PhD (Applied Mathematics)


The Department of Mathematics started its PhD programme in July 2013. A wide range of the following research areas are offered in which the enrolled students can pursue their PhD work:


  1. Numerical Analysis

  2. Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems

  3. Fourier Analysis

  4. Analysis, Function Spaces

  5. Integral Operators and weighted Norm Inequalities

  6. Graph Theory, Discrete Mathematics

  7. Finite Elements Methods

  8. Parallel Computations

  9. Statistical Approximation, Stochastic Processes

  10. Mathematical Biology, Non-linear Dynamical Systems

  11. Optimization, Swarm Intelligence


Admission to PhD is through a common entrance test held in all the SAARC countries followed by an interview.
