CHENNAI: The Postgraduate and Research department of DG Vaishnav College organised an international conference on Mathematical and Stochastic Analysis as a part of their golden jubilee celebrations on Saturday.

The event was also a dedication to T Totadri Iyengar, the first principal and head of the department of Mathematics of the college. Speaking during the inaugural session of the three-day conference, principal Venkataramanan said, “The basic aim of this conference was to make the participants aware of the recent advances in stochastic analysis and its applications in various fields.”

P Haridas, secretary, DG Vaishnav College, R Govindarajan, head of the department of Mathematics, felicitated D Kannan from the University of Georgia and Ram N Mohapatra from the University of Central Florida, who were the the guests of honour at the event.

 “The works of ancient Indian Mathematicians had paved way for better future. Today, the need of the hour is of young minds and teachers who would help inspire children and bring them closer towards the subject and not away from it,” said D Kannan.

Ram N Mahopatra stressed the importance of teaching the history of Mathematics. “Instead of scaring the students with complex equations, I think it is important to tell them about the subject and its origin. We need to tell them about the great minds that made Mathematics what it is today,” he said.

 “We received 61 papers and 32 papers were shortlisted for the presentation. They were published both online and in print version of the reputed international journal titled Annals of pure and applied Mathematics,” said M Anbudurai, associate professor, department of Mathematics.
