 A History of the International Mathematical Union
This is the history of international mathematical cooperation over the last hundred years - from the first international congress in 1897 to plans for the World Mathematical Year 2000.
Reflected in the history of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) is all the strife among world powers, as well as aspirations for cooperation among nations in an increasingly interdependent world.
But in the 1920s the IMU embraced principles of political neutrality, inviting every national mathematical organization to join the IMU, and this principle of nondiscrimination, while sometimes sorely tried, has held the IMU in good stead.

The Italian Mathematical Union was founded as L'Unione Matematica Italiana on 7 December 1922, largely due to the determination of Pincherle, but with considerable support from Bianchi and Volterra.
Many universities ran mathematical seminars which operated along the lines of a mathematical society, even to the extent of publishing proceedings which were distributed both nationally and internationally.
These International Unions would in turn operate with committees in the various countries worldwide and it was proposed that these national committees would be set up by the various National Academies of Science and National Research Councils.

 3 earn math, computer science awards / Prestigious honors for problem-solving skills to Frenchman, 2 from U.S.
The Fields Medal is generally regarded as the highest award in the field of mathematics, while the Nevanlinna award is among the most distinguished prizes in theoretical computer science.
The winners' "choice of problems, their methods, and their results are quite different from one another, and this diversity exemplifies the vitality of the whole of the mathematical sciences," said a statement from Jacob Palis, president of the International Mathematical Union.
For sheer incomprehensibility, much mathematical research is akin to the most esoteric forms of modern art or poetry: Those few who understand it praise its beauty while shrugging at its uselessness.
