The satellite network has facilitated leading experts from around the world to have live academic interaction from a single centre in India to students, academicians and researchers at other campuses across the country.
The conference will be held at the Coimbatore Campus of the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham which is located in a serene village on the foothills of Western Ghats at Amritanagar, Ettimadai which is 20km away from Coimbatore.
About Department of Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics was established in the year 1994. The department offers the five-year Integrated M.Sc in Mathematics and in Data Science, Two-year M.Sc in Mathematics, Applied Statistics and Data Analytics and PhD programme. Also, department offers various Mathematics courses for B.Tech, M.Tech and other Programmes. The Department has been vigorously engaged in both research and teaching. The department has at present 33 faculty members who are all involved in research activities in the areas like, Graph Theory, Linear Algebra, Lie Algebra, Coding Theory, Functional Analysis, Fractal Theory, Regression Analysis, Differential Equations, Numerical Methods, Fluid Mechanics, Cryptography and Bio-Statistics.
The department organized several international conferences and workshops during 2004, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2015, 2018, 2019.
Most of our faculty members, by virtue of their expertise, are invited by other institutions to deliver invited lectures / key-note addresses, to be resource persons for FDP or STTP and to chair technical sessions in conferences and seminars
To promote research activities, the department organizes weekly seminars where the faculty members deliver lectures on a topic of their choice. The constructive discussions held during such presentations make the faculty members to keep themselves updated of the latest developments. These seminars also enable the junior faculty members to develop their teaching skills. The department also invites experts from premier institutes to deliver lectures and to interact with faculty members to promote collaborative research.
To give a platform to the students to manifest their Mathematical talents and to kindle their Mathematical quest, the Department has a student forum by the name “ANANTAM”, which organizes workshops, quiz programs and puzzle corners etc for student members. It also organizes intercollegiate competitions.
