The Polish Mathematical Society (Polish: Polskie Towarzystwo Matematyczne) began in Kraków, Poland in 1917. It was originally simply called the Mathematical Society. It was officially constituted on April 2, 1919. Hugo Steinhaus, Stefan Banach and Otto Nikodym were among the founders.
Ever since its foundation, the Society's main activity was to bring mathematicians together by means of organizing conferences and lectures. The second main activity is the publication of its annals "Annales Societatis Mathematicae Polonae", consisting of
- Series 1: Commentationes Mathematicae
- Series 2: Wiadomości Matematyczne ("Mathematical News"), in Polish
- Series 3: Matematyka Stosowana ("Applied Mathematics"), in Polish
- Series 4: Fundamenta Informaticae
- Series 5: Didactica Mathematicae, in Polish
- Series 6: Antiquitates Mathematicae, in Polish
- Series 7: Delta, in Polish
The annals are also known under the Polish name "Roczniki Polskiego Towarzystwa Matematycznego" and under the English name "Polish Mathematical Society Annals".
