Recipient of Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award in Mathematical Science for the
“Dr. Karmeshu has developed mathematical models for the dynamics of social and
technical systems with special emphasis on their stochastic evolution. His contribution
towards the understanding of the unity of structure and dynamics of diverse
apparently unconnected systems is highly significant.”

Recipient of C. M. Jacob Medal for the year 1990, Systems Society of India.
“Prof. Karmeshu’s contribution to Systems Research is to develop mathematical
models of dynamical systems with special emphasis on stochastic evolution and
their applications to socio-economic and technical systems such as traffic systems,
population growth and dynamics of urbanization, competing social groups, technological
substitution and water resource systems.”
