Brief History of the Journal

In 1941, the forerunner of Kyushu Journal of Mathematics, "Memoirs of Faculty of Science, Kyushu Imperial University, Series A: Mathematics", was started by the members of Department of Mathematics at Kyushu University. After interruption by the World War II from 1944 to 1947, it is continued until 1993 with deletion of "Imperial" from the title. In 1994, it merged with another journal "Mathematical reports, College of General Education, Kyushu University" and made a fresh-start under the present title. In 2005, it launched its on-line version. The former chief editors (since 1995) to date are

  • Katsuhiro SHIOHAMA (1995 - 1998)
  • Masaaki YOSHIDA (1998 - 2012)
  • Hideki KOSAKI (2013 - 31 March, 2016)
