DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS

The Department of Mathematics has been functioning since 1974 effectively .It was started under the headship of Prof.N.Savitri who later become the Principal, V.O.Chidambaram College of Education,Tuticorin, and then served as the Principal and Correspondent of Rabiammal Ahmed Mythin Women’s College, Thiruvavur.

The department has the distinction of being the launching pad for a few of its members to distinguished services - Mrs.S.Porkodi as the member of U.G Board of studies and Dr.V.Baby Thilaga as the chair person of PG Board of Studies, Convenor, Distance Education, Madurai Kamaraj University. Mrs.E.Vellammal, Mrs.R.Nalinikumari and Mrs.V.Thilagavathy are some of the former members of the staff of this department.

Mathematics is being taught at the core and allied level to science students. Our department was upgraded as a PG department in 1985. The faculty strength went up with a appointment of Dr.N.Meenakumari,Dr.Latha Martin and then Mrs.C.Parameswari. After the retirement of Prof.N.Savitri and Mrs.R.Nalinikumari, Dr.K.Palani and Mrs.D.Radha entered into the service.

In 2007, the M.Phil programme was introduced as an unaided programme. Dr.V.Maheswari has joined the department as a Staff in the unaided stream, and appointed as a Self Financing Staff. Mrs.K.Bala Deepa Arasi, Mrs.R.Rajeswari and Miss.S.Suba Revathi joined as Management Staff from 2011 onwards.

Faculty Improvement:

The Staff members of the department have always believed that the teacher is an eternal learner and teaching and Research should go hand in hand. Inspired by this ideal, Dr.N.Meenakumari and Dr.V.Maheswari undertook part-time research and got their Doctorates in Mathematics. Dr.V.Baby Thilaga, Dr.Latha Martin and Dr.K.Palani have done their Ph.D under FDP. Mrs.D.Radha, Mrs.K.Bala Deepa Arasi and Mrs.R.Rajeswari are doing Ph.D.

Dr.N.Meenakumari and Dr.Latha Martin are recoganized as Research guides of Manonmaniam Sundaranar University in Mathematics. Nearly 40 Research articles were published by our faculty in various National and International level journals having Impact factors.

There were Minor Research Projects undertaken in this department. The On going projects are given below:

“Fuzzy Bi-ideals in Gamma Near-rings” ,Funded by UGC – SERO,Hyderabad
Principal Investigator : Dr.N.Meenakumari.

“Extended study of (G,d) Number of Graphs”, Funded by UGC – SERO, Hyderabad
Principal Investigator : Dr.K.Palani.

Fuzzy Soft Subalgebras of hyper k-algebra”, Funded by UGC – SERO, Hyderabad
Principal Investigator : Mrs.C.Parameswari.

"Extended Study of K-Edge D-Critical Graphs " , Funded by UGC – SERO, Hyderabad

Principal Investigator :Dr.Latha Martin

Some of our faculty acted as members in IQAC and in the Editorial Board of our Home Multidisciplinary Research Journal “ENRICH”.

The students of this department brought laurels by securing top ranks in University examinations. Notable among them were

1) M.Amutha - I Rank (Gold Medalist)
2) G.Rajeswari – I Rank (Gold Medalist)
3) D.Devi Sindhuja – I Rank (Gold Medalist)

ASSOCIATION ACTIVITIES (2016-2017)



Seminars organised by the Department :

Two Day State level Seminar sponsored by UGC was organized by this Department on the topic “Algebra, Analysis and their Applications” on 28.02.2006 and 01.03.2006. Proceedings of this seminar was published. One day U.G.C (COSIP) sponsored state level seminar on the topic “Recent Developments in Graph Theory” was held on 23.09.2005. Two day National Seminar on the topic “Recent Trends in Mathematics” was conducted on 12.10.2011 and 13.10.2011. One day National Seminar on the topic “Emerging Trends in Graph Theory and Fuzzy Mathematics” sponsored by the Management was conducted on 06.09.2013 in commemoration with Ruby Jubilee Celebration. As a part of popularizing science, 3 exhibitions one in 1993, another in 1998 (as a part of Silver Jubilee) and the 3rd one in 2010 (International year of Astronomy celebrations) were conducted. The response from the public and students were phenomenal. We marched towards the prospective future with a attainable goal of upgrading the department into Research centre.
