Synopsis: In 1913, a young, unschooled Indian clerk wrote a letter to G. H. Hardy, begging that pre-eminent English mathematician's opinion on several ideas he had about numbers. Hardy, realizing the letter was the work of a genius, arranged for Srinivasa Ramanujan to come to England. Thus began one of the most remarkable collaborations ever chronicled.

With a passion for rich and evocative detail, Robert Kanigel takes us from the temples and teeming slums of Madras to the courts and chapels of Cambridge University, where the devout Hindu Ramanujan, "the Prince of Intuition," tested his brilliant theories alongside the sophisticated and eccentric Hardy, "the Apostle of Proof." In time, Ramanujan's creative intensity took its toll: he died at the age of thirty-two, but left behind a magical and inspired legacy that today is still being plumbed for its secrets.

About the Author: ROBERT KANIGEL, a professor of science writing at MIT, where he directs the Graduate Program in Science Writing, is a winner of the Brady-Stack Award for science writing. The Man Who Knew Infinity was a finalist for the 1991 Los Angeles Times Book Award in the Science category. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
