RESEARCH INSTITUTE FOR COMPUTATIONAL MATHEMATICS AND PHYSICS

Email: ricmp@cnu.edu.ph

Objectives

The institute aims to attain the following specific objectives:

1. Determine research trends in the area of approximation theory with emphasis on special functions in combinatorics and mathematical physics and their applications to identify possible research problems;

2. Produce fully funded researches; 

3. Publish papers in highly-indexed journals;

4. Host trainings, seminars and conferences to disseminate research results and to acquire new research problems from researchers abroad;

5. Propose a research-based advanced training program (or Ph.D. in Mathematics program) on approximation theory with emphasis on special functions in combinatorics and mathematical physics and their applications;

6. Conduct or offer a research-based advanced training program (or Ph.D. in mathematics program) to train mathematics researchers to become globally competitive in the research arena of approximation theory with emphasis on special functions in combinatorics and mathematical physics and their applications;

7. Train students to become globally competitive in the research arena of approximation theory with emphasis on special functions in combinatorics and mathematical physics and their applications;

8. Produce a textbook on approximations of special functions;

Develop a specialized journal with title “Approximations of Special Functions and Applications”.

Focus of the Research Institute

         The institute will focus on research activities related to approximation theory with emphasis on special functions in combinatorics and mathematical physics and their applications that would produce results publishable in reputable and highly indexed journals. The institute will also focus on conducting trainings for the development of math and physics faculty in Cebu Normal University as well as math teachers in the region to become productive in research and to get updated on the recent trends in research in the fields, and developing tools and methodologies based on approximation theory for the use in teaching and learning.

Organizational Structure

The institute will be headed by the Institute Director. The criteria of selecting the Institute Director is based on

1. research track record;

2. highest educational attainment;

3. academic rank.

       Moreover, the institute is subdivided into two divisions: the Division of Mathematics (DCM) and the Division of Mathematical and Material Physics (DCMP). Each division is manned with Division Chair, at least three (3) Research Staffs (RS) and one (1) Technical Staff (T. Staff).

 

The following is a diagram showing the organizational structure of the institute:
