Department of Mathematics



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 Computational techniques.

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 effectively.
