Ramanujan was growing up like many other ordinary boys of Kombakonam. His poverty made him to left the college to search a post for sustain in the life. In his work in folklore studies, Ramanujan highlights the inter-textuality of the Indian oral and written literary tradition. Although Ramanujan died long ago,he is always remembered for his supernatural ability in mathematics. Later he joined in Kangayan Primary School in Kumbakonam. Among them he worked with professor G.

When Ramanujan was 5-years old he was admitted to the local primary school in Kombakonam. Colvin Professor in the Departments of , of , and in the at the , and the same year, he received a. I had no mind to smother his genius by an appointment in the lowest rungs of the revenue department. Just as in elementary mathematics you give a meaning to an when n is negative and fractional to confirm to the law which holds when n is a positive integer,similarly the whole of my investigations proceed on giving a meaning to Eularian Second Integral for all values of n. On October 1,Ramanujan was enrolled at the local school. I have not trodden through the conventional regular course which is followed in a university course,but i am striking out a new path for myself. Rao was the district collector of Nellore, and he was surprised by the sheer volume of the work done by the young man.

In 1976, the awarded him the , and in 1983, he was given the Shulman, 1994. He is a young man of quite exceptional capacity in mathematics and especially in work relating to numbers. At this stage he became seriously ill again and underwent an operation in April 1909 after which he took him some considerable time to recover. His papers were published in European journals, and he was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree by research in March 1916 for his work on highly composite numbers. His work opened up entirely new areas in mathematics research that continue to be explored by mathematicians today. But soon Srinivas Ramanujan had to give up his scholarship because he was so preoccupied with mathematics that he performed poorly in other subjects. The letters Ramanujan wrote to in 1913 had contained many fascinating results.

He was very interested in geometry and infinite series. Hardy spoke about the number when he rode a taxicab with 1729 number. Srinivasa Ramanujan Biography Srinivasa Ramanujan, there is no need for introduction about the famous mathematician. Quiet and meditative, Ramanujan was very fond of numerical calculations and had an unusual memory for numbers. In the beginning, he published his work in the Journal the Indian mathematical society. He published works on both classical and modern variants of this literature and argued strongly for giving local, non-standard dialects their due. These contents have stimulated many workers in their respective fields.

One day in the class the teacher gave some problems to the student as a class work. Srinivasa Iyengar, a clerk in a sari shop and his mother Komalatammal was a housewife. He used to receive scholarship for his studies. Requesting to be excused for the trouble I give you,I remain,dear Sir, Yours truly, S. He was thoroughly fascinated by the book and spent months studying it in detail.

Srinivasa Ramanujan facts on timeline Born in India December 26 , 1887 He was born into Tamilian Brahmin family. A follower of his family goddess Mahalakshmi, Ramanujan credited her for his abilities. His election as a fellow of the was confirmed on 2 May 1918, then on 10 October 1918 he was elected a Fellow of Trinity College Cambridge, the fellowship to run for six years. In 1903 he came upon George Shoobridge Carr's Synopsis of Elementary Results in Pure and Applied Mathematics. He continued his mathematical work, however, and at this time he worked on and investigated relations between integrals and series. Ramanujan belonged to a Brahman family, but his father was poor and served as a bookkeeper in the firm of a cloth merchant in Kumbakonam. Hardy,a fellow of Trinity College,Cambridge,England.

Later he developed the concept of Elliptic Functions. Hardy received a letter from his office clerk in India in 1913. Many scholars have been studying the rich amount of theorems and mathematical concepts developed by Ramanujan. His mother sang at local temple. Ramanujan was doing well in Cambridge,but his health began to deteriorate rapidly.

Hill replied in a fairly encouraging way but showed that he had failed to understand Ramanujan's results on divergent series. But there he focused only on Mathematics and neglected other subjects and failed. A long list of prominent mathematicians had supported his nomination to the Royal Society, and Ramanujan regarded this as one of the greatest accomplishments of his life. In 1917 Ramanujan fell ill, possibly with tuberculosis; and the remainder of his stay in England was spent in several sanatoriums. He briefly attended a college in Madras, then returned to Kumbakonam, where he again failed. Finally he had a meeting with deputy collector V.
