The influence of Ramanujan on number theory is without parallel in mathematics. His papers, problems and letters have spawned a remarkable number of later results by many different mathematicians. Here, his 37 published papers, most of his first two and last letters to Hardy, the famous 58 problems submitted to the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society, and the commentary of the original editors (Hardy, Seshu Aiyar and Wilson) are reprinted again, after having been unavailable for some time. In this, the third printing of Ramanujan's collected papers, Bruce Berndt provides an annotated guide to Ramanujan's work and to the mathematics it inspired over the last three-quarters of a century. The historical development of ideas is traced in the commentary and by citations to the copious references. The editor has done the mathematical world a tremendous service that few others would be qualified to do.

Originally published in 1927, this book presents the collected papers of the renowned Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920), with editorial contributions from G. H. Hardy (1877-1947). Detailed notes are incorporated throughout and appendices are also included.

"[The book] is introduced by a pair of notes which are sources of wonderful information about Ramanujan in their own right, both as regards his life and his mathematics. After that it is all about his mathematics: thirty-seven articles on number theory, infinite series, integrals, and combinatorics. It is all stunning, both by virtue of the content of these articles and because of the idiosyncrasy of their author."
