The Vietnamese Mathematical Society was founded in 1965. This was at a time when North Vietnam came under attack from the United States with a large build up of American troops taking place throughout the year in an attempt to prevent a communist takeover of the whole country. The University of Hanoi was colsed down for four years, as were other educational institutions. It was the Vietnamese Mathematical Society which continued to support mathematical research with regularly organised seminars in optimisation, probability, functional analysis, algebra, and numerical analysis.
