Ramanujan at 125

Özet (Abstract): Last year, 2012, was the 125th anniversary of Srinivasa
Ramanujan's birth. In his short career, he had a profound impact on much
of the research in number theory that was to follow in the coming
century.  This talk will begin with an account of the discovery of
Ramanujan's Lost Notebook in 1976 which provided a number of surprises.
Writing in 1919-1920, Ramanujan anticipated (and, in fact, had gone beyond)
many results found by others in the last half of the 20th century. I
shall discuss a number of his discoveries related to continued fractions,
partitions, and other number-theoretic topics.  I will conclude with a
couple of stories about associated TV and film projects that arose because
of this discovery.
