The Department organizes various activities including seminars, schools, workshops, and conferences, from time-to-time, to promote research interactions between the Institute and other researchers in the country as well as abroad. Some of the activities organized by the Department are:

Science Academies' Refresher Course on Partial Differential Equations and their Applications (PDEA-2017) (July 03 - July 15, 2017)

Differential Equations is a basic topic of research and teaching in mathematics. The abstract theory behind this topic is also most important from the point of view of applications in a large number of areas of mathematics itself and, of course, in science and engineering. A few examples are geometry (including differential geometry), economics, hydrodynamics, elasticity, general relativity, geometric flows, biology etc. There are a few excellent research groups in India, especially in partial differential equations (PDE), but these are located in a very small number of central institutes and the manpower available for teaching this topic in universities, and colleges are too small. The purpose of this course was to provide an excellent opportunity to young teachers and researchers from various educational institutions of the country to interact and learn important topics on PDEs and its applications from some of the experts of this subject.

Conference on Modular Forms (September 4, 2016)

A lecture series on modular forms was delivered by Prof. M. Ram Murty as part of the GIAN programme. As a follow up of this lecture series, we organized a one day conference on modular forms on September 04, 2016. The purpose of this conference was to bring together active researchers in the area of modular forms for interaction and collaboration and to motivate young students and postdoctoral fellows towards the ongoing research in the area.

Invited speakers of the conference:
  • M. Ram Murty, Queen's University
  • M. Manickam, Kerala School of Mathematics
  • B. Ramakrishnan, Harish-Chandra Research Institute
  • Purusottam Rath, Chennai Mathematical Institute
  • Sanoli Gun, The Institute of Mathematical Sciences
Graduate student speakers:
  • Abhas Kumar Jha, NISER Bhubaneswar
  • Gunja Sachdeva, IISER Pune
  • Sudhir Pujahari, HRI Allahabad
A short course on Modular Forms (GIAN) Programme (August 24, 2016 - September 03, 2016)

Under MHRD's Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) funding scheme, the department organized a short course on modular forms during August 24- September 4, 2016. The goal of this course was to introduce the student, in a span of two weeks, to the rudimentary theory of modular forms. Lectures were given by Prof. Ram Murty, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Queen's University, Canada. The course was attended by students from IISER Bhopal as well as several other institutions in India and it provided an opportunity for students as well as faculty members to interact with Prof. Murty, who is an expert in the area of modular forms.

Topology and Dynamics Conference (December 3-5, 2015)

This conference had two primary goals: bringing together active researchers in these are as in order to create an atmosphere conducive for interaction and collaboration, and motivating young researchers towards pursuing research in these areas. The conference was partially supported by SERB (DST).

S. G. Dani (IIT Bombay), Parameswaran Sankaran (IMSc Chennai), C. S. Aravinda (TIFR CAM Bangalore), Mahan Mj (TIFR Mumbai), Siddhartha Gadgil (IISc Bangalore), Riddhi Shah (JNU Delhi), Tarun Das (University of Delhi) were the plenary speakers.

Winter School in Mathematics (December 8-18, 2014)

The school was targeted at final year Masters students and aimed to provide exposure to topics which are different, yet related to those taught at the Masters level. The topics covered during the school were:

  • Finite Groups of Möbius Transformations (Instructors: Kashyap Rajeevsarathy and Siddhartha Sarkar)
  • Galois Theory of Cyclotomic Extensions (Instructors: Prahlad Vaidyanathan and Romie Banerjee)
  • Canonical Forms of Linear Operators and Differential Equations (Instructors: Anand Mangasuli and Nikita Agarwal)
Conference on Harmonic Analysis and Operator Theory (Mar 21-23, 2014)

The goal of the conference was to invite eminent mathematicians in both areas and provide a platform for interaction and collaboration. The conference was funded by National Board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM). The organizing committee included Prahlad Vaidyanathan, Saurabh Shrivastava, and Nikita Agarwal.

Shobha Madan (IIT Kanpur), Gadadhar Misra (IISc Bangalore), V S Sunder (IMSc, Chennai), S Thangavelu (IISc Bangalore) were the invited speakers. Many researchers and Ph.D. students from other research institutions also attended the program.

Current Trends in Algebra (Aug 30-31, 2013)

The aim of the conference was to bring renowned mathematicians working in the areas related to Representation Theory. The organizing committee included Siddhartha Sarkar, Krishna Kaipa, Kumar Balasubramanian, and Ashish Gupta.

Dipendra Prasad (TIFR, Mumbai), C.S. Dalawat (HRI Allahabad), Amritanshu Prasad (IMSc Chennai), A. Raghuram (IISER Pune), Sandeep Varma (TIFR Mumbai) were the invited speakers. Senior Ph.D. students from other research institutions also attended the program. There were invited talks and also talks by the faculty members at IISER Bhopal working in related areas.
