Srinivasa ramanujan (father of mathematics in India) inventions & discoveries, contribution to mathematics

Srinivasa Ramanujan is perhaps the greatest mathematician from India and counted among the top contributors to the subject of mathematics also called as father of mathematics in India. National mathematics day (december22) is celebrated to commemorate his birthday.

Revered by maths for decades, his works are still an inspiration for young aspirants in the field that's the reason he is called as father of mathematics. He is one of the important person in top 10 indian inventions and discoveries.

srinivasa ramanujan inventions and discoveries

He invented lots of theorems and derivations the most important invention in mathematics are Hardy-Ramanujan number, the Ramanujan Conjecture, Ramanujan prime, Ramanujan-Soldner constant, Ramanujan theta function, Ramanujan's sum, Rogers-Ramanujan identities, Ramanujan's master theorem, divergent series.

He invented over 400 original theorems by himself. His works have earned him a great honour and often counted among the famous mathematicians like Gauss, Euler and Jacobi. Srinivasa Ramanujan demonstrated his mathematical genius even as a 10 year old.

His memory for mathematical formulas and constants seems to have been boundless: he amazed classmates with his ability to recite the values of irrational numbers like π, e, and √2 to as many decimal places as they asked for.

Srinivasa ramanujan maths contribution, discoveries and inventions

srinivasa ramanujan contribution to mathematics

srinivasa ramanujan contributions to the analytical theory of numbers, elliptic functions, continued fractions and infinity. In 1900 ramanujan work on his own on mathematics summing geometric and arithmetic series. Ramanujan invented nearly 120 theorems on imply divisibility properties of the partition function.

Euler’s constant

By 1904 Ramanujam and Euler researching about the Euler's Constant. Ramanujan investigated the series (1/n) and calculated Euler’s constant to 15 decimal places.

Partition of whole numbers

He motivated by the Partition of whole numbers and developed a formula for the partition of any number, which can be made to yield the required result by a series of successive approximation for Example 3=3+0=1+2=1+1+1.

Ramanujan number

1729 is called as a ramanujan number. It is the smaller number which can be expressed as the sum of two cubes in two different ways- 1729 = 13 + 123 = 93 + 103.
