A Page of Ramanujan’s Mathematical Workings
Srinivasa Ramanujan, who was born in the city of Erode, in India in 1887. His mathematical ability was apparent from an early age and his work came to the attention of Professor G. H. Hardy at Trinity.
Ramanujan arrived in Cambridge in the spring of 1914 and was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree by research (now known as a PhD) in 1916. In May 1918 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and in October 1918 was the first Indian to be appointed as a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge.
