János Bolyai Mathematical Society

The János Bolyai Mathematical Society (Bolyai János Matematikai Társulat, BJMT) is the Hungarian mathematical society, named after János Bolyai, a 19th-century Hungarian mathematician, a co-discoverer of non-Euclidean geometry. It is the professional society of the Hungarian mathematicians, applied mathematicians, and mathematics teachers. It was founded in 1947, as one of the two successor societies of the Mathematical and Physical Society (Matematikai és Fizikai Társulat) founded in 1891. It is a member-society of the European Mathematical Society.

The society publishes the following periodicals.


  • Manó Beke Commemorative Prize, given to at most 7 mathematics teachers (since 1950)
  • Géza Grünwald Commemorative Prize for young researchers (since 1953)
  • Gyula Farkas Commemorative Prize to young researchers in applied mathematics (since 1973)
  • Tibor Szele Commemorative Medal for major researchers who created scientific schools
