We are currently preparing additional information about the journal. Please check back soon.
The title of the journal reflects the modern historical evolution of mathematics. Orbita in Classical Latin originally meant: “the track left by a wheel or a way well-worn by one’s ancestors”, representing how Cicero saw the knowledge and philosophy endowed from the Hellenistic world and how we all begin learning mathematics. The Renaissance brought another meaning for the Latin word Orbita: “the path of a celestial body when it revolves around another body due to their mutual gravitational attraction”, as it is testified by Copernicus’ seminal manuscript: “De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium” and, obviously, by Kepler and Newton works on the laws of motion and gravitation. Finally, modern times added a new meaning to the Latin Orbita: “the sphere of influence”. Obviously, all sciences belong now to the Orbita Mathematicae.
The journal Orbita Mathematicae publishes original research articles of the highest level, both from the region and from the rest of the world, and aims to position itself among the most prestigious journals internationally. Thus the mathematical research of the highest level in Latin America and the Caribbean has a publishing option originating in the region and with high global impact.
A wide variety of areas are represented on the Editorial Board. The journal is run by a Managing Committee nominated by the Comisión Directiva of UMALCA and appointed by the General Assembly of UMALCA.

UMALCA is an association of mathematical societies of Latin America and the Caribbean. With a history as an informal union spanning over 25 years, it has recently been incorporated in Santa Fe, Argentina, as a nonprofit corporation.
UMALCA’s mission is to promote mathematics in the region, and in particular to highlight the mathematical research that is done here. In this context we have decided to create the research journal Orbita Mathematicae.
