Department of Mathematics, S.P. College, Pune, and Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, T.I.F.R., Mumbai are jointly organizing a MADHAVA MATHEMATICS COMPETITION. This mathematic completion is for Undergraduate Students. This will be hosted on the 7th February 2021 from 12:00 Noon to 1:30 P.M.

The competition is named after Madhava, who introduced in the fourteenth century, profound mathematical ideas that are now part of Calculus. His most famous achievements include the Madhava - Leibnitz series for π, the Madhava - Newton power series for sine and cosine functions, and a numerical value of π that is accurate to eleven decimal places. The "Madhava School", consisting of a long chain of teachers - students continuity, flourished for well over two centuries, making significant contributions to Mathematics and Astronomy.



The following topics will be covered in this competition,

  • Calculus of one variable (sequences, series, continuity, differentiation, etc.),
  • Elementary algebra (polynomials, complex numbers, and integers),
  • Elementary combinatorics,
  • General puzzle type/ mixed-type problems.
