The American Mathematical Society (AMS) is an association of professional mathematicians dedicated to the interests of mathematical research and scholarship, and serves the national and international community through its publications, meetings, advocacy and other programs.
The society is one of the four parts of the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics (JPBM) and a member of the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS).
It was founded in 1888 as the New York Mathematical Society, the brainchild of Thomas Fiske, who was impressed by the London Mathematical Society on a visit to England. John Howard Van Amringe was the first president and Fiske became secretary. The society soon decided to publish a journal, but ran into some resistance, due to concerns about competing with the American Journal of Mathematics. The result was the Bulletin of the New York Mathematical Society, with Fiske as editor-in-chief. The de facto journal, as intended, was influential in increasing membership. The popularity of the Bulletin soon led to Transactions of the American Mathematical Society and Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, which were also de facto journals.
A society is a group of people involved in persistent social interaction, or a large social grouping sharing the same geographical or social territory, typically subject to the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations. Societies are characterized by patterns of relationships (social relations) between individuals who share a distinctive culture and institutions; a given society may be described as the sum total of such relationships among its constituent members. In the social sciences, a larger society often evinces stratification or dominance patterns in subgroups.
Insofar as it is collaborative, a society can enable its members to benefit in ways that would not otherwise be possible on an individual basis; both individual and social (common) benefits can thus be distinguished, or in many cases found to overlap.
A society can also consist of like-minded people governed by their own norms and values within a dominant, larger society. This is sometimes referred to as a subculture, a term used extensively within criminology.
The London Mathematical Society (LMS) is one of the United Kingdom's learned societies for mathematics (the others being the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA)).
The Society was established on 16 January 1865, the first president being Augustus De Morgan. The earliest meetings were held in University College, but the Society soon moved into Burlington House, Piccadilly. The initial activities of the Society included talks and publication of a journal.
The LMS was used as a model for the establishment of the American Mathematical Society in 1888.
The Society was granted a royal charter in 1965, a century after its foundation. In 1998 the Society moved from rooms in Burlington House into De Morgan House (named after the society's first president), at 57–58 Russell Square, Bloomsbury, to accommodate an expansion of its staff. The Society is also a member of the UK Science Council.
The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is an annual six-problem, 42-point mathematical olympiad for pre-collegiate students and is the oldest of the International Science Olympiads. The first IMO was held in Romania in 1959. It has since been held annually, except in 1980. About 100 countries send teams of up to six students, plus one team leader, one deputy leader, and observers.
The content ranges from precalculus problems that are extremely difficult to problems on branches of mathematics not conventionally covered at school and often not at university level either, such as projective and complex geometry, functional equations and well-grounded number theory, of which extensive knowledge of theorems is required. Calculus, though allowed in solutions, is never required, as there is a principle at play that anyone with a basic understanding of mathematics should understand the problems, even if the solutions require a great deal more knowledge. Supporters of this principle claim that this allows more universality and creates an incentive to find elegant, deceptively simple-looking problems which nevertheless require a certain level of ingenuity.
The Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program (also called the Mathematical Olympiad Program, MOP, MOSP, and MOsP) is an intensive summer program held at Carnegie Mellon University. The main purpose of MOP, held since 1974, is to select and train the six members of the U.S. team for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). Students qualify for the program by taking the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO). The top twelve American scorers from all grades form the "black" group. The approximately eighteen next highest American scorers among students from 11th grade and under form the "blue" group. In 2004, the program was expanded to include approximately thirty of the highest-scoring American freshmen and sophomores each year, the "red" group; this was later split into two, forming the "green" group, which consists of approximately fifteen of the highest-scoring freshmen and sophomores who have qualified through the USAMO, and the "red" group, which consists of those who have qualified through the USAJMO. The colorful designations of these groups were adapted from Karate. In 2013, the red and green groups were unified. Also, with the new system the Black Group includes more or less only the IMO team, which is not necessarily all USAMO winners.

Our universe isn't just described by mathematics, but it is mathematics. Specifically, it's a mathematical structure. Our world doesn't just have some mathematical properties: it fundamentally has only mathematical properties. Subscribe for more science talks! http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe Why is mathematics so spectacularly successful at describing the cosmos? In this Ri talk, MIT physics professor Max Tegmark proposes a radical idea: that our physical world is not only described by mathematics, but that it is mathematics. He shows how this theory may provide answers to the nature of reality itself. This event was filmed at the Royal Institution on January 30 2014.

Mathematics is important to us all. So it is important to enable young mathematicians, clear-thinking and passionate about their subject, to contribute at the highest level. Peter Cameron will talk about his experience designing and presenting a course for first-semester university students aiming to produce mathematicians. This is the 2013 joint London Mathematical Society / Gresham College lecture. The transcript and downloadable versions of this event by Professor Peter Cameron are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/mathematics-the-next-generation Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download...
"There's a secret world out there. A hidden parallel universe of beauty and elegance, intricately intertwined with ours. And it's invisible to most of us." Imagine that you had to take an art class in which they taught you only how to paint a fence or a wall, but never showed you the paintings of the great masters. Alas, this is how math is taught, and so for most of us it becomes the intellectual equivalent of watching paint dry. Edward Frenkel wants to open this secret world to all of us because it can teach us so much about the mysteries of the Universe. In this talk, he weaves the discovery of math with his personal journey, addressing the existential questions of finding out who we are; of truth, courage, and passion. Edward Frenkel is a professor of mathematics at the University of...
Based on the 1987 London Mathematical Society Popular Lectures, this special 'television lecture' entitled "How Mathematics Gets Into Knots" is presented by Professor Ronald Brown. The London Mathematical Society is one of the oldest mathematical societies, founded in 1865. Despite it's name, it is the national learned society and is of international mathematical importance. The popular lectures are designed to be intelligible to a non-specialist audience, although A-Levels are useful. The lecturers are chosen for their mathematical distinction and their ability to communicate. The videos are suitable for all who have a serious interest in mathematics. That includes amateur mathematicians, sixth form mathematics students etc. Schools, Colleges and Universities find them invaluable. For ...

LMS Popular Lecture Leeds University November 2015 The mathematics of processing digital images In an age of digital images we have all become photographers. High quality cameras in mobile phones, together with Apps which send images to our contacts, have transformed the way in which we communicate. This talk will take a look at digital images and at some of the mathematics upon which many of the techniques for processing images are based.
It has been said that mathematics is the poetry of science. Professor Cédric Villani discusses the interface between mathematics and art, showing how both these disciplines seek to illuminate hidden beauty in the world. Cédric Villani visited Vancouver to deliver the spring 2017 Wall Exchange lecture. Prof. Villani is a specialist of mathematical analysis applied to problems of statistical physics, geometry and probability. His books on gas theory and optimal transport theory have become classics. Prof. Villani has received many mathematical awards, including the Fields Medal in 2010, often considered the most prestigious in mathematics. The Wall Exchange lecture was co-sponsored by the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.
