SCHOOL OF PHYSICAL SCIENCES

Department of PG Studies and Research in Mathematics


The department was started as P.G. Centre of University of Mysore, in B.R. project in 1975. It was housed in a primary school building till 1996 and later was shifted to the main campus. After the information of new University in 1987, this department became an integral part of Kuvempu University named after the great Kannada poet, winner of Janna Peetha Awardee Kuppalli Venkatappa Puttappa (Kuvempu). The department of Mathematics has been harnessing precious human resources for overall department of society through the pursuit for the excellence in the area of Mathematical sciences. The development has produced 30 Ph.D., and 23 M.Phil., degrees and wore than 350 research papers have been published in reputed national and international journals. At present the number of research scholars registered for Ph.D., programme is 28. As a part of the university institute interaction the department staff and students get trained in research originations like TIFR, IISC, IIT etc., conducts seminars symposia workshops and conferences to provide platform for scientists and industrialists to discuss for mutual benefit. The department established mathematical society in 2008. Under the banner of society the following programs are conducted:

  • Helping the students in getting the placements.
  • Providing facility for research activities.
  • Funding economically weaker and meritorious students to purchase the books and reading materials.
 

The department has introduced an unique programme entitled earn and learn scheme for M.Phil., and Ph.D., students. In this scheme some of the students are working at Badravathi and Shimoga colleges on an hourly basis along with their regular academic activities. The credit of first Ph.D., of Kuvempu University goes to Mathematics department.

The department is actively engaged in research in the areas of differential geometry, fluid mechanics & certain areas related to simulation of fluid flow using computer graphics. We train our students to fulfill the current needs of software companies. The main objective is to prepare the students with good skills, which are essential for software companies. The project works guided by our teachers are published in reputed journals. The students are also deputed to various seminars/conferences.

The credit of award of first Ph.D., of Kuvempu University goes to mathematics department. The department has organized refresher courses (1997-98) and many conferences/seminars in mathematics of national/international level.
