Recréations mathématiques pour mathématiciens en culottes courtes (School children play with and display mathematics)

Under the guidance of their teachers and of a professional mathematician based at the Palais de la Découverte, one of the two science museums in Paris, school children from two classes in a primary school of Chilly-Mazarin (Essonne, France) will play at making toy models of mathematical puzzles. These puzzles will later be proposed to the imagination of artists who will be asked to turn them into attractive sculptures to be placed in the city park for public display and enjoyment.
The whole operation has been conceived and will by supervised by Max Leguem, head of the Centre Culturel of the city of Chilly-Mazarin.

Posters in the London Underground

During World Mathematical Year 2000, a sequence of posters designed at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences will be displayed month by  month in the trains of the London Underground. We hope that these will stimulate, fascinate - even infuriate! But most importantly that they will  bring maths to life, illustrating the wide applications of modern mathematics in all branches of science - physical, biological, technological and financial. As each poster appears it will also be added to our Website, together with explanatory notes.

Macau, 11-14 January 2000

Mathematics occupies a crucial and unique role in the human societies and represents a strategic key in the development of the whole mankind. The ability to compute, related to the power of technology and to the ability of social organisation, and the geometrical understanding of space-time, that is the physical world and its natural patterns, show the scientific and cultural role of Mathematics in the history of Civilisation and in the future development of the Information Society.

With the aim of celebrating this theme, the first international conference held in the World Mathematical Year 2000 was organised by a Portuguese-Chinese committee, chaired by Iu Vai Pan, Rector of the University of Macau that hosted the meeting. The international scientific committee, chaired by J.-L. Lions former IMU President, selected a number of invited speakers and three main topics for the round tables on Mathematics, History and Culture, Technology and Development and Computers and Information Society, respectively.

Some of the main aspects of the conference subject were illustrated, from an historical perspective, by Wu Wen-Tsun (Beijing) and Hsiang Wu-Yi (Hong-Kong) with tentative comparisons of the mathematical achievements in ancient Chinese and ancient Greece, by Luis Saraiva (Lisboa) with an overview of the growing use of mathematical techniques during the Age of Discoveries with a reference to the Portuguese seafarers and scientist of the 15th and 16th centuries and their contributions, and by Qi Minyou (Wuhan) that described the Chinese translation of the Euclid's "Elements" initiated in the beginning of the 17th century with the aid of M.Ricci. The choice of the city of Macau for this conference honours its significant historical role as a bridge of commercial and cultural exchanges between the East and Western civilisations, since the beginning of the Portuguese presence in 1557, and its future continuation after the return to China the 20 December 1999.

Partial topics of contemporary mathematics were illustrated by Constantine Dafermos (Providence), that surveyed aspects of the theory of partial differential equations, over the past century, highlighting the close interaction with physics and technology, by Irene Fonseca (Pittsburgh) that referred new developments in the calculus of variations and current issues in phase transitions and image segmentation in computer vision, by Jean Mawin (Louvain) that treated spectral theory and its role in functional analysis and non-linear problems in theoretical physics, and by Alfio Quarteroni (Lausanne and Milano) that illustrated the increasing importance of mathematical models in life sciences with the example of analysis of cardiovascular diseases.

The development of research in mathematics in several countries and how socio-economic factors favour or hinder it, was examined by M.N. Narashimhan (Bombay and Trieste), the role of numerical and non-numerical tools in the modelling of technological processes was analysed by E.R. de Arantes e Oliveira (Lisboa) and several aspects of the cross-fertilisation between computer science and mathematics, including examples related to fundamental data structures and database algorithms, computational geometry and number theory, or communication protocols, were illustrated by Philippe Flajolet (Paris).

The round table on Mathematics, History and Culture, organised by J.F. Queiro' (Coimbra), had its focus on important moments of the mathematical past and present on social, cultural and philosophical problems, included topics such as mathematical museology by E. Giusti (Firenze), mathematics and music by J.F.Rodrigues (Lisboa), history on Indian mathematics by Bhadra Man Tuladhar (Kathmandu) and aspects of the mathematical thinking, practices and categories by E. Knobloch (Berlin).
The round table on Mathematics, Technology and Development, organised by A. Damlamian (Paris), illustrated the role of mathematics in the technological development of their country or region with the presentation of personal views of how future developments are envisaged in the beginning of the 21st century. The participants came from Australia, N. Barton (Sydney), from the USA, A. Friedman (Minneapolis), from China, Li Ta-tsien (Shanghai) and from Europe, R. Jeltsch (Zurich).
Finally the round table on Mathematics, Computers and Information Society was organised by Zhou Chaochen (Macau), director of the International Institute for Software Technology of the United Nations University. In addition to C.Zhou, that presented some examples of the impact of mathematical logic in computer science, E. Neuwirth (Vienna) illustrated recent aspects of computer supported didactic of mathematics, P. Veiga (Lisboa) referred the new paradigms and new skills of life in the Information Society and G. Kahn (Paris) emphasised the role of mathematics and computer science in the Society of Knowledgement.
The overall outcome of this conference will appear in book form and has contributed not only to highlight significant aspects of the contents and meaning of Mathematics as a driving force in human progress, but also to show the role of the contribution that Mathematics had played and will continue to play in History as a major factor for the development of an increasingly global world and civilisation.

The "Fifth Forum of Young Women Mathematicians" ("Cinquième Forum des Jeunes Mathématiciennes") was held at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris, France, on Friday and Saturday, January 21-22, 2000. This annual meeting is an excellent occasion for scientific exchange and gives young researchers the opportunity to present their work in a stimulating environment. This year, it was part of the French program for the WMY2000 Project (World Mathematical Year 2000), also sponsored by UNESCO. The forum always consists of a scientific part, which gives an overview of the current state of mathematical research, and a historical-sociological part, which is intended to stimulate debates on current issues of women in the scientific community. This year, the scientific talks were given by twelve young mathematicians and six established mathematicians from all over France and Europe. The first debate was introduced by historians Delphine Gardey and Michelle Perrot, and followed the talk "Historical approach to relations between women, science and technology" by Delphine Gardey. The second debate, "Parity in the scientific community", was introduced by Claudine Hermann (Professor at the Ecole Polytechnique and member of E.T.A.N.) who reported on the activity of the European community about the question of Women and Science.

The forum program is available at the web-site: http://www.desargues.univ-lyon1.fr/home/fem/agjan00.html

This meeting was organized by the association "femmes et mathématiques"

Rockefeller Foundation, Bellagio Study and Conference Center (Italy)
May 8-12, 2000

The purpose of the Bellagio conference was to bring together an international team of scholars, some of whom had worked together before, to allow thorough discussion of the transmission of mathematics between cultures across Europe and Asia. During an intensive week of lectures and discussion, participants focused their attention on early mathematical works, especially those in China, India, the Arabic/Islamic world, and the late Middle Ages/Renaissance in Europe, in order to explore evidence of direct and indirect influences, possible connections, and various means by which the problems or methods devised in one particular place and time found their way to other points, often very far apart in place and time.

The Rockefeller Foundation's Bellagio Conference Center, the Villa Serbelloni, provided a quiet, reflective atmosphere in which we were able to accomplish a substantial amount of work in a relatively short period of time. In the course of seven morning and afternoon sessions, twenty-one studies were presented and discussed in detail by the group.

The list of participants with the titles of their contributions can be found at http://www.iwr.uni-heidelberg.de/transmath.

In response to the comments and suggestions made during the course of the meeting, the papers prepared for the Bellagio conference will be further revised over the next few months. This proceedings will appear as a volume of Boethius, a series published by Steiner Verlag in Stuttgart, Germany. The Editorial Board is comprised of Joseph W. Dauben, New York, Yvonne Dold-Samplonius, Heidelberg, and Menso Folkerts, Munich.
