Institute for Innovations & Inventions with Mathematics and I.T. (IIIMIT)
The Institute for Innovation and Inventions with Mathematics and IT (IIIMIT) has been established in collaboration with the Mathematical Sciences Foundation (MSF). Its emphasis on an integrated research and education program that brings together academia, industry and society makes IIIMIT unique among mathematics institutes in India.
IIIMIT has been envisioned as an expansion of the decade-long activities of the MSF. MSF has created numerous high-value activities in training and research that have involved teachers, students, scientists, government and private institutions and other segments of society.
IIIMIT primarily focuses on the following activities:
- Applications of mathematics and information technology to real-world problems.
- Creation of a training and research platform for teachers and students.
- Involve and train – in innovation – people drawn from various sectors of academia and industry, including college teachers and undergraduate students.
At present, IIIMIT faculty members are carrying out research in the fields of geology, optimisation, dynamical systems, computational finance and mathematics education. IIIMIT conducts a teaching program Excel in Business
for students in Kashmir, and hosts a month-long summer internship program called Inviting All Young Minds (IAYM)
Two focus groups have been initiated:
- Computational Finance
- Mathematics Education
In future, we expect to create further focus groups in areas such as Cryptography, Signal Processing and Mathematical Biology.
