“Infinite Dreams: The Story and Childhood Games of the Mathematical Genius Ramanujan”
Friday, August 14 at 6:30 pm ET
When author Amy Alznauer was only five years old, her father made an astounding discovery. In a box of dusty papers in Cambridge Library, he found the Lost Notebook of the mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan. Ramanujan was one of the greatest mathematicians the world has ever known, and his romantic story is sure to inspire listeners of all ages. Alznauer, who also teaches mathematics at Northwestern University, will take participants inside some of the puzzles that enchanted Ramanujan’s young mind. Come for an evening of mathematical stories, magic squares, geometric kolam drawing, and Goats & Tigers, the game of strategy Ramanujan played as a boy.
