Brief Overview
Department is responsible for courses in Mathematics. The standard of training is one of the highest among leading technical universities. Students of economics are taught the fundamentals necessary for their field.
The department has 6 doctors, associate professors and PhDs developing training courses, extramural and distance learning courses, handbooks for new specialties.
The Department trains Bachelors in Applied Mathematics in Technology-Intensive Industries and Masters in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. Great attention is paid to students’ scientific and mathematical creativity, the Department is a standing participant of the SUAI Annual Scientific Conference, winners of the Department’s Olympiad in mathematics represent the University at all-Russia level.
The department conducts intensive research in the field of nonlinear problems of mathematical physics, multi-phase non-linear waves using integrated models of fluid dynamics for simulation, participates in scientific events and is part of the Institute of Innovation and Basic Master Training.
The fields for postgraduate research are: Nonlinear problems in mathematical physics (A. O Smirnov, PhD, Prof.), Theoretical problems of quantum optics (A. Ya. Kazakov, PhD, Prof.), Mathematical modeling (Yu. A Pichugin, PhD).
Glimpse of History
The Department was established in 1941, and was headed by Prof. V. A. Krechmar, author of a widely used book of algebra problems. Throughout its history the Department was headed by prominent mathematicians: Prof. S. G. Mikhlin, expert in integral equations, Associate Prof. P. V Frumkin, a co-author of the Nobel laureate L. V Kantorovich, Prof. L. Y. Kulikov, later an Academician of RAS, Prof. E. V. Voronovskaya, expert in the theory of functionals , Associate Prof. T. A. Roset, an expert on integral transformations, Prof. M. A. Sall, Prof. A. Ya. Kazakov.
In the 1960s over 30 mathematicians of the Department determined its main research field - mathematical physics.
In the 1970s the development of computer technology demanded training in applied higher mathematics which resulted in the Department of Applied Mathematics.
Since 2003 the Department has been headed by A. O. Smirnov, PhD, Prof.
In 2014, the Department was added by experts in mechanics to become the Department of Higher Mathematics and Mechanics and won an RFBR grant.
At present the Department trains Bachelors in Applied Mathematics in Technology-Intensive Industries and Masters in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. Great attention is paid to students’ scientific and mathematical creativity, the Department is a standing participant of the SUAI Annual Scientific Conference, winners of the Department’s Olympiad in mathematics represent the University at all-Russia level.
