Here I want to share my views regarding various options available for a student to study Mathematics as a field of research, right from undergraduate level.

Also please note that all views I express here are my personal & are based upon assumption that you LOVE mathematics from core of your heart [just like Paul Erdos, Srinivasa Ramanujan …..]

Also there is are two beautiful articles on this topic:

  1. For a career in mathematics (The Hindu, 2011) by Prof. S. Kesavan (IMSc, Chennai)
  2. Pursuing Mathematics in India (Resonance, 2012) by Prof. B V Rajarama Bhat (ISI, Bangalore Centre) and Prof. K B Athreya (Iowa State University, USA)

There are also yearly compilations by various institutes of India regarding “Mathematical Olympiad  & other scholarships, research programmes” by Dr. A. Vijayakumar  [Regional Coordinator , INMO, Professor & Head Department of Mathematics, Cochin University of Science and Technology]
