Indian-American Math Genius Nikhil Srivastava Helps Solve Famous 1959 Problem

Indian-American mathematician Nikhil Srivastava is one amongst three winners of The Ciprian Foias Prize


Eminent Indian-American mathematician Nikhil Srivastava, who teaches on the University of California, Berkeley, has been collectively chosen for the inaugural Ciprian Foias Prize in Operator Theory by American Mathematical Society (AMS).

Along with Nikhil Srivastava, the 2 different awardees are Adam Marcus and Daniel Spielman. Adam Marcus holds the Chair of Combinatorial Analysis on the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. Daniel Spielman is Sterling Professor of Computer Science, a professor of statistics and information science, and a professor of arithmetic.

The award recognises their extremely authentic work that launched and developed strategies for understanding the attribute polynomial of matrices, particularly the iterative sparsification technique (additionally in collaboration with Batson) and the tactic of interlacing polynomials, a media launch stated.

“Together, these ideas provided a powerful toolkit with many applications, notably in the trio’s breakthrough paper “Interlacing households II: combined attribute polynomials and the Kadison-Singer downside” (Annals of Mathematics, 2015), which solves the famous “paving downside” in operator principle, formulated by Richard Kadison and Isadore Singer in 1959,” American Mathematical Society stated.

In a joint assertion, the three awardees stated they want to settle for it on behalf of the many individuals whose work contributed to the decision of the Kadison-Singer downside.

“Our involvement was the ultimate chapter of an incredible story we hope will encourage related options to troublesome issues sooner or later,” they stated.

The prize will probably be introduced to Professor Nikhil Srivastava and his colleagues on January 5 subsequent yr on the 2022 Joint Mathematics Meeting in Seattle, described as “the most important arithmetic gathering on the planet.”

The Ciprian Foias Prize is the third main prize gained by Nikhil Srivastava, who earlier collectively gained the George Polya Prize in 2014, and the Held prize in 2021.
