Research Interests

Varadarajan's research has always been motivated by a desire to understand the role of symmetry in mathematics and physics. It has not been restricted to one branch of mathematics although a great part of it has been in the theory of Lie groups and their applications to quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. In recent years, he has worked in the theory of differential equations that are meromorphic and the associated moduli problems. Current work centers around supersymmetry and representations of super Lie groups and super homogeneous spaces.
