International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (GAMM) promotes scientific development in all areas of applied mathematics and mechanics. For this purpose

  • the GAMM forms committees of experts on topical subjects of applied mathematics and mechanics
  • the GAMM constitutes several activity groups for all kinds of fields in applied mathematics and mechanics, where to the subject related workshops, especially for younger scientists, are organized
  • the scientists are invited to take part and to present their research results at the international scientific annual GAMM meeting
  • among other publications by the GAMM, the GAMM-Mitteilungen serves as a scientific journal and the GAMM-circular collects and provides information for all members
  • the GAMM delegates representatives to many national and international bodies
  • the GAMM cooperates with many other national and international organizations (e.g. DMV, EMS, ICIAM, IUTAM, EUROMECH, ECCOMAS, IFIP)
  • in remembrance of Richard von Mises, the GAMM honors outstanding scientific achievements in the areas of applied mathematics and mechanics. The Richard-von-Mises-Prize, including a monetary allowance, is awarded annually at the annual  GAMM meeting

The GAMM was founded in 1922 von Ludwig Prandtl and Richard von Mises. The society promotes cientific development in all areas of applied mathematics and mechanics. As legacy of the founding father the society cultivates international cooperation in applied mathematics as well in all areas of mechanics and physics relating to the foundations of the enginiering sciences. Historically, the society has played an essential role in the advancement of hydro- and aerodynamics, solid state mechanics as well as numerical and instrumental mathematics. GAMM is a society with a distinctly international organisation, currently more then 2000 members comprising.
