Manjul Bhargava is a Clay Research Fellow (July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2005), and a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University.
His research interests span algebraic number theory, combinatorics, and representation theory. Some of his most acclaimed work appears in the recent article "The factorial function and generalizations" in the American Mathematical Monthly (November 2000), which explains his new generalization of the factorial function and its connections with some classical problems in number theory, ring theory, and combinatorics. Bhargava's research also includes fundamental contributions to the representation theory of quadratic forms, and to p-adic analysis. His research includes fundamental contributions to the representation theory of quadratic forms, to interpolation problems and p-adic analysis, and to the study of ideal class groups of algebraic number fields.
