Life and work of the mathemagician Srinivasa Ramanujan
The Life of Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887 - 1920), the renowned Indian Mathematician, is presented, in this the first of a series of lectures, delivered at the Indian Institute for Advanced Study, Shimla.
The mathematical creativity of Ramanujan FRS (1887–1920)
The occasion of the centenary of his death provides a poignant opportunity to reflect on the mathematical creativity of Ramanujan, on the cultural and social milieu in which he grew up, and on the
Computation of three theorems of Srinivasa Ramanujan associated with definite integrals connected with Gauss sums
In this paper, we have analysed numerically and graphically the three doubtful theorems of Srinivasa Ramanujan without giving any analytical proofs [Mess.Math., XLIV, pp. 75-86, 1915; p.75, eqns(3
On Entry II.16.12: A continued fraction of Ramanujan
We study a continued fraction due to Ramanujan, that he recorded as Entry 12 in Chapter 16 of his second notebook. It is presented in Part III of Berndt’s volumes on Ramanujan’s notebooks. We give
Notes on the Riemann Hypothesis
These notes were written from a series of lectures given in March 2010 at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid and then in Barcelona for the centennial anniversary of the Spanish Mathematical
Generalization of a Ramanujan Identity
This work would like to give a possible answer to Berndt's question whether Ramanujan’s identity is an isolated result, or if there are other identities of this type.
Ramanujan-type formulae for 1/pi: a second wind?
In 1914 S. Ramanujan recorded a list of 17 series for 1=…. We survey the methods of proofs of Ramanujan’s formulae and indicate recently discovered generalisations, some of which are not yet proven.
