K. Ramachandra

Kanakanahalli Ramachandra (1933-2011) was perhaps the real successor of Srinivas Ramanujan in contemporary Indian mathematics. There would be no exaggeration in saying that without the efforts of Ramachandra, analytical number theory could have been extinct in India back in the mid 1970s. I was fortunate to get the opportunity to learn mathematics from the master himself. ‘On the half line: K. Ramachandra‘ is a short biography on the life and works of K. Ramachandra.

The complete article in PDF format is published in Vol 21, September 2011 issue of the Mathematics Newsletter, Ramanujan Mathematical Society. Click here to read the full article: MNL-Sep11-CRC

    Super just wanted to know about him and this post was exactly what I needed. Please do write more on him. He is the only person, whom I have heard a lot but have never been able to read his biography .

    Thanks alot sir!

    Feel myself honored ( &regret for the ignorance so far), to get to know such a mathematical genius. I strongly feel its the person, whom indian world didn’t respect as much it has to!
