ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Mathematics is one of the departments functioning from the inception of Periyar University. The Department offers programmes of study and research leading to M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees and is on a relentless march towards academic excellence. Based on the contributions towards research, University Grants Commission (UGC) has granted Special Assistance Programme (SAP) and Department of Science and Technology (DST) has granted Fund for Improvementof S&T infrastructure (FIST) to this department. The Department conducts various research activities in the following areas:
- Graph Theory
- Differential Equations
- Numerical Analysis
- Control Theory
- Mathematical Biology
The department produced 45 Ph.D’s and 150 M.Phil students. Further, 5 candidates cleared NET examinations, 4 candidates cleared GATE examinations and 26 candidates cleared SET examinations. Also the department has published more than 150 research papers both National/Internationally reputed journals with impact factors.
Apart from the above, the department has organized 20 workshops/conferences/seminars at National level by generating funds to the tune of Rs. 20 lakhs from the National funding agencies like NBHM, DST, CSIR, DRDO and generated Rs. 86 lakhs through projects/Non-SAP operated from National funding agencies.
Based on the above activities, UGC & DST recognized this department and sanctioned Rs.80.50 lakhs under Special Assistance Programme (SAP) and Rs. 1.01 Crores under Fund for Improvement of Science and Technology Infrastructure (FIST) respectively for further development of laboratory and library facilities.
The Department of Mathematics aspires to be globally recognized as a center for advanced study in Mathematics through teaching and research. The Department also aims to train people in advanced areas of Mathematics to the international standard.
- To provide strong background to conduct basic research in the thrust areas identified by the National Scientific Agencies.
- To provide opportunities for developing high quality mathematical skills for successful researcher/teacher.
- To conduct quality research on par with international standard
- To produce graduates with leadership quality for dedicated services to the society.
