# IMU Circular Letter 01/98

### Rio de Janeiro, January 28, 1998

**TO ALL:** ADHERING ORGANIZATIONS

NATIONAL COMMITTEES FOR MATHEMATICS

**SUBJECT:** Change group of Canada

Dear Colleagues,

The Executive Committee of IMU on its 63rd Meeting, decided to recommend **Canada** to change from Group IV to Group V, in the IMU structure, as of January 1st, 1998. So, please, find enclosed a sample of their mathematical activities. Besides the names of 75 renowned colleagues mentioned in the document, covering several areas of mathematics, there are many more active research mathematicians in Canada. Information on many of them (those who are members of the Canadian Mathematical Society) can be accessed by exploring the Web Sit of the CMS at: `http://www.math.ca/`. At `www.math.cacms/search/` you are able to obtain information such as the names of people at specific locations, or working in certain areas of mathematics. Member's research articles may be found in MathSciNet. In case of any difficulty in accessing such addresses, the IMU Secretariat will be pleased to help, upon request. We also include here the corresponding Postal Ballot (Numbers 1/98) that I ask you to send us back with your vote as soon as possible.

Please notice that the Postal Ballot is the responsibility of the Adhering Organizations. We are sending the correspondence also to the National Committees to keep them well informed.

Thank you very much for your cooperation,

Sincerely Yours,

Jacob Palis

Secretary of IMU

**PS: TO THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE -** We take the occasion to remind the National Committees for Mathematics that the names of their delegates for the General Assembly should please be sent to the IMU Secretariat before MARCH 1, 1998. Thank you again for your cooperation.
