Ramanujan's notebooks by Srinivasa Ramanujan Aiyangar( Book )

31 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the time period between 1903 and 1914, Ramanujan worked in almost complete isolation in India. Throughout these years, he recorded his mathematical results without proofs in notebooks. Upon Ramanujan's death in 1920, G.H. Hardy strongly urged that Ramanujan's notebooks be published and edited. The English mathematicians G.N. Watson and B.M. Wilson began this task in 1929, but although they devoted nearly ten years to the project, the work was never completed. In 1957, the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Bombay published a photostat edition of the notebooks, but no editing was undertaken. In 1977, Berndt began the tasks of editing Ramanujan's notebooks. Proofs are provided to theorems not yet proven in previous literature, and many results are so startling and different that there are no results akin to them in the literature

Number theory in the spirit of Ramanujan by Bruce C Berndt( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The subjects examined in this book have a rich history dating back to Euler and Jacobi, and they continue to be focal points of contemporary mathematical research. Therefore, at the end of each of the seven chapters, Bruce Berndt discusses the results established in the chapter and places them in both historical and contemporary contexts. The book is suitable for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students interested in number theory."--Jacket
Ramanujan's lost notebook by George E Andrews( Book )

34 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the second of approximately four volumes that the authors plan to write on Ramanujan's lost notebook, which is broadly interpreted to include all material published in The Lost Notebook and Other Unpublished Papers in 1988. The primary topics addressed in the authors' second volume on the lost notebook are q-series, Eisenstein series, and theta functions. Most of the entries on q-series are located in the heart of the original lost notebook, while the entries on Eisenstein series are either scattered in the lost notebook or are found in letters that Ramanujan wrote to G.H. Hardy from nursing homes. About Ramanujan's Lost Notebook, Volume I: "Andrews and Berndt are to be congratulated on the job they are doing. This is the first step...on the way to an understanding of the work of the genius Ramanujan. It should act as an inspiration to future generations of mathematicians to tackle a job that will never be complete." - Gazette of the Australian Mathematical Society "...the results are organized topically with cross-references to the identities as they appear in the original Ramanujan manuscript. Particularly helpful are the extensive references, indicating where in the literature these results have been proven or independently discovered as well as where and how they have been used." - Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society "The mathematics community owes a huge debt of gratitude to Andrews and Berndt for undertaking the monumental task of producing a coherent presentation along with complete proofs of the chaotically written mathematical thoughts of Ramanujan during the last year of his life. Some 85 years after his death, beautiful "new" and useful results of Ramanujan continue to be brought to light." - Mathematical Reviews

Analytic number theory : proceedings of a conference in honor of Paul T. Bateman by Bruce C Berndt( Book )

15 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 25-27, 1989, over a hundred mathematicians, including eleven from abroad, gathered at the University of Illinois Conference Center at Allerton Park for a major conference on analytic number theory. The occa℗Ư sion marked the seventieth birthday and impending (official) retirement of Paul T. Bateman, a prominent number theorist and member of the mathe℗Ư matics faculty at the University of Illinois for almost forty years. For fifteen of these years, he served as head of the mathematics department. The conference featured a total of fifty-four talks, including ten in℗Ư vited lectures by H. Delange, P. Erdos, H. Iwaniec, M. Knopp, M. Mendes France, H.L. Montgomery, C. Pomerance, W. Schmidt, H. Stark, and R.C. Vaughan. This volume represents the contents of thirty of these talks as well as two further contributions. The papers span a wide range of topics in number theory, with a majority in analytic number theory

Analytic number theory : proceedings of a conference in honor of Heini Halberstam by Bruce C Berndt( Book )

25 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On May 16 -20, 1995, approximately 150 mathematicians gathered at the Conference Center of the University of Illinois at Allerton Park for an Inter national Conference on Analytic Number Theory. The meeting marked the approaching official retirement of Heini Halberstam from the mathematics fac ulty of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Halberstam has been at the University since 1980, for 8 years as head of the Department of Mathematics, and has been a leading researcher and teacher in number theory for over forty years. The program included invited one hour lectures by G. Andrews, J. Bour gain, J.M. Deshouillers, H. Halberstam, D.R. Heath-Brown, H. Iwaniec, H.L. Montgomery, R. Murty, C. Pomerance, and R.C. Vaughan, and almost one hundred other talks of varying lengths. These volumes comprise contributions from most of the principal speakers and from many of the other participants, as well as some papers from mathematicians who were unable to attend. The contents span a broad range of themes from contemporary number theory, with the majority having an analytic flavor
Ramanujan's notebooks by Bruce C Berndt( Book )

20 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Srinivasa Ramanujan is, arguably, the greatest mathematician that India has produced. His story is quite unusual: although he had no formal education inmathematics, he taught himself, and managed to produce many important new results. With the support of the English number theorist G.H. Hardy, Ramanujan received a scholarship to go to England and study mathematics. He died very young, at the age of 32, leaving behind three notebooks containing almost 3000 theorems, virtually all without proof. G.H. Hardy and others strongly urged that notebooks be edited and published, and the result is this series of books. This volume dealswith Chapters 1-9 of Book II; each theorem is either proved, or a reference to a proof is given
Number theory and modular forms : papers in memory of Robert A. Rankin by Robert A Rankin( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert A. Rankin, one of the world's foremost authorities on modular forms and a founding editor of The Ramanujan Journal, died on January 27, 2001, at the age of 85. Rankin had broad interests and contributed fundamental papers in a wide variety of areas within number theory, geometry, analysis, and algebra. To commemorate Rankin's life and work, the editors have collected together 25 papers by several eminent mathematicians reflecting Rankin's extensive range of interests within number theory. Many of these papers reflect Rankin's primary focus in modular forms. It is the editors' fervent hope that mathematicians will be stimulated by these papers and gain a greater appreciation for Rankin's contributions to mathematics. This volume would be an inspiration to students and researchers in the areas of number theory and modular forms

Ramanujan's lost notebook by George E Andrews( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the spring of 1976, George Andrews of Pennsylvania State University visited the library at Trinity College, Cambridge, to examine the papers of the late G.N. Watson. Among these papers, Andrews discovered a sheaf of 138 pages in the handwriting of Srinivasa Ramanujan. This manuscript was soon designated, "Ramanujan's lost notebook." Its discovery has frequently been deemed the mathematical equivalent of finding Beethoven's tenth symphony. This volume is the fourth of five volumes that the authors plan to write on Ramanujan's lost notebook. In contrast to the first three books on Ramanujan's Lost Notebook, the fourth book does not focus on q-series. Most of the entries examined in this volume fall under the purviews of number theory and classical analysis. Several incomplete manuscripts of Ramanujan published by Narosa with the lost notebook are discussed. Three of the partial manuscripts are on diophantine approximation, and others are in classical Fourier analysis and prime number theory. Most of the entries in number theory fall under the umbrella of classical analytic number theory. Perhaps the most intriguing entries are connected with the classical, unsolved circle and divisor problems."--Publisher's description
Hecke's Theory of Modular Forms and Dirichlet Series (2nd Printing and Revisions) by Bruce C Berndt( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1938, at the Institute for Advanced Study, E Hecke gave a series of lectures on his theory of correspondence between modular forms and Dirichlet series. Since then, the Hecke correspondence has remained an active feature of number theory and, indeed, it is more important today than it was in 1936 when Hecke published his original papers. This book is an amplified and up-to-date version of the former author's lectures at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, based on Hecke's notes. Providing many details omitted from Hecke's notes, it includes various new and important developments
