Complex Analysis has the potential to address many learning outcomes that are important in studying mathematics. The subject has connections to several other mathematical areas and it provides students with opportunities to build a deeper cognitive mathematical framework. Complex Analysis is the jumping off point for many areas of current research and popular interest. Topics such as fractals, complex dynamics, minimal surfaces, and harmonic functions are within easy reach. The syllabus of the workshop has been designed in a way so that the one third of the workshop will be devoted to foundational aspects of Complex analysis. A salient feature of the workshop is that the participants will be exposed to Introductory Complex Dynamics via Complex analysis. Complex dynamics is an active and exciting area of research. The seminal ideas and foundations of the subject Complex Dynamics originated with the French Mathematicians Pierre Fatou and Gaston Julia in 1918. After that, a number of interesting developments have taken place. In this workshop, we aim to acquaint the audience with some of the central ideas of Complex Dynamics.
Applications are invited from Lecturers in Mathematics who have passed NET/SET or equivalent examination and who are teaching at a college / university. Research Scholars working in complex analysis or complex dynamics are encouraged to apply for this program. Applicants below the age of 35 will be given preference.
Interested candidates are encouraged to apply online in the webpage, workshop.iittp.ac.in/math_cacd , along with recommendation letter from their supervisor or from the Head of the Institute. Last date to apply online is 20th October 2018.
List of selected candidates will be announced in the program webpage on 27th October 2018 .
Financial Support: The selected participants will be provided with accommodation and local hospitality. Also, train fare up to III AC will be reimbursed.

Indian Institute of Technology Tirupati, the eighteenth member of the IIT fraternity, was established by Ministry of Human Resource and Development in the year 2015. Presently, it is functioning from a temporary campus housed at Krishna Theja Educational Institutions in Chadalawada Nagar on the outskirts of the temple city. The permanent campus of IIT Tirupati is spreading over 530 acres of land in Merlapaka Village, Yerpedu with a scenic mountain backdrop. With IISER Tirupati permanent campus coming up in 3 Kms from the permanent campus of IIT Tirupati and other established Institutions like Sri Venkateswara University, Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences (SVIMS), Sri Padmavathi Mahila Visvavidyalayam, and Sanskrit University etc., located in Tirupati, The Government of Andhra Pradesh is building Tirupati as knowledge hub of the State. Also, the upcoming integrated business city “Sri City” and the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota being close by, gives it a technical edge.
The Department of Mathematics, being a seminal Department of IIT Tirupati, offers various courses to strengthen the analytical faculty of the budding engineers and researchers. Currently, the department has seven full time faculty members. The major areas of research include Fractals, Fixed Point Theory, Inverse Problems, Partial Differential Equations, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Numerical Analysis, Number Theory, Probability and Statistics.
IIT Tirupati Temporary campus is situated in Chadalawada Nagar, Tirupati - Renigunta Road, Tirupati, which is about 4 Kms from Renigunta railway junction. Renigunta railway junction is a major railway junction which is well connected from any part of India.
