|ABOUT IMI » OVERVIEW|
Mathematics and its applications permeate a significant amount of research
currently being carried out at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc).
Recognizing this, an "IISc Mathematics Initiative (IMI)" was setup to foster
To achieve these goals, a focus area of current interest to both mathematicians
and scientists/engineers is identified every year. During this period, experts
in the focus area (both from India and abroad) are invited to visit the Indian
Institute of Science. Post doctoral fellows are appointed in that area.
Workshops, conferences, compact courses and seminars are organized
to catalyze interdisciplinary collaborations. Scientists and engineers from
national laboratories and industry are encouraged to take part in these
activities. It is hoped that such activities would also help kick start
research in cutting edge areas of science and technology where mathematics
At present, 29 faculty members spread across 15 Departments of IISc
and 2 members from the TIFR-CAM centre are participating in the initiative.
IMI is housed in the Department of Mathematics which also serves as
