Srinivasa Ramanujan, an Indian mathematician, made significant contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions despite little formal training. Initially working in isolation, he sought recognition for his work, leading to a correspondence with G. H. Hardy at the University of Cambridge. Ramanujan's groundbreaking theorems and nearly 3,900 results, many of which were original and unconventional, have had a lasting impact on mathematics. His notebooks continue to inspire research, with new discoveries emerging even decades after his death.
