The University of Hyderabad, a premier institution of postgraduate teaching and research in the country, was established by an Act of Parliament (Act No. 39 of 1974) on 2nd October, 1974 as a Central University, wholly financed by the University Grants Commission.

The “objects of the University” as envisaged in the Act are: “to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit and by the example of its corporate life, and, in particular, to make special provisions for integrated courses in humanities and science in the educational programmes of the University and to take appropriate measures for promoting inter-disciplinary studies and research in the University.”

The University’s scenic, and serene campus is spread over a vast stretch of land measuring about 2,000 acres, 20 kms from the city of Hyderabad on the old Hyderabad Bombay road. Amidst the picturesque environment of the campus, several buildings catering to the academic needs, support facilities and residential requirements of the campus community have been constructed over the years. The University also has a city campus ‘The Golden Threshold’ the residence of the late Sarojini Naidu which was bequeathed to the University by her daughter, the late Padmaja Naidu.

Founded by Quli Qutub Shah in 1591, this large metropolis is unique in its rich architectural glory and blend of diverse linguistic, religious and ethnic groups and is an ideal place indeed to locate a Central University. The weather for most part of the year is pleasant except for the months of April and May when the temperature is likely to go up to 40°C. The intellectual climate is vibrant. Hyderabad is home to nine major Universities and several research institutions, laboratories and libraries.


The School offers facilities for intensive training and research in the basic areas of Mathematics (including Applied Mathematics), Statistics, Operations Research, and Computer and Information Sciences. The School has two constituent departments, namely: 1) Department of Mathematics & Statistics 2) Department of Computer and Information Sciences Prof. T. Amaranath, Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics is the Dean of the School.

Department of Mathematics & Statistics
The Department aims to train people who are oriented towards research and teaching in advanced areas of Mathematics and Statistics. Special attention is given to foundational topics. The Department offers research facilities in the following areas: • Algebra, Analysis (Complex Analysis, Functional Analysis, Global Analysis), Algebraic Geometry, Topology, Algebraic Number Theory, Dynamical Systems. • • Fluid Mechanics. Statistical Inference, Outliers, Regression Diagnostics, Order Statistics, Reliability, Operations Research.

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. Random Variables and their Distributions – Binomial, Poisson, Geometric, Negative Binomial, Uniform, Normal, Exponential, Gamma, Beta. • Inference – Methods of Moments and ML Estimation, Test for Mean and Variance of the normal distribution, Contingency Tables, Simple Linear Regression. • Linear Programming Problem- Graphical Solution.

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.

Infrastructure facilities The Department has good computing facilities. There are four labs. A Statistics lab with 15 PCs and 2 UGC (SAP) labs with 25 Pentium –IV and another Lab with 10 Pentium IV. These labs have licensed versions of Mathematica, SPSS 17.0 and SYSTAT 12 The University Library has been recognized as a Regional Library by the National Board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM).
