"Turkish Contributions to Mathematical Sciences"
Abstract: Although in a journey backwards in time the questions of ethnicity and scientific taxonomy tend to become inextricably complicate d and possibly meaningless, it can be argued that there is at least a millennium of Turkish interaction with mathematical sciences, intermittent and feeble as it is. In the opinion of the speaker and on a more optimistic note, at the end of the relatively stable last ninety year interval of our history we may look forward to individual research of greater significa nce as well as to the establishment of mathematical schools of lasting impact.
