Programmes of study The Department offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. Programmes. The M.Sc. Programme is offered in three streams namely, Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics-Operations Research. This programme is spread over a period of four semesters. For each stream, there are separate core courses and electives. The Department offers Ph.D. programmes in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Operations Research. Admission to the Ph.D. Programme is open to both M.Phil. and M.Sc. Students. Students admitted to this programme are required to pass a few courses recommended by the Department in the first year and have to face a comprehensive viva at the end of the 1st year. Only those candidates who qualify in the viva are eligible to continue their registration in the Ph.D. programme of the Department. They are also expected to take part in the weekly Colloquium / Seminar of the School.
Entrance examination The entrance examinations for admission to various courses are aimed at assessing the candidate’s understanding of the concepts rather than capacity for memorization. Admission to M.Sc. (Maths/Applied Maths and Statistics-OR) is based on a written test followed by an interview. The written test consists of objective type questions only.
A majority of the questions for M.Sc. Mathematics/ Applied Mathematics will be on the following topics:
Sets, sequences, series, limits, continuity, differentiation, integration, graphs of functions, coordinate geometry of two and three dimensions, group theory, vector spaces, matrices, determinants, linear transformations, rank, nullity, eigen values, system of linear equations, elementary probability and logical reasoning. A majority of the questions for M.Sc. Statistics – OR will be on the following topics: • Sets, Sequences, Series, Limits, Continuity, Differentiation, Integration, Graphs of Functions, Vector Spaces, Matrices, Determinants, Linear Transformations. • • Elementary Probability - Events, Independent Events, Conditional Events, Bayes’ Theorem, Chebyshev’s Inequality.

The admission will be made separately for M.Sc. Mathematics (including Mathematics and Applied Mathematics) and M.Sc. Statistics-Operations Research. At the end of the first year, the students of M.Sc. Mathematics will be given the option to choose in either Mathematics or Applied Mathematics.
Change of option between Mathematics and Statistics-OR is not allowed. There will be separate entrance tests for programmes in Ph.D. Mathematics (including Applied Mathematics) and Statistics-Operations Research. Only those who qualify on the basis of their performance in the written examination will be called for interview. Those candidates who have a UGC-CSIR/NBHM fellowship need not appear for the written exam, but have to appear for the interview. These candidates will be given 45 marks out of 75 for the written exam. A majority of questions in the written test for admission to Ph.D. Programme (Mathematics, Applied Mathematics) will be at the level of M.Sc. in the areas: Real Analysis, Complex Analysis, Algebra, Linear Algebra, Topology, Functional Analysis, Ordinary and Partial differential equations, Calculus of Variations, Classical Mechanics, Numerical Analysis. For Ph.D. (Statistics-OR) the questions will be at the level of M.Sc. in the areas: Probability theory, Statistical Inference, Sampling techniques, Stochastic Processes, Linear Models, Design & Analysis of experiments, Multivariate analysis, Linear Programming. The questions need not only be of the objective type and may require writing out answers. Credit will be given more to the understanding of concepts rather than to mechanical proofs of the results. For a Ph.D. in OR, a person may appear for the admission test either in Applied Mathematics or Statistics-OR.
