 1 Beautiful, Simple, Exact, Crazy: Mathematics in the Real World (480 pp., with Anna Lachowska) Yale University Press, 2015. The book title is inspired from a talk by Israel Moiseevich Gelfand. The course which I developed and taught in Spring 2011 at Yale, and which led to the book. The announcements from Yale Mathematics and from Yale University. 2 Representations of complex semi-simple Lie groups and Lie algebras Connected at Infinity II: A Selection of Mathematics by Indians (R. Bhatia, C.S. Rajan, and A.I. Singh, Eds.), Texts and Readings in Mathematics (TRIM), Hindustan Book Agency, pages 85–129, 2013.
