This book introduces Ramanujan's mathematics and compares his work with other great mathematicians. It examines such contributions as his formulae for pi, his groundbreaking work in the theory of partitions, and his fundamental observations on quadratic forms.
Krishnaswami Alladi is professor of mathematics at the University of Florida, where he was the department chairman during 1998-2008. He received his PhD from the University of California in 1978. His research area is number theory, where he has made notable contributions. In 1987, during the Ramanujan Centennial in India, he got the inspiration to launch The Ramanujan Journal (now published by Springer), devoted to all areas of research influenced by Ramanujan. He annually writes articles about Ramanujan and his place in the world of mathematics, being published in several national dailies. He is presently editor-in-chief of The Ramanujan Journal, editor of the book series Developments in Mathematics (Springer), and associated editor of Notices of the American Mathematical Society.
