Dr. Narendra Karmarkar
Adjunct Professor, IIT Bombay
Scientific Consultant worked for HPC, IITM Government of India; Scientific Advisor to Chairman of TATA Group
Email: narendrakarmarkar@yahoo.com
Research Interests: After working on the Interior Point Method, Karmarkar worked on a new architecture for supercomputing, based on concepts from projective geometry. Currently, he is synthesizing these concepts with some new ideas he calls sculpturing free space (a non-linear analogue of what has has popularly been described as folding the perfect corner). This approach allows him to extend this work to the physical design of machines.
