„Throughout the history of mathematics, there has been no one remotely like Srinivasa Ramanujan. Though he had almost no formal training in pure mathematics, he made substantial contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions, including solutions to mathematical problems then considered unsolvable. Ramanujan initially developed his own mathematical research in isolation“ Wikipedia
