## Welcome to Bihar Mathematical Society

The Bihar Mathematical Society (BMS) was established on 01st February 1958 at Bhagalpur.
The aim and objective of the society is to provide a common platform for teachers, scientists
and research scholars from different parts of the country to exchange ideas for improvement
in the field of Mathematics.About700 National and International Life members of the
society have been contributing substantially to the activities of
Bihar Mathematical Society directed towards attainment of its goal.
The society was registered in 1983 under the society Registration Act XXI of 1860.

** 1.Founder Member of BMS:**

state D.Sc Degree in Mathematics of the University of Paris and long after didPh.D
from Liverpool in 1931. During his stay in Europe he visited many countries like
Scotland, Germany, England, Ireland,France,Italy and came in contact with mathematicians
likeProf.G. Hardy, Lebesgue, Hilbert, Hadamard and several Eminent Mathematician
of the world.

**2.Patron Members:**

The Chancellor of the Universities of Bihar shall be Ex-officio
Chief patron. The Vice-Chancellor of each University of Bihar shall be an Ex-officio

and Statistics of every University of Bihar shall be an Ex-officio member of the
society.

**3.Aims & Objectives of theSociety :**

The aim of society is to encourage and promote
study and research works in India and beyond the sea. Its work is to compile publish
journals,books and reports. Society also invite outstanding scholars to deliver
memories and special lectures on their own contributions. Society also assists,
subscribe to cooperate with other society having objectives similar to itself. For
establishing a forum for the research workers and teachers for exchange of ideas
through regular periodic meetings. Except this to remove phobia of mathematics among
students, to select talented students through TSTM Olympiad, its aim is to train
the students by Talent nurture programme and to create much interest for the subject
of mathematics.

** 4. Journal of Bihar Mathematical Society**

Bihar Mathematical Society has been publishing its journal named as “Journal of
the Bihar Mathematical Society”(JBMS) since 1961.The first Volume of Journal was
released by former Vice-Chancellor Prof. B.P Jamuar in 1961. The ISSN No. of the
Journal is 0972-8716 .

**5. Conferences & Seminars: **

So far 11 conferences of BMShave been held in the Universities and Colleges of Bihar.
The first conference was held on 1970 and after that manyconferences, seminars and
workshops were held by BMS.

**6.Talent Search Test in Mathematics Olympiad**

Bihar Mathematical Society has been organising Talent Search Test in Mathematics
(TSTM) since 1993 for school going students of standards VIII and IX in all over
Bihar. It was also started from 2002 for the students for the class of VI and VII.
Society has been organising TSTM olympiad for class VI to XII from 2020.

**7. Talent Nurture Programme :**

Bihar Mathematical Society has been conducting Talent Nurture Programme in different
levels since 2020 in all Districts of Bihar. The objective of of the programme is
to identifying and nurturing talented students through Training,Seminar, Conference,Workshop,
lecture and Mathematical exhibitions. It is also to strengthen their foundation
in Mathematics and enable them to evolve into outstanding Mathematicians and Teachers.
The students are selected on their performance in the written and oral test. The
programme will help the students to understand fundamentals of Mathematics,and overall
serve the basic needs to pursue higher study in Mathematics.

The programme will be classified into three categories:

**(i) Level – I TNP for students of class VI to XII.**

(a) Sub Level –I (class VI to VIII.)

(b) Sub Level –II (class XI & X)

(c) Sub Level-III (Class XI &XII)

**(ii) Level –II TNP for students of B.Sc and M.Sc.**

(a) Sub Level –I (class B.Sc and Competition Exam.)

(b) Sub Level –II (class M.Sc and Competition Exam.)

** (iii) Level –III TNP for competitive examinations**

Like UPSC, BPSC, NET, Banking, SSC and other competitive Examinations
