It presents a unique comparative study of Ramanujan's spectacular discoveries and remarkable life with the monumental contributions of various mathematical luminaries, some of whom, like Ramanujan, overcame great difficulties in life. Also, among the articles are reviews of three important books on Ramanujan's mathematics and life. In addition, some aspects of Ramanujan's contributions, such as his remarkable formulae for the number [pi], his pathbreaking work in the theory of partitions, and his fundamental observations on quadratic forms, are discussed. Finally, the book describes various current efforts to ensure that the legacy of Ramanujan will be preserved and continue to thrive in the future. Thus the book is an enlightening study of Ramanujan as a mathematician and a human being.--10aRamanujan Aiyangar, Srinivasa,d1887-1920.17aRamanujan Aiyangar, Srinivasa,d1887-1920.2fast 0aMathematicianszIndiaxHistory. 0aMathematicianszIndiavBiography. 7aMathematicians.2fast 7aIndia.2fast 7aBiography.2fast 7aHistory.2fast
