जेमतेम चाळीस वर्षांचं आयुष्य लाभलेले श्रीनिवास रामानुजन म्हणजे एक अजब रसायन

गणिताच्या क्लिष्ट जगात वावरणारा अतिशय सोपा माणूस
#Ramanujan #पुस्तकप्रेमी 👇👇👇
अनेक अडचणींवर मात करत रामानुजन इंग्लंडमधल्या केंब्रिजसारख्या प्रतिष्ठित कॉलेजमध्ये गेले.तिथे गेल्यानंतर त्यांच्या संशोधनाला आणखी धार आली.
त्यांची कारकीर्द बहरत असतानाच आधी महायुद्ध आणि नंतर आजारपणामुळे त्यांच्या प्रगतीला खीळ बसली.

इंग्लंडच्या त्या थंडगार हॉस्पिटलमध्ये, अर्धपोटी आणि २४ तास एकट्याने राहत असताना त्यांनी आत्महत्येचा प्रयत्नही केला, पण सुदैवाने ते वाचले.
इंग्लंडच्या डॉक्टरना रामानुजनच्या आजाराचं नीट निदान झालं नाही, असंही म्हणतात.

Today is the birthday of one of the greatest pure mathematicians & #Ramanujan champion, Prof.G.H. Hardy.
Godfrey Harold Hardy more commonly known as G.H. Hardy was one of the most prominent mathematicians of all time.
1/7
Hardy brought ‘rigor’ to British mathematics which is a gold standard for a mathematical proof. He worked extensively in mathematical analysis and analytical number theory alongside J.E Littlewood. He also worked a lot for the development of the number theory.

2/7
The first and second Hardy-Littlewood conjectures are fine examples of the work G.H. Hardy did to develop the number theory. The Hardy-Weinberg principle (basics of population genetics) is another notable work done by him.

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. ImageImageImageImage
Srinivasa Ramanujan's first letter. Theorems on Prime numbers, Integrals, modular forms, theta functions, continued fractions, Rogers-Ramanujan identities, integral transforms etc. ImageImageImageImage
Prof. Hardy's response: "I had never seen anything in the least like this before. A single look at them is enough to show they could only be written down by a mathematician of the highest class. They must be true because no one would have the imagination to invent them." ImageImage

"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.

A #thread dedicated to mathematics genius Srinivasa Ramanujan🙏 Image
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 Image
👉Received merit certificates/awards in mathematics ability at the age of 14
👉Made a teacher allocation chart for his school assigning 1200 students to 35 teachers
👉At just 15, he already developed his own method to solve the quartic (polynomial of degree 4)

Today is 131st birthday of #Ramanujan, celebrated as #NationalMathematicsDay in India.
This year is also the 100th anniversary of his election as FRS.
131 is a palindromic and permutable prime with 113 and 311.
Can also be stated as the sum of 3 consecutive primes 41 + 43 + 47. Image
#Ramanujan's letter to Hardy is an all-time classic -
"I beg to introduce myself to you as a clerk"
"I have no University education"
"I have not trodden through the conventional ... but I am striking out a new path"
"I have made a special investigation of divergent series" Image
There are ~ 4 photos #Ramanujan according to
