Messenger Throughout the history of mathematics, there has been no one remotely like Srinivasa Ramanujan. As the years pass, I admire more and more the astonishing body of work Ramanujan produced in India before he made contact with any top mathematicians. Not because the results he got at the time changed the face of mathematics, far from it, but because, working by himself, he fearlessly attacked many important and some not so important problems in analysis and, especially, number theory — simply for the love of mathematics.
Ramanujan, Srinivasa Indian mathematician who was self-taught and had an uncanny mathematical manipulative ability.
However, he continued to pursue his own mathematics, and sent letters to three mathematicians in England which arrived in January of containing some of his results. While two of the three returned the letters unopened, G. Because of his lack of formal training, Ramanujan sometimes did not differentiate between formal proof and apparent truth based on intuitive or numerical evidence.
Although his intuition and computational ability allowed him to determine and state highly original and unconventional results which continued to defy formal proof until recently BerndtRamanujan did occasionally state incorrect results.
Ramanujan had an intimate familiarity with numbers, and excelled especially in number theory and modular function theory.
His familiarity with numbers were demonstrated by the following incident. During an illness in England, Hardy visited Ramanujan in the hospital.
When Hardy remarked that he had taken taxi numbera singularly unexceptional number, Ramanujan immediately responded that this number was actually quite remarkable: Ramanujan was sent home to recuperate inbut tragically died the next year at the very young age of Ramanujan published some of his results in journals, and many are beautiful indeed.View the profiles of people named Sirinivasa Ramanujan.

Srinivasa Ramanujan was one of India's greatest mathematical geniuses. He made substantial contributions to the analytical theory of numbers and worked on elliptic functions, continued fractions, and infinite series.
Ramanujan was born in his grandmother's house in Erode, a small village about Mar 25, · What got me going on today’s ruminations was that on the Colombo-Bangkok leg of my journey to Hong Kong two weeks ago I watched The Man Who Knew Infinity, an enjoyable film about the Cambridge days of Sirinivasa Ramanujan, a poor Madras Tamil Brahmin now recognised as a mathematical genius.
Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar (December 22, – April 26, ) was an Indian mathematician. He is considered to be one of the most talented mathematicians in recent history.
He had no formal training in mathematics.
However, he has made a large contribution to number theory, infinite series and continued fractions. Talk:Arbitrary-precision arithmetic Jump to such n + 1 would also be magical by association.
Amongst my favourites are , , , and , all appearing in Sirinivasa Ramanujan's astounding formula for 1/pi. but the implementation was earlier; arbitrary precision arithmetic was needed for Macsyma in the late s).
