Project
Our project, dealing with the study of singular MASAs in von Neumann algebras,addresses two main objectives 1) the global study of MASAs and their generic properties in a given von Neumann algebra, and 2) the investigation of explicit MASAs in quantum group von Neumann algebras, possibly including type III examples. As usual, in Pure Mathematics, we will attack both objectives simultaneously. We expect indeed crossfertilization between the research to be conducted towards each of these objectives. For each objective, we have identified different tasks/activities, of which some can be attacked immediately.
We investigate certain analytic and geometric aspects of quantization. This deals with establishing a mathematically precise correspondence between quantum, classical and scattering resonances in uniform ways on spaces admitting large (noncompact Lie) groups of symmetries.
We study of completely positive maps and completely bounded maps at different contexts. It includes the investigation of some of the mathematical aspect of Quantum Channels, Gaussian Channels, Semigroup theory of completely bounded maps etc.

Societal impact
As pure mathematicians, the only societal impact locally with respect to time the CoE can make is to generate and share knowledge and create wouldbe flag bearers in the subject for India to carry on. Without a strong school in the subjects depicted above, a nucleararmed nation is unheard of and inconsistent. The audacity of our hope attempts to sow the seeds.
Sustenance statement
We propose a centre of learning and research continuing continuously. Promising research in Mathematics never happens without researchers always training and updating themselves. The research will continue with whatever funds we can manage from NBHM, DST, under various schemes. We will also try to obtain CEFIPRA, Fullbright, IndoUS, DFGn and other external funds by ourselves and our collaborators in India rotating as PIs. We do believe that the support we require beyond the stipulated times depends on two components:
 our hard work and
 the general attitude of the public sector. The former is in our hands, but for the later, we would make a point.
Technical/ Scientific Progress
New work done in the project
The class of kentanglement breaking maps was recently introduced in the context of quantum information theory. We studied the mapping cone structure of kentanglement breaking maps. We established various characterization of kentanglement breaking maps. We also characterized completely positive which strictly reduce the Schmidtnumber of nonseparable quantum states. We studied many concrete examples, determine parameter regions where these maps are kentanglement breaking, and discussed some of their significance in separability of quantum states. Further extended a spectral majorization result for separable states.
On a current study we studied the C*convex set of entanglement breaking maps and give a complete description of C*extreme points.
