Like the first 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

A publication of Hindustan Book Agency; distributed within the Americas by the American Mathematical Society. Maximum discount of 20% for all commercial channels.
