  • First of all, though a little late, let us take this opportunity for wishing you all a happy and prosperous new year 2073 BS marked by good health and humour, as well as by some innovative ideas for uplifting the Nepal Mathematical Society (NMS). NMS is a professional organization established by Nepali Mathematicians, which regularly conducts various activities such as seminars, talk programs, national and international conferences and symposia focusing on the different aspects of mathematics such as subject matters, recent trends of teaching and learning, and research results. We are very much delighted to bring out the 12th issue of the NMS newsletter on the auspicious occasion of its 38th anniversary. This newsletter highlights the activities of the Society and its members during Ashad 2072-Baishakh 2073 BS. In this issue of the newsletter, we have included an interview of Prof. Dr. Dharani Dhar Regmi and a brief biography of Prof. Dr. Bhadra Man Tuladhar. From the past few decades, NMS is actively involved in various activities for the upliftment of Mathematics in Nepalese context. The main challenge for the stakeholders of Mathematics is to revive Mathematics as a popular discipline. So, each life member of NMS has to be active, sincere and convinced to strengthen the capacity of NMS to transfer the knowledge and to build the strong foundation of Mathematics. We are grateful to our valued life members, executive committee (EC) members, members of all the sub-committees, well wishers and other organizations who have supported us in many ways and also for their kind cooperation to strengthen the activities of NMS. At the same time, we would like to thank all those organizations who have expressed their best wishes on our 38th anniversary through this newsletter. We hope that similar support and cooperation will continue in the days to come.

    It is a special honor and privilege to undertake my responsibility since August 2015 as the president of the NMS. I would like to thank our valued NMS members for electing me and the NMS Executive Committee (EC). On behalf of the NMS and its EC, I would like to highly acknowledge the tremendous efforts of our predecessor presidents (D.R. Bajracharya, R.M. Shrestha, R.P. Manandhar, S.R. Pant, H.N. Bhattarai and B.M. Tuladhar) and EC members and all bona fide NMS life members for bringing diversified academic activities and collaborations to the society. The NMS has been dedicated for achieving the academic excellence in study, teaching, research and applications in mathematics. Promotion of the professional ethics, rights, welfare and increasing popularity of mathematics are the additional goals of NMS. NMS has been working in establishing academic links nationwide and abroad. The NMS has been organizing talk programs, seminars, workshops, conferences on relevant topics with its own initiations and in collaborations with other institutions of Nepal and abroad. The NMS, also a member of AMS and an associate member of IMU and SEAMS, welcomes the experts from abroad. It also celebrates its anniversary every year and publishes its newsletter highlighting the achievements. We feel the need to organize more programs on some crucial issues such as the role of mathematics in society, industry and various fields, developing students’ interest in mathematics and simplification of mathematical concepts in teaching and learning. The NMS, ANMA and the mathematics departments of Tribhuvan and Kathmandu Universities are jointly organizing the international conference AMNS-2016. I would like to heartily appreciate the great efforts by all members and wish a grand success of the event on May 26-29 in Kathmandu. This energetic NMS EC team has a vision that, there is a lot more that NMS needs to do and hence targets to increase its activities. The society is open and believes that it will get stronger and more efficient through the feedbacks and contributions of its members and well wishers. Sincerely yours, Prof. Dr. Tanka Nath Dhamala President, NMS
