Ramanujan: His life and his mathematics

The lecture is about the famous autodidact Ramanujan (1887-1920),
whose results do not fall behind those of Euler and Gauss.
Ramanujan's story ends tragically at the young age of 32. After his
death Ramanujan's influence increased, and he saw important developments in
Mathematics ahead. The lecture will mainly focus on his results in
range of module shapes, mock module shapes and q-rows described.
