Head of Department, Professor David DEVADZE

Prof. D. Devadze served as a Deputy Rector of Shota Rustaveli State University (1997-2004);  He was Head of the Kathedra of Applied Math and Informatics1992-2005;  Has been Member of the Council of Representatives, Shota Rustaveli State University.

Scientific activities:

David Devadze (Candidate of Physics and Mathematics, 1988. Topic: optimality conditions and the solution of difference methods for optimal control problems for elliptic equations , an object of optimal management tasks of first-order linear differential equations for the Riemann-Hilbert and nonlocal boundary conditions and relevant tasks’ numerical methods for the solution. He developed sufficient conditions in linear situation, necessary for optimality of Riemann-Hilbert and Bitsadze-Samarsky’s first order quasi-linear boundary conditions differential equations.

Built numerical algorithms for linear optimal control task solution on the basis of  Maximum’s principle. built difference schemes of non-local boundary conditions for the linear ordinary differential operators and second-order elliptic equations using operators of the exact difference scheme. Obtained agreed assessments of the speed rate of Sobolev space solutions. Studied issues of existence and uniqueness of the generalized solution for combined non-local boundary problems. The obtained outcomes are used to solve the optimization problems of elasticity, shells, diffusion, electromagnetism and other theories. 


The Department Overview

The Department of Applied Math and Computer Sciences was established in 2006.

The history of the former Applied Mathematics and Informatics Kathedra started in January 1992, composed of Docent David Devadze, Docent Tsitsino Sarajishvili, Docent Ibrahim Didmanidze, Docent Aslan Beradze, Murman Dumbadze, Docent Zaza Davitadze, Software Engineer Zebur Suramnidze.

The Kathedra worked in several directions. It served all the Faculties of the University with the curricula in Information Technologies and Computer Basics. In addition, the team of professors developed applied directions, such as numerical methods, optimization methods, graph theory, parallel programming, local algorithms, Operation Research.

Professors of Applied Mathematics and Informatics Kathedra as well as Department of Computer Sciences have contributed significantly to the former Batumi Pedagogical Institute and later to the Batumi State University. They have served as educators and researchers and took active part in the University management.

Work in progress

The Department serves all the BSU Faculties which offer courses in information technologies in the undergraduate curricula.

The Department offers undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs in Computer Technologies and PhD degree program in Computer Technology. The excellent infrastructure and advanced hardware and software facilitates progress of the teaching, learning and research process in this busy and vibrant environment. The Department updates the training programs, hardware and software on regular basis and tailors them to adjust to the need for continuous improvement.

Research topics:

The Department of Computer Sciences currently is focused on the research direction: algorithms and computational methods, supervised by Professor David Devadze, who currently is studying  Mathematical models and computer simulations.

The communities involved in the research department of computer science professors, doctoral, masters. Joining local and international conferences.

Algorithms for computer software designed and developed their mathematical models. Computer programs designed C ++ programming languages. Also designed Parallel synchronous and asynchronous algorithms and applications.
