Research work during the first three decades was carried out mainly in the areas of Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Special Functions, Differential Equations and Theory of Numbers and Mathematical Physics. In the next phase, beginning with the fifties, Analysis, Geometry and Dynamical Meteorology featured prominently. Since the early eighties research activity has greatly increased in the Department. Areas of current research include: Group Theory, Ring Theory, Number Theory, Topology, Functional Analysis, Differential Equations, Complex Analysis, Relativity and Cosmology, Numerical Analysis, Generalized Functions, Summability Theory, Operations Research, Mathematical Physics, Fluid Mechanics, Mathematical Hydrology, Magnato-hydrodynamics, Mathematical Biology, Differential Geometry, Dynamical Systems, Fuzzy Mathematics.
