# American Mathematical Society

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) is an association of professional mathematicians in the United States. Best known as the inventor of the Mathematics Subject Classification codes used by many math journals and PlanetMath, the AMS is a staunch advocate of TeX and LaTeX. The AMS publishes Mathematical Reviews.

Originally called the New York Mathematical Society, the AMS was founded in 1888 by Thomas Fiske upon returning to the New York after attending a meeting of the London Mathematical Society. In 1894 the name was changed to the American Mathematical Society and later on the headquarters were moved to Providence, Rhode Island, and offices were added in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Washington D.C.

Today, the AMS has more than 550 institutional members and almost thirty thousand individual members, and does much to support young people studying mathematics.

One of four partners of the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics, the AMS should not be confused with the Mathematical Association of America. The official website of the AMS is www.ams.org.

## Mathematical Reviews boycotts Muslims and Third World Countr...

Intellectual War

See how so called â€œMathematical Reviews,â€? â€œZentralblatt fuer Mathematik,â€? Institute for Scientific Information ignore

Muslim scientists and Third World Countriesâ€™ scientists, do not review their articles or books, or slander their work.

Incompetent reviewers for the above mentioned reviewing journals bring false accusations to Muslim and Third World Countriesâ€™ scientists, while exalting the Western scientists.

Everybody who dares not to follow the mainstream ideas which are manipulated by western secret services, is exposed to an international derision and his/her work attacked and destroyed, and slandered using a junk wikipedia manipulated by incompetent wiki editors who boycott the poor countriesâ€™ scientists and donâ€™t allow anybody to have different ideas from theirs in this phony western â€œdemocracyâ€?!

These western secret services try to confiscate the Internet in order to allow only their propaganda and to dominate and manipulate peopleâ€™s consciousness.

Dear Marcella,

You said: Incompetent reviewers for the above mentioned reviewing journals bring false accusations to Muslim and Third World CountriesÃ¢Â€ scientists, while exalting the Western scientists.

Could you provide examples? These are strong and serious accusations and you should back them up with evidence of this "incompetence" and "false accusations". Why do you think independent mathematicians would try to slander the work of researchers in the muslim world?

Accusations, shmaccusations... Here we are supposed to have fun with math. For moslem problems look for another forum.
