The Edinburgh Mathematical Society (EMS) was established in 1883 and has since become firmly established as the primary mathematical society for the university group in Scotland. The aims of the EMS are the promotion and expansion of the Mathematical Sciences, pure and applied, especially in Scotland, and it draws its participation from all the Scottish universities and other educational institutions as in addition mathematicians in industry and commerce both at home and overseas. The EMS has published Proceedings since 1884. Annual volumes appear in three parts in February, June and October and contain research papers on points in a broad range of pure and applied mathematics and book reviews. PEMS is published by Cambridge University Press and controlled by the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS); it has a world-wide circulation, a renowned universal international board of consulting editors, and an editorial board with a broad range of numerical interests. The Society moreover has an active programme of meetings, hosted by the Scottish universities. There are typically eight gatherings a year, at which eminent mathematicians are invited to present talks. Details of this year’s programme are available from the Meetings page. The EMS also holds postgraduate students' gatherings at the Burn House, near Edzell.
The EMS provides stipends for research and schools enrichment activities. Full details of these two grant schemes are accessible from the Research Support Fund and Education pages. It also awards the Whittaker Prize every four years to an extraordinary youthful mathematician. The 2013 Whittaker prize winner is Dr Stuart White of the University of Glasgow. The EMS turned into a part of society of the Council for Mathematical Sciences in 2008. The Society distributes an academic journal; the Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, published by Cambridge University Press .The Proceedings were first published in 1884, and are issued three times a year. It covering a range of pure and applied mathematics. Between 1909 and 1961, the Society also published the Edinburgh Mathematical Notes, on the proposal of George Alexander Gibson, a professor at the University of Glasgow, who wished to remove the more basic or pedagogical articles from the Proceedings.Read More»
