Person: Gupta, Shanti Swarup
Shanti Gupta was an Indian mathematician who worked in America. He worked in statistics and decision theory.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 For example in the year which Gupta was awarded his doctorate, three scientists at the Bell Laboratories were awarded a Nobel Prize in Physics for inventing the transistor.
 Gupta's first publications include the following with Milton Sobel: On a statistic which arises in selection and ranking problems (1957); On selecting a subset which contains all populations better than a standard (1958); On the distribution of a statistic based on ordered uniform chance variables (1958); and Selecting a subset containing the best of several binomial populations (1960).
 Gupta publication record is exceptional containing over 200 items.
 Gupta held academic posts at universities such as the University of Alberta and New York University where he worked at the Courant Institute.
 For his many contributions to statistics, Gupta was honoured by election as a fellow of several societies such as the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Statistical Association, and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (for which he served a term as president).
Born 15 January 1925, Saunasi, Mainpuri, India. Died 11 January 2002, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA.
