Message of the HOD

The Department of Mathematics was established in 1969 and has been contributing significantly to the mathematics education and research in this part of the country. The department has M.A./M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D programs. It was declared academically autonomous since 1996 with semester course credit system of examinations. It was awarded UGC COSIST program in 1992 and is funded by NBHM for its seminar Library. Presently it is under DST FIST program. The Department is known by its alumni, who are teaching in almost all reputed National Institutes like IISc, NISER, IISER, ISI, MATSCIENCE,  IIT’s Central Universities,, NIT’s  and other universities of the country. In fact, one of the alumnus Prof Gadadhar Mishra who worked in Indian Statistical Institute and Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore was awarded prestigious  Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize. Prof Arun K Pujari worked as Vice chancellor of Central University Rajasthan and Sambalpur University. The Department developed as a progressive place for doing Mathematics under the leadership of Prof. G. Das, and Prof. S. Pattanayak. The Department has organized refresher courses,  Olympiad camps, MTTS camp, ORIGAMY camps in the region. It has many distinguished visitors in the past. Many students have been awarded NET, GATE, NBHM and other National fellowships for pursuing their research. The present thrust areas of research in this Department are Number theory, Ordinary Differential Equations and Oscillation Theory, Geometric Functions Theory, Orthogonal Polynomials, Random Series of Functions, Dirac operators and Geometry of Hamiltonian systems. The Department is known for its academic discipline and student friendly study atmosphere in the Department.

Param Shavak Super Computer

The Department of Computer Science and Applications is proud to house the state-of-the-art Param Shavak Super Computer. This powerful computing system, equipped with two multicore CPUs, each boasting a minimum of 12 cores, offers a peak computing power ranging from 2 to 5 Tera-Flops, making it an invaluable asset for our academic and research endeavors. With 64 GB of RAM and 8 TB of storage, it accelerates data processing and storage capacity, facilitating advanced computational research. The addition of an NVIDIA GP 100 accelerator card further enhances its capabilities. The Param Shavak comes pre-loaded with parallel programming development tools and resource management utilities, simplifying the execution of complex simulations and computations. Our department takes pride in providing students, researchers, and faculty members with an indigenous HPC portal, CHReME, and an applications interface, Onama, offering easy access to a suite of HPC applications tailored to various scientific domains, from bioinformatics to computational fluid dynamics. What sets the Param Shavak apart are its userfriendly features, including pre-loaded parallel programming development tools, resource management utilities, and the convenience of the indigenous HPC portal. Moreover, the system comes pre-packaged with a suite of HPC applications catering to various domains such as bioinformatics, molecular dynamics, materials science, quantum chemistry, atmospheric modeling, and computational fluid dynamics, making it an indispensable tool for groundbreaking research and simulations across a multitude of scientific disciplines.

MOU Signed

The Department has signed two significant Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) to advance computer education and research. The first MOU, in 2015, involved a partnership with IIT Bombay and was funded by the National Mission on Education through ICT (NMEICT), Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. This initiative aimed to provide software training through spoken tutorials. The second MOU, established in 2017, was with the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Pune, and was funded by the Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan(RUSA), Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. This collaboration focused on installing and deploying "PARAM Shavak," a high-performance computing solution, enhancing the University's computing capabilities for advanced research and training to students, research scholars and faculties of the University .

CSR Fund Received

The Department received two significant CSR funds in 2022. The first sponsorship, amounting to Rs. 27,25,865, was provided by the CSR Department of JSW Bhushan Power & Steel Limited, Rengali, Sambalpur, with the aim of supporting the development of a new computer Training Centre. The second sponsorship, totaling Rs. 10,00,000, was generously contributed by UCO Bank's General Administrative Department, Zonal Office, Ainthapali Road, Sambalpur, with a specific focus on establishing a computer Training Centre tailored to the needs of SC/ST students. These funds signify a meaningful partnership between industry and academia, enhancing educational opportunities in computer science and applications for the benefit of students at Sambalpur University, with a particular emphasis on empowering underprivileged communities.
