HEC has recently started a programme which is meant to facilitate PhD scholars to go abroad for a few months vis-a-vis their doctoral research. Make hey while the sun shines. Good luck. Qaiser Mushtaq.
If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.

Anyone interested in giving a seminar on a topic of her/his choice may please contact the seminar incharge Miss Ayesha Rafiq, PhD scholar.
Some centuries before, There was a time that logic and philosophy were considers as major subjects for any kind of intellectual student r human…,,even these subjects were IN the culture .
the most literal cultures of the ancient world…..greec, roman……iraniann…..gandhara etc…..still remembered as cultural wonders of the history ……..the main thing behind this, as I think , …due to their high level of logic and philosophy….
Islamic history and culture has big names in logic and philosophy, every muslim scientist
was great philosopher and logician as well……
if we take the history frm newton to Einstein, each single scientist holds the qualities of good philosopher and logician…..and they made the historical changes……
But unfortunately…….now a days……..majority of our students r very poor in these two subjects…….
In maths too…..students event dnt bother himself to read any single philosophical r logic book……
These types of students or researchers can travel on tracks…..but cannt mak any new track…….. matlbb wo kaam sy kaam tu nikaal lain gy…lkn kabi bhi koi NEW….ya worth full kaam nai kr paaty……..
Wen I see in qau maths faculity(running)…..only few seems to hold these qualities…qaiser sir…sir khalid saifullah……and perhaps asif sahib(plz don’t feel ……ye mairi raye hy…app ikhtelaaf kr sakty hain)
So wats ur comment????
PhD defense of Mr. Nasir Sohail,
Title: On amalgamation of partially ordered monoids
a student of Prof. Dr. Qaiser Mushtaq
will be held on Tuesday 22 Feb 2011 at 12:30 PM
at the Department of Mathematics
Please make it convenient to witness the event.
A university faculty member is supposed to be an intellectual. He/she needs to read serious books on various topics: mathematical and otherwise. Generally faculty members are from families lacking traditions necessary for a taste for knowledge and scholarship. They are concerned more about ‘bread and butter’.
@bread and butter………
i agree with this 100%……in our society, education is all abt bread and butter…..ya max sussti shohratt ….these people expecting r hoping, drops of water frm a bigg sea,,,,,,,,,,, how unlucky people r these……these people hav lost real happiness reall charm real inner feeling abt any thing…….they r reducing themselves to animals…….jissy sirff fikry ma’aash ,buchhyy paida karnnyy aur paalny k ilawa aur kuch nai soojhtaa….sympathetic

Pure mathematics is tomorrow’s applied mathematics. It’s a story from Maxwell’s equations to Marconi’s radio. It’s a story of the birth of matrices to their applications in the creation of the hydrogen bomb.
Algebra is not a branch of mathematics; it is an attitude or a pair of mathematical glasses through which one sees the wonderful world of mathematics.
“The mathematician does not study pure mathematics because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it and he delights in it because it is beautiful.” — Henri Poincare
“A mathematician, like a painter or poet, is a maker of patterns. If his patterns are more permanent than theirs, it is because they are made with ideas.” — G. H. Hardy
Pure mathematics is on the whole distinctly more useful than applied. For what is useful above all is technique, and mathematical technique is taught mainly through pure mathematics.
G. H. Hardy
From the intrinsic evidence of his creation, the Great Architect of the Universe now begins to appear as a pure mathematician.

Graham Higman FRS (19 January 1917 — 8 April 2008) was a leading British mathematician. He is known for his contributions to group theory.Higman was awarded the Senior Berwick Prize in 1962 and the De Morgan Medal of the London Mathematical Society in 1974. He was the founder of the Journal of Algebra and its editor from 1964 to 1984. (www.algebraforum.org.pk)
Determine all ordered pairs (m, n) of positive integers such that (n³ + 1) / (mn – 1) is an integer.
If you could prove that there was a prime between any consecutive squares you would be guaranteed mathematical fame. i.e. there exist p such that N² < p < (N+1)². note that u should not consider 0² to 1², of course.
There is no branch of mathematics, however abstract, which may not someday be applied to phenomena of the real world. — Nikolai Lobachevsky (1792-1856)
“Mathematics is one of the essential emanations of the human spirit, a thing to be valued in and for itself, like art or poetry”. Oswald Veblen (1880 – 1960)

mathematics is my favourite subjects
its a pleasure reading all these informative things. I really appreciate your mindset man, please tell me how can i contact you, because your articles are always informative and cool for learning, they always increase my knowledge
Algorithms that are used on the internet i-e as google search engine search engine etc are also from the algebra?
Words do an injustice in explaining how much we will miss Lt Col Dr Tariq. He will remain very alive in our memories and admiration.

Was just watching GEO TV for news here when saw a commercial add about The University of South Asia (the mockery is that they did not forget to abbreviate it as USA)! Friends, do you think Universities need advertisements of TV channels? To be frank, I found it ridicules! This is because we have allowed those, who have never attended a University themselves, to act as Rectors, VCs and Presidents (or whatsoever they would like to call themselves) of our (or maybe their) Universities.
Friends, if we will not rise our voices against this corporate education, promoted by these pseudo academics, it will not take much long to reach a point of no return. These Crocodiles want to make it an industry, where the aim would be to make money.

The Institute of Mathematics of the University of Tartu in collaboration with Estonian Doctoral School in Mathematics and Statistics will organize the workshop
“Algebra and its applications”
on April 26-28, 2013,
in Holiday Center of Piusa Valley (Piusa Ürgoru Puhkekeskus),
Väiko-Härmä village, Estonia.
This annual spring workshop has traditionally attracted mathematicians interested in various areas of algebra such as universal algebra, semigroup theory, group theory, lattice theory, category theory and linear algebra. Also, we always welcome talks on applications of algebra in other disciplines, such as computer science, topology, geometry etc.
The website of the workshop is at http://math.ut.ee/~vlaan/kaariku/ . The working language of the workshop is English.
All participants will be offered an opportunity to present a 25-minutes talk or a 50-minutes talk. Those who wish to give a talk are asked to send us the abstract prepared using the template file which can be found
on the website. For a presentation, it is possible to use a laptop
computer with a projector, or a whiteboard.
The workshop will take place at the Holiday Center of Piusa Valley (http://www.puhkemaja.ee/) in South-East Estonia, a region called Setomaa, in Väiko-Härmä village. This is about 100 km from Tartu. The event starts in Friday afternoon and ends at Sunday noon. The transportation between Tartu and the Holiday Center will be arranged by the organizers.
There is no participation fee for the workshop. The cost of accommodation (for 2 nights, including breakfast) is 38 euros. Unfortunately, it will not be very easy to arrange single accommodation, but if you have such a wish, please let us know in advance. The costs of PhD students of the doctoral school and their supervisors are covered by the doctoral school. It may happen that we are also able to cover the meals and accommodation of some other guests.
Please let us know if you wish to participate in the workshop by sending us by e-mail the registration form below, and also please feel free to inform your possibly interested colleagues or students about the workshop. The deadline for registration and sending an abstract is April 8. For further information please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Finally, let us draw your attention to the fact that on September 1-6, 2013, there will be a conference “Methods of Analysis and Algebra” in Tartu dedicated to centennial anniversary of Professor Gunnar Kangro, the most famous Estonian mathematician of his time. This conference will have an algebra section and we invite everybody to participate also in this event. The homepage is at http://kangro100.ut.ee/ .
Do you wish to give a talk? If yes, would you prefer a 25- or 50-minutes talk?
