Infosys prize for Nalini Anantharaman

09 January 2019

Professor Nalini Anantharaman has been awarded the 2018 Infosys prize from the Infosys Science Foundation for her work related to “Quantum Chaos” in the category of the mathematical sciences.

Nalini Anantharaman is currently member of the Institute for Advanced Mathematical Research (IRMA) at the University of Strasbourg. She holds a Chair of Mathematics at USIAS. The quantum world is the one of the deepest secrets of the universe, and mathematics is the language that helps us understand this world. Professor Anantharaman’s work impressively explores the deep relationship between classical and quantum systems and the unexpected use of entropy to prove some of the hard results.

The Infosys Prize is awarded by the Infosys Science Foundation, a not-for-profit trust set up in 2009. The award is given annually to honour outstanding achievements of contemporary researchers and scientists across six categories: Engineering and Computer Sciences, Humanities, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences and Social Sciences.
