THE MATHEMATICS STUDENT

The Society began publishing Progress Reports right from 1907 and then the Journal from 1908 (The 1908 and 1909 issues of the Journal are entitled "The Journal of the Indian Mathematical Club").

Since 1933, The Indian Mathematical Society publishes two periodicals

The Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society
( J. Ind. Math. Soc.; JIMS ; the Journal ; ISSN 0019-5839 )

and

The Mathematics Student
( Math Student ; ISSN 0025-5742 ) ,

both of which are quarterly. The four numbers of the Journal constitute a single volume and it is published in two parts: numbers 1 and 2 (January to June) as one part and numbers 3 and 4 (July to December) as the second part. The four numbers of the Student are currently published as a single yearly volume.

In fact, at the time of Silver Jubilee Celebrations on the occasion of completion of 25 years of existence of the Society in 1932, it was decided to start the publication of another periodical, and accordingly the Society started a new periodical, named The Mathematics Student" , in 1933 with A. Narasingrao as its first Editor who worked as founding Editor almpst single handed with great devotion for eighteen years (1933 - 1950) and placed it on firm footing.

It may be noted with great pride that

* A conference, first of its kind in Asia, entitled "South Asian Conferenceon Mathematical Education" under the directorship of K. Chandrasekharan was held at T I F R, Bombay, during February 1956 in which mathematicians like M. H. Stone, G. Choquet, H. Freudenthal and a host of other world mathematicans participated; the entire Proceedings of the conference has been published in the Mathematics Student Vol. 54 (1956).

The Mathematics Student seeks to publish material of interest not just to mathematicians with specialized interests but to the post graduate/research students teachers of Mathematics in India. With this in view, from the 2015 issue onwards, it will publish material of the following type:

1. the texts (written in a way accessible to students) of the Presidential Addresses, the Plenary talks and the Award Lectures delivered at the Annual Conferences.

2. general survey articles, popular articles, expository papers, Book-Reviews.

3. problems and solutions of the problems.

4. new, clever proofs of theorems that graduate / undergraduate students might see in their course work,

5. research papers (not highly technical, but of interest to larger readership) and

6. articles that arouse curiosity and interest for learning mathematics among readers and motivate them for doing mathematics.

Contributions of these type are invited for publication in THE MATHEMATICS STUDENT.
