probability theory, stochastic processes, partial differential equations.

Varadhan’s theory of large deviations provides a unifying and efficient method for clarifying a rich variety of phenomena arising in complex stochastic systems, in fields as diverse as quantum field theory, statistical physics, population dynamics, econometrics and finance, and traffic engineering. It has also greatly expanded our ability to use computers to simulate and analyze the occurrence of rare events. Over the last four decades, the theory of large deviations has become a cornerstone of modern probability, both pure and applied.

2007 Abel prize (Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters) “for his fundamental contributions to probability theory and in particular for creating a unified theory of large deviation”.

His awards and honours also include the Birkhoff Prize (1994), the Margaret and Herman Sokol Award of

the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, New York University (1995), and the Leroy Steele Prize (1996). He also has two honorary degrees from Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris (2003) and from Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, India (2004).

Srinivasa Varadhan has been elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1988), the Third World Academy of Sciences (1988), and the National Academy of Sciences (1995). He was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (1991), the Royal Society (1998) and the Indian Academy of Sciences (2004).
