Most Cited in Computer Science from India

Extracted from Citeseer Reseach Index. This is an automatic citation index. It seems to record citations in publicly available documents over the web (typically post 1990),  although the cited paper may be older. As a result it misses citations in print.

Citations are a good measure of Impact of a work. Other measures such as citations in Handbooks/Textbooks, invited presentations in leading forums  are also important but not considered here as it is not easy to gather such data.

    * manually determined using citeseer citation search ordered by date of paper being cited.

    Some names representing multiple authors where  omitted  after manual checking that the relevant Indian author's individual citations are well below 150.
    On the other hand, some authors use multiple ways of writing names leading to under-count.

    Highly Cited Papers by Authors in India

    Includes  works with over 70 citations (excluding self citations) where at least one author
      1. is currently in India althought the work may have been  done abroad, or
      2. has work which was done/published when the author was in India.
