Prof. Anja Schlömerkemper
President of ISIMM
"Welcome to the new webpages of ISIMM. I very much hope that this will stimulate further interaction between mechanics and mathematics."
On Monday, Oct. 10th, 2022, morning, Gianfranco Capriz passed away. He was a scholar in mathematical physics, a National Fellow of the Accademia dei Lincei, a fellow of the Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti and of the European Academy of Sciences, a professor emeritus of the University of Pisa, a former student of the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa.
Professor Capriz served as president of ISIMM from 1996 til 2000.
The history of both mechanics and mathematics shows much evidence of the beneficial influence of each of these disciplines on the other.
Mechanics is understood here in the broad sense of the word, including relevant physical phenomena such as electromagnetic and thermal fields.
It is the purpose of this Society to promote the interaction of mathematics and mechanics. With this objective, international meetings shall be organized for the presentation and discussion of research at the interface of the two disciplines.
