The influence of Ramanujan on number theory is without parallel in
mathematics. His papers, problems, and letters have spawned a remarkable
number of later results by many different mathematicians. Here, his 37
published papers, most of his first two and last letters to Hardy, the
famous 58 problems submitted to the Journal of the Indian Mathematical
Society, and the commentary of the original editors (Hardy, Seshu Aiyar
and Wilson) are reprinted again, after having been unavailable for some
time.

In this printing of Ramanujan's collected papers, Bruce Berndt provides an
annotated guide to Ramanujan's work and to the mathematics it inspired
over the last three-quarters of a century. The historical development of
ideas is traced in the commentary and by citations to the copious
references. The editor has done the mathematical world a tremendous
service that few others would be qualified to do.
