Activities of “the History of Mathematics Society of Japan (Nihon Sugakushi Gakkai)*
The History of Mathematics Society of Japan started, as the present writer reported previously in our joural***, for the purpose of researches in the history of mathematics in general, not confined in particular fields of mathematics.However, the members of Society are inclined to restrict their field to Japanese mathematics and concentrate their studies in the history of the traditional ones — WASAN****. In fact, most of the members, with the exception of a few, have been keenly interested in WASAN.
The following are the table of contents which appeared in the recent issues of Sugakushi Kenkyu*****(or Journal of History of Mathematics, Japan).
