      ICMTA 2020 Report

      The first edition of (ICMTA-2020) International Conference on Mathematical Techniques and Applications, a three day event, took place from 30-01-2020 to 01-02-2020. The conference was formally inaugurated by the lighting of the kuthuvilakku. The welcome address was given by Dr. A. Govindarajan, Professor, and Head, Department of Mathematics, the convener of the event. In his welcome address, he emphasized the importance of conduct of conference and how effectively researchers can be made use of this.  Dr. N. Sethuraman, Registrar, SRMIST delivered the Presidential address. He remarked about the achievements made by SRMIST in his speech. Professor K.S. Ganapathi Subramanian introduced the chief guest Dr. Vishnu Pant Misale, Scientist-H, Former Group Director NDE, ISRO(LPSCO), Bengaluru to the delegates. The chief guest shared his experience in various projects at ISRO and the way Mathematics influenced their success rate. The signed MOU between SRM IST Kattankulathur and the Bursa Uludig University of Turkey was exchanged. This was followed by the release of the conference proceedings. Vote of thanks was given by one of the co-coordinators Dr. N. Balaji. The event witnessed fourteen invited talks by eminent Mathematicians from across the globe and from our country.

      The first invited speaker of the day was Dr. Govindan Rangarajan Professor, IISC Bangalore, who spoke on Sparse vector autoregressive and network representations of high dimensional time series data. Ismail Naci CANGUL, Professor, Bursa Uludag University, Turkey, in his talk, proposed a newly defined graph invariant called omega invariant in terms of a given degree sequence to obtain some graph theoretical, topological and combinatorial applications of this new invariant on some counting problems. It was well appreciated by the audience.

      B. V. Senthil Kumar, Department of Information Technology, Nizwa College of Technology, Nizwa - 611, OMAN, discussed various forms of multiplicative inverse functional equations, their solutions, fundamental stabilities in several spaces and relevance’s in various fields.

      “Voronoi Diagram and Its Application in Meshing of the Domain of Interest for Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Simulation and Image Processing” was the topic chosen for the day by Debabrata Datta, Senior Scientist-H, Head, Radiological Physics & Advisory Division, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, CT& CRS Building, Anushaktinagar, Mumbai in the afternoon session. He introduced a generalization of Centroidal Voronoi Tessellation (CVT) known as Lp-Centroidal Voronoi Tessellation (Lp-CVT) and its real time applications in detail.

      This was followed by a lecture on Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Reactor Accident entitled “Development of Micro Numerical Based Soliton Solution of Tsunami Model to Understand Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Reactor Accident” delivered by Prof Rashmi Bhardwaj, Guru Gobind  Singh, Indraprastha University, New Delhi. The visual representation with aid of graphics of the nuclear reactor and its breakdown enthralled the audience and one could sense the importance of Mathematics involved in the day to day life.

      The second day started with one hour of paper presentations followed by invited talks. The first speaker for the day was Indranil Mukhopadhyay, Human Genetics Unit, Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, India who spoke  on critical community size with an application HIV disease dynamics. He said that they had developed a formulation of finding CCS using diffusion approximation but without any restriction on the variables in the system that defines the disease dynamics.

      Dr. Nanda Kumaran, Professor, IISC Bangalore, the second speaker of the day gave a talk titled “An Introduction to Homogenization and Optimal Control Problems in Complex Domains”. He could draw the attention of the entire audience by explaining various applications of the topic.

      “Impact of Information Induced Behavioral Change on Treatment as well as on Disease Dynamics” by Prashant K Srivastava from Department Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology Patna was the next invited talk for the day.

      The next session began with the TIFR,  Professor, Adimurthi’s lecture on “Balance laws with source term”. The final talk for the day was “Fuzzy logic in Gynecological Disease Diagnosis” by Professor Ashok Deshpande.  The video shown by the professor made a strong imprint of his talk in everyone’s mind. He developed a new application (APP) called ZN square D. This application could detect the gynecological problems and could specify the treatment based on the input data. Professor pointed that he would meet Prime Minister of India for promoting this App and he is very happy to dedicate this app to his mother nation INDIA.  

      The final day was kick-started with “Compartmental Epidemic Models and Study of Dengue Disease Transmission Dynamics”  by Ganga Ram Phaijoo, Department of Mathematics, School of Science Kathmandu University, Kavre, Dhulikhel, Nepal was the need of the hour in the awake of coronavirus.

      The second session began with Debanik Roy from the Division of Remote Handling and Robotics, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre and Homi Bhabha National Institute Department of Atomic Energy, Mumbai. He lectured on Grasp Synthesis and Real-Time Dynamics of Customized Compliant Robotic Grippers.

      Dr. S. Sundar, Professor, and Head of the Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology Madras gave a detailed talk on modeling pedestrian crowd dynamics. He gave a detailed explanation of how the crowd reacts when there is a single exit point and multiple exit point whenever there is a stampede. He gave examples of the stampede in Kumbha Mela, Thirupathi and Sabarimala and how these could be avoided by using this model. The entire crowd astonished after hearing his lecture.

      “A domain Decomposition Method for Solving Differential Equations and Its Applications in Engineering” by Manoj Kumar, Department of Mathematics, Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology, Allahabad was the fourth lecture.

      Santanu Koley from BITS Hyderabad delivered a lecture on the modeling of oyster wave energy, the last invited talk of the conference. The paper presentations took place in four venues and as parallel sessions after the invited talks on all the three days.

      The conference witnessed around 350 research papers that were selected for presentation after peer review. The paper presentations by the delegates took place in four parallel sessions organized on all the three days of the conference. The staff and postgraduate students of the Department showcased their research work in the form of poster presentation which was appreciated by the jury.

      The valedictory function began with the welcome address by Dr. N. Parvathi. Dr. B. Vennila introduced the Chief Guest Mr. Arokya Inian (Alumnus SRMEC-1991 Batch) Director, Eminent Systems and Services, Chennai. The dean of the Faculty of Science and Humanities graced at the occasion and also presented a paper. He was honoured by Professor Ashokdesh Pande.

      The chief guest of the function, Mr.Arokiya Inian, praised our Chancellor for his untried efforts to transform SRM engineering college to SRMIST. He also pointed all history behind him starting  from his career as a teacher in government polytechnic  to current position as MP. He made a request to the dignitaries on the dais to open a centre of excellence in Mathematics in his name. It was well taken by the dignitaries on the dais.   

      This was followed by the conference report delivered by Dr. V. Srinivasan which gave a glimpse of the entire event. The feedback given by the participants was a moral boost to the organizing committee. Three best papers presented in the form of poster and power point were awarded with prizes and medals.    The certificates were given to the participants by the professors of the department and the chief guest along with HOD. The coordinator of the conference Dr. Harekrushna Behera proposed the vote of thanks. A short audiovisual organized by Prof. Ashokdesh Pande given by the father of Mathematical “Fuzzy logic”, Lotfi A. Zadeh motivated all the participants for their future contribution to the field of Mathematics.  The curtains came down with the National Anthem and a photo session was arranged to add to our memories.
