Professor Chandrashekhar Khare Elected to The Royal Society
UCLA Mathematics Professor Chandrashekhar Khare has been named among 44 new 2012 fellows and eight foreign members elected to the Fellowship of The Royal Society. The society cites Khare as an "extremely original mathematician studying the relationship between Galois representations and modular forms. His forte is finding ingenious but relatively simple new ideas." The Royal Society is a self-governing fellowship of many of the world's most distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering, and medicine. Since its founding in 1660, the society's purpose has been to recognize, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity. Today there are approximately 1,500 fellows and foreign members, including more than 80 Nobel Laureates.
