About the Workshop

Workshop: Combinatorial Methods in Graph Theory

Combinatorial methods arise in many areas of mathematics, notably in algebra, probability theory, topology, and geometry. One of the oldest and most accessible parts of Combinatorics is graph theory, which also has numerous natural connections to other areas. Combinatorics is used frequently in computer science to obtain formulas and estimates in the analysis of algorithms. Combinatorial theory concerns itself with the problems of operations on or arrangements and selections from a finite or discrete set.  The workshop aims to provide a platform to the research scholars and faculty members to learn some combinatorial methods in graph theory. The workshop is intended for three days (July 14-16, 2022) with invited talks and tutorials.

    About Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham

    Amrita Vishwa Vidyappeetham (AMRITA), accredited with A Grade by NAAC, celebrates the first decade of service to the society and humanity. Under the inspiring and motivating leadership of the Divine Mother Mata Amritanandamayi Devi as chancellor, AMRITA is marching forward towards higher goals and accomplishments and scaling great heights of excellence. AMRITA was conferred the status of a University under “Section 3 of UGC Act 1956” by the Government of India in 2003. Amrita is spread over six campuses at Amritapuri, Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Chennai, Kochi and Mysore in three different states. Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham offers over 150 undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes in twenty disciplines including Engineering, Management and Medicine. It has a student population around seventeen thousand and a faculty strength of two thousand.

    Right from the inception research has been a very significant activity at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. The research activities at AMRITA are directed towards societal, humanitarian and community development and relief. Many centres of excellence have been started in cutting-edge areas with the support of major national laboratories, industry leaders and agencies. AMRITA is also a partner in the Indian government’s Ministry of Human Resource development’s National Mission for Education using Information and Communication Technology (ICT). AMRITA has also bagged or filed fifty major patents and inventions in the past few years. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in 2005 with various US universities, some of which are ranked among the best universities in the world and has active tie-ups and collaborations with over 75 universities in USA, Europe, Australia, Japan etc. All these have made AMRITA one of the most sought after university by top ranking students from all parts of the country and abroad. Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham was the youngest university to be awarded with an ‘A’ grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has the unique distinction of being the nation’s first of its kind – fully interactive, multi-disciplinary, multi-media, virtual campus without geographical limitations, linking all its campuses. 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 workshop 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.

    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 Ph.D 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, 2021.

    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 name “ANANTAM”, which organizes workshops, quiz programs and puzzle corners etc for student members. It also organizes intercollegiate competitions.
