1. Report on International Seminar on the topic
“RECENT ADVANCEMENTS IN MATHEMATICS”
The Department of Mathematics organized one day International Seminar on the topic “RECENT ADVANCEMENTS IN MATHEMATICS” on 19.08.19. The meeting started with prayer at 9.30 a.m. in a traditional way and the kuthuvilakku was lit by the Chief Guests and the dignitaries. Dr.K. Ameenal Bibi, Head and Associate Professor of Mathematics welcomed the gathering and introduced the Chief Guest. Dr. P.N.Sudha, Principal of D.K.M. College, presided over the function and gave the presidential address. Dr. R. Amutha, Head and Assistant Professor of Mathematics, Thiruvalluvar University College of Arts and Science, Attupakkam, Arakkonam gave the Inaugural address.
The resource person for the first session was Dr. M.P.Kulandaivel, Ph.D., Department of Information Technology, Al Musanna College of Technology,South Al Batinah Region, Muscat . He addressed the students on “Relation between Graph Theory and Communication Networks”. He explained about the graph theoretical ideas which are used by various computer applications like Data mining and image segmentation. He also explained about the effectiveness and applicability of existing methods and algorithms.
The resource person for the second session was Dr. B.V. Senthil Kumar, Section of Mathematics, Nizwa College of Technology, Nizwa, Sultanate of Oman. He elaborately discussed about “Role of Functional Equations in Various Fields”. He inspired and motivated students to construct Functional equations for Different degrees. He also shared his Knowledge on applications of functional equations in the field of economics and multiple uses of some classical equations.
The resource person for the third session was Dr. M. Yamuna, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Mathematics, Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore. She addressed the gathering on “DNA Fragment assembly using Euler Graphs-A New Historical Approach”. She provoke interest to the students on Graph Theory. The students were highly motivated by attending the seminar. The Seminar brought the Teaching fraternity and Researchers in sharing their knowledge and experiences. This provided a platform for the researchers and students to develop into various research areas in Applied Mathematics.
Mrs. G. Vinu Priya, Assistant Professor of Mathematics proposed the vote of thanks. The Meeting came to an end with National Anthem.
2. Report on Guest Lecture Programme on the topic
“APPLICATION OF NANO TECHNOLOGY IN VARIOUS FIELDS”
The Department of Mathematics organized one day Guest day lecture programme on the topic “APPLICATION OF NANO TECHNOLOGY IN VARIOUS FIELDS” on 26.08.19. The meeting started with prayer at 11.00 a.m. and Dr. K. Ameenal Bibi, Head and Associate Professor of Mathematics welcomed the gathering and introduced the Chief Guest
Dr. S. Kanagesan, University of Malay, Malaysia with her warm and cordial words. The resource person Dr. S. Kanagesan elaborated on Nanotechnology, Applications of Nanotechnology, Quantum dots, Future of nanotechnology and the need of Nanotechnology in research. In his talk he explained the fundamental concepts in Nanoscience. One nanometer is a billionth of a meter, or 10-9 of a meter. Nanoscience and nanotechnology involve the ability to see and to control individual atoms and molecules. Today’s scientists and engineers are finding a wide variety of ways to deliberately make materials at the nanoscale to take advantage of their enhanced properties such as higher strength, lighter weight, increased control of light spectrum, and greater chemical reactivity than their larger-scale counterparts. Researchers at Oregon State University are developing nanoparticles that deliver three anti-cancer drugs to the lymp nodes. Researchers at IBS are developing a graphene based device to monitor the glucose level in people with diabetes. A study has shown that nanoparticles called “nanomimics” may be effective in blocking malaria parasites from spreading to new red blood cells. Nanofiber mesh containing zeolites have been shown to absorb toxins in the bloodstream. Researchers believe this nanofiber can be used in compact and inexpensive blood purification systems as an alternative to dialysis. Current advances in semiconductor electronics come through nanoelectronics state-of-the-art conventional transistor is now only about 100 nm in length. There was an interactive session between the speaker and the participants to clarify their doubts. The students were highly motivated by attending the seminar. The UG, PG students and Research scholars of Mathematics of about 250 in number from our college attended the seminar.
3. Report on Mathematics Association Meeting on the topic
“INTRODUCTION TO CHEMICAL INDICES”
The Department of Mathematics organized Mathematics Association Meeting on 23.09.19. The meeting started with Tamizh Thai Vazthu. Dr. K. Ameenal Bibi, Head and Associate Professor of Mathematics welcomed the gathering and introduced the Chief Guest
The Chief Guest Dr. E. Suresh, Mathematics Department, Post Doctoral Fellow, University of Haifa, Israel. He elaborated on the topic “Introduction to Chemical Indices”. He discussed about Mathematical modeling of chemical molecule using Graph theory which helps in finding the physical properties of the chemical compounds in relation with the geometric structure of the compounds. He also inspired the students by sharing his knowledge on application of Graph theory in various fields. He answered all the queries raised by the students and staff members.
Students gave very good feedback about this programme. Mrs. G. Vinu Priya, Assistant Professor of Mathematics proposed the vote of thanks. The Meeting came to an end with National Anthem.
