Subject: Invitation to Australia's Mathematical Scientists


Dear Colleague in the Mathematical Sciences,

I am writing to invite you to consider joining the Australian Mathematical Society, if you are not already a member.

The Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS) is the national society of the mathematics profession in Australia. Founded in 1956, its mission is the promotion and extension of mathematical knowledge and its applications. It aims to represent all professional mathematicians in Australia, whether pure or applied. The special interests of the latter are represented by ANZIAM, standing for "Australia and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics", which is a division of AustMS.

What does the Society do?

Mathematics and the community



Other services

An application form for AustMS membership (with the further option of joining ANZIAM) can be downloaded from the AustMS Web site, The subscription for the year 2000 is $74 (but only half this amount for the first year of membership) plus $12 for the option of ANZIAM membership. (For student members the annual subscription is only $18.50. Please encourage your graduate students to join.)

To conclude, if you are not already a member of AustMS (or ANZIAM) then please support our profession and consider membership. On the other hand, if you feel that AustMS is not an appropriate body for you, then please consider joining one or more of Australia's other professional societies in the mathematical and statistical sciences, such as the Statistical Society of Australia or the Combinatorial Mathematics Society of Australasia, or the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia.

Please feel free to get in touch with me on (02) 9385-7038 or email, or to contact any other member of Council.


Yours sincerely,


Ian H Sloan

President, Australian Mathematical Society
