Contribution of S. Ramanujan is widespread in fields of Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Number theory etc. He has also made some extraordinary contributions to the fields like Hyper-geometric series, Elliptic functions, Prime numbers, Bernoulli`s numbers, Divergent series, Continued fractions, Elliptic Modular equations, Highly Composite numbers, Riemann Zeta functions, Partition of numbers, Mock-Theta functions etc. In reality, apart from a few elementary ones, most of the contributions of S. Ramanujan belong to a higher realm of mathematics that is often referred to as Higher Mathematics. But the most significant contributions are Ramanujan Prime, Ramanujan Theta function, Ramanujan-Soldner constant, Ramanujan`s sum etc.

If he was called the father of mathematics, it was probably by someone who did not understand mathematical history at all - or perhaps of parenthood. It would be extremely strange that if a father was born several thousand years after what he was supposedly the father of! Aristotle and Euclid had already helped mathematics grow a couple of thousand years before Ramanujan was born! This is NOT to minimise his contribution to mathematics, but father he was not.

He made some amazing discoveries in the field of continued fractions. He also did other work in the field of number theory. Ramanujan had some important contributions to the theory of infinite series and analysis also.

Dr. Srinivasa Ramanujan was an Indian mathematician and autodidact who, with almost no formal training in pure mathematics, made substantial contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series and continued fractions.

to commemorate the achievements of indian mathematicians srinivasa ramanujan as national mathematics day on 125th birth anniversary of rananujan

That is the correct spelling of the given name Ramanujan. (mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, 1856-1920)

A. K. Ramanujan died in 1993.

Amita Ramanujan was created in 2005.
