The Man Who Knew Infinity: the Movie, the Man, and the Mathematics
Abstract: In the spring of 2016, the motion picture, The Man Who Knew Infinity, was released. It is now available on DVD. The movie tells the life story of the Indian genius, Ramanujan. In this talk, I hope to start with the trailer from the movie. Then I shall provide a brief discussion of Ramanujan's life with a glimpse of the mathematics contained in his celebrated Lost Notebook (of which Bruce Berndt and I have just concluded preparing the fifth and final volume explicating the many assertion therein). The bulk of the talk will consider the path from the Rogers-Ramanujan identities to current open problems and how computer algebra assists in their study.
