Mathematical Activities in Greece
At the end of February 1966 on the way back to London from a visit to Israel's universities (concerning which a separate report will be written), I had an opportunity to stop over in Athens. Brief visits were made to the Mathematics Departments of the University of Athens and the Polytechnic Institute (Technical University). Furthermore, Professor P. Rokkas of the University of Salonika was visiting the Polytechnic (where he will assume a new chair this fall) at the same time, so I had an opportunity to meet mathematicians from all three of Greece's universities. Two new universities, at Patras and at Ionnina, are to be established, but I did not learn anything about the proposed size or scope of these institutions. While instruction and research in mathematics are evidently in a rather sorry state, it may nevertheless be worthwhile to submit the following brief account of my visit.
