Srinivasa Ramanujan used to be a mathematician great past comparability who encouraged many nice mathematicians. there's vast literature on hand at the paintings of Ramanujan. yet what's lacking within the literature is an research that will position his arithmetic in context and interpret it by way of smooth advancements. The 12 lectures through Hardy, introduced in 1936, served this goal on the time they got. This e-book provides Ramanujan’s crucial mathematical contributions and offers a casual account of a few of the key advancements that emanated from his paintings within the twentieth and twenty first centuries. It contends that his paintings nonetheless has an influence on many various fields of mathematical study. This booklet examines a few of these subject matters within the panorama of 21st-century arithmetic. those essays, in accordance with the lectures given via the authors concentrate on a subset of Ramanujan’s major papers and convey how those papers formed the process glossy arithmetic.
