Brief historical overview

1823 - Department of Higher Mathematics founded at the Mining Cadet Corps.
1853 - The first alumnus of the Mining Corps Professor G.A. Time, Academician O.I. Somov’s disciple, headed the Department of Higher Mathematics from 1865 to 1896.
1904 - N.M. Krylov, a graduate of the Mining Institute (Head of the Higher Mathematics Department from 1912-1917) received the Honored Professor G.A. Time Award for his work on geometrical applications of pseudo-elliptic integrals.
1958 - Professor A.M. Zhuravskiy (Head of the Higher Mathematics Department from 1920-1941 and 1955-1969) was conferred a Doctor of Engineering Sciences degree without defending his thesis at a viva voce, and in 1961 was decorated with  the Order of the Red Banner of Labor.
A sustained effort is made by departmental staff to develop unified tasks covering all sections of the higher mathematics course and individual calculation and graphic tasks, publication of lecture notes and practical workshop curricula. Associate Professor V.G. Labazin, (Head of the Department, 1971 - 1983) and Professor V.M. Gogolev, Honored worker of science and technology of the RSFSR (1984-1991) made a considerable contribution to the application-oriented course of higher mathematics for many specialties (use of numerical methods in engineering calculations, wide computer use). Since 1992, Professor A.P. Gospodarikov has headed the department.
The academic staff of the department deliver lectures on basic sections of the higher mathematics course to Mining University students of all specialties and in all modes of study, work closely with administrative departments of the university and draw up individual curricula  for all specialties. The department’s academic staff carry out fundamental and applied research, such as rock massif strain-stress state at multiaxial dynamic loads prediction, brittle fracture of elastic bodies, etc.
