Its mission is the promotion of Pure and Applied Mathematics. The scope of action of the SML includes

- the organization of conferences, workshops, seminars, round table discussions etc.
- the edition of books, mathematical journals, newsletters etc.

### Famous quotes containing the words society and/or mathematical:

“... married women work and neglect their children because the duties of the homemaker become so depreciated that women feel compelled to take a job in order to hold the respect of the community. It is one thing if women work, as many of them must, to help support the family. It is quite another thing—it is destructive of woman’s freedom—if *society* forces her out of the home and into the labor market in order that she may respect herself and gain the respect of others.”

—Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

“The circumstances of human society are too complicated to be submitted to the rigour of *mathematical* calculation.”

—Marquis De Custine (1790–1857)
