About The Department
Unlike other institutes, Banasthali Vidyapith's Department of Mathematics and
Statistics is unique in nature for its interdisciplinary and PG Programs.
Presently the department is under the umbrella of Apaji Institute of Mathematics
and Applied Computer Technology (AIM & ACT) which was founded in 1991.The
objective of Apaji Institute is to achieve synergy among the teaching and
research in Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Electronics, Physics and
Bio  Informatics. One of the strong points of Apaji Institute is to infuse
logical abilities and abstract thinking in its students by integrating learning
of Mathematics in all its programs. The department offers B.Sc. (Mathematics),
M.Sc./M.Phil./Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences (Pure Mathematics, Statistics,
Operations Research and Theoretical Computer Science).
Other than conventional courses, department offers following certificate and
diploma courses:
·
Certificate Course in
‘Statistical Techniques and Applications’
·
Certificate Course in
Actuarial Sciences
·
Diploma in Actuarial
Sciences
The
department is vigorously perusing research program. The areas in which the
Faculty/Research Scholars are actively perusing research are
·
Pure Mathematics: Algebra, Functional
Analysis, Manifold Analysis
·
Discrete Mathematics: Graph Theory & its
Applications, Cryptography, Combinatorics, Communication Networks
·
Operations Research: Supply Chain &Inventory Models,
Queuing Theory, Networks
·

BioStatistics
Today's
Mathematics is not only limited in theoretical study but also it is fully
oriented with computational work. As per the need in the society our Department
has very good infrastructure supported by many software's. Some of them are
listed below:
·
MAT LAB
(2009b)
·
MATHMATICA
(8.0)
·
STATISTICA
(7.0)
·
SPSS (20.0)
·
MAPLE SOFT
(15.0)
In 2007, Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India awarded a
“Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS)” in Banasthali Vidyapith (which is one
of the four CMS in the country) for five years, and extended for one more year.
In addition to the usual seminars and inhouse research fourteen workshops and
training programmes were held under the aegis of CMS.

DST Centre for Mathematical Science (CMS):
To motivate research, Department of
Science and Technology, govt. of India has established Centre for Mathematical
Sciences (CMS) in November 2007 at Banasthali University under the leadership of
Prof. Aditya Shastri and with financial support from Department of Science &
Technology (DST), Govt. of India. The domain aim of the Centre is to create a
centre of excellence covering all aspects of Discrete Mathematics, Statistics,
Mathematical Modeling. Apart from carrying out fundamental research, other
objectives of the Centre are the followings:

To Assemble excellent researchers who will be
willing to take up any challenges in the country to successfully tackle them.

To Give consulting service on mathematical and statistical
aspects to Scientists in other institutions, and university and college
teachers.

To encourage excellent doctorates.
 To produce research publications, monographs etc. and
raise the standards of these to the international level.
Establishment of the Centre witnessed significant increase
in number of students in Post Graduate Programme of Mathematical Sciences along with
significant increase in the academic activities in department of Mathematics &
Statistics.
In addition to the usual seminars and inhouse research
following conferences workshops and training programmes were held under umbrella
of CMS.
