Mathematics Today in Ghana

**Indigenous mathematics research activities
in Ghana?**

**We have learned of an Anton
Amo, who studied Philosophy (Mathematics was a part of Philosophy
at that time) at the University of Wittenberg in Germany. Amo
taught Mathematics in Halle, Germany.**

**It appears that Daniel
Akyeampong and F.K.A.
Allotey were the first Ghanaian Ph.D.s in the mathematical
sciences. The Mathematical Physicist Allotey earned his doctorate
at Princeton Univerity in 1966. He returned to Ghana and became
force for integrating modern mathematics and sciences into the
Ghanaian educational system. It appears that Atu
M. Taylor was the third (1967) Ghanaian to earn the Ph.D.
in Mathematics.**

**Note Allotey is also President of the continent
wide Society of African Physicists and Mathematicians [SAPM].**

**Universities? Currently, we only have a
web page link to the Mathematics Department of the University
of Ghana**
