Infosys Science Foundation (ISF), a not-for-profit trust, set-up by the management of Infosys in February 2009, is organizing a public lecture at IIT Bombay by Prof. Chandrashekhar Khare, Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles, USA on Number Theory, one of the largest and most exciting branches of pure mathematics.
‘Infosys Science Foundation Lectures’ is a series of public talks, open to all, with a view to popularize interesting science and research and give a glimpse of possibilities to those who may choose research as a career. These talks are open to all.
Prof. Chandrashekhar Khare is the Professor of Mathematics at the University of California at Los Angeles, USA and the winner of Infosys Prize 2010 in Mathematical Sciences. After completing his early education in India, he went to the University of Cambridge, UK, for undergraduate studies which he completed in 1989. Professor Khare's graduate work was done at California Institute of Technology, where he worked with Haruzo Hida (at UCLA) and Dinakar Ramakrishnan (at Caltech) on Number Theory. Prof. Khare made a major advancement in the field of Galois representations and number theory by proving the level 1 Serre conjecture in the year 2005, and later a proof of the full conjecture with Jean-Pierre Wintenberger
