Important information regarding the recent AMS power outage.

The transformer that provides electricity to the AMS building in Providence went down on Sunday, April 22. The restoration of our email, website, AMS Bookstore and other systems is almost complete. We are currently running on a generator but overnight a new transformer should be hooked up and (fingers crossed) we should be fine by 8:00 (EDT) Wednesday morning. This issue has affected selected phones, which should be repaired by the end of today. No email was lost, although the accumulated messages are only just now being delivered so you should expect some delay.

Thanks for your patience.


Volunteer Opportunities for Mathematical Scientists

The AMS is developing a list of volunteer opportunities suitable for students, mathematical scientists, and retired mathematicians.  Please send your suggestions for this page to the address below. 
  • ReSET is a non-profit organization that places volunteer mathematicians, scientists, engineers in Washington DC area elementary school classrooms to lead students in science and math experiments.
  • The AMS Book Donation Program helps arrange and support donations of printed mathematical literature to mathematical libraries in developing countries.
