The Swiss Academy of Natural Science

The Swiss Academy of Natural Science, or Schweizerische Naturforschende Gesellschaft, was founded in 1815. It had a mathematics section with the Society, the first President of this section being Schwarz. In 1869 Schwarz was appointed to a chair at Zurich but in 1875 he left to take up a chair at Göttingen. After Schwarz left Zurich the activities of the Mathematics Section of The Scientific Research Society of Switzerland rapidly faded out.

The Swiss Mathematical Society was founded in 1910 as a section of the Swiss Academy of Natural Science.
