Description

These proceedings report the fifth seminar and general assembly of the Canadian Mathematical Congress, with the University of Montreal as host. The first such meeting was in 1945, and it too was in Montreal with McGill University as host. In the preface to the Proceedings of the first Congress assembly there is the following statement: "It is the hope and belief of many that this Congress will be the beginning of important mathematical developments in Canada."

 

Le present ouvrage constitue un compte rendu du huitième séminaire biennal et du cinquième congrès de la Société Mathématique du Canada tenus à l’Université de Montréal Durant l’été 1961. Le congrès de foundation de notre Société eut lieu à Montréal en 1945 a l’Université McGill.
