A Brief Introduction & History

The Forum is a registered trust in India. It is, in effect, an India based international society of scholars working in mathematical sciences and its partner areas (a partner area is defined as one where some knowledge of mathematical sciences is desirable to carry out research and development). The society was incepted in 1975 by a group of University of Delhi intellectuals led by Professor Bhu Dev Sharma. In 2013, the FIM is running into 38th years of active standing.

Right from the beginning, FIM had the support and association of India’s great mathematicians and also users of mathematics from different disciplines in the country and abroad. Following persons held the offices of President / Vice President in the last about 37 years.

FIM Purchases a Parcel of Land
An important step forward has been taken on May 11, 2010. FIM purchased a parcel of prime land measuring nearly 5000 (five thousand) sq. yds at a distance of about 30 miles from Delhi on Hwy 58.
It will be developed as a conglomeration of several units for Excellence in Interdisciplinary Mathematics.
