The Department was established in 1978. The department is engaged in teaching Mathematics courses for B.Sc. Honours Mathematics and Mathematics papers for different honours and Programme courses.

The Department conducted its first National Conference on “Advances in Applied Mathematics and Statistics” (NCAAMS 2017) during 07-08 September, 2017. It was sponsored by (DST-Serb) and (DRDO). The two day event was attended by over 150 Research Scholars and delegates from renowned Academic Institutions of India and abroad providing students an opportunity to interact and gain insight into recent research by well known scholars in field of Mathematics and Statistics.

Society

The Department has an active Mathematics Society “Asymptote” that aims to encourage intellectually stimulating atmosphere and to create self motivated individuals by organising numerous events such as talks, seminars by eminent speakers and activities like Alumni meet, Mathematical quiz, Mathematical Rangoli, Mathematical tambola, poster Making, paper presentations and movie screening based on Mathematicians.

Publication

The Department also has an annual e-magazine. Each issue of our E-Magazine- ‘Anantya: Beyond Infinity’ is a milestone that marks our growth, unfolds our imaginations and gives life to our thoughts and aspirations. So far, the department has come out with 2 issues of this e-magazine. It is a combined effort of our Department Society- ‘Asymptote’, dedicated teachers and hardworking students.
