Department History
 

Punjabi University, Patiala was established in 1962 and Department of Mathematics was established in 1963. Altogether there were six post graduate Departments in the University and the Department of Mathematics was one of them. Department has produced several Mathematicians who are working in different government, semi government and private institutes/universities.

In the beginning, Department started M.Sc. and M.Phil courses in Mathematics. Presently, Department is running M.Sc.( Mathematics), M.Sc. (Applied Mathematics and Computing), B.Sc. (Mathematics and Computing) and B.Sc. (Hon's in Mathematics) courses. In addition the Department is actively engaged in research activities leading to Ph.D degree.

More than 120 students have obtained M.Phil degree and more than 21 research scholars have obtained Ph.D. degree from this Department.

With the changing scenario of the modern times, the Department has started several courses of applied nature such as Mathematical Methods, Mathematical Modeling, Operational Research, Advanced Numerical analysis, Meta-heuristic Techniques, Evolutionary Algorithms, Soft Computing etc. In addition modern pure mathematics subjects like Category Theory, with tremendous applications in Physics, Computers, AI and other areas have been introduced.

Department of Mathematics has always focused on teaching as well as on research. As a result more than 250 research papers have been published by the Department in the different journals of national and international repute.
