Title: Number Theory behind Series for 1/π
Time: 2011-07-14 (Thu.)  15:00 - 16:00
Place: Auditorium, 6 Floor, Institute of Mathematics (NTU Campus)
Abstract: One of the main contributions of Ramanujan is that he recorded 17 mysterious hypergeometric series for 1/πin 1914 which are related to elliptic integrals and modular forms and were not all proved until 1987. In this talk we will introduce the speaker's over 100 conjectural series for 1/πdiscovered in 2011 and explain number theory behind them.
