Originally published in 1927, this book presents the collected papers of the renowned Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887–1920), with editorial contributions from G. H. Hardy (1877–1947). Detailed notes are incorporated throughout and appendices are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the works of Ramanujan and the history of mathematics.
Reviews & endorsements
'[The book] is introduced by a pair of notes which are sources of wonderful information about Ramanujan in their own right, both as regards his life and his mathematics. After that it is all about his mathematics: thirtyseven articles on number theory, infinite series, integrals, and combinatorics. It is all stunning, both by virtue of the content of these articles and because of the idiosyncrasy of their author.' Michael Berg, MAA Reviews
