The London Mathematical Society dates back to Augustus De Morgan's wife, writing after his death described how the London Mathematical Society was founded: It was in the year that Mr Arthur Cowper Ranyard and George [George De Morgan, Augustus De Morgan's son] were discussing mathematical problems during a walk in the streets, when it struck them that it would be very nice to .

The Spitalfields Mathematical Society was established in In , it merged with the Royal Astronomical Society. Spitalfields Market was established in when Charles I gave a licence for flesh, fowl and roots to be sold in what was then known as Spittle Fields. The market currently receives aro visitors every d in: London, England ( - ). Math in Society is a free, open textbook. This book is a survey of contemporary mathematical topics, most non-algebraic, appropriate for a college-level topics course for liberal arts majors. The text is designed so that most chapters are independent, allowing the instructor to choose a selection of topics to be covered. Emphasis is placed on the applicability of the mathematics/5(10).

And it was the Huguenot immigrants who the Spitalfields Mathematical Society was originally aimed at, according to most accounts. De Morgan’s () “ A Budget of Paradoxes ” describes it thus: Among the most remarkable proofs of the diffusion of speculation was the Mathematical Society, which flourished from to   He was also a member of the Spitalfields Mathematical Society, which flourished from to (De Morgan, Budget of Paradoxes, p. ; see also pp. 80, ). He invented a computing board, which was described by his successor in the professorship, John Colson.

The Spitalfields Mathematical Society was founded in by Joseph Middleton. The society had 64 members when it was established, and at first meetings were held in the Monmouth's Head, a public house in the Spitalfields district of London. The Spitalfields Mathematical Society was founded in by Joseph Middleton who taught mathematics to sailors who required mathematical skills for navigating.

It met in a public house, the Monmouth's Head, in Spitalfields which is a district just outside the east side of the city of London. The Society long cherished a taste for exact science among the residents in the neighbourhood of Spitalfields, and accumulated a library of nearly volumes; but inwhen on the point of dissolution, the few remaining members made over their books, records, and memorials to the Royal Astronomical Society, of which these members were elected Fellows.

I was invited this afternoon to meet the Spitalfields Mathematical Society book Executive Director of the Royal Astronomical Society, one of our neighbours in the courtyard, and to see some of the books in their library. I was most struck by the fact that they have inherited books and manuscripts from the library of the Spitalfields Mathematical Society.

It is commonly believed that the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard invented the notion of “desire paths” (lignes de désir) to describe these pathways eroded by footfall in his book “The Poetics of Space,” inalthough, just like the mysterious provenance of these paths themselves, this origin is questioned by others.

Like many of the ‘societies’ of its time the Mathematical Society of Spitalfields, founded inwas run as a club where people of like minded interests could meet, discuss and debate the latest news, views and ideas of their chosen interest, in this case mathematics with a bit of physics thrown in for good measure.

Spitalfields Days are one day events of Survey Lectures for a general mathematical audience, which are attached to either meetings or symposia on specialist topics. The events are named Spitalfields Days in honour of the Spitalfields Mathematical Society, a precursor of the London Mathematical Society, which flourished from to The Spitalfields Mathematical Society.
