## HOD's Message

People often wonder what relevance mathematicians serve today. In a modern world, math such as applied mathematics is not only relevant, it's crucial. Applied mathematics is the branches of mathematics that are involved in the study of the physical, biological, or sociological world. The idea of applied math is to create a group of methods that solve problems in science. Modern areas of applied math include mathematical physics, mathematical biology, control theory, aerospace engineering, and math finance. Not only does applied math solve problems, but it also discovers new problems or develops new engineering disciplines. Applied mathematicians require expertise in many areas of math and science, physical intuition, common sense, and collaboration. The common approach in applied math is to build a mathematical model of a phenomenon, solve the model, and develop recommendations for performance improvement.

While not necessarily an opposite of applied mathematics, pure mathematics is driven by abstract problems, rather than real world problems. Much of what's pursued by pure mathematicians can have their roots in concrete physical problems, but a deeper understanding of these phenomena brings about problems and technicalities. These abstract problems and technicalities are what pure mathematics attempts to solve, and these attempts have led to major discoveries for mankind, including the Universal Turing Machine.

Computational mathematics involves mathematical research in areas of science where computing plays a central and essential role, emphasizing algorithms, numerical methods, and symbolic methods.Computation in the research is prominent.

Department of Mathematics is a major department in the faculty of science that has interaction with almost all departments in this faculty. This department has been offering diverse programs since its beginning, for example it started Masterâ€™s program in year 2009 and at that time it was affiliated with university of the Punjab. Department of mathematics has the honor of producing excellent results in the examinations conducted by Punjab university. After words, M. Phil was started in year 2012 which is being executed very successfully. Besidesoffering these degree programs on regular basis, this department has been providing teaching activities to various other departments like computer science, Information Technology, commerce, Chemistry, Biology,Psychology, Statistics, Economics and Physics.
