Professor Conjeeveram Seshadri FRS


Elected: 1988


Conjeeveram Seshadri was one of the most influential mathematicians working in the area of invariant theory and its application to the theory of moduli. He made fundamental contributions to classical invariant theory, to the construction of orbit spaces and to the theory of vector bundles. His discovery, jointly with Mudumbai Narashimhan, that, over compact Riemann surfaces, direct sums of stable holomorphic vector bundles were the bundles associated with unitary representations of pi1, and that these formed the points of a projective moduli space, was an important breakthrough which opened up a major area of investigation.

Professor Conjeeveram Seshadri FRS died on 17 July 2020.
