The St. Petersburg Mathematical Society was sorted out in 1890 and was the third numerical society is Russia. Its 1st president was V.G.Imshenetskii (1890-1892), who presented the possibility of the foundation of the Society, and after his demise Yu-K.Sokhotsky got to be president and kept this position until the main time of the presence of the Society was hindered before the Revolution.
Reproduced in 1921 attributable to the endeavors of A.V.Vassiliev, beneath the name of the Petrograd Physical and Mathematical Society, the general public started to assume an essential part in numerical existence of the city and the nation. Amid the second time of its work there were around 150 sessions. In 1921-1923, A.V.Vasiliev was president of the Society, and N.M.Günter was president since 1923. The exploitation since late twentieth of freely thinking individuals, specifically researchers, prompted the choice of self-disintegration of the general public.
In 1953, the Leningrad Mathematical Seminar was sorted out on V.I.Smirnov's drive. Really, it assumed the part of society for quite a long while. Amid that period the action of the course and of the general public was associated with the names of V.I.Smirnov, G.M.Fikhtengol'ts L.V.Kantorovich, D.K.Faddeev, O.A.Ladyzhenskaya, Yu.V.Linnik, B.A.Venkov. It was just in 1959 that, because of the endeavors of V.I.Smirnov and A.D.Aleksandrov, it got to be conceivable to sort out the Leningrad Mathematical Society. V.I.Smirnov was chosen privileged president of the general public, and Yu.V.Linnik president.
In 1965-1985, S.M.Lozinskii, was presidents of the general public. In 2008, Yu.V.Matiyasevich turned into its leader. At present, the general public joins for all intents and purposes every single dynamic mathematician of St. Petersburg and also various mathematicians working abroad (see Section Members). SPbMS is an aggregate individual from the European Mathematical Society and has tight contacts with the Moscow Mathematical Society and the American Mathematical Society.
