Azerbaijan Technical University Curriculum
Higher mathematics chair is one of the first chairs created at the Azerbaijan Technical University (in the past, the Azerbaijan Polytechnical Institute). Professor R.M.Sultanov was the first head of chair.
In 1951-1962 chair was headed by the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, associate professor Halil Gadzhi ogly Bagirov. During the management of chair he paid much attention to the improvement of teaching of mathematics and carried out number of significant works in this direction.
Later in 1962-1969 the experienced teacher having big merits in the organization of pedagogical education, the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, professor Takhir Hasan ogly Abdullayev became the head of the department "Higher mathematics". During this period the scientific and pedagogical capacity of chair was sufficiently improved.
At different times academicians of NANA I.I.Ibragimov, F.G.Maksudov taught at chair.
In 1971-1976 chair was headed by the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, associate professor Abusalat Agahuseyn oglyHamidov.
Since 1977 until the end of life “Higher mathematics” chair was directed (is later than "Mathematician-1") by the doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor Ali Aziz ogly Novruzov. He was a scientist known in the USSR and abroad in the field of the qualitative theory of the differential equations. A.A.Novruzov prepared more than 25 candidates of science and of them later four which became doctors of science.
Professor A.A.Novruzov was the member of mathematical societies of the USA and Germany, the New York academy and, since 1977 till the end of his life, the chairman of Society of Mathematicians of Azerbaijan.
The chair organized mathematics teaching at high level, and for the purpose sharing experiences with other highest technical educational institutions of the USSR, in 1978 the first scientific and methodical conference in USSR devoted to a technique of teaching of mathematics at technical institutes was held at the Azerbaijani Polytechnical Institute.
In 2001 of “Mathematics-1” and “Mathematics-2” chairs were united in one, as “Mathematics” chair. In a top position of the head of the department became a doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor Anar Nadir ogly Alizadeh. Known for the research works in a scope of the variation principles in mechanics of a deformable firm body, the professor A.N.Ali-zade in 2007 was elected the corresponding member of National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan. He is an academician of the International Engineering Academy, the member of the German society of mathematics and mechanics.
