The Nepal Mathematical Society is an association of professional mathematicians dedicated for promotion of mathematical sciences in the country. The society annually published various publications, and held conferences and talk programs at local and national level. The first president the Nepal Mathematical Society is Prof. Dhup Ratna Bajracharya.
Establishment of an Institute for enhancing mathematical research and education through sound activities was realized in 2019 B.S.[clarification needed] The informal discussion happened between and among the most enthusiastic mathematicians and students of the master's degree program in a picnic program in 2019 B.S. Primarily those parental figures of the institution were Prof. Ashutosh Ganguly, Prof. Krishna Murari Saxena, Prof. Govinda Dev Pant, Prof. Keshav Dev Bhattarai, Prof. Dhup Ratna Bajracharya including the students Ram Man Shrestha, Shankar Raj Pant. The Society attained its legal status in 2035/10/05 B.S.
The Nepal Mathematical Society aims:
- To enhance the academic excellency in studying, teaching, research and applications in mathematics.
- To preserve and promote the professional ethics and rights and welfare of teachers and researchers of mathematics.
- To work continuously for promoting mathematics maintaining good relations with the national and international educational and academics.
