Basic Information about Ramanujan Born: 22 December 1887 in Erode, British India Died : 26 April 1920 in Chetput,British India because of hepatic amoebiasis(a parasitic infection of the liver) His mother was a housewife and his father worked as a clerk in a sari shop He could not spent a stable childhood because of his poor family and their life standarts About his talent,G.H. Hardy, who was known a big mathematician and one of Ramanujan’s academic advisors with J.E. Littlewood, said only a few giant mathematicians like Euler,Gauss,Newton had the same talent which Ramanujan had.

PowerPoint Presentation:

His Early Life By age 12,he mastered an advanced trigonometry book written by S.L. Loney by himself After his graduation from high school,he could not get a degree from both colleges he entered at different times(Government College,Pachaiyappa’s College) due to his unwillingness about subjects except mathematics and he could not enter any university He has become seriously ill from time to time and they took so much time to be recovered.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Adulthood He was married with a nine year old girl named Janaki Annal when he was 22 but he did not live with his wife till she was 12. Despite the fact that he was not educated well he was known to the university mathematicians by his works and growing fame in Madras,where he had his second college experience in. Ramanujan has been publishing his works with the help of people who admired his talent in Journal of Indian Mathematical Society He got a temporary job in Madras Accountant General’s office,after that he was accepted as a clerk in Chief Accountant of the Madras Port Trust. He did easily what he was given and he spent his spare time with mathematical research,which his boss encouraged him about. Since he has showed his supernatural talent by himself,again people around him tried to connect with big English matematicians about Ramanujan.G.H. Hardy thought at first it could be fraud because most of Ramanujan’s works were impossible to believe.But eventually,they were convinced and interested in his talent.

PowerPoint Presentation:

He was invited England to improve his works by G.H. Hardy and J.E. Littlewood,who were two of big mathematicans at this time. Hardy and Ramanujan had two opposite personalities.As Hardy was an atheist and believes mathematical proof and analysis,Ramanujan was a deeply religious guy and he believed in his trustworthy intuition.Hardy had hard times on his education without giving any damage on his self confidence and his values. He was elected to the London Mathematical Society and he became a Fellow of the Royal Society. Life in England

PowerPoint Presentation:

He had his entire life with health problems but his health has been worse in England due to stress,lack of vegetarian food and being far away from home. Ramanujan returned India in 1919 and after a short while he died in India despite medical treatment. About him.. He was a religious man.He often said, “ An equation for me has no meaning, unless it represents a thought of God .” People said that he also had an obsession about vegetarian food. Hardy and Littlewood had so many troubles while they have been educating him.Once Littlewood said about it, “ it was extremely difficult because every time some matter, which it was thought that Ramanujan needed to know, was mentioned, Ramanujan's response was an avalanche of original ideas which made it almost impossible for Littlewood to persist in his original intention. ” Back to India

PowerPoint Presentation:

Ramanujan has left a number of theorems and his notebooks which have still been being worked on. Ramanujan found the mistery in the number,1729,while he was in his bed when he was sick. Hardy was asked about 1729 what he thought about it and he said it has nothing interesting.Then Ramanujan stated that 1729 is the smallest number which could be represented as in two different ways as a sum of twu cubes. After that,1729 have been called “Ramanujan-Hardy number”. According to the big mathematicians and specialists lived in that time,Ramanujan’s talent was reminded them Gauss,Jacobi,Euler. In memoriam of Ramanujan,books have been written and movies were made since he died.An example could be the movie named The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan based on the book .
