Speaker: Professor Heng Huat Chan (National University of Singapore and MPIM)

Time: 3:00PM

Date: Wed 30th September 2009

Location: Mathematical Sciences Seminar Room

In this talk, I will first introduce the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. I will then present several results of Ramanujan's mathematics that have close connections with the theory of modular forms.
