ACTIVITIES OF THE SOCIETY

 

The society has undertaken many activities devoted to developments in Graduate and Post Graduate Mathematics during the last ten years. A brief report is given below.

 

 

 

1. DEVELOPMENT OF LIBRARY:

 

A special library of journals, books and reprints of research papers devoted to ` Developments in graduate level Mathematics has been developed during the last 10 years by collecting the relevant material from famous libraries in Bangalore , Bombay and Pune. The 15 subject wise classified files of reprints have been growing year by year. Members can get the reprints of any papers of their choice from this library.

 

 

2. ORGANIZATION OF MONTHLY LECTURES:

 

Monthly lectures by Universities and Colleges teachers are regularly arranged at Aurangabad since 2000.Total 96 lectures have been arranged so far at S. B. Science College Aurangabad India . These lectures deal with the new developments in Mathematics regularly taught in colleges. This activity became the part of the “Continuing Education Programme” recommended by U. G. C. New Delhi .

 

 

3. ORGANIZATION OF SEMINAR COMPETITIONS:

 

This is an important popular activity for college students in Marathwada, initiated by Dr. S. R. Joshi, vice-President MMS by donating Rs. 26,000/-. Each participant has to speak half an hour on any aspect of Mathematics not in the syllabus or on any application of Mathematics to a subject of his choice. Preliminary regional competitions are held at Nanded, Aurangabad and Latur, the three districts of Maharashtra . The five cash prizes ,worth Rs.300, 200, 150, 100, 100 are distributed at each of these centres to first five participants. These fifteen prize winners reassemble once again for a final competition and five prizes worth Rs. 600, 500, 400, 300, 300 are given to them . These prizes are given in memory of late Dr. K. S. Bharuka, vice principal, J. E. S. College ,Jalna, by his intimates. A fixed deposit worth Rs. 54,000/- is kept by them with MMS, the interest on which meets the prize expenses. In this year 2009, these prizes have been enhanced by Mr. Nitin Bharuka, son of late Dr. K. S. Bharuka as follows.

For this enhancement an additional amount worth Rs. 6,150/- has been given by him to MMS.

 

 

4. ORGANIZATION OF ANNUAL CONFERENCE:

 

Since 1999, the activity of organization of an annual seminar/conference “On Developments in Graduate and Post Graduate Mathematics” cosponsored by Marathwada Mathematical Society at different colleges remain continued till date without fail in Maharashtra state. On an average100 participants participated in each conference and about 35 research papers and invited talks were presented. Since 2008, the society has provided the T. A. facility to some embers those who present a paper at the society's sponsored annual seminar / conference if they have not availed T. A. facility from any other source.

 

Past Ph.D.students & intimates of late Prof. N. E. Joshi, a renowned Mathematician from Nagpur University , instituted a special “Professor N. E. Joshi Memorial Lecture” by contributing Rs. 32,000/- to the Marathwada Mathematical Society, the interest on which is spent for the memorial lecture at each annual seminar / conference cosponsored by MMS.

 

.

5. PUBLICATION OF BULLETIN OF THE SOCIETY:

 

Bulletin of the Marathwada Mathematical Society is published since 2000 regularly. It started with an annual journal but soon became biannual. It is now published in June and December every year. Selected papers from monthly lectures, conferences, and other contributed papers, all recommended by a referee, are published in the Bulletin. The emphasis is on Developments in Graduate & Post Graduate Mathematics. The special issues of the Bulletin were dedicated to three renowned Mathematicians.

 

i) Prof. B. G. Pachpatte : Bull.Marathwada math.Soc. Vol 4, June 2003.

 

ii) Prof. S. D. Nigam : Bull.Marathwada math.Soc. Vol 5, No.1, Dec 2005.

 

iii) Prof. V. Lakshmikantham : Bull.Marathwada math.Soc. Vol 7, No.2, Dec 2006.

 

6. SPECIAL WORKSHOPS FOR TEACHERS:

 

Three special workshops on use of computers for solving problems from the text books were arranged by MMS in November 2004, and January 2007 at S. B. Science College and University Department of Mathematics Aurangabad respectively.They were financed by U. G. C.and the Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University.The teachers solved some problems on computer from each paper at the B. Sc. and M. Sc. level. Numerical solution of differential equations using computers was emphasized in the last third seminar at the University Department of Mathematics.

 

 

7. SPECIAL WORKSHOPS ON NET – SET:

 

A special workshop for the students appearing for the NET - SET examinations was conducted by MMS at S. B. Science College Aurangabad for 38 days in Summer 2006. Two participants passed the NET - SET examinations out of the 16 participants.
