India has a long history of engagement with mathematics. Ancient India had made impressive progress in Algebra.
- The place value system with the use of zero for representing numbers is an Indian invention.
- Mathematicians working in Kerala (in the South West of India) had anticipated many ideas that lie at the base of Calculus, some two centuries before Newton.
- In the more recent past – in the twentieth century, Ramanujan and Harish-Chandra blazed new trails in mathematics.
The Indian mathematical community is delighted at the opportunity we have been given to host the International Congress of Mathematicians in this country. We look forward to a very exciting congress which would help us widen our mathematical horizon.
We are happy to welcome our colleagues from around the world to the Congress. We hope that you will also be able to savour some of the touristic delights our country offers.
