The University of Delhi had hosted a Mathematics competition, as a part of the Legacy of Srinivasa Ramanujan Conference, in December 2012 . The fourteen winning undergraduate students visited King’s College, London and Newton Institute in Cambridge, in cohesion with the award which allowed them a trip to the UK to visit eight Universities. They were hosted by the Department of Mathematics.
The students and their academics were given a tour of King College’s Strand campus, delivered by Max Wells, a first year undergraduate Mathematics student, accompanied by Dr Alexander Heinz, Deputy Head of International Programmes and Dr Alexander Pushnitski, a Reader in the Department of Mathematics.
The School of Natural & Mathematical Sciences, looking forward to working closely with Delhi University in the future, was delighted to welcome the students and academics.
More recently, the winning team also visited the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge, a national and international visitor research institute which runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematical sciences and attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.
The students from Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Ramjas College and St. Stephen’s were guided on the tour by Dr. Sachi Srivastava, Associate Prof. of Mathematics and Lt. Parminder Sehgal, Dy. Proctor. They met faculty and learnt of the various programmes at both the institutes.
