The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has expressed grief over the demise of Professor M. S. Narasimhan.
Mudumbai Seshachalu Narasimhan (1932 – 2021) was an Indian mathematician.
He is known, along with C. S. Seshadri, for their proof of the Narasimhan–Seshadri theorem, which says that a holomorphic vector bundle over a Riemann surface is stable if and only if it comes from an irreducible projective unitary representation of the fundamental group.
He headed the research group in Mathematics at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste. He was a honorary fellow at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research.
He has been the only Indian to receive the King Faisal International Prize in the field of science.
