Description: Časopis pro pěstování matematiky a fysiky (Journal for Cultivation of Mathematics and Physics) published by the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists was the very first mathematical journal in the lands of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The journal presented original papers in mathematics and physics as well as information on recent research progress and on events in national and foreign scientific life. Starting in 1872 the journal continued till 1950 ecxept of the forced interruption during the occupation of Czechoslovakia in World War II. Since 1882 the journal contained a special supplement for high-school students. In 1951, the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences took over the journal and split it into two journals, Časopis pro pěstování matematiky (Journal for Cultivation of Mathematics) and Československý časopis pro fyziku (Czechoslovak Journal for Physics).
