Professional Achievements

In March 2005, I was appointed as the Regular Correspondent for the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA, Logo) Beam Dynamics Panel Newsletters (Logo), for the region of Middle East & Africa. ICFA, the International Committee for Future Accelerators (Logo), provides a forum to discuss and implement plans for further promoting collaborative accelerator-based science. Its primary purpose is to strengthen collaboration in accelerator-based science, to encourage future projects, and to make recommendations to governments. See the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA, Logo) Beam Dynamics Panel Newsletter (Logo), No. 36 (April 2005).

Homepages

I was instrumental in designing and installing the Department Homepages on the College Intranet: http://stfsvr03/mathsandstats/index.html and http://stfsvr03/physics/index.html. Also available at: http://stdsvr03/mathsandstats/index.html and http://stdsvr03/physics/index.html respectively. The above homepages contain the in-house prepared Lecture Notes and Question Banks, meeting most of the requirements of all the courses (three semester sequence in Mathematics, Statistics and Physics respectively) offered by the department.




Mathematics Olympiad

I was part of the three-member team, which jointly conducted the first Mathematics Olympiad in the College, on Wednesday the 26th May 2004. The other two members of the team were my Colleagues from the Department, Ms. Lavanya Venkatesan and Ms. Usha Ramanathan.

View: Photograph-01, Photograph-02, Photograph-03, Photograph-04, Photograph-05, Photograph-06, and Photograph-07.

The second Olympiad was conducted on Tuesday the 21 March 2006. These events are now evolving into a National Olympiad with the first Intercollegiate Mathematics Olympiad (http://www.mecit-quest.com/mathcontest.aspx) held on Sunday the 07 May 2006, during the Intercollegiate Meet, QUEST (Logo, http://www.mecit.edu.om/quest.html, http://www.mecit-quest.com/) during 6-8 May 2006.

Summary of the Current Research

(MS WORD Version, DVI Version, PS Version or/and PDF Version)

MAIN FIELDS OF RESEARCH: Mathematical Optics
I am working towards a unified treatment of light beam optics and polarization, using the standard mathematical machinery of quantum mechanics. Dirac-like form of the Maxwell equations is well known in literature. Starting with the Dirac-like form of the Maxwell’s equations a unified treatment of light beam optics and polarization has been obtained. The traditional results (including aberrations) of the scalar optics are modified by the wavelength-dependent contributions. Some of the well-known results in polarization studies are realized as the leading-order limit of a more general framework of our formalism. The existing matrix representations of the Maxwell’s equations were found to be approximate for the formalism developed here; hence, an exact matrix representation of the Maxwell’s equations was derived.

A related study was made starting with the scalar approximation of the Maxwell’s equations. Using the analogy of the Helmholtz equation with the Klein-Gordon equation and the Feshbach-Villars approach to the Klein-Gordon equation a formalism utilizing the powerful techniques of quantum mechanics has been developed for scalar optics including aberrations. This provides an alternative to the traditional square-root approach and gives rise to wavelength-dependent contributions modifying the aberration coefficients.

Some of the results have been published and others have been communicated.
