The Department of Mathematics was established in 2009 to investigate interdisciplinary research and export high quality education in emerging area of mathematical science. Faculty members of the department are active in several research areas, such as : Algebra, Fluid Dynamics, Functional analysis, Operator theory, Matrix Analysis, Low-dimensional Topology, Mathematical finance, Numerical Solution of Financial Option Pricing Equations, Mathematical modelling of traffic flow, Cellular Automata , Mathematical modeling on water waves phenomenon, integral equation, Nonlinear Dynamics, Mathematical Biology, Theoretical Ecology , Number Theory, Special values of L-functions, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations.
The department offers PhD program since 2010 and started M Sc program from 2015. The department offers core and elective courses in mathematics across various B.Tech streams. The department attracts students and faculty members from others institutes for short-term research project through summer-internship program. The department is also looking post-doctoral fellows for their independent research at IIT Ropar.
