Srinivasa Ramanujan

Srinivasa Ramanujan life was born on 22nd December 1887 at Erode,Tamil Nadu. His fascination towards Mathematics began at the age of 13 without any formal education. He mastered advanced Trigonometry and found some advanced theorems at this stage. When he was 14, he acquired knowledge in Sine and Cosine which was predicted by Euler before. He conducted research on Bernoulli numbers and Euler Mascheroni constant at the age of 17.

His passion towards Maths was so great that he engaged in lot of mathematical investigations. In 1911 he began publishing his new found theories.

In 1913 Ramanujan wrote to G.H Hardy, to seek help for his new findings on 'Orders of Infinity'. Hardy was surprised over the intelligence of Ramanujan's New discovery on western mathematics. So he was offered to work in collaboration with Hardy at the university of Cambridge.

Once when Ramanujan tried presenting his paper to great British Mathematician, M.J.M.Hills. He insulted Ramanujan as his paper was riddled with Holes. He literally meant Ramanujan was lacking in basic educational background. But his remarkable collaboration with Hardy ended to prove some important results in number theory, infinite series and continued fractions. As a result, he become a member of royal society and Trinity college at Cambridge.

The tribute for the Legendary mathematician was acknowledged on his Birthday, as State IT Day by the Tamil people. His seventy fifth anniversary was commemorated with the release of stamp picturing Ramanujan for his achievements in the field of 'Number Theory' by the government of India in 1962.

In his short span of life he had introduced more than 3900 results in various theorems and Mathematical Identities. All his works was still inspired by vast amount of people for further research. His 125th Birth anniversary was declared as National Mathematician Day.
