A 3-Day Akal International Workshop on Mathematical Computations Using Software

Akal University proactively works towards the advancement of students in distinctive fields. It takes action on skill enhancement and development of learners and provides them with a constructive ambience where they can grow comprehensively.

To provide beginners a wide-ranging theoretical and practical understanding of R, Mathematics, and MATLAB. The Department of Mathematics recently arranged workshops for 3 days, “International Workshop on Mathematical Computation Using Software” (IWHMCS) 2023. The workshop featured five distinguished spokespersons from renowned universities, each shedding light on different aspects of mathematical computation using the software.

The workshop began with the recitation of Shabad.

Dr. Sandeep Singh, the Head of the Mathematics Department, welcomed everyone, and the honorable Vice Chancellor, Dr. Gurmail Singh, accomplished an inauguration ceremony.

Day 1: Exploring MATLAB and Mathematica Software

Prof. Deep Singh – Central University of Punjab introduced the students to what MATLAB is all about. He explained its fundamentals, including components, workspace, command history, and command window. He also guided students in the software’s basic operations, like Built-in functions for handling Arrays and Mathematical functions on arrays.

Dr. Luckshay Batra – Delhi University, India, familiarized the students with Mathematical software. They explored the various components of Mathematica and learned how to navigate the workspace, command history, and command window. Students also gained insights into array manipulation, mathematical operations, and utilizing built-in functions effectively.

Day 2: Mastering Plotting with R Software and MATLAB

On the 2nd day of the workshop, Prof. Shalabh from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, guided students in Plotting R Software Participants to learn the structure of function files, input/output arguments, and conditional statements. 

Prof. Ebenezer Bonyah – Akenten Appiah Menka, University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development, Kumasi, Ghana, shared his valuable insights on Mathematical Computations using MATLAB Software. Students learned about advanced data plotting techniques, including 2D-3D data visualization, function file creation, structure, input/output arguments, and leveraging conditional statements and loops for efficient computations.

Day 3: Exploring Mathematica for Mathematical Computations

On the last day of the workshop, Prof. J.V. Ramana Reddy – Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, familiarized the students with Mathematical Computations using Mathematica Software. Students also gained hands-on experience with array manipulation, basic mathematical operations, and utilizing built-in functions efficiently.


The International Workshop on Mathematical Computation Using Software was a resounding success, thanks to the active participation of both students and faculty. It provided students with a broad spectrum of databases and different software. In the era of digitization, some demanding skills are considered essential such as Handling databases, technical knowledge, and applications. Akal University understands this very well and regularly arranges workshops that help students to enhance their potential.
