The concept of vector spaces and linear maps between vector spaces are used in all branches of mathematics. The Department of Mathematics is organising the sixth distinguished lecture Vector Bundles in affiliation with the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Tirupati, India. Renowned Indian Mathematician Prof D S Nagaraj is the keynote speaker of the lecture.
Date: September 21, 2022
Time: 3.30 PM
Venue: Tiered classroom, Level 5
The talk will explain the concept of vector bundles and mapping between vector bundles, a natural generalisation of vector spaces, and linear mapping between vector spaces. The concept of vector bundles and mapping between them is helpful in several advanced branches of mathematics.
About the speaker
Prof D S Nagaraj did his PhD from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai. He was a professor at the Institute of Mathematical Science (IMSc), Chennai, one of the premier research institutes in India. After his retirement in 2018 from IMSc, he joined as a professor at IISER, Tirupati, and currently is the head of the Mathematics Department there. A conference on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday was held at IMSc in 2018 to celebrate his works. His areas of interest include Algebraic Geometry, Commutative Algebra, and Number Theory. His profound scholarship on the subject influenced many young scholars who later became well-established mathematicians. He is exceptionally generous and approachable to young students who would try to learn algebraic geometry for the first time. He has significantly impacted a generation of mathematicians as a researcher and a great teacher. He was elected as a fellow of the Indian academy of sciences in 2010 and 2017.
