SCHOOL OF MATHEMATICS, STATISTICS AND COMPUTER SCIENCE


Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science together constitute a school with wide scope for interaction aiming at
excellence in fundamental research and applications.
The University of Madras is known for its nurturing the genius in Srinivasa Ramanujan, the great mathematical luminary
whose mathematics is engaging the attention of leading mathematicians even today for its profoundness and applications. The
University department of Mathematics was created in 1927. The Ramanujan Institute of Mathematics, founded by Dr.Rm.Alagappa
Chettiar came into existence in 1957. In 1967, with the assistance from UGC it become a Centre of Advanced Study in Mathematics
merging the two units. This centre is now known as the Ramanujan Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (RIASM). The
RIASM offers Masters, M.Phil. and . programmes.
An independent Department of Statistics started functioning in 1941 and became a full fledged department of study and
research from 1975 under the leadership of Prof.K.N.Venkataraman. The department offers Masters, M.Phil and Ph.D.
Programmes. The department also offeres M.Sc. Actuarial Science programme under UGC Innovative programme.
Study of Computer Science in the University began in 1984. An independent department was instituted in 1995. The
Department of Computer Science concentrates research in the areas of Parallel Algorithms, Architectures and Applications, Parallel
Computing, Computational Geometry and it too has a well equipped Computer Laboratory. The department currently offers Master
of Computer Applications and programmes.

All Faculty Members

Objectives :

To develop written, oral and visual presentation skills


To prepare students for Paper/Thesis/Dissertation writing practice in Mathematics

Course Outline :

Each student is assigned a topic for term paper and seminar. It is an individual work. During the
term, the student will meet periodically the faculty to discuss different stages of the term paper
preparation and seminar.

Preparation of Term Paper : Choosing a Topic in consultation with the Student Advisor Finding
sources of materials Gathering the relevant findings Outlining the Paper Writing the first
draft (manuscript) Converting into Compuscript (using Latex) and Editing the paper as advised
by the Advisor.

Exposure to collect research papers and to prepare documentation of results in a scientific


manner with proper citation principles will form integral part of the course.

Every student is expected to give at least 3 seminar talks during the course of study. Topics for
seminars will be approved by the faculty. Preparation of seminar talks in the form of
compuscripts (using mathematical software Latex) is compulsory and talks based on the Term
paper be delivered using blackboard/ OHP/ LCD.

Evaluation is based on the (i) Preparation of the compuscript (30%) (ii) Presentation style (30%)
(iii) Oral presentation (50%). Passing minimum 50% of (i), (ii) and (iii) put together.
