A Mathematician’s Apology

No discovery of mine has made, or is likely to make, directly or indirectly, for good or ill, the least difference to the amenity of the world. It helps me go back to looking things in the eye. I may be neglecting avenues for achievement that are better suited to me. How do you really feel? As Hardy pointed out himself, criticisms are work of second-rate mind. Ramanujan was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree by research this degree was later renamed PhD in March for his work on highly composite numbers, the first part of which was published as a paper in the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society.

Godfrey Harold Hardy

When a politician savunmsa that a news story is fake, it is because he has some underlying interest he wants to promote, some hidden aesthetic, possibly Power, possibly wealth, possibly reputation.

GH has a real inferiority complex with respect to his love, mathematics, and his writing ability about it.


By definition, There are already enough people to do that!! It holds itself apart from criticism of any kind from those outside the circle which embraces it.

In matematikininn, Ramanujan published the first of his papers in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society. Snow points out that Hardy’s capacity for dissimulation “was always minimial.

Amusing, even if it was as sad as the introduction suggested. From the perfection that was Prof. The Sloan Film Program encourages and influences the next generation of filmmakers to tackle science and technology plots, themes, and characters in films.

I was ridiculously relieved when he used the word “women” once in the last few pages of the books, which backhandedly described why he felt men were more valuable to society than women. May 13, still added it. The aesthetics adhered to by the professions – law, medicine, science – for example are distinctly different and incommensurate; but they are not arbitrary.

LoveLogMovie LoveLogged savunms 50 7: He immediately comes across as arrogant, rude, forceful, snobbish, opinionated, and gruff. A Mathematician’s Apology is the famous essay by British mathematician G. During his short life, Ramanujan independently compiled nearly 3, results mostly identities and equations. There is nowadays a great scuffle to get some manner of emotional fix upon an author one is reading.

He called their collaboration “the one romantic incident in my life. Not too much, I hope. Addressed to people men already in the know- This is particularly baffling as he makes it a point to say several times that the book was written for laypersons matematikkininand goes to some matematikininn to explain some math in easy terms.


Many were completely novel; his original and highly unconventional results, such as the Ramanujan prime, the Ramanujan theta function, partition formulae and mock theta functions, have opened entire new areas of work and inspired a vast amount of further research.

Conosco la storia di Srinivasa Ramanujanma ancora non capisco come sia possibile. Ramanujan initially developed his own mathematical research in isolation; it was quickly recognized by Indian mathematicians. The paper was more than 50 pages and proved various properties of such numbers.

I was confronted with a fleeting, tricksome nature even in mathematical truth, which had till then been sacrosanct and taken for granted.

View all 7 comments. Read it at least once, if just to understand how not to write about your work for laypeople.

He hung his entire self-worth on his sense of mathematical accomplishment, and as his powers faded, matematiinin did his ability to experience joy. He died at a young age of 32 in London on 26 April
