Happy Birthday to Math's Genius Ramanujan - Celebrating National Mathematics Day

Dear All,

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh paid tribute to mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887- 1920), on the occasion of 125th birth anniversary. He announced that his birthday - December 22 - would be a National Mathematics Day.

Srinivasa Ramanujan (22 December 1887 – 26 April 1920) was an Indian mathematician, who made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions. Ramanujan independently compiled nearly 3900 results (mostly identities and equations). His work continues to inspire mathematicians even today! 
Srinivasa Ramanujan, born into a poor Brahmin family at Erode on Dec. 22, 1887, attended school in nearby Kumbakonam. By the time he was 13, he could solve unaided every problem in Loney's Trigonometry, and at 14 he obtained the theorems for the sine and the cosine that had been anticipated by L. Euler.
Ramanujan became so absorbed in mathematics that when he entered the local government college in 1904 with a merit scholarship, he neglected his other subjects and lost the scholarship. Ramanujan married in 1909, and while working as a clerk he continued his mathematical investigations.
In January 1913 Ramanujan sent some of his work to G. H. Hardy, Cayley lecturer in mathematics at Cambridge. Hardy noticed that Ramanujan had rediscovered, and gone far beyond, some of the latest conclusions of Western mathematicians.
In 1914 Ramanujan went to Cambridge. The university experience gave him considerable sophistication, but intuition still played a more important role than argument. In Hardy's opinion, if Ramanujan's gift had been recognized early, he could have become one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. His patience, memory, power of calculation, and intuition made him the greatest formalist of his day.
In 1918 Ramanujan was elected a fellow of the Royal Society and a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge.
However, the story goes that, Ramanujan’s health deteriorated greatly while he was in England, and he eventually had to travel back to India in 1919. He died a year later, when he was only 33 years of age, although his work will be remembered for a long time. He dealt with Riemann series, the elliptic integrals, hyper geometric series, and functional equations of the zeta function. Hardy liked to rank mathematicians on a scale of 1 to 100, and he gave himself 25, Littlewood 30, David Hilbert 80, and Ramanujan 100, which shows just how great Ramanujan was.

2nd National Mathematics Symposium @IIT Delhi

Dear All,
I am delighted to share with you all that I was invited as a resource person to take sessions for teachers and students held at IIT (Delhi) on 20 December 2013.  The 2nd National Mathematics Symposium was organized in lieu of celebrating National Math’s Day, 22nd Dec’2013. This event has been planned to honor all the Math’s teachers for their contribution in the field of Math’s. There were total of around 120 teachers and 60 students from Delhi.

It was really a great learning and sharing experience.

Fourth Intra School Mathematics Olympiad - RESULT

Dear All

The Fourth Intra School Mathematics Olympiad was held in CRPF Public School, Rohini on 8 November 2013.
Hopefully, it was a great learning experience for all. It surely provided an extended platform for all the participating students and it is wished that it is utilized to its fullest.
Here are many young Ramanujan’s and Shakuntala Devi’s in our school who had performed very well in the exam.
Check out the result here:
Congratulations to all the rank and merit holders for their brilliant performance in the  Olympiad.
You may again like to see the question papers and their solutions.
