Who was Srinivasa Ramanujan?
In the year 1887, Srinivasa Ramanujan was born in the Tamil Nadu city of Erode. One of his coworkers at the Madras Port Trust identified his interest in mathematics. Ramanujan later went to Cambridge University to study mathematics.
Ramanujan earned his diploma in 1916. He was selected to join the London Mathematical Society the following year. In 1918, because of his contributions to the theory of numbers and elliptic functions, he was elected a fellow of the prestigious Royal Society. He was also elected as the first Indian Fellow of Trinity College. The mathematical prodigy, however, lived a brief life. 32 was the age of his passing.
Ramanujan went back to India in 1919. He passed away on April 26 of the following year as a result of his failing health. Just 32 years old, he was. His life and rise to fame are portrayed in Robert Kanigel’s biography, “The Man Who Knew Infinity.”
In a movie with the same name that was released in 2015, Ramanujan was portrayed by British-Indian actor Dev Patel. Ramanujan’s early years in India, his time in Britain, and his path to becoming the great mathematician were all explored in the movie.
