We are a small group of mathematicians and are part of the School of Physical Sciences, JNU. In pure mathematics, our areas of interest are mainly Algebraic and Analytic Number Theory, Arithmetic Geometry, Elliptic Curves, Dynamical Systems, Probability theory on Lie Groups and Operator Algebras. And, in applied mathematics, our research interests are mainly in the areas of Operations Research, Queueing Theory, Reliability Theory, Fluid Dynamics and Heat and Mass Transfer.
IIT-Delhi and ISI-Delhi Centre are about 2kms from JNU. University of Delhi (south campus) is also not too far. We often have joint seminars. JNU Mathematics students are encouraged to attend courses at these neighbouring institutions.
We currently have a doctoral and a Masters programme programme in Mathematics. We are actively inviting faculty applications in all major branches of Mathematics. The official job advertisement can be found here. If interested you can also contact one of us by email.
