Anuncio

Srinivāsa Aiyangār Rāmānujan fue un matemático autodidacta indio que con una mínima educación académica en matemáticas puras, hizo contribuciones extraordinarias al análisis matemático, la teoría de números, las series y las fracciones continuas. Ramanujan desarrolló inicialmente su propia investigación matemática en forma aislada; que fue rápidamente reconocida por los matemáticos indios. Cuando sus habilidades se hicieron evidentes a una comunidad matemática más amplia, centrada en Europa en ese momento, comenzó su famosa colaboración con el matemático británico G. H. Hardy. Redescubrió teoremas conocidos previamente, además de producir numerosos nuevos teoremas.

Durante su corta vida, Ramanujan fue capaz de compilar independiente casi 3.900 resultados . Casi todos sus hallazgos se han demostrado correctos, aunque algunos ya eran previamente conocidos. Logró resultados que eran a la vez originales y muy poco convencionales, como los números primos de Ramanujan y la función theta de Ramanujan, que a su vez han inspirado una gran cantidad de investigaciones.

Frases Srinivasa Ramanujan

„Sir, an equation has no meaning for me unless it expresses a thought of GOD“

— Srinivasa Ramanujan
Context: Sir, an equation has no meaning for me unless it expresses a thought of GOD. Statement to a friend<!-- perhaps Shiyali Ramamrita Ranganathan himself — unable to verify this as yet — online renditions of the quote and this book do not provide sufficient clarity of citation. ~ Kalki -->, quoted in Ramanujan, the Man and the Mathematician (1967) by Shiyali Ramamrita Ranganathan, p. 88 <!-- Asia Publishing House Bombay --> Variant: An equation means nothing to me unless it expresses a thought of God.

„I beg to introduce myself to you as a clerk in the Accounts Department of the Port Trust Office at Madras... I have no University education but I have undergone the ordinary school course. After leaving school I have been employing the spare time at my disposal to work at Mathematics. I have not trodden through the conventional regular course which is followed in a University course, but I am striking out a new path for myself. I have made a special investigation of divergent series in general and the results I get are termed by the local mathematicians as "startling".... Very recently I came across a tract published by you styled Orders of Infinity in page 36 of which I find a statement that no definite expression has been as yet found for the number of prime numbers less than any given number. I have found an expression which very nearly approximates to the real result, the error being negligible. I would request that you go through the enclosed papers. Being poor, if you are convinced that there is anything of value I would like to have my theorems published. I have not given the actual investigations nor the expressons that I get but I have indicated the lines on which I proceed. Being inexperienced I would very highly value any advice you give me. Requesting to be excused for the trouble I give you. I remain, Dear Sir, Yours truly...“
