DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICSUNIVERSITY OF JAMMU INTRODUCTION
The Department of Mathematics was started in 1966 with a Master’s Degree Programme in Mathematics. Initially, the faculty strength was 3 only but in 1968 another faculty member with Complex Analysis as specialization and doctorate from IIT, joined the department and initiated the research programme in Complex Analysis. Later, in seventies two more people with specializations in modern branches of Mathematics viz. Functional Analysis and Algebraic Topology, and with doctorates from US, joined the department and then the department pursued its research programme in three sub-areas of mathematics. Later in eighties people with specializations in Algebra, Geometry, Complex Analysis and Functional Analysis joined the department and thereby making the faculty strength 12.
Now the department has a strong faculty with their doctorates from US, IIT, AMU, University of Jammu, and TIFR(Mumbai). The department carries research in the areas of Algebra, Algebraic Topology, Algebraic Geometry, Complex Analysis, and Functional Analysis. The faculty members of the department have reasonably good research exposure and have their publications in the indexed national and international Journals of good impact factor, and participate in mathematical activities at international level by participating in international conferences/ workshops/ seminars and by establishing international collaborations with mathematicians from Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, US, and UK..
The department is quite active and is there on the international map of mathematics The publication track of each faculty member (at page …) speaks about the quality work carried out by them. In the field of teaching, the department has too established itself at national level as the department has produced 16 NET/JRF students. To create mathematical awareness in this part of the country and to give a necessary exposure to our researchers, in 1990 the Jammu Mathematical Society was formed. It organizes national and international conferences/seminars/ workshops in collaboration with other national and international Mathematical Societies. We have been organizing annual conferences of the Jammu math. Soc. regularly since its inception.
For college and school students of this region, the society organizes mathematical competitions and one day students conference annually.On the basis of academic excellence of the department, the National Board for Higher mathematics (Department of Atomic Energy, Govt. of India) gives Rs. 5 lac per anum as library grant particularly to purchase books and back volumes of research journals. This has led the department to have a very good departmental library.
Besides annual library grant, NBHM provides scholarships, fellowships and travel grants to the students, scholars and faculty members of the department. A Computer Laboratory with internet facility has been established out of the funds given by UGC. Besides the academic achievements, the department has an honour to give educational administrators to the University system like Vice-Chancellor, Controller of Examinations, Dean of the faculty, members of the University Council and Syndicate, Presidents of Academic Societies and members of National Societies. Thus the department has been marching ahead in the direction of academic excellence and is committed to keep its march on as the excellence is a direction, not a destination.
The departmental profile is prepared to present the salient facts and achievements of the department to develop an intimate familiarity with the department.
The main objective of the department is to provide the quality education in mathematics in this part of the country so as to bring the department at the international map of mathematics. Though we have been successful to some extent in achieving the excellence both in teaching and research but still we need to cover a long distance as there is no end to excellence.
The department aims to convert it into a Centre of Advanced Studies in Mathematics. A few steps have already been taken in this direction. For instance to cater to the needs of technology and hence industry the department has now floated a proposal to start a Master’s Degree Programme in Applied Mathematics. The department has also initiated a process of bringing out a high quality refereed Mathematics Journal with Editorial Board comprising eminent mathematicians both from India and abroad.
Preliminary deliberations in this direction have already been made. The department has also intiated the process of forming a separate faculty viz. Faculty of Mathematical Sciences which will include Mathematics, Statistics and Computer sciences. After introducing the Master’s Degree Programme in Applied Mathematics, the department will move to get itself converted into ‘The School Mathematics’ with some other programmes in it. Prof. S.D. Sharma Head of the Department
