Children’s dayChildren’s Day celebrations were held at Nirukonda and Nauluru government schools from Friday to Monday under the auspices of the Student Affairs department at SRM University-AP. The programme named SRM Sunshine, organised various games and competitions for students from classes one to ten and distributed prizes to winners. The essay writing, drawing, running, skipping and musical chair competitions focused on children and their enjoyment contributing to their cognitive development.

Students of SRM University-AP mingled with the children involving them in various games. The tiny tots of Preschool and Pre-primary celebrated the day with much joy and enthusiasm. The celebrations began on Friday, followed by a variety of fun-filled activities and games planned by the Sunshine team. Children were given chocolates and gifts like crayons, pencils etc. as a token of appreciation. The event was attended by Ms Revathi Balakrishnan, Assistant Director – Student Affairs; Dr Abdul Mohimin, Assistant Director – Physical Education and Mr Narendra Babu, Manager – Student Affairs.

Every year on November 14 India celebrates Children’s Day, the birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister. The day is also known as Bal Diwas. He adored children and once said that children are the country’s future and that they should be loved. Children also adored him and referred to him as ‘Chacha Nehru.’

 Solution to plastic pollutionTo nurture and cultivate innovation, there are no best-practice solutions. The structures and processes that many leaders employ instinctively to foster it are vital but insufficient. The Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at SRM University-AP is organising an influential session by Jyothsna Yerramsetti, CEO & Co-Founder- IUThink, on November 10, 2021, at 6.00 pm to promote and integrate innovative leadership among students. All participants will be given various gifts and certificates and participation.

IUThink is an organisation with a vision to provide a platform for grassroots, student and rural Innovators. It focuses on connecting students, innovators, startups and entrepreneurs to mentors, investors and creates opportunities to network with successful entrepreneurs. IUThink organises Startup/Innovation Summits where innovators and startups get a chance to exhibit their ideas and also provides entrepreneurial functionality support for college incubations. The main objective of IUThink is to create a proper Start-up Ecosystem to connect all the startups/entrepreneurs. In 2019-2021 it organised 3 innovation summits and connected 5000+ students/innovators/startups/ entrepreneurs and created a huge impact by organising awareness programmes.

Navier Stokes EquationsThe second lecture in the Distinguished Lecture Series organised by the Department of Mathematics at SRM University-AP will be held on November 10, 2021, at 4.30 pm. Prof Amiya Kumar Pani from the Department of Mathematics, IIT Bombay, will elucidate the lecture on the topic “Navier Stokes Equations: A Million Dollar Open Problem”.

On August 8, 1900, David Hilbert delivered his famous lecture about 23 open mathematical problems at the second International Congress of Mathematicians in Paris. This influenced the decision of a recently formed Clay Mathematical Institute (CMI) to announce the seven Millennium Prize Problems in the CMI Millennium Meeting held on May 24, 2000. One such problem is the theme of the present talk. Now it is widely accepted that the motion of an incompressible viscous fluid with moderate velocity is described by the Navier-Stokes Equations. Although these equations were written down in the 19th century, the existing mathematical results are not adequate to unfold the secrets hidden in the Navier-Stokes equations.

In this talk, Prof Amiya shall concentrate on a brief description of this problem, mathematical model, a quick look at history, what is known at this point, some important approaches and what is possibly needed. Finally, he will conclude the talk with a note on the present state of Indian applied mathematics and whether we are ready to contribute towards this millennium problem.

About the Speaker:

Prof Amiya K Pani is Professor at IIT, Bombay. He is well known for his research work in the area of numerical approximations of partial differential equations. His expertise includes construction, stability, and convergence analysis of finite element methods, finite difference schemes, orthogonal spline collocation methods for free boundary problems, partial integrodifferential equations, coupled equations in Oil Reservoir Studies, evolutionary variational inequalities, and scientific computations for industrial applications. Professor Pani is a fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Sciences, India. He was awarded the Best Young Mathematician for his outstanding contributions to Numerical Analysis, Partial Differential Equations, and Industrial Mathematics by the Indian Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ISIAM).
