2006 Ramanujan Prize Winner

Ramdorai Sujatha, TIFR, India, receives recognition for her outstanding mathematical research

We are pleased to announce that the 2006 Ramanujan Prize for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries will be awarded to Professor Ramdorai Sujatha of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR). Dr. Sujatha received all her university education in India and has been with TIFR since 1985, where she is currently Associate Professor in the School of Mathematics.
The Prize is in recognition of her work on the arithmetic of algebraic varieties and her substantial contributions to non-commutative Iwasawa theory. In particular, together with Coates, Fukaya, Kato and Venjakob, she formulated a non-commutative version of the main conjecture of Iwasawa theory, which now drives much of the work in this important subject.
The Prize is supported financially by the Norwegian Niels Henrik Abel Memorial Fund.
