|Title:||Ruminations on Pages 335 and 336 in Ramanujan's Lost Notebook|
|Speaker:||Dr. Bruce Berndt, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign|
|Pages 335 and 336 contain a total of four claims, two of which
are incorrect. Both the correct and the incorrect "identities" have
generated considerable research, in particular, with efforts made to find
correct versions of the false formulas. At least three of the claims are
related to classical unsolved problems in analytic number theory, the
circle problem, the divisor problem, and the generalized divisor problem.
In efforts to prove, extend, and correct Ramanujan's claims, we have
proved several new theorems. The speaker's research has been conducted
with Atul Dixit, Sun Kim, Arindam Roy, and Alexandru Zaharescu.|
