Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science
The courses of mathematics were introduced in the Deptt. of Physical Sciences in the year 1960 along with the establishment of the university. The department was established in the year 1968 by the name Deptt. of Mathematics and Statistics which was latter renamed as Deptt. of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science in the year 1998. Earlier basic thrust of the department was to teach various undergraduate/ postgraduate programmes of the university. Department introduced computer usage in the university with acquisition of TDC-12 in 1973. Presently department offers M.Sc. (Maths), M.Sc. (Agricultural/Statistics) and Ph.D. (Maths) programmes. The research thrust areas are fluid mechanics, functional analysis, reliability theory, approximation theory, pattern recognition, Artificial Intelligence, Neural Network, applied statistics and sampling theory. The Department is rigorously pursuing the development of Mathematical and Statistical models for predication of agricultural production, disease surveillance and financial stock analysis. Computer-Assisted Teaching method is being followed in the Department. 6 Professors, 1 Associate Professors, and 2 Assistant Professors at present serve the Department.
Department has about 200 computer programmes in FORTRAN for Mathematical and Statistical modeling. 16 VT-220 terminals are connected with LINUX based Super Server . One Pentium server and 15 PCs are connected on LAN for PG students and 10-Desktop PCs are for UG students
Besides the University Central Library, Department has its own library consisting of about 200 books of Mathematics, Statistics & Computer Science.
