Neena Gupta is the winner of the Ramanujan Prize for the year 2021. Here’s What the Zariski Cancellation Issue Is

Indian mathematician Neena Gupta has won the Ramanujan Prize for Young Mathematicians. Take a look at her biography, which includes details about her age, family, education, career, awards, and how she solved the Zariski Cancellation Problem.

The prestigious Ramanujan Prize 2021 has been awarded to Indian mathematician Neena Gupta. Professor at the Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, the proud Indian is a well-known mathematician. For her work on the Zariski Cancellation Problem, Neena was awarded the DST-ICTP-IMU Ramanujan Prize for young mathematicians from developing countries. In her biography, you can learn about her contributions to mathematics, the Zariski Cancellation Problem that she solved, and her family and work.

Age, Early Life, Family, and Career of Neena Gupta

Neena Gupta was born in a typical Indian family in Kolkata in 1984. She received her BSc (Honours) degree in Mathematics from Bethune College in 2006. She received her postgraduate degree in mathematics from the Indian Statistical Institute in 2008, and her PhD in commutative algebra in 2011.

She won the TWAS Young Affiliates 2020 and the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award 2019.

In 2013, she was awarded an Associateship by the Indian Academy of Sciences and the TIFR Alumni Association’s Saraswathi Cowsik Medal for her work on the Zariski Cancellation Problem in positive character.

Winning the Ramanujan Prize for Mathematicians in 2021:

The DST-ICTP-IMU Ramanujan Prize for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries has been awarded to Neena Gupta. Her contributions to affine algebraic geometry and commutative algebra have been recognised. Her work on the Zariski Cancellation Problem for affine spaces, in particular, has been lauded and rewarded with this award.

The Ramanujan Award is given to mathematicians under the age of 45 by the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste. It is supported by the Indian government’s Department of Science and Technology (DST).

“I feel honoured to receive this prize,” Neena Gupta told a leading news daily, “but this is not enough.” As a researcher, I believe there are many more mathematical issues for which we must find a solution. Receiving recognition for my efforts encourages me to work even harder in the field of research.”

What is the Zariski Problem with Cancellation?

The world’s greatest mathematical problem is the Zariski Cancellation Problem, which is a fundamental problem of algebraic geometry. “The cancellation problem,” as Neena Gupta puts it, “asks whether you can conclude that the original base structures have similar forms if you have cylinders over two geometric structures that have similar forms.”
