One hundred years of

L’Enseignement Mathématique

Professor M.K. Siu

The University of Hong Kong



        This is an account (from a personal angle) of an international symposium of the same title held at Geneva recently. The journal L’Enseignement Mathématique was established in Geneva in 1899 by H. Fehr and C.-A. Laisant, who wanted to associate the world of teaching to the "great movement of scientific solidarity" in the European arena at the end of the 19th century. Part of the talk will be on a brief history of the journal. Part of the talk will be on the learning and teaching of analysis in the mid 20th century, the topic the speaker is assigned to prepare for the symposium.
