Concluded Events

Invited talk 27/01/2017 To 27/01/2017

Department of Mathematics, MNIT Jaipur organized two sessions of invited talks on January 27, 2017. This event was coordinated by Dr. Rashmi Jain and Dr. Ritu Agarwal. The lectures were delivered by the renowned mathematicians Professor Ravi Sripad Kulkarni, currently working as Distinguished professor, Bhaskaracharya Institute of Mathematics, Pune and Professor emeritus in Queens college and graduate center, New York and Professor Mahmood Ali Pathan, Ex-chairman and professor, Department of Mathematics, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh.
Prof. M.A. Pathan to delivered the talk on "Number theory to Lie algebra" and introduced the students the about this journey. He explored a connection between number theory, combinatorics, differential equations, special functions, differentiable manifolds, Lie groups and Lie algebra. Starting from Ramanujan's first paper on Bernoulli numbers he explained how Ramanujan's mathematics contributed to the advancement of interdisciplinary theoretical and experimental research.
Professor Ravi Sripad Kulkarni talked about "Ordinary differential equations, a dynamical viewpoint". It was interesting to know, how the matrix is related to ordinary differential equations. He gave a modern view of how Poincare transformed the study of ODE into actions of the real line on differentiable manifolds. ODE "amounts to" a differential action of the additive group of real numbers on a differential manifold. This was a profound viewpoint which Poincare enunciated in his papers in early 1880s.
The students and faculty members of MNIT Jaipur participated in the event. This was a great learning experience to know about another form of geometry of importance. The students get to know about unsolved problems and research opportunities available in this field.
