About the department
In order to ensure the implementation of the decision of the UNEC Scientific Council on 09.10.2019, No. EN167, from 03.02.2020, the department of “Mathematics” and “Statistics and Econometrics” was united and the department of “Mathematics and Statistics” was formed.
History of the department of “Mathematics” as an independent department begins in 1966. However, mathematics has always been taught in the department of Physics and Mathematics since the 1930s of XX century.
Wellknown Azerbaijani scientists, academician Jalal Allahverdiyev, corresponding members of ANAS Goshgar Ahmadov, Arif Babayev and professor Amir Habibzadeh worked at the Mathematics department. Professor Tofig Karimov (19661977), Associate Professor, Adelaida Babayeva (19771987), prof. Hamlet Isaxanli (19871991), prof. Nazim Musayev (19912009), honorary professor Mustafa Garayev (20092016) supervised the department. Professor of the Department, honoured Scientist Mammad Mammadov served as a MP of the Republic of Azerbaijan and chairman of the Standing Committee on Economic Policy. Former employees of the department, prof. Hamlet Isakhanli is the rector of Khazar University, prof. Ahmad Valiyev is the rector of Odlar Yurdu University.
Since 2016, the department has been headed by doctor of Mathematical Sciences, professor, Natig Ahmadov. Professor Natig Ahmadov is a member of the editorial board of the journal “Transactions” issue mechanics series of physicaltechnical and mathematical science of ANAS, the member of dissertation council FD 2.17 operating at Baku State University and chairman of the scientific seminar operating under this dissertation council.
Dozens of textbooks, methodical aids and programs on mathematics for economists have been developed and published by the teachers of the department. Textbooks of a number of foreign authors have been translated into Azerbaijani by teachers of the department. The scientific research works of the employees of the department were published in prestigious journals on mathematics and mechanics, and were presented at international conferences. Many of the results of scientific research carried out by the Department of Mathematics have been published in the Web of Science and impact factor journals included in the Scopus database.
“Linear Algebra and Mathematical Analysis”, “Linear Algebra and Analytical Geometry”, “Linear Algebra”, “Mathematical Analysis”, “Mathematical Analysis1”, “Mathematical Analysis2”, “Complex Analysis”, “Applied Mathematics” , “Engineering Mathematics”, “Differential Equation”, “Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics” are taught in the department.
Separate staff training in statistics was available at all stages of our university’s operation. In the 30s of the XX century, this major was a part of the “General Economics” department, but from 1938 to 2020 there was an independent “Statistics” department. Wellknown scientists Grigory Issakovich Goncharski, Alibey Rustambey oglu Sultanov, Alakbar Guliyev, Shirzad Safarov, Hajibaba Ramazanov, Soltan Alakbarov, Ali Kazimov, Nagy Tagizade, Said Agamirzayev Alibey Sultanov worked at the “Statistics” department. In 19641969 the department was headed by Sadi Hajiyev. S.M. Hajiyev is the first doctor of sciences on Statistics in the Caucasus. In the following years, the department of “Statistics” was headed by Assoc. Q.H. Mammadov (19691974), Assoc.Prof. R.S.Seyidov (19741979), Assoc. Prof. O.I. Ibrahimov (19791988), Assoc.Prof. R.Sh.Mammadov (19881993), Assoc.Prof. S.C.Aliyev (19942000).
From 2000 to 2017 Doctor of Economic Sciences, Professor Sakit Mamadi Yagubov headed the department of Statistics, and from 2017 to 2018 he headed the department of Statistics and Econometrics.
S.M. Yagubov is the author of 120 scientific works, textbooks, teaching aids and methodical instructions. Under the supervision of Professor S.M.Yagubov, 19 people received scientific degree of candidate of sciences and 1 doctor of sciences. Sakit Mamadi oglu Yagubov is the ViceRector for Scientific Affairs of ASEU. He is currently the only doctor of sciences in statistics in the Republic of Azerbaijan.
Bringing international standards into the teaching process and teaching and methodological aids necessary for this purpose have been developed directly by the academic staff of the “Statistics” department. These materials reflect the conceptual basis for bringing the statistical service in line with international standards. Curricula, methodical aids and textbooks prepared by the “Statistics” department are used in all public and private higher and secondary schools of the republic.
The disciplines “Statistics”, “Applied Statistics”, “Population Statistics”, “Social Statistics”, “Financial and Banking Statistics”, “Commodity and Services Market Statistics”, “Enterprise Statistics”, “Economic Transaction Research”, “Econometrics”, Subjects “Introduction to statistical modelling”, “Transport and communication statistics”, “Statistical software packages”, “Statistics of household budgets” are taught in the department.
Students of the department of Statistics currently hold various senior positions: Natig Amirov – head of the Department of Economic Policy and Industrial Affairs of the Presidential Administration of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Assistant to the President, candidate of economic sciences, Rauf Salimov – Deputy Chairman of the State Statistics Committee of the Republic of Azerbaijan, PhD in Economics, Yusif Yusifov – Deputy Chairman of the State Statistics Committee of the Republic of Azerbaijan, candidate of Economic Sciences, Mais Yusifov – Chairman of Atatechnology Company.
The department of “Economic Cybernetics” was established in 1967. Since its inception, educationalmethodical and scientificresearch work in the field of economic cybernetics and optimal management of economic systems, economicmathematical modeling of economic and social systems, mathematical programming and research of operations have been carried out at the department of “Economic Cybernetics” under the supervision of professor B.S.Musayev. Prof. B.S. Musayev was awarded the State Prize of Azerbaijan in 1984 for his research in the field of optimal management of the national economy and its areas. Later, the department of “Economic Cybernetics” was renamed “Econometrics”. From 2011 to 2017, the department was headed by Assoc. Prof. Y.I. Hajizalov. During these years, a textbook “Econometrics”, a textbook “Mathematical Programming”, a textbook “Solution of economicmathematical models in the EXCEL package.” have been published in the department.
In 2017, the department of Econometrics was merged with the department of Statistics and renamed the department of Statistics and Econometrics. In 2020, the department of Statistics and Econometrics was merged with the department of Mathematics and renamed the department of Mathematics and Statistics.
The department of “Mathematics and statistics” cooperates with the faculty of “Mathematics, mechanical and computer sciences” of the Russia Southern Federal University (former Rostov State University), the departments of “Mathematics” and “Mechanics” of Don Technical University, with the sector of “Situation center” of the Russia Economic university named after Plekhanov, with the department of “Econometrics”of Sakarya university of Turkey, the department of “Econometrics” of Istanbul university of Turkey.
Department of Mathematics and Statistics 1) Functional analysis and its applications, 2) Mathematical models and its applications, 3) The use of administrative and large data sources in the production of official statistical data and the prospects for reducing the statistical reporting burden on respondents.
Currently the academic staff consisting of 37 people works at the department of “Mathematics and Statistics”. 2 of them are doctors of sciences, professors, 1 doctor of sciences, associate professor, 19 doctors of philosophy, associate professors, 3 PhDs, senior teacher, 4 senior teachers, 2 doctors of philosophy, teachers, and 5 teachers
