Ramajuan Math

  1. Nov 18, 2013 #1
    So, recently i found out that Ramajuan's math is highly applicable and usable in modern physics(things like string theory and stuff) so i decided to start learning more about his work and i stumbled on some questions.
    1.What kind of math background do i need before diving into Ramajuan's work?
    2.What books to you recommend me? I saw that there are very few book about his work, help me chose between

    The Collected Essays of A.K.Ramanujan (Paperback) New by A. K. Ramanujan
    Collected Papers of Srinivasa Ramanujan (Hardback)

    Thank you!

    Well AK Ramanujan was an Indian poet, scholar and author, a philologist, folklorist, translator and playwright so I think that rules out the first book.

    The wiki article has some references that you could check out to learn more about his works:
