Welcome to Institute of Mathematics

About the IMA

The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) exists to support the advancement of mathematical knowledge and its applications and to promote and enhance mathematical culture in the Africa  and elsewhere, for the public good.

It is the professional and learned society for qualified and practising mathematicians, with a membership of around 5,000 comprising of mathematicians from all sectors, as well as those with an interest in mathematics.

Members of the Institute’s Boards and Committees.

Support and grants

Sources of funding from the Institute of Mathematics.

Awards and medals

These awards exist to recognise and reward outstanding achievements by mathematicians.


The Institute is committed to working with businesses that depend on Mathematics.

Corporate Affiliate Scheme

The IMA promotes and supports understanding, teaching, research and applications of Mathematics. The Institute invites organisations that also support Mathematics to become Mathematics Corporate Affiliates.

Friends of Mathematics

Organisations can be nominated to be a Friend of Mathematics for a number of reasons. They may, for example employ mathematicians, or promote mathematics, or support and encourage the teaching of mathematics.

Early Career Mathematicians

In 2005, the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications formed the Younger Members’ Group (YMG) to promote Mathematics to younger members and provide an opportunity for younger members to network. The group was spearheaded by Amanda Padbury, and the main focus of the YMG was two conferences run each year.

The Younger Members’ Conferences provided an opportunity for younger members to network and discuss the activities they would like to see the YMG do in the future. In 2007, it was identified that many of the potential activities were outside the scope of the conferences, and under Dan Tilley’s leadership a committee was set up to provide a focus for the YMG and its activities. In October 2009 the Group changed its name to the Early Career Mathematicians’ (ECM) Group in order to include mature graduates of Mathematics.


The aim of the IMA Early Career Mathematicians’ Committee is to provide a focus for the ideas and activities of the ECM Group, and to engage, empower and mobilise its membership in supporting the IMA’s charitable aims of promoting Mathematics..


Early Career Mathematicians’ are defined as:
•    Mathematicians within 15 years of graduating from a university mathematics degree, or
•    Members of the IMA who do not have a degree and are within the first 15 years of their membership.
The ECM group has been set up to engage, empower and mobilise Early Career Mathematicians (ECMs), and students of mathematics at university and provide them with support and an opportunity to network. Whilst it is expected that those defined as ECMs and students of mathematics at university will get the most out of this group’s events, everyone is welcome to attend events run by the group.

Potential Activities

We hope that you will join us by getting involved. The following are examples of potential activities:
•    Two Early Career Mathematicians’ Conferences per year
•    Provide input into Mathematics Today, other IMA Journals and our dedicated pages on the IMA website
•    Influence the IMA through representatives on the IMA Council and on other IMA Committees (e.g. Professional Affairs, Membership)
•    Provide/Receive advice and support on how to upgrade IMA membership or gain Chartership
•    Promote the IMA and mathematics to graduates, students (within schools, colleges and universities), businesses and charities
•    Provide/Receive advice and guidance on how to set up branches of the IMA in a local area to help promote mathematics further
•    Organize/Attend social events with a Mathematics flavour (e.g. a trip to Bletchley park).


Whether or not you feel that the UK government has delivered on its promises for improving education, be assured that the IMA Education Services Area (ESA) is active in promoting mathematics education at secondary and tertiary levels.

The IMA is a member of the Joint Council of Mathematics (JMC) and we inform the deliberations of the Advisory Committee for Mathematical Education (ACME). We operate through two committees:
•    The Higher Education Services Area (HEdSA)
•    The Schools and Further Education Group (S&FE) Group

For further details of the work of these committees follow the appropriate links.

The IMA is uniquely placed to comment on this range of activities. Members of the IMA work in Schools, Colleges and Universities and also in Industry, Commerce and Government Service, and so the Institute has access to information and opinion from many sectors of national life.


The Institute has a significant professional dimension, maintained and developed by the Professional Affairs Committee which, although comprising largely industrial members, also has academic representation. Professional Affairs within the Institute have been concerned with Initial and Continuing Professional Development, the development of chartered designations and improving our links with and services to industrial and commercial organisations. To keep abreast of developments in professional affairs, the IMA maintains Professional Affiliate status with the Engineering Council and is licensed by the Science Council to award the Chartered Scientist designation.

In this section of our website you will find information about Professional Membership, our Graduate Training Scheme, Initial and Continuing Professional Development.


The IMA Research Committee promotes the needs of mathematics and applied mathematics research.

The Committee works with funders and users of mathematics research. The activities include meetings with key stakeholders such as the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Research Council (UK), the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). At present many of the activities are focused on England, however the Institute will expand these activities to cover the whole of the United Kingdom. In addition the Research Committee advises, through consultations, in many areas of policy. For example, the Research Committee nominates candidates for the Research Excellence Framework Mathematical Sciences sub-panel, the EPSRC Special Advisory Team (Mathematical Sciences) and the EPSRC College.

Where possible, the Institute works within the Council for the Mathematical Sciences (the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, London Mathematical Society, Edinburgh Mathematical Society, Operational Research Society and the Royal Statistical Society) to provide a unified view.

The Research Committee has also played a leading role in the production of the Mathematics Matters Case Studies which demonstrate the ubiquity and enormous utility of modern mathematics research.

Girolamo Cardano International Institute of Mathematic

Gerolamo (or Girolamo, or GeronimoCardano (FrenchJérôme CardanLatinHieronymus Cardanus; 24 September 1501 – 21 September 1576) was an ItalianRenaissance mathematicianphysicianastrologer and gambler. He wrote more than 200 works on medicine, mathematics, physics, philosophy, religion, and music.[1] His gambling led him to formulate elementary rules in probability, making him one of the founders of the field.

He was born in Pavia, Lombardy, the illegitimate child of Fazio Cardano, a mathematically gifted lawyer, who was a friend of Leonardo da Vinci. In his autobiography, Cardano claimed that his mother had attempted to abort him. Shortly before his birth, his mother had to move from Milan to Pavia to escape the Plague; her three other children died from the disease.

In 1520, he entered the University of Pavia and later in Padua studied medicine. His eccentric and confrontational style did not earn him many friends and he had a difficult time finding work after his studies ended. In 1525, Cardano repeatedly applied to the College of Physicians in Milan, but was not admitted owing to his combative reputation and illegitimate birth.

Eventually, he managed to develop a considerable reputation as a physician and his services were highly valued at the courts. He was the first to describe typhoid fever. In 1553 he cured the Scottish Archbishop of St Andrews of a disease that had left him speechless and was thought incurable. The diplomat Thomas Randolphrecorded the “merry tales” rumoured about his methods still current in Edinburgh nine years later. Cardano himself wrote that the Archbishop had been short of breath for ten years, and after the cure was effected by his assistant, he was paid 1,400 gold crowns.


Today, he is best known for his achievements in algebra. Cardano was the first mathematician to make systematic use of numbers less than zero. He published the solutions to the cubic and quartic equations in his 1545 book Ars Magna. The solution to one particular case of the cubic equation (in modern notation), was communicated to him by Niccolò Fontana Tartaglia (who later claimed that Cardano had sworn not to reveal it, and engaged Cardano in a decade-long fight), and the quartic was solved by Cardano’s student Lodovico Ferrari. Both were acknowledged in the foreword of the book, as well as in several places within its body. In his exposition, he acknowledged the existence of what are now called imaginary numbers, although he did not understand their properties (described for the first time by his Italian contemporary Rafael Bombelli, although mathematical field theory was developed centuries later). In Opus novum de proportionibus he introduced thebinomial coefficients and the binomial theorem.

Cardano’s eldest and favorite son was executed in 1560 after he confessed to having poisoned his cuckolding wife. His other son was a gambler, who stole money from him. He allegedly cropped the ears of one of his sons. Cardano himself was accused of heresy in 1570 because he had computed and published the horoscopeof Jesus in 1554. Apparently, his own son contributed to the prosecution, bribed by Tartaglia. He was arrested, had to spend several months in prison and was forced to abjure his professorship. He moved to Rome, received a lifetime annuity from Pope Gregory XIII (after first having been rejected by Pope Pius V) and finished hisautobiography. It appears that he was still practicing medicine up to his death in 1576.

Our Institute Proud to bear the name of this Advocate of Mathematics.
