History of the journal

Opuscula Mathematica was founded in 1937 by Professor Antoni Hoborski, an outstanding mathematician, the first Rector Magnificus of the Mining Academy (currently AGH University of Krakow), a co-establisher of the Polish Mathematical Society. Since 1968 the journal has been published at various times, first as Zeszyty Naukowe Akademii Górniczo-Hutniczej im. Stanisława Staszica, Opuscula Mathematica (Scientific Bulletins of the University of Mining and Metallurgy, Opuscula Mathematica) but in 1994 editors decided to return to its original name Opuscula Mathematica. In the years 1985 to 2004 the journal was published annually, from 2005 to 2007 biannually, then from 2008 to 2014 quarterly. Since 2015 the journal has been published 6 times per year.

Professor Antoni Hoborski

Professor Antoni Hoborski was born in 1879 in Tarnów. He graduated from high school in Tarnów in 1897 and continued his education in Mathematics at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. Finishing his studies in 1901, he worked for eighteen years as a high school teacher in Kraków, Tarnów, and Nowy Sącz. In 1908 he received his PhD from the Jagiellonian University under the supervision of Prof. S. Zaremba. Between 1908 and 1910 he studied abroad and in 1909 was awarded a Bachelor Degree in Mathematics at the Sorbonne in Paris. Between 1909 and 1910 he studied in Göttingen, working on the Calculus of Variations and he attended the lectures by Klein and Hilbert. In 1911 he was employed as a contractor lecturer at the Jagiellonian University. In that year he was awarded a degree after defending his habilitation thesis "About some application of the minimal value rule". In 1919 he became the first professor in the newly created Academy of Mining in Krakow. He was its first rector and from 1919 he was also the dean of the Mining Faculty. He organised the School of Geometry and in 1919 participated in establishing the Polish Mathematical Society. In 1921 he was granted the professor degree from the Jagiellonian University. In 1925 the Department of Mathematics offered him the Chair. Though he rejected the offer he did give a number of lectures there, mainly on differential geometry. He published 66 scientific papers, including seven scripts and seven textbooks. His textbook "Theory of planes" included the first Polish lecture on Tensor Calculus, sadly the book was not completed due to his sudden death. His textbook "Theory of curves" (1933), where he consequently applied the Vector Method, was novel in the mathematical literature of the time. In 1939 his editorial and scientific activity was interrupted by the war. Antoni Hoborski died as a martyr in Konzentrationslager Sachsenhausen. To commemorate Professor Hoborski the cover of each issue of Opuscula Mathematica includes his picture.
