About this book

In a distinguished scientific life that had spanned over five decades, Alladi Ramakrishnan made significant contributions to probability and statistics, elementary particle physics, cosmic rays and astrophysics, matrix theory, and the special theory of relativity. Inspired by his visit to the Institute of Advanced Study during 1957-1958, and the direct influences of Robert Oppenheimer, Niels Bohr, Sir C.V. Raman, S. Chandrasekhar, and other notable contemporaries, he later founded the Institute of Mathematical Sciences (MATSCIENCE) in Madras, India. In the spirit of Alladi Ramakrishnan’s profound interest and contributions to three fields of science — Mathematics, Statistics, and Physics — this volume contains invited surveys and research articles from prominent members of these communities who also knew Ramakrishnan personally and greatly respected his influence in these areas of science. Historical photos, telegrams, and biographical narratives of Alladi Ramakrishnan’s illustrious career of special interest are included as well.

About the authors

Krishnaswami Alladi is the editor in Chief of Springer's Ramanujan Journal, and the Development in Mathematics Book series. He was chair of the mathematics department of the University of Florida. In addition to his contributions of bibliographic material about his father, Krishnaswami Alladi has directed and organized the development of this tribute volume. C.R. Rao is inarguably the most prominent academic in the field of Statistics in current times. John Klauder has served on the Physics Advisory Panel of the NSF and been Editor of the Journal of Mathematical Physics, and as President of the International Association of Mathematical Physics.
