About

KWG was founded in 1778, with the goal to connect all mathematicians in the Netherlands and to stimulate the organization of mathematical activities. Moreover, the KWG, together with the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Wiskundeleraren supports PWN (Platform Wiskunde Nederland), which looks after the political wishes of mathematics in Holland.

Activities of the KWG are:

  • Supporting the Kaleidoscoopdagen
  • Organizing the yearly Dutch Mathematical Congress (NMC)
  • Organizing the Wintersymposium (for teachers)
  • Publishing the Nieuw Archief voor de Wiskunde (four times a year for all members, with information and articles about mathematics, in Dutch)
  • Publishing the Pythagoras, a mathematical magazine for students
  • Publishing the indagationes Mathematicae, an international mathematical magazine
  • Owning the Dutch mathematical legacy, like the archive of Brouwer

What can KWG do for Mathematics students?

  • One year of free membership, i.e., four times the Nieuw Archief voor de Wiskunde
  • Giving discount on going to the Dutch Mathematical Congress

The board of KWG exists of Erik van den Ban (UU), Theo van den Bogart (HU), Sonja Cox (UvA), Marije Elkenbracht (ABN AMRO), Marie-Colette van Lieshout (CWI/TU Twente), André Ran (VU), Mark Veraar (TU Delft), Jan Wiegerinck (UvA), and Danny Beckers (VU). These members are also the contact persons at different universities.
