Prestigious Lectures And Nontechnical Award Winning Papers

Note: Dr. Haldar’s research direction changed several times.  To efficiently document the information, the List of Publications section is developed emphasizing his changes in research direction. After listing prestigious lectures and nontechnical award winning papers, the publication section is presented in three parts: (1) original basic research where his leadership is universally acclaimed, (2) academic research on miscellaneous areas of the highest quality and (3) basic research in collaboration with industries providing solutions to real, practical complex problems.  To document the intellectual significance and impact on the University's mission and evidence of national and/or international recognition and leadership, each area is then developed by identifying major invited international presentations, followed by books, edited books, book chapters, referred and conference papers, as appropriate.  Technical reports are listed next followed by other invited presentations on different topics not cited before.
