Welcome to our website! We are a group of scientists at TIFR Mumbai and ICTS Bengaluru working on topics across a spectrum of areas, broadly unified under the rubric of Random Geometry.
Specific areas of research:
- Algorithms, including applications of probabilistic ideas (Computer Science)
- Manifold Learning (Computer Science)
- Ergodic Theory (Mathematics)
- Holomorphic dynamics (Mathematics)
- Geometry, including Geometric group theory, Hyperbolic geometry and Geometric Topology (Mathematics)
- Probability (Mathematics)
- Statistical Physics (Physics)
- String Theory (Physics)
About the Infosys-Chandrasekharan Virtual Centre for Random Geometry:
The Infosys-Chandrasekharan Virtual Centre for Random Geometry was made possible by a generous endowment from the Infosys Foundation to the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in 2020.
Komaravolu Chandrasekharan (1920-2017), or KC as he was known to many, was a well-known figure in the scientific community in India during the fifties and sixties. This was the time when he headed the School of Mathematics at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Mumbai (then Bombay). Under his stewardship, the school grew from the fledgling that it was in 1950 into a world-renowned centre for mathematics, all in the short span of a decade and a half. The year 2020 is his birth centenary. The Infosys-Chandrasekharan Virtual Centre for Random Geometry, established in 2020, honours his legacy.
