The Man Who Knew Infinity is a British biographical drama film about the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, based on the book of the same name by Robert ed by: Edward R.

      About A.K. Ramanujan. A. K. RAMANUJAN () was William E. Colvin Professor of South Asian Languages and Civilizations and a member of the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago. He is the author of several volumes of poetry, including The Striders, Relations, and Selected More about A.K. Ramanujan. Ramanujan was a genius, but it took Hardy to recognize and bring the young man to England. For several years, their collaborations at Cambridge produced mathematical research that is still be mined today for interesting results. The book begins in South India where Ramanujan was born and lived most of .

      Ramanujan writes, "If you see the last paragraph in 'Mathew's [sic] Theory of Numbers' you will find the statement 'Hence we conclude that Gauss's approxima-tion was too great."' Thus, one of his two closest mathematical friends in Madras did have a copy of Mathews's book, and Ramanujan intimates that this source was well known to both of them. Srinivasa Ramanujan () was a mathematical genius who changed the world of mathematics in his short life. In this lesson, learn about his very interesting and unusual life and all the.

Ramanujan’s Notebooks The history of the notebooks, in brief, is the following: Ramanujan had noted down the results of his researches, without proofs, (as inA Synopsis of Elementary Results, a book on pure Mathematics,by G.S.

Carr), in three notebooks, between the years. This book is an absolute jewel and personifies mathematical beauty. I would recommend this book for anybody who has some experience in analytic number theory and analysis.

Srinivas Ramanujan Aiyanger was definitely India's greatest mathematician and the greatest all time in terms of pur mathematical by:   Half is a brief, lively biography of Ramanujan, and half is an autobiography.

The bridge between the two is a letter that Mr. Ono’s father, Takashi, a mathematician at Johns Hopkins, received from Ramanujan’s widow in (She had been 10 when they married.) After Ramanujan’s death she had a hard time by: 1. In Ramanujan published the first of his papers in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society.

His genius slowly gained recognition, and in he began a correspondence with the British mathematician Godfrey H. Hardy that led to a special scholarship from the University of Madras and a grant from Trinity College, Cambridge.

This book brings together many letters to, from, and about Ramanujan. The Man Who Knew Infinity is the true story of a friendship between Srinivasa Ramanujan and G.H. Hardy that forever changed mathematics. Ina young unschooled Indian clerk wrote a letter to G H Hardy, begging the pre-eminent English mathematician's opinion on several ideas he had about numbers/5().

The book contains considerable material on mock theta functions and so undoubtedly emanates from the last year of Ramanujan's life. Interesting Fact: Ramanujan's life is depicted in a book published in and a biographical film, both titled "The Man Who Knew Infinity." Early Life and Education Ramanujan was born on Decemin Erode, a city in southern India.

The influence of Ramanujan on number theory is without parallel in mathematics. His papers, problems and letters have spawned a remarkable number of later results by many different mathematicians.
