Create a strong research ecosystem that responds swiftly  to the challenges of the 21st century.


Provide quality non-traditional education in both the computer science and applicable mathematics and train bright young minds to effectively apply knowledge to solve real-world problems thus amplifying their potential for high-quality careers and give them a competitive advantage in the ever-changing and challenging global work environment of the 21st century.

Conduct research to advance the state of the art in computer science and integrate  research results and innovations into other scientific disciplines.

Provide scientific expertise to the interested parties.


Offer high-quality training activities, symposia and workshops for researchers and students;

Evaluate training offered elsewhere and where appropriate, partner with offering providers to make it available through the TMRF;

Become a model and an influential voice in the national/international dialogue regarding professional standards and expectations in the applicable mathematics and computer science.


From its beginning, it has been intended that the TMRF should be devoted to the Mathematical Sciences in the broad sense, i.e. all areas of mathematics including computer science. The range of sciences in which mathematics plays a important role is huge. Therefore, selecting appropriate topics, important principles are that no topic is excluded a priori and that scientific merit is to be the deciding factor. As we always stress  main objective of the TMRF is to overcome the normal barriers presented by departmental structures in universities around the world. Our major criterion in judging the `scientific merit' of a proposed programme for the TMRF is the extent to which it is `interdisciplinary'. Naturally  this will  bring together researchers with different backgrounds and expertise; sometimes a single mathematical topic may attract a wide associates from other fields. The Scientific Committee, which consists of trustee members and well-known scientists, therefore works within the following guidelines:

  • there has to be transparent common ground on which to focus;
  • each programme should have a substantial and noteworthy mathematical content;
  • each programme should have a wide foundation in the mathematical sciences.

Obviously, our aim is to select programmes which represent serious and important mathematical science and which will attract the very best mathematicians and computer scientists from all over the world. However, the TMRF is interested also to proposals of an unorthodox nature if a strong scientific case is made.
Although the TMRF operates on a worldwide basis and contributes thereby to the general advancement of mathematical science, it must also be considered in the context of Indian mathematical science. A natural expectation of all those concerned is that each program will be of benefit to the Indian mathematical community in a variety of ways. If India is strong in the field, Indian scientists will play a major part in the program; if India is comparatively weak in the field, the program should help to raise Indian standards and instructional courses, aimed primarily at younger researchers and research students, would play a vital role here.


TMRF is governed  administratively by a Trustee Board under the leadership of the Chairman. The Board receives input from various  scientific committees, apointed time to time, that represents  various  senior scientists within and outside India.
