Department of Mathematics at IIT Palakkad is strongly committed to excellence in research and teaching. We envisage a period of fast growth leading to a strong and diverse Mathematics community at IIT Palakkad. The expertise of the faculties spread across pure and applied mathematics. The department offers a doctoral research program from 2017 for students who would like to pursue their career in mathematics. Current expertise of the faculty members include Algebraic Geometry, Commutative Algebra, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Differential Equations, Functional Analysis, Low-dimensional Topology, Mathematical Statistics, Probability, Information Theory, and Several Complex Variables. The department started an MSc program in 2020. The curriculum for this program is very well-thought-out and flexible, offering the students a wide-range of electives that will allow the student to specialise in an area of their choice. The department is a part of two interdisciplinary M.Tech programs (one in Computing and Mathematics and the other in Data Science) and also offers several core and elective courses for the B.Tech programs of the institute. The department is very keen on having researchers in every major field of mathematics and are proactive to ensure that this is achieved in the near future. In addition, the PhD students are actively involved as teaching assistants for both B.Tech as well as MSc courses. This will prepare them well for a future career in academia. The department is also involved in developing mathematical talent in school children and coordinates the MATH CIRCLES program to nurture and encourage school children.
