### Srinivasa Ramanujan Overview

Srinivasa Ramanujan is remembered for his unique mathematical brilliance, which he had largely developed by himself. In 1920 he died at age 32, generally unknown to the world at large but recognized by mathematicians as a phenomenal genius, without peer since Leonhard Euler (1707–83) and Carl Jacobi (1804–51).

An intuitive mathematical genius, Ramanujan’s discoveries have influenced several areas of mathematics, but he is probably most famous for his contributions to number theory and infinite series, among them fascinating formulas ( pdf ) that can be used to calculate digits of pi in unusual ways.

**Short Notes about Srinivasa Ramanujan**

Srinivasa Ramanujan was a well-known Indian Mathematician who was born on 22nd December 1887 during the British rule. He was born in a poor Indian village, Erode belonging to a Tamil family. His father’s name was Kuppuswamy Srinivas Aiyangar who worked as a clerk in a saree shop, and his mother was a religious housewife. They lived in Erode only for a year and then moved to Kumbakonam.

In this small town, Ramanujan attended many primary schools and achieved a distinction in his primary education. At the age of thirteen, he focused his attention on the sum of geometric an arithmetic series and in 1902, he created a method to solve quadratic equations and even explored Euler’s Constant. In the same year, he received a scholarship for his outstanding performance in his studies, and therefore he got admission at Kumbakonam’s Government college.

His passion for mathematics grew more robust, and hence he excelled in maths but failed in other subjects. The failure caused him depression, and he fled to Vizagapatnam without telling his parents. One year later, he returned to study and pass at First Art’s examination but again failed in all and passed in maths. Ramanujan got married to his old distant relative Janaki Ammal.

Furthermore, he published his first paper based on Bernoulli numbers in Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society and received recognition and achievement. His hard work got paid off, and he was appointed as a clerk at Madras Port Trust. At this time, he became famous throughout Madras and caught the attention of C.L.T Griffith who helped Ramanujan. Later, Ramanujan graduated from London and held a degree of Science for research on highly composite numbers.

However, his health deteriorated and was diagnosed with Tuberculosis. He passed away on 26th April 1920. One of his famous quotes, “An equation means nothing to me unless it expresses a thought of God.” Still lingers in our memories and thoughts.
