Then the answer came to my mind', Ramanujan replied. Internet URLs are the best. Ramanujan credited his acumen to his family goddess, Namagiri, and looked to her for inspiration in his work. Ramanujan and Hardy's work in this area gave rise to a powerful new method for finding asymptotic formulae called the circle method.

He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society inas one of the youngest Fellows in the history of the Royal Society. Hindered by poverty and ill-health, his highly original work has considerably enriched number theory and, more recently, physics.
Hardy himself created papers exploring material from Ramanujan's work, as did G. Janaki Ammal, moved to Bombay ; in she returned to Madras and settled in Triplicanewhere she supported herself on a pension from Madras University and income from tailoring.
Iyer introduced Ramanujan as an outstanding student who deserved scores higher than the maximum possible marks. On 8 FebruaryHardy wrote Ramanujan a letter expressing his interest in his work, adding that it was "essential that I should see proofs of some of your assertions".

Hardy had once said to him:. Inshe and Ramanujan's mother joined Ramanujan in Madras. His achievements were to be fully understood much later, well after his untimely death in Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
Her decision led to several very heated quarrels with other devout family members. Julian—Gregorian uncertainty CS1 maint: The paper was more than 50 pages and proved various properties of such numbers.
Retrieved 11 January As a by-product, new directions of research were opened up. Ramanujan also published five short notes in the Records of Proceedings at meetings of the London Mathematical Society and six more in the journal of the Indian Mathematical Society.

December 22 The American Mathematical Monthly. The Hungry Years At the beginning ofat the age of 19, with minimal funds and a stomach all too often groaning with hunger, Ramanujan continued on the path he had chosen: His last letters to Hardy, written Januaryshow that he was still continuing to produce new mathematical ideas and theorems.
The next year, he had independently developed and investigated the Bernoulli numbers and had calculated Euler's constant up to 15 decimal places.
Hardy, whose great mathematical findings were beginning to be appreciated from to ramanujaan A stamp picturing Ramanujan was released by the Government of India in — the 75th anniversary of Ramanujan's birth — commemorating his achievements in the field of number theory,  and a new design was issued on 26 Decemberby the India Post.
