Professor Neena Gupta, a mathematician at the Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, has been given the DST-ICTP-IMU Ramanujan Prize for her work in affine algebraic geometry and commutative algebra for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries in 2021.

Gupta is the third woman to get the Ramanujan Prize, which was first given in 2005 and is run by the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the Department of Science and Technology (DST) of India, and the International Mathematical Union (IMU) together (IMU).

The Ramanujan Prize is given each year to a mathematician who is less than 45 years old on December 31 of the award and who has done great work in a developing country. The prize is sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India.

Mathematicians from all over the world were on the DST-ICTP-IMU Ramanujan Prize committee, and they said that Gupta’s work “demonstrates impressive algebraic skill.”

Prof. Gupta’s solution to the Zariski cancellation problem, a fundamental problem in Algebraic Geometry, won her the 2014 Young Scientists Award from the Indian National Science Academy. They called her solution “one of the best works in algebraic geometry in recent years.” One of the most influential people who started modern Algebraic Geometry, Oscar Zariski, came up with the question in 1949 and tried to solve it. In an interview with an American university, Gupta says, “The cancellation problem asks if two geometric structures have cylinders on top of each other, and if the cylinders have the same shape, can one conclude that the original base structures have the same shape?”
