The Society was founded in 1991 and was registered in the Ministry of Justice in the same year. The main objective pursued by the society is to promote development and dissemination of mathematical knowledge in the Republic of Armenia. The main tool to achieve this goal the founders saw in joining up the efforts of professional mathematicians of the republic and foreign experts which either related to Armenia by their origin, or expressed interest in supporting mathematics in the country.

No less important were the integration of our specialists in the international family of mathematicians. As the first step this was reflected in the joining to the International Mathematical Union.

Various committees are established under the AMU, the most important of which is the Education Committee with the function of learning curricula, teaching methods and quality of textbooks used in the country.

The important activity is the regular calling of general meetings, which confer a tribune to our mathematicians and eminent specialists from abroad, and contributes to the expansion of horizons and mutual understanding of our scientists.

AMU periodically organizes thematic and general conferences.
