Activities
1. Bhaskara Computer Lab, established under the FIST scheme of DST, Govt. of India was inaugurated on the Mathematics floor on May 10, 2017. A session on software "R" that is used in statistical computations was held on the same day. The lab will be used for instructional workshops on various computational softwares in the world of Mathematics.
Details of past and upcoming activities at the Bhaskara Lab can be found here.
2. Seminars:
We have regular seminars in Mathematics. Seminars range from elementary exposition on a topic (intended to undergraduate students) to research level topics.
