The Man Who Knew Infinity #SrinivasaRamanujan was born in 1887 in Erode, Tamil Nadu and became obsessed with mathematics as a teen. Ramanujan was a self taught mathematician. He spent so much time making original discoveries in mathematics that he flunked out of college - twice!

He failed thrice in school exams because he did not like to study anything apart from numbers.

At age 12, despite lacking a formal education, he excelled in trigonometry and discovered many theorems.

Srinivasa Ramanujan ran away from home at age of 14 and enrolled at Pachaiyappa's College, Madras.

By 16, he mastered a book called A Synopsis of Elementary Results in Pure and applied Mathematics by Shoobridge Carr, which held a collection of 5000 theorems!

The world has only now started to admire the genius of a man who, despite having no formal training in pure mathematics, made substantial contributions to mathematics.

The Man Who Knew Infinity, Jayanti of #SrinivasaRamanujan today, one of the greatest mathematicians of modern era, a genius like none other, a true maverick.

The world of mathematics owes a great debt to India , because this is the land from which the basic theories of mathematics have originated. Aryabhatta who contributed the number-place value system and the concept of zero, as well as calculating the area of the triangle.

Bhaskara who came up the concept of the decimal system. Halayudha who provided a clear description of the Pascal’s triangle. And between 1300-1600 AD, we had the Kerala school of Mathematics and Astronomy founded by Madhava of Sangamagrama.

His Jayanti is celebrated as National Mathematics Day.

His Jayanti is celebrated as National Mathematics Day.

His Notebooks are still being analysed more than 100 years after his death. His mentor Prof. G. H. Hardy said: “My personal ratings of contemporary mathematicians on the basis of pure talent,

on a scale from 0 to 100: G. H. Hardy – 25; John Littlewood 30; David Hilbert 80; Srinivasa Ramanujan 100.”

Did you know that math wizard knew how to solve a problem in 100 different ways?

As he worked on his theorems, Ramanujan couldn't use paper as it was quite expensive.

As he worked on his theorems, Ramanujan couldn't use paper as it was quite expensive.

He worked on his derivations on slate, choosing to note down only the important results and summaries in his notebooks. Despite his unemployment and abject poverty, he had filled an entire notebook by the age of 23.

26/04 - the Remembrance Day of one of the brightest minds India gave the world - #SrinivasaRamanujan. Today, however I ended up remembering another man - who was born 4 years after Ramanujan died, but whose life was inextricably entwined with Ramanujan’s. (1/n)

Today is the 133th birthday to the greatest Mathematical minds ever born.

Happy 133th birthday to #SrinivasaRamanujan.

A self taught genius #Ramanujan used to solve one of the highest class problems in #Mathematics.

Ramanujan used to say that Goddess Namagiri tells him about the Mathematical formulas in his dream.

Srinivasa Ramanujan's first famous letter in original format (manuscript except for the 1st page) to Prof G H Hardy dated 16 January 1913. He sent 120 theorems in 10 pages. This is really a treasure.

"An equation for me has no meaning, unless it expresses a thought of God”, Ramanujan credited his mathematical prowess to divinity.

He left us 100 years before but his work continues to amaze the world till today.

Born on 22-Dec-1887 in Erode, Tamil Nadu, India, Ramanujan was a child prodigy who,

👉Exhausted two mathematics graduates at just the age of 11

👉Mastered book on advance trigonometry by S. L. Loney at the age of 13

👉Discovered sophisticated theorems on this own at the age of 13

Ramanujan's brief life has not only kept top mathematicians busy all life, but also has challenged eurocentric enslavement to the delusion that atheism is core to science. On his 100th puṇyatithi / death anniversary, may we remember the mathematician who knew #infinite #bhakthi

Taxicab Numbers, Nested Radicals & Continued Fractions, Partition functions, Ramanujan Primes, Ramanujan Sums, τ Function & Ramanujan's Conjecture were not the only things that stirred the world. His life will stir us within, whether we know math or not #MathBhakth #puṇyatithi

In his 1st humble letter to G.H.Hardy, Ramanujan seeks nothing but to publish. "I would request you to go through the enclosed papers. Being poor, if you are convinced that there is anything of value I would like to have my theorems published" #SrinivasaRamanujan
