Two academicians of Indian origin won world level prizes for Mathematics. One Manjul Bhargava won the fields Medal known as won the Rolf Nevalinna Prize awarded by the International congress of Mathematicians 2014 in Seoul.
A professor of Mathematics Bhargava won the fields Medal. This medal is used to be awarded every four years once. He was one among the four winners of the medal.
Bhargava was awarded the medal for developing powerful new methods in the geometry of numbers. He applied this to count rings of small rank and to bound the average rank of elliptic curves. His work is based on the representations of arithmetic groups and a unique blend of algebraic and analytic expertise.
Bhargava was born in Canada in 1974, spent his time in United States and spent much time only in India. He got his Ph.D in 2001 from Princeton University and became a professor in 2007.
The other awarded Subhash Khif did prescient definition of the “Unique games” problem and leading the effort to understand its complexity and its pivotal rule in the study of efficient approximation of optimization problems. This work paid the way in algorithmic design and approximation hardness and to new interactions between competition complexity analysis and geometry. He is from computer science Department at New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
