The present thrust  areas of research in the  department are Functional analysis, Fourier series,  probability,  Geometric function theory, Differential equations, Differential Geometry and Geometry of Hamiltonian systems. Our students regularly qualify in national tests like NET/GATE/NBHM etc.. Earlier Dr. C.K. Mohapatra initiated many Olympiad camps in the state. MTTS level-O  programme was also organized here.  Our Library is funded by NBHM.
