About the Faculty
Amiya K.Pani did his Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur in 1986 and then joined as a faculty member in the Department of Mathematics at IITBombay in December 1986. After 35 and half years of service, he was superannuated from IITB on 30th June,2022. Then, he joined in the Department of Mathematics at BITS-Pilani, KK Birla Campus as a Visiting Professor in 1st July,2022. He is a Fellow of National Academy of Sciences (FNASc) and also a Fellow of Indian Academy of Sciences (FASc).
Amiya K. Pani's research interest is primarily 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 integro differential equations, coupled equations in Oil Reservior Studies, evolutionary variational inequalities and scientific computations for industrial applications. In short, his focus in Computational Mathematics is to develop efficient and accurate solutions to real world problems with a strong theoretical flavor.
