Education

Narasimhan did his undergraduate studies at Loyola College, Chennai, where he was taught by Fr Racine. Fr Racine had studied with the famous French mathematicians Élie Cartan and Jacques Hadamard, and connected his students with the latest developments in modern mathematics. Among Racine's other students who achieved eminence, we may count Minakshisundaram, K. G. Ramanathan, C S Seshadri, Raghavan Narasimhan, and C. P. Ramanujam.

Narasimhan went to the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Bombay, for his graduate studies. He obtained his Ph.D. from University of Mumbai in 1960; his advisor was K. Chandrasekharan. Among Narasimhan's distinguished students is M. S. Raghunathan who followed in this footsteps to bag the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize as well as become FRS. Two other students who made a mark as top-notch mathematicians are S. Ramanan and V. K. Patodi.
