Abstract

[From the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth century, many common traits were shared by national mathematical communities, which were not only separated geographically (from the Czech lands to Japan), and culturally (from northern to southern Europe), but which also varied from the point of view of the dynamism of original research (from Germany to the United States). Societies and journals were launched in the national languages, thanks to the widening of the social platform of mathematics and the emergence of a national leadership; the development of state school systems increased mathematical knowledge; and furthermore, mathematics played a role in and received encouragement from the processes of social and economic modernization and the evolution of state institutions. Intellectual competition among nations, very much a part of the spirit of the nineteenth century, seems to prevail over early Modern European universalism. A panorama of almost planetary dissemination of Western mathematics resulted from this evolution, leading eventually to a reinforcement of the international circulation of knowledge, which survived two world wars.]
