Srinivasa Ramanujan
* Srinivasa Ramanujan was born 22 of December 1887 and died 26 of April 1920.he was a well know man for what he accomplish, in life as a mathematician and many more things like, analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions. he’s nationality was from Indian , he’s residence was Kumbakonam, Tamil have the access to the larger mathematical community ,it was located in Europe at the time, there for he had to work on he’s own. Ramanujan began he’s mathematical research in isolation. In results he began to sometimes rediscovered known theorems in addition to producing new work. Ramanujan was a natural genius by the English mathematician G.H. Hardy he unforchantly died. * Ramanujan was born in erode in a very poor family from Hindu Brahmin, he’s mathematics began at the age of 10. He’s natural ability stared to show so there for they was giving him books on advanced trigonometry written by S.L., he achieve by the age of 12 he also discovered theorems of his own as well he re-discovered Euler’s identity independently. He was also showing unusual mathematical skills at school. Ramanujan was winning accolades and awards in school at the age of 17 he had conducted his own mathematical research on Bernoulli and the Euler-Mascheroni constants. * In ramanujan short life he received a scholarship to study at Government college in kumbakonam, but he lost it when he filed his non –mathematical coursework. He want to another college to pursue independent mathematical research. He was working as a clerk in a General’s office .in 1912 to 1913 he sent samples of his theorems to three academics at University of Cambridge .G.H. they recognizing the he was a very smart man and he’s brilliance of his work, they invited him to visit and work with him at Cambridge.
