the Academy's meetings he identified with Hitler's war policy; in 1940 he spoke of the "struggle of the German people for self-assertion," and in 1943 he repeated his "firm confidence of victory." He tried to preserve as far as possible the independence of the Vienna Academy from Berlin central offices.
- He had great respect for the academy members, so that in 1941, after the end of his term of office, he was re-elected as president.
- After the war ended in 1945, the 1921 statutes were put back in place, members who had been excluded had mostly left Austria so were given corresponding membership.
- In 1947 the Academy celebrated its centenary and at this time changed its name to the 'Austrian Academy of Sciences'.
- In 1954, the Austrian Academy of Sciences was awarded the Karl Renner Prize of the City of Vienna.
- In 1973 the Academy established its own publishing house.

- Attempts after 1945 to modernise Switzerland's scientific research structure were led by the Academy, but after the Swiss National Science Foundation was set up in 1952, it had the effect of diminishing the importance of the Academy.
- In 1988 it adopted the name of 'academy' with the 'Swiss Academy of Natural Science', slightly changing it in 2004.

- To compensate for the lack of mathematically oriented statistics within the Society, the annual meeting in 1968 was specifically aimed at methods of mathematical-statistics and their applications.
- In 1972 Wolfgang Wetzel became Chairman and he fostered stronger links with universities.
- Young Researchers' Workshops have been organised beginning in 1994.

- The Royal Statistical Society was founded as the Statistical Society of London in 1834.
- At a meeting on 15 March 1834 it was unanimously agreed:-
.
- In 1855 they produced the first catalogue of their library, which still exists as a handwritten volume, and by 1885 they had established a library containing 20000 books.
- The number of fellows grew quickly, there being 100 by 1835 and 402 by 1838.
- Of these 402, 14 were honorary foreign members.
- In 1934, the Society's centenary year, a Supplement to the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society began to be published covering Statistical Methodology.
- In 1948 the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society was split into two journals when the Supplement became a separate publication Journal of the Royal Statistical Society.
- Finnish Mathematical Society

- At the time that the Society was founded in 1868, Finland had only one university city.
- The University of Helsinki was founded at Turku in 1640 and transferred to Helsinki in 1828 (it was only sixteen years before this in 1812 that Helsinki became the capital).
- The Helsinki University of Technology, founded in 1849, was also in Helsinki.
- In 1809 Finland became a nation under Russian protection and was ruled from 1809 to 1863 by a bureaucracy chosen by the Russian emperor.
- In fact student organisations had been banned in in 1852 by a government who saw them as a source of anarchist ideas.
- In 1868 student organisations were again allowed and the Finnish Mathematical Society partly filled this role.

.
- A marked change took place in 1892, with new statutes and a new Chairman, Professor E R Neovius, a cousin of Ernst Lindelof and uncle of Rolf Nevanlinna.
- Lindelof was appointed secretary of the Society in 1892 and then became its chairman in 1903.
- That happened in 1926 when Marcel Riesz addressed the Society, having just accepted the chair of mathematics at the University of Lund in Sweden.
- In 1926 Ernst Lindelof was the professor of mathematics at the University of Helsinki and Rolf Nevanlinna was also teaching there.
- The war, however, caused a marked downturn in activity [',' O Lehto, The 125th anniversary of the Finnish Mathematical Society, European Mathematical Society Newsletter 9 (September, 1993), 9-10.','3]:-

- In 1957 the Society organised an international conference on analytic function theory in Helsinki, the first international mathematics conference to be held in Finland.
- The Society undertook the task of organising the International Congress of Mathematicians in Helsinki in 1978, Nevanlinna being one of the main organisers.
- Together with the Finnish Physical Society it publishes the journal Arkhimedes which began publication in 1948.
- The President of the Finnish Mathematical Society in 1951 was Pekka Juhana Myrberg and in July of that year he received a letter explaining that plans for a Scandinavian mathematics journal had been under discussion between the Danish, Norwegian and Swedish mathematical societies.
- The first meeting of the editorial board was in May and the journal was first published in 1953.
- Although negotiations for the joint publication of Nordisk Matematisk Tidskrift took a little longer to finalise, it first appeared in 1953.

.
- Pincherle edited this first issue of the Bollettino as well as the regular issues beginning in 1923 after the Union was officially founded.
- He continued as editor until his death in 1936.
- Moreover this Society had decided in 1908 to extend its coverage of mathematics to include not only school mathematics but also university level mathematics and mathematical research.
- The International Mathematical Union was created in 1920 and, in Italy, the Accademia dei Lincei was the responsible National Academy.
- In 1924 Pincherle was elected President of the International Mathematical Union and Italian Mathematical Union organised the International Congress of Mathematicians in Bologna in 1928.
- By 1934 the government had passed a law which meant that the President, Vice-President and council members of the Italian Mathematical Union had to be approved by the Minister of Education.
- Exactly what happen in elections for these offices in 1935 is unclear.
- By 1941 the situation was even more extreme with the government passing a decree that the President and Vice-President of the Union were nominated by the Minister of Education and even then had to swear allegiance to the fascist regime before they could serve.
- In [',' C Pucci, The Italian Mathematical Union from 1922 to 1944 : documents and reflections (Italian), Symposia mathematica, Vol.
- XXVII (London, 1986), 187-212.','3] Pucci shows how most mathematicians during this period were prepared to support the fascist regime, many with a degree of enthusiasm.
- A section on the history of mathematics was added in 1939 and at the same time it began publishing articles on mathematical education.
- Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
- function win1(file,h,v) {if (v > screen.height-80) {v = screen.height-80;}
.
- The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics was founded in 1951 and incorporated on 30 April 1952.
- Discussions took place at a meeting of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers in Atlantic City on 30 November 1951 concerning the setting up of a society to represent the interests of industrial applied mathematicians.
- In December 1951 an organizing committee which included I Edward Block, Donald B Houghton, Samuel S McNeary, Cletus O Oakley, George Patterson III and George Sonneman met at an engineering lab at the Drexel Institute of Technology.
- The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia provided the new Society with office space, an arrangement which continued from 1952 to 1958.
- This first meeting at the Drexel Institute of Technology was held on 17 March 1952 with W F G Swan speaking on Mathematics, the backbone of science.
- The SIAM Review began publication in 1959.
- After this, journals were founded to cover special areas: Control (1962), Numerical Analysis (1964), Applied Mathematics (1966), Mathematical Analysis (1970), Computing (1972), Scientific and Statistical Computing (1980), Algebraic and Discrete Methods (1980), Matrix Analysis (1988), Discrete Mathematics (1988), Optimization (1991), Applied Dynamical Systems (2002), and Multiscale Modeling and Simulation (2003).
- In addition a book publishing programme began in 1961 with the Series in Applied Mathematics.
- Membership of the Society grew rapidly from its small beginnings in 1952.
- By the end of 1952 there were 130 member, by 1953 there were 350, by 1954 there were 500, by 1955 there were 1000, by 1958 there were 2000, and by 1980 there were 5000.
- It was in the 1980s that the Society began to consider International Sections with the first set up in 1986.
- The United Kingdom section was set up in 1996.
- The first activity group of the Society was founded on 19 July 1982; it was the Linear Algebra group.

- The Royal Society of Edinburgh was founded in 1783.
- The Society for the Improvement of Medical Knowledge was founded in Edinburgh in 1731 and Maclaurin became one of its members.
- In 1737 the broader Society was formed with the full title "Edinburgh Society for Improving Arts and Sciences and particularly Natural Knowledge".
- This Club was founded in 1716 nearly ten years before Maclaurin was appointed to the University of Edinburgh, and it was a Club which suited Maclaurin with its mixture of congenial fellowship and the aim of its members in pursuing knowledge.
- The beginning of the Royal Society of Edinburgh was described in the first volume of the Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh published in 1788.
- In 1810 the Society purchased 42 George Street, and it occupied this building until 1826 when the Royal Institution Building on Princes Street was completed.
- William Thomson , later Baron Kelvin of Largs, was President from 1873 to 1878 and again from 1886 to 1890.
- From 1890 to 1895 Thomson was President of the Royal Society of London, then, this time as Lord Kelvin, he was President of the Royal Society of Edinburgh for a third time from 1895 until his death in 1907.
- Two others from our archive held the office of President: D'Arcy Thompson from 1934 to 1939, followed by Edmund Whittaker from 1939 to 1945.
- Three mathematicians from our archive served the Royal Society of Edinburgh as General Secretaries: Playfair from 1798 to 1819, Tait from 1879 to 1901, and Chrystal from 1901 to 1912.
- Other points worth noting which relate to mathematicians in this archive are that Tait was twice a winner of the Keith Prize (a feat few have equalled) and Joseph Wedderburn was elected a Fellow in 1903 when he was 21 years of age making him one of the youngest Fellows ever elected.

- Boyle, in his letters written in 1646 and 1647, refers to our invisible college or the philosophical college.
- By the summer of 1661 the members were discussing the name of the Society and how they might obtain a Royal Charter of incorporation.
- After petitions to King Charles II, the Charter of Incorporation passed the Great Seal on 15 July 1662 and the Royal Society of London officially existed from that date.
- At the meeting of the Society on 20 May 1663, 150 Fellows were elected.
- The number rose from the original 150 to over 200 by 1675 but then dropped to around 100 by 1690.
- The numbers then fell rapidly to around 450 by 1880.

- Call the numbers in question "good." Clearly every good number is square-free, since if p2 | n for some prime p then the congruence an+1 = a (mod n) fails for a = p.
- n = p1 ..
- pi-1 for each integer i = 1, ..
- Taking i = 1 forces (p1 - 1) | 1, so if r Ͱ5; 1 then p1 = 2 (this is obvious anyway by taking a = -1 in the defining property of "good").
- Similarly, taking i = 2 then gives (p2 - 1) | 2, so if r ≥ 2 then p2 = 3.
- Continuing, we find: if r ≥ 3, then (p3 - 1) | p1 p2 = 6, so p3 = 7; if r ≥ 4 then (p4 - 1) | p1 p2 p3 = 42, so p4 = 43 (the numbers d + 1 are not prime for the other divisors of 42 larger than 6): and if r ≥ 5 then p5 - 1 must divide p1 p2 p3 p4 = 1806.
- But 1, 2, 6 and 42 are the only divisors of 1806 with d + 1 prime, so p5 cannot exist.
- Solution5.1.html
- The sequence ( tn ) starts 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 11, 37, 83, ..
- Dividing the recursion tntn+5 = tn+1tn+4 + tn+2tn+3 by tn+1tn+4 gives the simpler recursion wnwn+2 = 1 + 1/wn+1 for the numbers wn = tn+3tn/tn+1tn+2.
- This says that the seqence of pairs (X, Y) = (wn,wn+1) is generated from the initial value (X, Y) = (1, 1) by (X, Y) ↦ (Y, (1 + Y-1)/X).
- A picture shows that these points (wn, wn+1) all lie on a curve, which is then easily found to be given by the equation (XY - 1)(5 - X - Y) = 6.
- This suggests trying the Ansatz tn = C77; BnAn2, where (- 1)n = 77; 1.
- This is easily seen to give a solution to our recursion if A is the root of A12 = A4 + 1, and the numerical value A = 1.07283 (approx) does indeed give a reasonably good fit to the data, but eventually fails more and more thoroughly.
- Looking more carefully, we try the same Ansatz but with C77; replaced by a function C77;(n) which lies between fixed limits but is almost periodic in n, and this works, but with a new value A = 1.07425 (approx).
- (The coefficient C77;(n) in fact depends on the position of the point (wn, wn+1) on the above-mentioned curve (XY - 1)(5 - X - Y) = 6.) Expanding the function C77;(n) numerically into a Fourier series, we discover that it is a Jacobi theta function, and since theta functions (or quotients of them) are elliptic functions, this leads quickly to elliptic curves and to the above curve E.
- Solution1.2.html
- The value of 2nk + 1 modulo F0 = 3 depends on n modulo 2, so by choosing k congruent to 1 (respectively to 2) modulo 3 we can arrange that all of the values of 2nk + 1 with k odd (respectively even) are divisible by F0 and hence composite.
- The value of 2nk + 1 modulo F1 = 5 depends on n modulo 4, so by choosing k congruent to 1, 2, 3 or 4 modulo 5 we can ensure that all of the values of 2nk + 1 with n in any fixed residue class mod 4 are divisible by F1 and hence composite.
- At this point we have fixed k mod F0 F1 = 15 = 24 - 1 (more specifically, we have 4 ways of choosing the residue class of k mod 15) and have eliminated 3/4 of the values of n.
- Continuing, we find that, since the order of 2 mod Fr is exactly 2r+1,we can choose k modulo F2 in two ways (given the previous choices modulo F0 and F1 ) in such a way as to eliminate one of the remaining two residue classes of n mod 8, then choose k modulo F3 in two ways to eliminate half of the remaining values of n, and then again modulo F4.
- At this stage we have chosen k modulo F0 F1 F2 F3 F4 = 232 - 1 (more precisely, we have found 32 possible choices, one for each residue class n0 mod 32) in such a way that the numbers 2nk + 1 with n ≠ n0 (modulo 32) are always divisible by one of the primes F0, F1, F2, F3 or F4 and hence are composite.
- But Euler's discovery that F5 factorizes as 641 5; 6700417 means that at the next stage we can choose k modulo 641 to eliminate one of the two surviving residue classes of n modulo 64 and independently choose k modulo 6700417 to eliminate the other one, thus giving finally 64 choices of k modulo F0 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 = 264 - 1 such that all members of the sequence 2nk + 1 have a factor in common with 264 - 1 and hence are composite.
- The smallest k which works is k0 = 201446503145165177, which is congruent to 217 modulo (264 - 1)/641 and to -217 modulo 641.
- Using covering congruences to composite moduli different from 264 - 1 we can get somewhat smaller values of k which also work, but this requires some numerical computations, while the argument using Fermat primes needs only "pure thought" plus the fact that there is at least one composite Fermat number.
- Solution3.3.html
- Let h(x) = [ 1 + xm + (1 - x)m]/2 be a polynomial in Fp[x].
- (Counting them is easily seen to be equivalent tocounting elements a in Fp - {0, 1} for which both a and a - 1 are quadratic residues, and such a are parametrized by a = (t + t-1)2/4 for t in Fp with t2 ≠; -1 mod p.) But hp has degree 2N and constant term 1, so we must have that hp(x) is the product over a of (1 - x/a)2.
- Another proof is to note that h(x) = F(x)2 + O(xm) in Fp[[x]], where F(x) = ͩ0;(1/2 + ͩ0;(1 - x)/2) = 1 - 1/8x - 5/128x2 - ..
- From the differential equation x(1 - x)F'' + (1/2 - x)F' + 1/16 F = 0 we find that the coefficient of xn in F equals -21-4n binom(4n - 3, 2n - 1)/n, which is 0 modulo p for N < n < m.
- A third proof, provided during the Colloquium, is even simpler: the product of h(x) and g(x) = [ 1 + xm - (1 - x)m]/2 in Fp[x] is x(1 - xm)2/4, which is x times a square.
- Since the polynomials f(x) and g(x)/x are coprime, they must both be squares (up to a common scalar multiple, but in fact without it since f(0) = 1).

- The sequence ( vn ) starts 2, 3, 5, 10, 28, 154, 3520, 1551880, 267593772160, 7160642690122633501504, ..
- It is required to show that the first non - integral vn is v43 = 5.4093 x 10178485291567 approximately.
- Again, the only problem is to show that the first index n0 with vn0 not in Z is n0 = 43, since the size of vn0 then follows from the easily proved formula vn ~ (n2 + 2n - 1 + 4n-1 - 21n-2 + 137n-3 - ..
- .) 5; C2n with C = 1.04783144757641122955990946274313755459..
- We first replace vn by sn = 2 + v12 + ..
- + vn-12 = n vn.
- Then the recursion becomes sn+1 = sn = sn2/n2 with initial condition s1 = 2.
- The first sn which could fail to be p-integral is sp+1, which will happen if and only if sp is not divisible by p, so we can test this by looking at the sequence (s1, s2, ..

- The sequence ( un ) starts 5/4 , 51/14 , 277/20 , 1497/26 , 4045/16 , ..
- It is required to show that the first integral un is u2755452 = 102019025 (approx).
- The first step is to note that the numbers Un = (6n + 2)un satisfy the recursion relation Un+3 = Un + 2Un+1 + 5Un+2 (the proof is elementary and I omit it) and hence are all integral.
- , B = 5.40431358073618481197 ..
- Again the detailed proof is complicated and I skip it, mentioning only that this is in the same category as the problem of finding pseudoprimes (for instance, a 2-pseudoprime is a composite integer n for which the number 2n-1 = 1 mod n, and this is a similar condition to the integrality of un since the numbers 2n-1 - 1 satisfy a linear recursion Tn+2 = 3Tn+1 - 2Tn similar to that of the Un) and can be analyzed by studying the splitting behavior of the cubic polynomial X3 - 5X2 - 2X - 1 modulo varying primes.

- The Edinburgh Mathematical Society was founded in 1883.
- At the first ordinary meeting of the Society in March 1883, 51 members joining the Society.
- In 1884 the Society began publication of the Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society.
- It continued to meet regularly in Glasgow, adding St Andrews as a meeting venue in 1922, Dundee in 1930, and Aberdeen in 1937.
- George Chrystal, one of the Society's first honorary members, died in 1911 and in the following year Edmund Whittaker took up Chrystal's chair in Edinburgh.
- Almost immediately he encouraged the Edinburgh Mathematical Society to hold a mathematical colloquium which it did in Edinburgh in 1913.
- Turnbull was appointed Regius Professor of Mathematics in the United College of St Salvator and St Leonard at the University of St Andrews in 1921 and he was enthusiastic that the Edinburgh Mathematical Society should resume its Colloquium but that the venue should be St Andrews.
- This was accepted by the Society and in 1926 the first of the St Andrews Colloquia was held.
- The EMS: the first hundred years
- The Edinburgh Mathematical Society: the first hundred years (1883-1983)
.
- This account of our Society is based to some extent on my Presidential address, which was given on 19 October 1977 and was devoted to the first fifty years.
- In conjunction with Dr Cargill Gilston Knott (1856-1922), who was then Assistant to the Professor of Natural Philosophy in Edinburgh University, they issued the following circular 'to gentlemen in Edinburgh, in Cambridge and throughout Scotland generally whom they deemed likely to take an interest in such a Society'.
- JANUARY 23, 1883.
- It is suggested that the Society be formed, in the first instance, of all those who shall give in their names on or before February 2, 1883, and who are (1) present or former students in either of the Advanced Mathematical Classes of Edinburgh University, (2) Honours Graduates in any of the British Universities, or (3) recognised Teachers of Mathematics; and that, after the above mentioned date, members be nominated and elected by ballot in the usual manner.
- To quote from the minutes: 'The Chairman, in his introductory remarks, mentioned that Professor P G Tait (Professor of Natural Philosophy at Edinburgh University) had suggested that the Society regard itself as the resuscitation of the Physico-Mathematical Society, which had led a vigorous existence during the years 1836-39, had revived at subsequent intervals, but finally collapsed in 1850, leaving behind it, however, a library, some fragmentary apparatus, and a ballot-box'.
- The first officers of the Society were elected, Mr (later Dr) John Sturgeon Mackay (1843-1914) being the first President.
- As Honorary Members, Professors Tait and Chrystal were not, of course, eligible as officers and the first professor to become President was James Edward Aloysius Steggall (1855-1935), who was Professor at University College, Dundee.
- Over the years the percentage of university members has, of course, increased; however, as late as 1926, just before the second series of the Proceedings was instituted, their percentage had only risen from 26% to 36%.
- The state of mathematics in Scotland at the time of the Society's foundation can be judged from the admirable and hard-hitting address given on 8 February 1884 by our second president Thomas Muir (1844-1934), who was at that time mathematical master at Glasgow High School.
- In 1892 he went out to Cape Town as Superintendent-General of Education, and spent the rest of his life there.
- He was elected a member of the Royal Society in 1900 and knighted in 1915.
- Great changes have taken place in universities and schools during the last hundred years, but even up till the Second World War much of what he wrote in 1884 was still to some extent relevant.
- Muir was, of course, well aware of the deficiencies of the Cambridge coaching and examination system; after all these had been referred to by Augustus De Morgan in his presidential address in 1865 to the London Mathematical Society, of which Muir was a member.
- In 1884 University Lecturers scarcely existed.
- During its first two sessions the Society met in Edinburgh University, but moved in the autumn of 1884 to the Edinburgh Institution in Queen Street.
- Annual meetings in May or March of each year were held thereafter from 1901 to 1905 in the United Free Church College in Glasgow, later known as Trinity College.
- Thereafter from 1913 until 1931, once and latterly twice a year, meetings were held in the Mathematics Class Room of the University of Glasgow.
- Gibson's connection with the Society goes back to its very early years (he was admitted in February 1884), but his predecessor in Glasgow, William Jack, although elected an Honorary Member in 1902, seems to have taken little interest in the Society.
- The billets advertising the Glasgow meetings are of interest, since from 1912 at the last meeting in the Royal Technical College until the last meeting in the University of Glasgow in 1931 they bear the invitation: Professor and Mrs Gibson (later Professor and Mrs MacRobert) "At Home", 10 The University.
- I shall explain later why these Glasgow meetings ended abruptly in 1931 and did not resume until 1957.
- The Society first began to meet annually in St Andrews in 1922.
- Its first meeting in Dundee took place in 1930 during Professor Steggall's last year of office as President.
- The first meeting in Aberdeen was in 1937.
- During the 1939-1945 war, meetings were usually held on Saturday mornings in Edinburgh.
- In both world wars there was, naturally, some curtailment of the Society's activities and for this reason, during the sessions beginning in 1917, 1939 and 1943, no changes were made in the offices of President and Vice-President.
- During the second session the Society resolved to print its proceedings in whole or in abstract, so that Volume 2 of the Proceedings was the first to be published and appeared in 1884.
- By 1909 it was felt that the more elementary and pedagogic articles should not appear in the Proceedings and, at Professor G A Gibson's suggestion, it was agreed "to issue at stated intervals a supplement to the Proceedings dealing with the teaching of Mathematics and Science, the supplement to be called 'Mathematical Notes, a review of Elementary Mathematics and Science, published by the Edinburgh Mathematical Society' ".
- 44) appeared in 1961.
- In this connection it is, I think, of interest to mention a controversy that took place between 1927 and 1931 concerning the Society's publications.
- The older of the two was, of course, the late Sir Edmund Whittaker (1873-1956), who was Professor of Mathematics at Edinburgh from 1912 to 1946.
- The younger of the two was the late Professor Thomas M MacRobert (1884-1962), who was Professor of Mathematics at Glasgow University from 1927 to 1954.
- It may be of interest to observe that five years later in 1936 the Glasgow Mathematical Association did commence publication of a periodical devoted to historical and pedagogical matters, called the Journal of the Glasgow Mathematical Association.
- It may be of interest to mention that the possibility of an amalgamation of the Edinburgh Proceedings with the Proceedings of the Glasgow Mathematical Association (now the Glasgow Mathematical Journal to form a new Scottish Mathematical Journal was discussed in 1965, the view being that such a journal would carry greater prestige than either of its constituents since it would be of greater size and might appear more frequently.

- Scotland in 1883 and the Edinburgh Mathematical Society
.
- In 1883 there were four universities in Scotland: the Universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews.
- You can read here extracts from the respective Calendars of 1883 about the founding of these universities at THIS LINK.
- At Aberdeen the Professor of Mathematics in 1883 is George Pirie who had been appointed in 1878, replacing Frederick Fuller who retired in that year.
- The Professor of Natural Philosophy is Charles Niven who was appointed in 1880 to replace David Thomson who died in 1880.
- In 1881, seven students had graduated with an M.A.
- with Honours in Mathematics, while in 1882 there were also seven.
- One of the students graduating in 1881 was Alexander Yule Fraser, who was a Boxill Mathematical Prizeman, and went on to become a mathematics master at George Watson's College, Edinburgh, and was one of the three signatories of the letter proposing to set up the Edinburgh Mathematical Society.
- W Cooper Dickson, one of the First Class students of 1882 was a founder member of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, joining in February 1883 while training for ministry in the Church.
- At Edinburgh George Chrystal is the professor of mathematics in 1883.
- He was appointed in 1879 replacing Philip Kelland who had been the professor for over forty years from 1838 to 1879.
- The Professor of Natural Philosophy is Peter Guthrie Tait who was appointed in 1860 to replace James David Forbes who had moved to St Andrews University to become Principal of the University.
- In 1882 one student graduated from Edinburgh with an M.A.
- with Honours in Mathematics, namely R Edgar Allardice who graduated First Class in 1882, joined Edinburgh Mathematical Society as a founder member in February 1883, and became Assistant to the Professor of Mathematics in the University of Edinburgh.
- In the following year of 1883 three students graduated from Edinburgh with an M.A.
- At Glasgow the Professor of Mathematics in 1883 is William Jack, who had been appointed in 1879, replacing Hugh Blackburn who had been the professor of mathematics for thirty years 1849-1879.
- The Professor of Natural Philosophy is Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) appointed 1846 to replace W Meikleham who had held the position from 1803 to 1846.
- with Honours in Mathematics and Natural Philosophy in 1881, two with a First Class and three with a Second Class degree.
- In 1882 only one student graduated with an M.A.
- At St Andrews the Regius Professor of Mathematics in 1883 is R P Scott Lang who was appointed in 1879 to replace George Chrystal who, after two years as Regius Professor had moved to Edinburgh.
- Before George Chrystal the Reius Professor had been William L F Fischer who held the position from 1859 to 1877.
- The Professor of Natural Philosophy is Arthur S Butler, who was appointed in 1880 to replace William Swan who was Professor from 1859 to 1880.
- with Honours in Mathematics and Natural Philosophy in 1881, both with a First Class degree.

- EMS 1980 Colloquium
- The Edinburgh Mathematical Society held the St Andrews Colloquium in St Andrews from 9 to 19 July 1980.
- He made a report to the First Ordinary meeting of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society in session 1980-81.
- Dr C M Campbell (CMC) reported on the 1980 St Andrews Colloquium, held from 9 to 19 July.
- This survey (to be published in two parts in successive issues of the Bulletin) is based on lectures given at the St Andrews Mathematical Colloquium in 1980.

.
- By the middle 1920s it was felt that the size of page used was too small and a second series of the Proceedings was begun in 1927.
- The wrappers of the parts were originally brown, but were changed to green in 1958; in that year also short book reviews were published for the first time.
- The number of parts appearing annually was increased from two to three in 1979 and from that date volumes have appeared annually.
- In this connection it may be noted that the new Constitution of the Society adopted on 15 January 1932 contains for the first time the provision that every paper published must first have been submitted by the Editors to at least one referee of recognised authority, and reported upon favourably by him.
- The original annual subscription, which included the cost of the publications, was five shillings (63;0.25).
- This rose to seven shillings and sixpence in 1885 and remained at that rate until 1919 when it became ten shillings.
- In 1954 it was raised to fifteen shillings and since 1958 there have been further more frequent increases as a result of inflation.
- The current annual subscription is 63;11.
- When Whittaker came to the Edinburgh chair in 1912 after Chrystal's death he soon began to inject fresh vitality into his department.
- After the war, largely through the enthusiasm and drive of Herbert Westren Turnbull (1885-1961), who had been appointed to the Regius Chair of Mathematics in St Andrews in 1921, the Society's colloquia were resumed.
- The first meeting in St Andrews in 1926 set the pattern for future colloquia, which have been held there at regular intervals since then.
- Since 1926 colloquia have been held in 1930, 1934, 1938, 1951, 1955, 1959, 1964 and at four year intervals thereafter.
- The fifteenth colloquium will doubtless be held in 1984.
- Before the 1914-19 war in May of three successive years 1911, 1912 and 1913 one-day Secondary Education Congresses were held in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee, respectively, for those interested in the teaching of mathematics.
- They became Presidents in 1889 and 1884, respectively.
- Other Watsonians prominent in the Society's affairs were Jock Alison (1861-1952), a distinguished headmaster, who was President in 1892, and Donald Cameron McIntosh, who was Secretary for many years and President in 1905.
- Peter Guthrie Tait (1831-1901), who was a school-fellow of James Clerk Maxwell at Edinburgh Academy, was a distinguished Professor of Natural Philosophy with very wide interests.
- Until I read his obituary I had always imagined that Tait's colleague George Chrystal (1851-1911) was a pure mathematician with a main interest in algebra.
- His experience in teaching mathematics in the University convinced him that 'algebra, as we teach it, is neither an art nor a science, but an ill-digested farrago of rules whose object is the solution of examination problems.' This led him to write his monumental treatise of nearly 1200 pages on Algebra, which appeared in two parts in 1886 and 1889, and had a powerful effect on the teaching of algebra in Great Britain and abroad.
- A shorter version, entitled Introduction to Algebra for the use of Secondary Schools and Technical Colleges, appeared in 1902.
- Of the original members of the Society few can have given it greater service than its first Secretary, Cargill Gilston Knott (1856-1922), who served twice as President.
- On his return in 1891 he was appointed to one of the first Lectureships in Edinburgh University and later become a Reader.
- One of the most faithful early members of the Society was George Alexander Gibson (1853-1931).
- He was elected a member in 1884, while he was Assistant to the Professor of Mathematics in Glasgow University, and became in 1895 Professor of Mathematics at the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College.
- He returned to Glasgow University as Professor in 1909, retiring in 1927.
- After ten years as a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, he moved to Dublin in 1906 to take up the post of Royal Astronomer of Ireland.
- In 1912 he came to Edinburgh to succeed George Chrystal as Professor of Mathematics.
- His main interest as a young man was the theory of invariants, on which he gave a course of lectures to the 1926 meeting held there; this formed the basis of his well-known book The Theory of Determinants, Matrices, and Invariants, which appeared in 1928.
- It was under Turnbull's editorship that the second series of the Proceedings was begun in 1927 and it was largely due to his efforts that the second series became a mathematical journal of repute.
- In later life he became an authority on the history of mathematics and, after his retirement in 1950, he edited the correspondence of Isaac Newton on behalf of the Royal Society.
- Robert Franklin Muirhead (1861-1941) was a graduate of Glasgow and Cambridge Universities and spent some time at the University of Gottingen.
- He took a great interest in the Society and was twice President, in 1899 and again in 1909.
- He was elected an Honorary Member in 1912.
- Men like Muirhead, or his younger colleague John Dougall (1867-1960), who was President in 1925, would easily have obtained university posts in the golden 25 years following the last war, but they lived in times, rather like those we have moved into recently, when appropriate positions were not available to everyone of ability.
- Napier Tercentenary
- On July 24th to 27th, 1914, there will be held a celebration, under the auspices of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, of the tercentenary of the publication of Napier's Mirifici Logarithmorum Canonis Descriptio, the work which embodies the discovery of logarithms.
- In a book on arithmetic published in Venice in 1434, the author, Fra Luca Paciolo, propounds the problem to find in how many years a sum would double itself at a given rate of compound interest.
- to 1 p.m., with a break of half an hour at eleven o'clock, and was fully attended by the members.
- of Scotland raised a loan of money from Alexander Napier, who was the Provost of Edinburgh in 1437, and had pledged the lands of Merchiston, originally part of the Crown demesne, in mortgage for the repayment of the loan.
- The Castle about 1750 passed out of the hands of the Lewis family, who succeeded the Napiers in possession in 1665, and somewhere about the beginning of last century the addition on the south side of the tower, which now forms the front of it, was built.
- Dr Fisher, preaching from the 90th Psalm, 12th verse, "So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom," recalled a speech in 1825 by Thomas Chalmers, when he reproached himself for having during a period of his life occupied himself merely with mathematical interests, and had neglected the realities of time and eternity.
- Professor Andoyer, of Paris, gave the history and method of construction of his recently published trigonometrical and logarithmic tables (1911.) These tables contain the logarithms of the trigonometrical functions to 17 significant figures for every hundredth of the quadrant, and to 14 figures for every 10 seconds.
- M Andoyer also inferred to his present calculations of natural sines to 15 significant figures, a task which he hopes to complete in about two years.
- Professor d'Ocagne communicated two short historic notes, the first being to the effect that the principle of the millionaire calculating machine was invented in 1893 by a young French mechanician, Leon Bollee by name, who constructed a machine to help his father, a bell founder, in the necessary calculations.
- The earliest systematic application of nomograms he had lately traced to Margett's Longitude Tables of 1791.
- Till then he had believed that the first user of the method was Pouchet in his Arithmetique lineaire, which was published in 1795.
- EMS Whittaker Prize
- He had been Professor of Mathematics in the University of Edinburgh from 1912 to 1946 and was an Honorary Member of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society.

- EMS Rutherford
- Report on Dan Rutherford's lecture to the Edinburgh Mathematical Society given in the Mathematical Institute, Chambers Street, Edinburgh, on Saturday 1 November 1941.
- Young's principal papers on this subject appeared at intervals between 1900 and 1933, but there was a long gap (1902-1927) in which none appeared; from which the lecturer drew the moral that when a problem defeats us we should keep it at hand, persevere with it, never despair.

.
- Sir James Leslie was Professor of Mathematics in Edinburgh University from 1805 until 1819, and Professor of Natural Philosophy from 1819 until his death in 1832.
- Sir John Leslie was born in 1766 in Upper Largo, Fife, where his little cottage may still be seen.
- These he mastered, by himself, and, at the mature ago of 13, entered the University of St Andrews, His parents must have been hard-pressed to find the money, but such sacrifices produced fine characters; he was found qualified for the senior class in mathematics, and at the end of the year he gained a prize.
- In 1805 at the ago of 39 he was first favourite for the Chair of Mathematics in the University of Edinburgh, from which his friend, Professor Playfair, had been translated to the Chair of Natural Philosophy.
- On the sudden death of his friend Playfair in 1819 he was called to the Chair of Natural Philosophy.
- In 1832, on the recommendation of Lord Brougham, then Lord Chancellor, he was created a Knight of the Guelphic Order.
- This illness proved fatal, and he died in 1832 in his 67th year.
- EMS Mobius
- Other papers of the programme were: Deformable quadrics and their circular sections, by Professor H W Turnbull, F.R.S., illustrated with a series of folding cardboard models; A note on the history of the fundamental theorem of the integral calculus, in which Professor Turnbull showed that an important theorem, commonly ascribed to Barrow in 1669, was actually contained in Gregory's Pars Universalis (1668), and should therefore be credited to the latter mathematician; On the intersection of certain quadrics, by L M Brown; and On the projective geometry of paths, by Dr J Haantjes.

- Six student prizes were awarded, each of 63;100; three were SIAM prizes for the best applied-mathematics oral presentations, two were for the best pure mathematics oral presentations, and one was for the best poster.
- Due to generous sponsorship by GCHQ (Heilbronn Institute), Schlumberger and MathWorks totalling 63;10,150 (an order of magnitude larger than the original budget), 87 bursaries were awarded to students, covering at least their conference registration fee.

- The registration fee was set in November 2014 at 63;115 (or 63;163 including the conference dinner); registration included three buffet lunches, two receptions, and continuous morning coffee and afternoon tea.
- a surplus made on accommodation (63;2,943.40 on a turnover of £58,829.15);
.
- The difference between these refunds is the 63;1,260.00 subsidy that the conference made to the LMS reception in recognition of the 150th anniversary celebrations.
- 63;3915.65 on Scheme 3 workshops, compared with a LMS Grant of £3000), in many cases the funds available were not sufficient even to pay the registration fee for all the speakers (let alone travel/subsistence expenses).
- As we understand it, not covering such expenses is in line with convention at recent BMCs (since the change to workshops in 2011) and BAMCs, but it can be somewhat embarrassing (indeed, some workshop organisers queried this convention in disbelief).

- Report2016.html
- Following negotiation within the University of Bristol, we had no costs relating to lecture room hire or administration, and could keep the registration fees low -- 63;75 standard/£40 discounted (student/retired) early registration fees, 63;90/63;50 late registration fees.
- Therefore we had funds left over from 63;17,100 that we applied for, and we returned them to the LMS.
- The significant expenses were plenary/morning/special session speakers' costs £9930, early career funding 63;1,991, catering £8,956 (two wine receptions, lunches, tea/coffee/buscuits), conference dinner £5,416, registration packs 63;1,899, technical support and poster session support £465.

- 63;7500, should be given to the LMS in exchange for assurances of continuing LMS support for BMCs.
- Following a recommendation from the meeting of 13 June, it was agreed that each BMC is to be free-standing, and that the Scientific Committee is to be advisory only and is to have no responsibility in respect of financial matters.

- It was not until the telescope in 1609 and our ability to examine them properly that we realised that they weren't simply stationary and that the sun was not a perfect sphere.
- After many attempts to measure the distance to the sun, Le Verrier in 1872 was the first to do so with a value close to our current approximation.
- (The mean distance to sun is now believed to be 1.5 5; 1011m).
- In 1655-56 Newton had discovered that white light was composite, and in 1802 Wollaston saw dark lines in the spectrum that he believed were boundaries between the colours.
- However, later in 1814-15 Fraunhofer, who invented the first spectroscope, observed the sun and saw hundreds of dark lines.
- Doppler, in 1842 proposed his famous theory that the colour of light would be affected by the velocity of its propagator.
- Fizeau in 1860 came to more accurate conclusions and the effect was first measured in the years around 1890 using spectroscopy by Vogel, Scheiner and Keeler in Potsdam and California after unsuccessful attempts by Huggins and Secchi.
- When put together with measurements of the distance of closer variable stars using secular parallax by Herzsprung (1913) and then Shapley (more accurately in 1918), Leavitt's period-luminosity relationship provided a way of measuring the distances away of Cepheids by comparing their absolute to their apparent magnitudes.

- Meanwhile, Persian calendar reforms, initiated by Mailk Shah, sultan of the Seljuq Empire in 1079, had prompted Omar Khayyam to an outstandingly accurate measurement of the year - by far the most accurate of the pre-telescope era.
- With enormous confidence, Khayyam gave the length as 365.24219858156 days.

- Galileo is famous for being the first person to use the telescope in 1609 (a then recent invention) to observe the skies through which he saw craters on the moon (disproving Aristotle's theory of celestial bodies being perfect and spherical, and the moons of Jupiter (proving that some heavenly bodies revolved around objects other than Earth).
- In doing so, he theorised in 1609-21 that celestial orbits were ellipses caused by some physical force that was pushing the planets along its path.
- In 1650 Descartes built on Kepler's ideas to say that tides were caused by the force from the sun and moon and in 1681 Flamsteed recognised that comets had a closed orbit and so were terrestrial objects rather than celestial.

- As early as 1344 Bradwardine attacked the Aristotelian idea that the universe was finite in size, arguing that the universe was infinite in extent as God himself was.
- Einstein's revolutionary general theory of relativity in 1916 had a finite universe (Einstein had to include a cosmological constant to achieve this as he believed the universe was static) and depended on non-Euclidean space.
- In 1917 de Sitter suggested an infinite universe to make Relativity and Euclidean space compatible.
- Friedmann and Lemaitre independently explored solutions to Einstein's field equations and came to the conclusion that the universe was expanding in the 1920s, before Hubble observationally established that this was the case in 1929.
- If the galaxies are moving away from each other, it made sense that they started from an original point, a conclusion Lemaitre came to in 1931.
- In 1948 Gamow and Alpher calculated that in order for chemical elements to be synthesised in the ratios we see them today, it was necessary for the universe to have a hot, dense phase in its early stages.
- Also in 1948, Alpher and Hermann probed deeper into the early universe and came to the conclusion that there would be leftover thermal radiation from this stage.
- It was first measured by Penzias and Wilson in 1965 and forms part of the static you hear on the radio.
- Recently, over one hundred years after they were predicted by Poincare in 1905, gravitational waves were detected in 2016 to the excitement of the scientific community.
