IMU is an international non-governmental and non-profit scientific organization, with the purpose of promoting international cooperation in mathematics. It is a member of the International Council for Science (ICSU).

The objectives of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) are:

To promote international cooperation in mathematics
To support and assist the International Congress of Mathematicians and other international scientific meetings or conferences
To encourage and support other international mathematical activities considered likely to contribute to the development of mathematical science in any of its aspects, pure, applied, or educational
Details about IMU

More precise objectives and detailed Information about the organization of IMU can be found in its statutes (and of course in the IMU server that you are currently visiting). Legally, IMU is an unincorporated association, recognized as a charitable organization by the internal revenue service of Berlin, Germany (Finanzamt Berlin-Charlottenburg). Ongoing activities concernig IMU are published in IMU Bulletins and in the bimonthly newsletter IMU-Net to which everybody can subscribe.

Publications about IMU

There are several publications about the International Mathematical Union.

John Ball, president of IMU for the period 2003-2006, provides a general survey on the work of IMU:

The IMU and You
published in "Notices of the AMS", Volume 52, Number 10, 2005. Further information about IMU and the state of mathematics can be found in an

interview about the role of mathematics and the preparations of ICM 2006 in Spain
that John Ball gave to Boletín de la Sociedad Española de Matemática Aplicada 33(2005)19-26.

IMU's former president David Mumford, 1995 - 1998, and Allyn Jackson, Senior Writer and Deputy Editor of the Notices of the American Mathematical Society, described the work and structure of IMU in the column »What is IMU?«, published in the Notices of AMS, Nov./Dec. 1994.

What is the IMU? by Allyn Jackson
How the IMU Can Work for the Community by David Mumford.
