VCU Mathematics Colloquium

The Man Who Knew Infinity:
the Movie, the Man, and the Mathematics

Prof George Andrews
Penn State University

Friday, April 28
3:00 – 3:50
TBA

In the spring of 2016, the motion picture, The Man Who Knew Infinity, was released. It is now available on DVD. The movie tells the life story of the Indian genius, Ramanujan. In this talk, I hope to start with the trailer from the movie. Then I shall provide some discussion of Ramanujan’s life. Finally I hope to provide a glimpse of his mathematics from the celebrated Lost Notebook.
