# Department of Mathematical Methods in Economics

The Department of Mathematical Methods in Economics of the Institute of
Economics and International Relations of V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National
University was created on the 1st of September, 2008.

The
Department specializes in such areas as in such areas as Higher
Mathematics, Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics, Informatics
and Computer Technologies.

The professional cadre of the
Department has efficiently incorporated specialists who have fundamental
mathematical education, high qualification in the field of economic and
mathematical design, information technologies and programming, which
helps the students to form a wide complex of knowledge and skills.

The
Department is headed by Nazyrov Zaryf Fyatikhovych, Associate
Professor, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Science, Member of the
Scientific Council of the Faculty of Economics, the Scientific Council
of V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, Director of the Center of
International Education. On the whole, his scientific and pedagogical
experience makes up 31 year. Since 1986, he has worked at the Department
of Higher Mathematics and Informatics, where he has developed
professionally from an assistant to the Associate Professor. In the last
few years, his teaching load made on average 900 hours per year:
Nazyrov Z.F. gives lectures in the general courses of Higher
Mathematics, Methods of Approximate Calculations, and in the special
courses of Operational Methods, Functional Analysis in Computing
Mathematics, Spectral Methods of Solutions of Maxwell Equations in
Non-Stationary Tasks, etc.

Nazyrov Z.F. has published 23
scientific and educational and methodical works, among them 15 works are
of scientific character and 8 works are of educational and methodical
character. Eight works are published in the leading mathematical
periodicals. 2 articles are given into publishing. Zaryf Fyatikhovych
works actively in the scientific aspect, he has obtained some new
interesting results on spectral characteristics of Maxwell operator. He
has prepared (as a co-author) the following tuturials: “Methodical
Guidelines for Solution of Contest Tasks for Entrance Examinations in
Mathematics in KhSU”, 1996, 97, 98, 99, “Tasks for Entrance Examinations
in Mathematics in KhNU”, 2002, and “Contest Tasks in Mathematics for
Entrants”.

Nazyrov Z.F. has repeatedly taken part in the leading
international conferences and symposiums. The latest of them are: the
International Conference in Theory of Functions and Mathematical
Physics, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of N.I.Akhiezer, Kharkiv,
2001 (made a speech on the results of his scientific works); the
International Conference, dedicated to the 80th anniversary of
Academician V.O.Marchenko, Kharkiv, 2002 (made a report).

At
present, the professor and teaching staff of the Department consists of
17 persons, a 1st category methodologist and a 1st category engineer.
Among them are Doctors of Science, Professors Yantsevych A.A. and
Gorodnov V.P. The candidates of science - Associate Professors Nazyrov
Z.F., Dubrovin A.O., Mel'nikova O.P. and Farafonova N.K. fruitfully work
at the Department. And also there work senior lecturers: Yepishev S.M.,
Yefimova A.M., Zholtkevych N.A., Kozhanova O.K., Maslennykova O.V.,
Petrova A.Yu., Pyrogova I.Ye., Pirogova S.Ye., Farafonova A.K., Khomin
O.V., Shtrasser O.G.

The 1st category methodologist Taratuta O.Yu.
and the 1st category engineer Kosareva S.D.

The Department
carries out preparation of students by educational and qualification
levels of Bachelor, Specialist and Master. It also actively participates
in the development of extra-mural form of education in the places of
compact dwelling of students (distance form of education). At present,
the Department conducts preparation of 72 students by this form of
education in the cities of Krasniy Luch, Skadovsk, Slovyansk and
Feodosiya.

Nowadays, the lecturers of the Department provide the
educational process at the Faculty of Economics and at the Faculty of
International Economic Relations and Tourist Business. On the whole,
according to the curricula of Bachelors, Specialists and Masters, the
teachers of the Department give lectures in 10 normative disciplines.
The Department works by curricula elaborated for classical universities,
and also new curricula are implemented in accordance with the
requirements of Bologna Convention. The staff of the Department
introduces effective forms of educational and pedagogical process into
the educational process (lectures, seminars and practical studies,
discussions, business games, design and solution of practical tasks with
the help of computers). The credit and module system of assessment of
students’ knowledges has been introduced. Among the educational
disciplines read by the teachers of the Department, the main place is
occupied by the disciplines from the cycle of fundamental and
professionally oriented economic disciplines, for instance Mathematics
for Economists, Higher Mathematics, Probability Theory and Mathematical
Statistics, Economic Informatics, Informatics and Computer Technologies.

The Department conducts profound scientific research in the
following directions: financial mathematics, mathematical design of a
stock price, design and prognostication of economic processes, modelling
of financial activity of enterprises, banks and financial institutes,
economic and mathematical design, mathematical simulation of random
processes.

The Department supports active relations with the
leading institutions of higher education in Ukraine, scientific
establishments, enterprises and organizations. They co-operate in many
directions, participate in conferences and seminars, exchange scientific
and pedagogical experience, carry out internship of teachers,
participate in international projects, etc.
