The Mathematics Society is devoted to pursuing activities aimed at fostering interest in and creative expression of mathematical ideas, both in college and outside it. We believe that mathematics education is limitless, and should therefore extend beyond the classroom.
In light of this, we are pleased to present the National Workshop on Group Theory and Its Applications.
The Workshop would see an audience from all over the country, comprising of undergraduates and postgraduates. It is an event that will be held on a grand scale, over a period of two days: 28-29 March, 2016. This workshop will seek to bring together four researchers from across India with diverse interests that fit into the broad framework of group theory to conduct sessions for the participating students. The classes will be aimed at undergraduate and post graduate students, and will be devoted to some of the motivating ideas and key examples in the area.
The main aim of this workshop is to systematically expose various areas of Group Theory and their applications to the students . The selected participants will have common research interest but with diversified backgrounds and knowledge, thereby bringing in a wider range of expertise. Our speakers are:
1. Dr. JK Verma (IIT Bombay)
2. Dr. Amritanshu Prasad (IMSc., Chennai)
3. Prof. B Sury (ISI, Bengaluru)
4. Prof. Geetha Venkataraman (Ambedkar University Delhi)
The prime objective of the workshop is to introduce the basic concepts of the group theory and explore the importance, difficulties and challenges of this innovative research field. Attached is the Schedule for the Workshop, as well as the abstracts for the talks.
