National Mathematics Day 2020

Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth celebrates National Mathematics Day 2020

22 December is celebrated as National Mathematics Day to commemorate the birth anniversary of Srinivasa Ramanujan, one of the greatest Mathematical geniuses. Ramanujan was born on 22 December 1887, in Erode, Tamil Nadu.

Though with barely any formal training in pure mathematics, he made substantial contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions, including solutions to mathematical problems which were then considered unsolvable

His original and highly unconventional works such as the Ramanujan prime, the Ramanujan theta function, partition formulae, theories of divergent series and mock theta functions, have opened entire new areas of work and inspired a vast amount of further research over the years. This natural genius, has left behind 4000 original theorems, despite his lack of formal education and a short life-span (Died: 26 April 1920)
