The Department of Mathematics, Veer Narmad
South Gujarat University Came into an existance as adjoint
department of Mathematics and Statistics during Forth Five Year
Plan ( 1969-1974 ). Initially the campus of the University was
not developed, the P. G. Centres were developed. The classes for
both M. Sc. Part-I and Part-II were started at the P. G. Centre,
the P.T. Science college, Surat. The Post-graduate Centre for
Mathematics, on the University Campus was established in 1978
adjoint department with Statistics and Prof. S. S. Sharma, from
statistics was leading the department. But, for all practical
purpos, apart from certain technicalities Prof. A. M. Vaidya was
looking after the matters concerning to mathematics section
since 1979. After Prof. Vaidya left in 1986, Dr. V. S. Joshi was
taking Charge of Mathematics side. The joint Department then was
separated and the Mathematics department came into existence in
1986 and Dr. V. S. Joshi was the First head, of the department
of Mathematics. In October 1987, Dr. N. L. Kalthia joined the
department of Mathematics as a Professor and Head and continued
as a Prof. Head until he was retired in June 1996. After
retirement of Prof. Kalthia, Prof. V. S. Joshi became head of
the department and he remain Head till he was passed away due to
some serious illness in the year 2000. After the death of Prof.
Joshi, Dr. P. H. Bhathawala was asked by the university to lead
the department till further notice. In the year 2001 Dr.
Bhathawala pramoted as Professor under carrear advancement
scheme and hence he was given permenant order to act as a Head
of the mathematics department from July 2001.
Prof. A. M. Vaidya was first to provide the
real Headership to mathematical developments in this university.
Prof. Joshi’s role was more or less caretaker. Prof. Kalthia has
initiated to start advance Computer courses like DCA and MCA
first time inVeer Narmad South Gujarat University and thus he
has Established Computer Centre at the university campus.
The department is regularly revising it
syllabus of M. Sc. course, after every three years. At present
it also runs M. Phil and Ph. D. research degree courses. The
major areas of research for which the expertise are available in
this department includes : Fluid dynamics, Magnetohydro
dynamics, Applications of differential equation and
Recently department has started new self
financed M. Sc. classes. Thus department remains active and
enthusiastic in rendering its academic services. The faculty
member are keen to invite to exchange their views with like
minded professionals and also actively participating
conferences, seminars, workshops etc. In all activities carried
out on Mathematics subject by Gujarat Ganit Mandal and other
societies. This department has always contributed positively and
