The Accademia dei Lincei (Lynx), founded in 1603, is the oldest academy dedicated to the study of humanities as well as physics, mathematics and the natural sciences in the world. Through the centuries, some of the most important scientists of their time have been among their members, including Galileo Galilei, Enrico Fermi and Vito Volterra.
After its merger with the Accademia Pontificia dei Nuovi Lincei, the academy began publishing in 1847 with the Atti dell'Accademia Pontificia dei Nuovi Lincei. In 1870 this society was divided into two separate academies, one of which published its transactions as Atti della Reale Accademia dei Lincei and under the name Atti della Reale Accademia dei Lincei, Transunti as of 1876. Continued in 1884 as Atti della Reale Accademia dei Lincei, Rendiconti and under the present name in 1990, the Rendiconti Lincei have been one of the best Italian journals ever since. Papers by the most outstanding Italian mathematicians such as Betti, Bianchi, Caccioppoli, Castelnuovo, Enriques, Levi-Civita, Picone, Tonelli, Volterra and, more recently, Andreotti, Fichera, De Giorgi, Segre, Severi and Stampacchia have been published.
The journal is dedicated to the publication of high-quality peer-reviewed surveys, research papers and preliminary announcements of important results from all fields of mathematics and its applications.
