"This book offers a unique account on the life and works of Srinivasa Ramanujan often hailed as the greatest natural mathematical genius. Sharing valuable insights into the many stages of Ramanujan's life, this book provides glimpses into his prolific research on highly composite numbers, partitions, continued fractions, mock theta functions, arithmetic, and hypergeometric functions which led the author to discover a new summation theorem. It also includes the list of Ramanujan collected papers, letters and other material present at the Wren Library of Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland. This book is a valuable resource for all readers interested in Ramanujan's life, work and indelible contributions to mathematics." - Back Cover
