Ramanujan: his life, the last letter and beyond; Robert Osburn

The Indian genius Srinivasa Ramanujan left the mathematical world with many fascinating and unproven assertions that would challenge the finest researchers through the 20th century. Indeed, work on Ramanujan's mathematics continues today as many of his deepest and most tantalizing writings were only unearthed in 1976 and have yet to be fully explained. In this lecture, we discuss his intriguing life, his famous last letter in 1920 to Cambridge mathematician G. H. Hardy and how his visionary work influences the modern scientific community.
