National Mathematics day – Remembering – Srinivasa Ramanujan
Today we are celebrating the national unity day remembering of great mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. Just want to remember him so short article 🙂
Every year, December 22 is celebrated as National Mathematics Day in India in honor of mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920).
Born – 22 December 1887, Erode, a small village about 400 km southwest of Chennai
Died – 26 April 1920 Kumbakonam

On 16 March 1916 Ramanujan graduated from Cambridge with a Bachelor of Arts by Research (the degree was called a Ph.D. from 1920). He had been allowed to enroll in June 1914 despite not having the proper qualifications.
How did Ramanujan learn mathematics?
Ramanujan didn’t have any formal training. He was a curious child and discovered his love for numbers and equations at an early age. He used to discuss mathematics with college students and whenever he got any new book he used to learn it all by himself.
Few more details :
- Ramanujan shows how to solve cubic equations
- Ramanujan began to pose problems and solve problems in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society.
- He developed relations between elliptic modular equations in 1910.
- After publication of a brilliant research paper on Bernoulli numbers in 1911 in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society he gained recognition for his work
