The Shanmugha Arts, Science, Technology, Research Academy (SASTRA),
based in the state of Tamil Nadu in South India,
has instituted the SASTRA Ramanujan Prize of $10,000 to be
given annually to a mathematician not exceeding the age of
32 for outstanding contributions in an area of mathematics
influenced by the late Indian mathematical genius Srinivasa
Ramanujan. The age limit has been set at 32 because Ramanujan
achieved so much in his brief life of 32 years. The prize will
be awarded each year at an international conference conducted
by SASTRA in Kumbakonam, Ramanujan’s hometown, around Ramanujan’s
birthday, December 22.
