This is a special collection of articles describing the work of some of the best-known mathematicians from India.
The first part contains seven articles by leading experts, each of whom chooses one major research paper by an Indian mathematician and explains to a wider audience its contents, context, importance, and impact. Works by R. C. Bose, S. Chowla, M. S. Narasimhan, M. S. Raghunathan, C. P. Ramanujam, C. S. Seshadri, and S. R. S. Varadhan are included here.
