Yes Santhosh, probably my wrong. Ramanujam was born in Erode, not very far away from Bangalore and grew up in kumbakonam, later in chennai, and i have heard he has lectured in IISC Bangalore, but may not have lived in bangalore.

The essence of this is there were lot of mathematicians (e.g. A Raghuram, Shankunthala Devi, M.S.Narasiman etc), in southern india, especially in bangalore and including we have the Institute of Statistics in Bangalore, apart from IISC, and Chennai Mathematical Institute – all great institutions that had maths as key.

]]>I knew CV Raman is from Bangalore. But its a news to me that Ramanujan lived in Bangalore. I thought he lived mostly in Chennai and went to England to work with Hardy.

]]>Hi Muthu,

Ramanujam is for sure one of the great ones . I was not aware that he lived in Bangalore. BTW about the Fields medal 2014 I guess you know that Manjul Bhargava who also got the medal is the son of an Indian immgrant and lives now in Ontario Canada. I think it is really worth to read more about him: Manjul Bhargava – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and there I read that his Doctoral advisor was Andrew Wiles ðŸ™‚

]]>Maths is key skill as its the our first touch point to think analytical. Always good programmers had decent mathematical abilities.

Number crunching and big data needs math problem solving.

And bangalore has produced many eminent mathematicians Ramanujam who lived here and A Raghuram…and many more….Bangalore labs, our second largest lab sure has many good math people
