Welcome to the Department of Mathematics

Welcome to the webpage of Department of Mathematics, Sardar Patel University. This department was established in the year 1958. We have a legacy of having distinguished mathematicians of national and international fame.

Our department is involved in all three aspects of a higher seat of learning namely, Teaching, Research and Extension, thereby we are linked with our people and our society. Holistic approach encompassing Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Applicable Mathematics is reflected in our curriculum as well as in our research efforts. There is a vital balance between Algebra, Geometry, Analysis, Computational Mathematics and Applications of Mathematics. Our syllabus as per UGC guidelines, compatible with UGC-CSIR NET, within the frame work of Choice Based Credit System (CBCS).

Specially designed courses provide opportunity to the students to get equipped with the skills of the interest. A course on Problems and Exercise in Mathematics is meant to train the students for their problem solving abilities an essential tool in research in mathematics; and also this course helps a student for clearing NET/SLET and other technical examinations. Another course on Mathematics Education is designed for the students willing to pursue a career in teaching of mathematics at school level. We have a provision for a course on seminar in mathematics, this is a course for students motivated for a research career.

This department is well recognized by peers. Our library is recognized as the NBHM Regional Library of Mathematics for Western Region. This is a national facility created by National Board for Higher Mathematics, Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India. At we are given UGC-SAP-DRS (Phase-II) by the UGC. We also receive BSR grants from the UGC. Our department has also received grants under DST-FIST.

We annually organize a week long Workshop on Problem Solving for the students of Gujarat. So far five such workshops are organized.

Our department is instrumental in many mathematical talent search tests conducted in Gujarat. This department is a centre for NBHM MA/M.Sc. Scholarship Test and Ph.D. Scholarship Test. Other extension activities include Sky gazing using telescope, preparation of Textbooks of college level and school level, working as resource persons in school teachers training programmes etc.
