Department of Mathematics


The Department of Mathematics, one of the pioneering departments in JAC, was established in 1972. It has been offering under graduation since its inception and post graduation from 1981 onwards. In the year 2013, a parallel un-aided section was introduced, owing to the demand for the course.
There are 10 dedicated staff members in the department. Most of them have rich experience in Research. A few of them have published quite a good number of research papers in International / National Journals. The department has organized two UGC sponsored national level conferences in Mathematics and one International conference. We have also organized four State level seminars on current trends in Mathematics to provide a forum for exchange of new techniques in Mathematics, give innovative ideas and motivate the students to do research. Three UGC funded minor projects were undertaken by our faculty. Some of our faculty members presented research articles abroad.
The curriculum was reviewed and updated periodically with the recent trends in Mathematics. Some of the optional papers offered for UG course are Fuzzy sets and Fuzzy numbers, Combinatorics, Boolean Algebra and Lattices besides the computer oriented papers like programming in C and C++. PG students are given intensive coaching to appear for NET / SET Examination. Remedial coaching is given regularly for the academically weak students.
