2016 SASTRA-Ramanujan award

Maksym Radziwill of McGill University, Canada, and  Kaisa Matomaki of University of Turku, Finland has jointly won 2016 SASTRA-Ramanujan award for mathematics for their ‘revolutionary’ collaborative work on short intervals in number theory. In number theory, understanding behaviour in short intervals is very important and also it is very difficult to prove this result. It is what Matomaki and Radziwill have achieved which was basically a shocking result. They were presented with this prestigious award at inauguration of International Conference on Number Theory at SASTRA University at Kumbakonam.
