We give a brief survey of the development of mathematics in Vietnam since 1947, when the first mathematical research paper written by a Vietnamese mathematician was published in an international journal. We describe how mathematics in Vietnam developed under very special conditions: the anti-French resistance, the struggle for the reunification of the country, the American war, the economic crisis, and the change toward a market economy.
