It is with great sadness that we report the death of Chandler Davis (12 August, 1923 — 24 September, 2022), former editor-in-chief of the Mathematical Intelligencer. An obituary will follow in the journal.
Snapp (Springer Nature’s Article Processing Platform) is our new peer review platform, replacing the previous system, Editorial Manager.
The Intelligencer is about to get a new look! New masthead, new logo, new fonts, new colors . . . Because we have quite a number of things already published online, the rollout of the new design will necessarily be gradual. Beginning with issue 44.1 (spring 2022), you’ll see the new masthead, the new format for the front matter, and the new style on any newly typeset articles/columns. But everything in the old format that has already been published online will also appear in the old format in print. Over the course of the coming year, then, we shall see the journal transform itself before our very eyes, slowly taking on its new look from cover to cover!
We hope you will be as excited about the changes as we are!
Karen, Sergei, and David
Virtual Conference: 'Mathematics at the Intersection of Art, Culture, and History: In Celebration of The Mathematical Intelligencer and Marjorie Senechal' Video Now Available
We are proud that we were able to present this virtual conference to celebrate the legacy of The Mathematical Intelligencer and Marjorie Senechal’s tenure as the Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief. We hope that everyone who had the chance to attend the conference enjoyed it. We also want to thank all of the speakers for their wonderful contributions that day, as well as our hosts and organizers, Karen Parshall and Sergei Tabachnikov.
The video of the conference can be found here:
The Mathematical Intelligencer will publish a special issue in honor and memory of John Horton Conway (1937–2020). Although articles are currently being solicited for this special issue, unsolicited contributions are also welcome.
The issue, which will appear in Volume 43(2), June 2021, will cover the many facets of John’s mathematical work and persona. Submissions should be five to ten pages in length (though this limit is flexible), and can be biographical in nature or focus on an area of research that John was identified with or felt some particular affinity with.
Submission Deadline: December 31, 2020
I am delighted to announce that, after a year-long search for the next Editor-in-Chief of this magazine, Karen Parshall (University of Virginia) and Sergei Tabachnikov (Penn State University) have agreed to serve as co-Editors-in-Chief, beginning in January 2021 (vol. 43, no. 1).
The Chandler Davis Prize for Expository Excellence was established in 2014 to encourage and reward excellent expository writing in mathematics. It will be awarded annually for an article or column essay published in The Mathematical Intelligencer in the three previous calendar years.
