Abstract

Ken Ono is the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Mathematics at Emory University. Over the last twenty years he has proved many beautiful theorems, many of which explain and generalize the work of Ramanujan which were hinted at in Ramanujan’s notebooks a hundred years ago. This book, which is largely an autobiography as told to Amir Aczel, is an attempt on Ken’s part to explain, at some level, how it was not only the Mathematics of Ramanujan, but his life’s story which influenced Ken and, to a certain extent, made him what he is today.
