# Manjul Bhargava

**Category: **Research Fellows

**Affiliation: ** Princeton University

Manjul Bhargava received his PhD from Princeton University in 2001 under the supervision of Andrew Wiles. His research interests span algebraic number theory, combinatorics, and representation theory. Bhargava’s research includes fundamental contributions to the representation theory of quadratic forms and to *p*-adic analysis, as well

as 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. Manjul was appointed as a Clay Research Fellow for a term of five years beginning July 2000.

The 2005 Clay Research Award was made to Manjul for his discovery of new composition laws for quadratic forms and for his work on the average size of ideal class groups.
