Srinavasa Iyengar Ramanujan, popularly known as S. Ramanujan, was amongst the most renowned and respected mathematicians in India. He is credited with making several numerous significant contributions to various fields of mathematics. This great mathematician was a self-taught learner and had no formal education in pure mathematics. He was born in a small town of Tamil Nadu. He struggled with poverty during his childhood days. However he was talented in mathematics. He had made astonishing contributions to number theory, continued fractions, mathematical analysis and infinite series. Ramanujan is generally considered as one of the soaring geniuses in mathematics.

He was awarded a scholarship. However, after school, Ramanujans total concentration was focussed on mathematics. The result was that his formal education did not continue for long. He first failed in Kumbakonams Government College. He tried once again in Madras from Pachaiyappas College but he failed again. While at school he came across a book entitled A Synopsis of Elementary Results in Pure and Applied Mathematics by George Shoobridge Carr. The title of the book does not reflect its contents. It was a c

Srinivasa Ramanujan was an Indian mathematician and autodidact who, with almost no formal training in pure mathematics, made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series and continued fractions. Ramanujan was said by the English mathematician G.H. Hardy to be in the same league as mathematicians like Euler and Gauss in terms of natural genius.
