WELLCOME TO THE HOME PAGE OF
THE MATHEMATICS STUDENT (Math Student ; ISSN 0025-5742 ) | |||
The Mathematics Student is being published since 1933. It is a quarterly periodical and the four numbers of it constitute a single volume. It is published in two parts: numbers 1 and 2 (January to June) as one part and numbers 3 and 4 (July to December) as the second part.
In fact, at the time of the
silver jubilee celebrations of the Society
on the occasion of completion of
twenty five years
of existence of the Indian Mathematical Society in 1932, it was decided to start the publication
of another periodical and accordingly the Society started in 1933 a new periodical, named
The Mathematics Student,
with
A. Narasinga Rao as its first Editor who
worked as the founder editor almost single-handed with great devotion for eighteen years
(1933-1950)and placed it on a firm footing.

Target group/Contents-regarding: In keeping with the current periodical policy, THE MATHEMATICS STUDENT will seek to publish material of interest not just to mathematicians with specialized interest but to the postgraduate students and teachers of mathematics in India. With this in view, it will ordinarily publish material of the following type: 1. research papers, 2. the texts (written in a way accessible to students) of the Presidential Addresses, the Plenary talks and the Award Lectures delivered at the Annual Conferences. 3. general survey articles, popular articles, expository papers, Book-Reviews. 4. problems and solutions of the problems, 5. new, clever proofs of theorems that graduate/undergraduate students might see in their course work, and 6. articles that arouse curiosity and interest for learning mathematics among readers and motivate them for doing mathematics. Articles of the above type are invited for publication in THE MATHEMATICS STUDENT.

Manuscript Submission: Manuscripts intended for publication should be submitted only online on msindianmathsociety@gmail.com , in .pdf file, including figures and tables, along with the duly completed Declaration form . to the Editorin-Chief The Mathematics Student on the E-mail address msindianmathsociety@gmail.com Manuscript Style: Manuscripts (including bibliographies, tables, etc.) should be typed double spaced on A4 size white paper with 1 inch (2.5 cm.) margins on all sides with font size 11 pt., in LaTeX. While typing in LaTeX, the following Preamble be used as is required by the Press: \documentclass[11 pt,a4paper,twoside,reqno]{amsart} \usepackage{amsfonts,amssymb,amscd,amsmath,enumerate,verbatim,calc} \renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.2} \textwidth = 12.5 cm \textheight = 20 cm \topmargin = 0.5 cm \oddsidemargin = 1 cm \evensidemargin = 1 cm \pagestyle{plain} Sections should appear in the following order : Title Page, Abstract, Text, Notes and References. Comments or replies to previously published articles should also follow this format with the exception of abstracts. Title Page: The Title page should include the manuscript title, authors’ names & permanent affiliations and the name, address & e-mail address of the author to whom page proofs and a watermarked soft copy of reprint is required to be sent. Abstract: The following page should include an abstract of not more than 100 words, a list of two to six key words and AMS subject classification (2000). Text: The text of the manuscript should begin on a new page. The introduction should have heading number 1. Subsequent section headings (including appendices) should be designated by Hindu-Arabic numerals (2,3,…etc.) and subsection headings should be numbered 2.1, 2.2, etc. Figures, tables and displayed equations should be numbered sectionwise consecutively throughout the text (1, 2,… etc.). Equation numbers should appear flush right in parentheses and running variables for equation (e.g., i =1,2,…, n) flush right in parentheses. References: Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the Authors. References in the body of the text should be in cross-reference style ((\cite{}) mode in LaTeX). Example: “… as mentioned in (\cite{}, \cite{}), Ramanujan (\cite{}) obtained the following result …”. references in the list at the end should be in alphabetical order of last name (not initials) and should be in bibliographic cross references mode/style. Examples: Reference to a journal publication: [1]. Birkhoff, G., Neutral elements in general lattices, Bull. Amer. Math. Soc. 46 (1940), 702--705. In LaTeX, \biitem{Birk} Birkhoff, G., Neutral elements in general lattices, \textit{Bull. Amer. Math. Soc.}, {\bf{46}}(1940), 702--705. Reference to a book: [1]. Munkres, J., Elements of Algebraic Topology, Addison–Wesley, 1984. In LaTeX, \bibitem{Munkrs} Munkres, J., \textit{Elements of Algebraic Topology}, Addison–Wesley, 1984. Illustration Style: Originals for illustrations should be sharp and of good contrast. Each Figure and Table should be mentioned in the text and numbered consecutively using Hindu-Arabic numerals. For each Figure and Table, its desired location in the text should be clearly specified. Each Figure and Table must have a caption. Example of proper style for captions : “Figure 1” or “Table 1”. Suggested Figure formats are : TIFF, GIF, EPS, PPT and Postscript. Files should be at least 300 dpi. | |||
