Throughout the years 1903-1914, Ramanujan labored in nearly whole isolation in India. in this time, he recorded so much of his mathematical discoveries with no proofs in notebooks. even supposing lots of his effects have been already present in the literature, so much weren't. virtually a decade after Ramanujan's demise in 1920, G.
