National Seminar on "Advances in Mathematical Sciences" to commemorate the 128th birth anniversary of Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar (22nd December, 1887 – 26th April, 1920), FRS, an Indian mathematician and autodidact who, with almost no formal training in pure mathematics, made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions (Wikipedia). The platform of this event is expected to be helpful in promoting and expanding the mathematical legacy of this mathematician brilliant beyond comparison who inspired many great mathematicians.

Biology and medicine, as also the social sciences, which were relatively less attached to advanced Mathematics till a few decades ago, are now benefiting immensely from new mathematical tools. In the last few years the world of finance has turned to higher mathematics for help. The platform of this event will also be used to discuss such timely issues.

Organizers: Assam Academy of Mathematics & Department of Mathematics, Gauhati University.
Venue: Department of Mathematics, Gauhati University, Guwahati-781014, Assam, India.
Date of the Event: 22nd December, 2015

About the City of Guwahati (Venue):
Guwahati is the gate-way to the North-East India. This rapidly developing city on the banks of the river Brahmaputra is the capital of Assam and the business hub of the North-East India. The venue is about ten kilometers from the Guwahati Railway Station, fifteen kilometers from Rupnath Brahma Inter-State Bus Terminal and 11.6 kilometers from Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport. The venue is also easily accessible from any part within the Guwahati city by bus, auto-rickshaw and taxi. There are several places to visit in and around Guwahati like Kamakhya Temple, Balaji Temple, Umananda, Kalakshetra, The State Zoo, Accoland, etc. More Information about best places to visit in and around Guwahati may be obtained by clicking here.

About Department of Mathematics, Gauhati University:
The Department of Mathematics was established in 1948 and started functioning from Cotton College premises. The department was shifted to its present site at Gopinath Bordoloi Nagar, Jalukbari, Guwahati­-781014, in the year 1955­-56. Prof. V.D. Thawani who was a wrangler of Cambridge University was invited to Head and build up the newly founded post graduate department of Mathematics and Statistics. The statistics department was bifurcated from Mathematics Department in mid-fifties and shifted temporarily to the Physics building in mid-sixties and finally accommodated at its present separate building. Due to relentless efforts and dedication on the part of a galaxy of teachers of the Department, the department grew into a centre of excellence for teaching and research in Mathematics.

About the Assam Academy of Mathematics
The Assam Academy of Mathematics was established in 1986. Since then it has been working for popularizing mathematics study and research through different activities that include various competitions, seminars, popular talks, etc. on regular intervals. The Academy is also publishing magazines, journals and other publications continuously. During these twenty nine years the Academy has become a very large family indeed, and the Academy has meanwhile established itself as an integral part of the academic sphere of the state offering valuable contributions for improvement of mathematics education in various directions.
