An international conference on nonlinear analysis and its applications in mathematical sciences and other related fields kicked off at a local hotel to talk about theoretical as well as practical aspects of applications and to redress emerging issues in the field and find out their solutions. The conference is being held by University of Management and Technology’s Center for Mathematics and (CMAP).
A good number of internationally-known speakers, scholars and experts from around the world are attending the event, whichgained the attention of mathematicians, young researchers and students from public and private sector universities across the country. Dr. Muhammad Aslam, Rector UMT along with Abid HK Shirwani Director General UMT and Prof. Dr. Mohammad Showkat Rahim Chowdhury, Founding Director of Centre for Mathematics and its Applications (CMAP) inaugurated the conference. Among the international speakers who addressed the opening session included Prof. Dr. Michel Jambu, Professor Emeritus, University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, Prof. Dr. George Yuan, Tongji University, China, Prof. Dr. Alfonso Sorrentino, Dipartimento di Matematica e Fisica – Universita Roma TRE, Italy, Prof. Dr. Francesco Pappalardi, Dipartimento di Matematica e Fisica – Universita Roma TRE, Italy and others. Rector Dr. Muhammad Aslam welcomed the participants and said the conference was very important as it revolved around a theme that is applicable in many fields of life. He appreciated Higher Education Commission (HEC) for for offering its support in successful organization of the conference. Dr. Aslam, urged on the need to put mathematical applications into practice to deal with social, political, environmental and technological problems. He said that expertise in mathematics could be helpful for the students doing research in higher education. In his address, Mr. Abid HK Shirwani, Director General of the varsity said that one of the key reasons of the progress of the developed countries was research in mathematics and putting it into practice. He also cited the example of China that was a rising powerful economy of the world and said the secret of its progress was mathematical applications applied in modern technology.
