Like 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.
