The Department of Mathematics was established in 1960, It became known world over due to significant contributions of its eminent faculty members and their research scholars. The main impetus in this direction was given by the eminent Mathematician Late Prof. V. Lakshmikantham in his stay during 1964-66. Some of the researchers of this department have occupied high positions and respect in India and abroad due to their fundamental researches.
Dr. G. S. Ladde, Dr. S. Leela and Prof. S. G. Deo worked in Differential equations. Late Prof. B. G. Pachpatte, Ex-Head of this Department became world famous Mathematician through his significant contributions. Dr. V. K. Deshpande (Wisconsin) did fundamental work in Algebra, which was acknowledged world over through his long papers in ring theory. Prof. D. Y. Kasture worked in Appliied Mathematics and Late Prof. G. R. Shendge in Differential equations. Late Dr. K. Anjaneyulu (London) was the first faculty member with Ph. D. from abroad. Late Prof. B. R. Bhonsale worked on integral transforms and special functions. He became Vice-Chancellor of this University. Prof. N. K.
