The Department of Mathematics, Indian
Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati is organizing a
Quality Improvement Programme Online ShortTerm Course (QIPSTC)
on Differential Equations: Solution
Techniques and Applications
at IIT Guwahati
during September 07  12, 2020.
IIT
Guwahati
Indian Institute of
Technology Guwahati, the sixth member of the IIT fraternity, was established in
1994. The academic programme of IIT Guwahati commenced in 1995. At present the
Institute has eleven departments and five interdisciplinary academic centres
covering all the major engineering, science and humanities disciplines, offering
BTech, BDes, MA, MDes, MTech, MSc and PhD programmes. Within a short period of
time, IIT Guwahati has been able to build up world class infrastructure for
carrying out advanced research and has been equipped with stateoftheart
scientific and engineering instruments.
Department of Mathematics
The
Department of Mathematics at IIT Guwahati, since its very inception in 1995, has
strived to be a centre of excellence in mathematics and computing, and it has
been vigorously engaged in research, teaching and training. Having started the
PhD programme in 1996, the department initiated a 2year M.Sc. programme in
Mathematics and Computing in 2000. From academic year 20062007, the department
started a unique 4year B.Tech. programme in Mathematics and Computing  the
first of its kind in the country. An interdisciplinary M.Tech. Programme in Data
Science jointly offered by three Departments, namely, Mathematics, Computer
Science & Engineering and Electronics & Electrical Engineering has been started
in 2019.
Background
Differential Equations (DEs) arise in various branches of
applied mathematics, science and engineering. To teachers
and professional engineers it is worthwhile to understand
the basics of DEs. In general, it is difficult to solve DEs
in analytical form; and one has to know the qualitative
properties of the solutions. In this situation, one seeks an
approximate solution, which may be through asymptotic or
numerical methods. With the help of modern computers one can
solve various DEs modeled from real life problems. The
shortterm course plans to provide the fundamentals and
recent developments in this area.
Course
Objectives

To
provide fundamentals of ordinary and partial
differential equations, existence, uniqueness, maximum
principle, Techniques to obtain Analytical solution.

To
make aware of various numerical techniques to solve ODEs/PDEs

Stability analysis and error estimates of the numerical
schemes

To
introduce different mathematical software like MATLAB,
SCILAB, etc.

Applications of DEs in other branches of Science and
Engineering
