The department of Mathematics came into existence as a full-fledged department in 1993. Earlier, it was a part of the Physical Science Group since the inception of the Institute in 1986. The department has highly qualified faculty members with a wide variety of specializations with a mix of both Pure & Applied Mathematics. In addition to teaching, the faculty members are actively involved in research. Many faculty members of the department are regular reviewers of several journals of international repute and examined several Ph.D. theses of different Universities. The department is a member of NBHM, Department of Atomic Energy, Govt. of India, which provides new books and journals free of cost regularly. The department is running M.Sc. and Ph.D programmes successfully. Department has started Ph.D. programme since 2007. At present there are fifteen research scholars registered for Ph.D. degree under the supervision of faculty members of the department. Six students have been awarded Ph.D. degree so far. At present, there are Five Professors, Two Associate Professor and Five Assistant Professors.
Vision and Mission
Both undergraduate and graduate students with a wide range of abilities and needs are taught by our department. At all levels, we instruct students to learn the rigor and precision of mathematical reasoning. Through our introductory courses, we provide the setting for any student to become acquainted with the elementary tools of mathematics and the techniques to use them. We provide students from disciplines that require a strong background in mathematics the opportunity to acquire the mathematical knowledge and the reasoning skills necessary to make effective use of mathematics. Through a program that emphasizes the beauty and applicability of mathematics, we also provide the setting and support for students majoring in mathematics to develop a required understanding and appreciation of mathematics as a creative discipline.
At the graduate level the department teaches students seeking knowledge of advanced mathematics for either application to other areas or for its own sake. Students at the master's level acquire a solid understanding of mathematics and the ability to apply it effectively. Doctoral students acquire the experience necessary to do original research in mathematics, as well as the versatility to connect mathematics with other fields.
In research, we extend the frontier of mathematical knowledge by producing quality research with original results and by collaborating with other disciplines. Our research mission complements our teaching mission.
The Department of Mathematics is committed to serving the academic community and the public at large. At the national and international level, we serve the mathematical community by participating in its activities and by educating and supporting new mathematical scholars. We also serve the broader community by conducting workshops and training programmes from time to time to popularise mathematics in the state as well as in the country.
