Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920) was an Indian mathematician who made great and original contributions to many mathematical fields, including complex analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions. He was "discovered" by G. Littlewood, two world-class mathematicians at Cambridge, and enjoyed an extremely fruitful period of collaboration with them. Srinivasa Ramanujan FRS (22 December 1887 – 26 April 1920) was an Indian mathematician and autodidact who, with almost no formal training in pure mathematics, made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions.

## Biography

Indian mathematician, one of the outstanding math minds of history who contributed to the theory of number, of partitions and the theory of continued fractions. Free vedic birth chart interpretation.

Educated at the Government College at Kumbakonam, he obtained a scholarship for the University of Madras, but after his marriage in 1909, became a clerk in the Madras Port trust.

The recognition of his genius began when he wrote to G.H. Hardy at Trinity 1/16/1913 and Hardy replied 2/08/1913. His correspondence with Hardy led to another scholarship from Madras and a grant from Trinity, Cambridge, England. He left India by boat 3/17/1913 and arrived in London 4/14/1913 in spite of great difficulties caused by his caste as a Braman. His diet and religious observations were compromised by the great difference in life style to which he had to adapt.

Hardy helped him get into his original work, but the isolation of his life and difficulties in diet caused him great stress. He became ill in 1917, and in January 1918, tried to kill himself by throwing himself in front of a train. Rescued, he struggled on until he was able to return to India in 1919.

Ramanujan's notebooks were published in 1957, and his 'Collected Papers' published in 1927 and 1962.

He died 4/26/1920, Kumbakonam.
