2007 Guggenheim Fellows And Abel Prize Winner

The five Indian American Guuggenheim Fellows this year include a jazz musician (Rudresh Mahanthappa), two computer scientists (Sanjeev Kumar and Salil Vadhan), an author (Suketu Mehta), and an earth scientist (Arjun Heimsath). Picked from a pool of almost 2800 applicants, each winner gets more than $40,000. Also worth mentioning is that, for the first time since its inception in 2002, the Abel Prize has been awarded to an Indian American, Srinivasa Varadhan, who is with the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences in New York. Dubbed the Nobel Prize for math, Norway-based Abel is worth $920,000. "Over the last four decades," as the committee puts its, Varadhan's "theory of large deviations has become a cornerstone of modern probability, both pure and applied."
