Connected at Infinity II: A Selection of Mathematics by Indians
Rajendra Bhatia, C. S. Rajan, and Ajit Iqbal Singh (Editors)

Trim 67Like its predecessor volume, this is a special collection of articles describing the work of some of the best known mathematicians from India. It contains eight articles written by experts, each of whom has chosen one major research contribution by an Indian mathematician, and explained its context, significance and impact. This is done in a way that makes the main ideas accessible to someone whose own research interests might be in a different area.

Included here are commentaries on important works by:
  • R. C. Bose, S. S. Shrikhande and E. T. Parker
  • H. Cramer and C. R. Rao
  • V. B. Mehta and A. Ramanathan
  • R. Narasimha
  • K. R. Parthasarathy, R. Ranga Rao, and V. S. Varadarajan
  • R. Parthasarathy
  • D. N. Verma
  • N. Wiener and P. R. Masani
1. Alok Dey: Orthogonal Latin squares and the falsity of Euler's conjecture
2. Frank Nielsen: Cramer-Rao lower bound and information geometry
3. Wilberd van der Kallen: Frobenius Splittings
4. A.S. Vasudeva Murthy: On the string equation of Narasimha
5. Apoorva Khare: Representations of complex semi-simple Lie groups and Lie algebras
6. S. Mehdi: Parthasarathy Dirac operators and discrete series representations
7. Henning Haahr Andersen: The Role of Verma in representation theory
8. V. Mandrekar: The work of Wiener and Masani on prediction theory and harmonic analysis
