Past and Present in Mathematics: Notes from the CSHPM

The Canadian Mathematical Society has invited the CSHPM/SCHPM to contribute a regular column, "Past and Present in Mathematics: Notes from the CSHPM," to their official newsletter, the CMS Notes. [You can click here to see the archive of all past columns.] The column will present descriptions of current scholarship and perspectives on the history and philosophy of mathematics from members of our society to the wider Canadian mathematical community.

All CSHPM members are invited to contribute. Columns can cover your own scholarly work or work familiar to you in other spheres; they can focus on single themes or offer broad surveys. Obviously, they can assume a readership sophisticated in mathematics but not necessarily alert to historical and philosophical issues. Submissions in French and in English are welcome; they should not run more than about 1,200 words, including references. Microsoft Word, pdf and TeX are all acceptable formats.

To submit a column, ask questions, or make suggestions, please contact the editors, Amy Ackerberg-Hastings and Hardy Grant.
