Not being good at small talk all Hardy could think to say was that the number of his cab, 1, was uninteresting. Ramanujan replied that quite to the contrary it was the smallest number expressible as a sum of two cubes in two distinct ways: Mathematicians In The Movies There has been a recent spate of books, plays and movies, and TV series about mathematicians and ramanujan notebooks movies physicists: In he returned ramanujan notebooks movies KumbakonamMadras Presidencyand soon thereafter, indied at the age of After his death, his brother Tirunarayanan chronicled Ramanujan's remaining handwritten notes consisting of formulae on singular moduli, hypergeometric series and continued fractions and compiled them.
