A society is a group of people involved in persistent social interaction, or a large social grouping sharing the same geographical or social territory, typically subject to the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations. Societies are characterized by patterns of relationships (social relations) between individuals who share a distinctive culture and institutions; a given society may be described as the sum total of such relationships among its constituent members. In the social sciences, a larger society often evinces stratification or dominance patterns in subgroups.
Insofar as it is collaborative, a society can enable its members to benefit in ways that would not otherwise be possible on an individual basis; both individual and social (common) benefits can thus be distinguished, or in many cases found to overlap.
A society can also consist of like-minded people governed by their own norms and values within a dominant, larger society. This is sometimes referred to as a subculture, a term used extensively within criminology.
The American Mathematical Society (AMS) is an association of professional mathematicians dedicated to the interests of mathematical research and scholarship, and serves the national and international community through its publications, meetings, advocacy and other programs.
The society is one of the four parts of the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics (JPBM) and a member of the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS).
It was founded in 1888 as the New York Mathematical Society, the brainchild of Thomas Fiske, who was impressed by the London Mathematical Society on a visit to England. John Howard Van Amringe was the first president and Fiske became secretary. The society soon decided to publish a journal, but ran into some resistance, due to concerns about competing with the American Journal of Mathematics. The result was the Bulletin of the New York Mathematical Society, with Fiske as editor-in-chief. The de facto journal, as intended, was influential in increasing membership. The popularity of the Bulletin soon led to Transactions of the American Mathematical Society and Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, which were also de facto journals.
The London Mathematical Society (LMS) is one of the United Kingdom's learned societies for mathematics (the others being the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA)).
The Society was established on 16 January 1865, the first president being Augustus De Morgan. The earliest meetings were held in University College, but the Society soon moved into Burlington House, Piccadilly. The initial activities of the Society included talks and publication of a journal.
The LMS was used as a model for the establishment of the American Mathematical Society in 1888.
The Society was granted a royal charter in 1965, a century after its foundation. In 1998 the Society moved from rooms in Burlington House into De Morgan House (named after the society's first president), at 57–58 Russell Square, Bloomsbury, to accommodate an expansion of its staff. The Society is also a member of the UK Science Council.

The American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute present the 2014 AMS Einstein Public Lecture in Mathematics with James H. Simons, the president of the Simons Foundation. Simons is a philanthropist, mathematician, investor, and financier who supports basic research in the sciences through the foundation he created with his wife, Marilyn.
Based on the 1987 London Mathematical Society Popular Lectures, this special 'television lecture' entitled "How Mathematics Gets Into Knots" is presented by Professor Ronald Brown. The London Mathematical Society is one of the oldest mathematical societies, founded in 1865. Despite it's name, it is the national learned society and is of international mathematical importance. The popular lectures are designed to be intelligible to a non-specialist audience, although A-Levels are useful. The lecturers are chosen for their mathematical distinction and their ability to communicate. The videos are suitable for all who have a serious interest in mathematics. That includes amateur mathematicians, sixth form mathematics students etc. Schools, Colleges and Universities find them invaluable. For ...

Our universe isn't just described by mathematics, but it is mathematics. Specifically, it's a mathematical structure. Our world doesn't just have some mathematical properties: it fundamentally has only mathematical properties. Subscribe for more science talks! http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe Why is mathematics so spectacularly successful at describing the cosmos? In this Ri talk, MIT physics professor Max Tegmark proposes a radical idea: that our physical world is not only described by mathematics, but that it is mathematics. He shows how this theory may provide answers to the nature of reality itself. This event was filmed at the Royal Institution on January 30 2014.

Colm Mulcahy presents the first of four Google Connected Classrooms to celebrate Mathematics Awareness Month. Schedule and details here: http://bit.ly/1qqXqxg Mathematicians don't lie. But magicians have been known to tell a few fibs to spice up their shows. Then there are mathemagicians, who combine mathematical principles with magic in their performances! Imagine a card trick where two people pick random cards from a deck, add up the numbers on the cards, and tell the mathemagician the total obtained. The mathemagician immediately names the two cards, values and suits! In this hangout you'll learn how to baffle your friends and relatives with this original creation of mathemagician Colm Mulcahy.

Cédric Villani, Mathematician; Author, Birth of a Theorem In conversation with David Eisenbud, Director, Mathematical Sciences Research Institute In 2010, French mathematician Cédric Villani received the Fields Medal, the most coveted prize in mathematics, in recognition of a proof which he devised with his close collaborator Clément Mouhot to explain one of the most surprising theories in classical physics. Birth of a Theorem is Villani's own account of the years leading up to the award. It invites readers inside the mind of a great mathematician as he wrestles with the most important work of his career. Join us for an insightful visit about mathematical thinking and its ability to enhance perception. In mathematics, as in any creative work, it is the thinker's whole life that propels d...
