The German Mathematical Society (German: Deutsche Mathematiker-Vereinigung, DMV) is the main professional society of German mathematicians and represents German mathematics within the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and the International Mathematical Union (IMU). It was founded in 1890 in Bremen with the set theorist Georg Cantor as first president. Founding members included Georg Cantor, Felix Klein, Walther von Dyck, David Hilbert, Hermann Minkowski, Carl Runge, Rudolf Sturm, Hermann Schubert, and Heinrich Weber.[1]

The current president of the DMV is Ilka Agricola (2021-2022).


In honour of its founding president, Georg Cantor, the society awards the Cantor Medal. The DMV publishes two scientific journals, the Jahresbericht der DMV and Documenta Mathematica. It also publishes a quarterly magazine for its membership the Mitteilungen der DMV.[2] The annual meeting of the DMV is called the Jahrestagung; the DMV traditionally meets every four years together with the Austrian Mathematical Society (ÖMG) and every four years together with the Gesellschaft für Didaktik der Mathematik (GDM). It sometimes organises its meetings jointly with other societies (e.g., 2014 with the Polish Mathematical Society, PTM, or 2016 with the Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, GAMM). Twice annually, it organises the Gauß Lecture, a public audience lecture by well-known mathematicians.[3]

Cantor Medal

The Cantor Medal was awarded to the following mathematicians: 1990: Karl Stein, 1992: Jürgen Moser, 1994: Erhard Heinz, 1996: Jacques Tits, 1999: Volker Strassen, 2002: Yuri Ivanovitch Manin, 2004: Friedrich Hirzebruch, 2006: Hans Föllmer, 2008: Hans Grauert, 2010: Matthias Kreck, 2014: Herbert Spohn, 2017: Gerd Faltings, 2019: Hélène Esnault,[4][5] 2021: Martin Grötschel.[6]


Since 1995, the DMV is led by a president, before that by a chairperson.[7]
