Conference Press Release

Published by:


An International Conference on the occasion of Silver Jubilee of the Indian Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ISIAM) was organized during 29th -31st January 2016 at Sharda University, Greater Noida the joint venture of Sharda University and ISIAM.  However Indian government agencies like NBHM, DST, INSA, DRDO, etc. and international agencies such as ICTP and CDC have provided financial assistance for this conference. Internationally reputed scientists, engineers and mathematicians namely, Prof. K.R. Sreenivasan (Ex-Director, ICTP, Trieste and now a senior functionary of New York University, USA), Prof. Leon O. Chua (University of Berkeley, renowned specialist of neural networks, chaos and non-linear circuits), Prof. Barbara Lee Keyfitz (Ohio State University, Former President ICIAM and Field Institute), Prof. Maria J. Esteban (CNRS, Paris and President ICIAM), Prof. Alistair Fitt (Vice Chancellor, Oxford Brooke University and Former Secretary ICIAM), Prof. R. Lozi (Nice, France, well known for Lozi Maps), Prof. Guenter Leugering (Vice President International Affairs Friedrich-Alexander University, Erlangen-Nurnberg, Germany), Prof. Maria Skopina (Euler Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Saint Petersburg State University, Russia), etc. have participated and delivered lectures in this Conference. This Conference provided an opportunity for young scientists and engineers to learn systematic developments of those areas of mathematics which are essential for proper understanding of challenging problems of the contemporary times. It was clearly reflected in the Keynote Address of Prof. K.R. Sreenivasan and Prof. L. Chua, two renowned engineers known for their work in application of Mathematics.

ISIAM was established in 1990 to promote the teaching and research of those areas of mathematics which have great potential to solve problems of science, engineering, medical and social sciences. In the last 25 years the Society has endeavored to achieve this goal. It has popularized this theme by organizing 12 international conferences in different institutions of India, publishing their proceedings with leading publisher like McMillan India, Longmann-Pitman Lecture Notes in Mathematics, Narosa, Kluwer Academic Publisher, Marcel Dekker, Taylor and Francis, American Institute of Physics, World Scientific Publisher, Springer. More than three dozen eminent scholars like Prof. I. Sloan (past President ICIAM), Prof. Peter Markovich (Newton Institute, Cambridge), Prof. Alain Arneodo (France), Prof. I.S. Duff (Director, Rutherford Laboratory of Numerical Analysis, London), Prof. M. Broakate (Technical University Munich, Germany) have delivered lectures in our earlier conferences. Very recently ISIAM has entered into an agreement with Springer to bring out a series on Industrial and applied Mathematics. Two books have already been published while several proposals of distinguished mathematicians of the world are under review by the Editorial Board.

The Conference was devoted to emerging themes of industrial and applied mathematics such as image processing with special focus on medical imaging, biometrics and tomography. It is not an exaggeration to say that these concepts have wide applications in oil industry, brain studies, seismology, and other branches of science and technology. A recent branch known as wavelet methods has been discussed by several experts attending this Conference. It is a refinement of Fourier analysis which is in practice since past 200 years.

Applications of Mathematical concepts to areas like National Security, Homeland Security & Law Enforcement, Enterprise and E Government Services, Personal Information & Business Transaction, Brain like computers were discussed in detail during three days. Attempt should be made to popularize these applications.

India is well known throughout the world for its contribution to the ancient mathematics and even it is generally recognized by the good work in modern pure mathematics, especially by the work of Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bombay and Central Universities. Several important conferences have been organized to promote and popularize the contribution of celebrated Indian mathematician, M.S. Ramanujan. It is well known that most of the educational institutions of higher learning in our country mainly focus on pure form of mathematics, definition, existence and uniqueness theorems, lemmas and corollaries. Generally problems are direct and well posed (solution exists which is unique and stable). In real world, most of the problems are not of this nature. Those problems which are not well posed and direct have been ignored for a long time. Illustration of mathematical problems with physical phenomenon or processes and interpretation of solutions and its visualization or formulation of physical phenomenon in appropriate mathematical concepts is not emphasized in the teaching of mathematics. The Society which is celebrating its 25 years of its existence was formed to provide training and research to solve the untouched problems which are quite challenging and related to many real world problems.

On the Silver Jubilee occasion of ISIAM, development of industrial and applied mathematics in India has been reviewed and the article based on it is published in the Souvenir of the conference. One can observe that India has produced brilliant applied mathematicians notably Nobel Laureate Subrahmanyam Chandrasekhar, Prof. Srinivasan S.R. Vardhan, Abel Prize winner and recipient of US National Medal of Science, Prof. C.R. Rao (recipient of US National Medal of Science), Prof. Thomas Kailath (recipient of US National Medal of Science) and Prof. K.R. Sreenivasan (a member of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, a fellow of the American Academy of Science and Arts and former Director ICTP- a very prestigious UNESCO organization). Currently there is a strong group of applied mathematics at IIT-Bombay led by Prof. A.K. Pani. The Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Centre of Applicable Mathematics, Bangalore and Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore is carrying substantial research work in industrial and applied mathematics. We are delighted to note that these three centers of industrial and applied mathematics were well represented in this Conference. In fact, ISIAM has honored during the Silver Jubilee celebration Prof. A.K. Pani, IIT-Bombay, Prof. G. Rangarajan, IISc Bangalore and Prof. G.D.V. Gowda, TIFR CAM Bangalore for their outstanding contribution in the field of industrial and applied mathematics.  On this occasion Dr. Zakir Husain Award established by the Duty Society of Aligarh Muslim University has been presented to Prof. A. Adimurthi, TIFR, CAM, Bangalore and Prof. Mushahid Husain, Vice Chancellor, M.J.P. Rohilkhand University, Bareilly.

On this occasion- Silver Jubilee celebration of ISIAM 2016, the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay organized a 5 days advanced level workshop on an emerging theme –Variational Inequality and Applications under national programme on Differential Equations: Theory Computation & Applications. Fifty brilliant research scholars & young faculty members from all over the country attended this workshop. Distinguished experts of this field from India & abroad delivered series of lectures between 24th and 28th of January, 2016.

It is not out of place to say few words about the institution hosting the Conference. The Sharda University was established in 2009 by untiring efforts of Mr. P.K. Gupta, Chancellor and Mr. Y.K. Gupta, Pro-Chancellor. Currently, Sharda University having highly qualified faculty members has students from more than 30 countries. It comprises of Schools of Basic Sciences & Research, Engineering and Technology, Medical Sciences and Research, Architecture and Planning, Art, Design and Media Studies, Law, Allied Health Science, Language and Culture, Nursing Science and Research. Its faculty members are publishing their research papers, books, monographs, conference proceedings with leading publishers of the world such as Springer, Taylor and Francis, American Institute of Physics, World Scientific Publisher, Elsevier, etc.

Although Sharda University is comparatively young Institution but determination of the Chancellor and Pro-Chancellor has made it possible to organize a conference of this magnitude and scale. Hon’ble Shri Rajnath Singh, Home Minister, Govt. of India who is Physicist by profession, very kindly squeezed time out of his extremely busy schedule and inaugurated Silver Jubilee Conference of ISIAM on 29th January 2016.
