Brief Profile of the Awardee

awardee

Dr Vaikalathur Shankar Sunder

  • 1996
  • Mathematical Sciences
  • 06/04/1952
  • Subfactors, Operator Algebras, Functional Analysis
Award Citation:

Dr Sunder discovered integral hypergroups which describe the fusion rules governing the irreducible bimodules coming from a subfactor in the theory of von Neumann algebras. This has led to the important conclusion that certain graphs cannot arise as principal graphs of subfactors, thereby settling a well-known conjecture of Ocneanu.
