A letter from Patrick Bangert,
In late 1999, a questionnaire was circulated among physicists
asking several questions about the past, present and future of physics.
We are doing research of a similar nature for mathematics. In our endeavour,
we wish to discover what fascinates mathematicians about their subject,
how they came into the field and what they think about it now. In this
research, we are interviewing mathematicians and circulating a questionnaire.
Among the mathematicians supporting our research with individual interviews
are Louis H. Kauffman, John H. Conway and Michael V. Berry.
For ease of participation, the questionnaire is available in an online

In the spring of 1999, the European Mathematical Society announced
a competition to encourage the idea of creating posters with a mathematical
theme that would catch the eye and be representative of mathematics and
its uses (the information about this competition has been distributed by
the SPbMS too). Here are the results
of this competition.

the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union (FSU) announces:
a new competition for
its Cooperative Grants Program. This program will provide one-
to two-year support to joint US-FSU research teams in all areas of basic
and applied research and development. The average anticipated grant size
is $40,000.00 USD per year over a one- to two-year period. Proposal deadline
will be May 18, 2001.
Basic Research and Higher
Education Program. This program seeks to improve the higher education
infrastructure for scientific research by establishing high-quality Research
and Education Centers within Russian universities.

I am writing to invite you to submit your papers for publication in
the "International Journal of Mathematics
and Mathematical Sciences." IJMMS is a 23 years old, refereed, weekly
math journal publishing research papers, research notes, and review articles
in all areas of pure and applied mathematics... IJMMS is reviewed/indexed
in Mathematical Reviews, Zentralblatt für
Mathematik, and Applied Mechanics Reviews, among others. All papers
published in IJMMS are available online in full-text to the journal's print
edition subscribers. Those who do not have IJMMS subscription can access
a free on-screen version of published articles.

CabriWorld invites to its international
conference which will be held on June 14-17, 2001 in the rooms at
the UQAM in Montreal (Canada). This conference will be completely dedicated
to the Cabri-Geometry computer program. It addresses all teachers (of primary
level to university) to all students in mathematics, computer science or
physics, to all beginners or experts who want information, training as
well as educational applications of Cabri-Geometry directly useful in class.

NUMERICA -A Library of Source
Codes for teaching, research and applications by E. F. Toro.
This software library is potentially of use to scientists involved
in teaching, research or consultancy in any of the following areas:
Numerical Analysis of PDEs
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
NUMERICA is a library of source codes for solving hyperbolic
partial differential equations using a broad range of modern, high
resolution shock capturing conservative and non-conservative numerical
methods. Most of the programs are based on upwind schemes of the
Godunov and Flux Vector Splitting type but also included are centred
flux and slope limiter TVD methods. Exact and several approximate
Riemann solvers form the basic routines of the many schemes of first
and higher order of accuracy included in the library.
