[Calculation 16] Ramanujan ‘s 1ψ1 (1-psi-1) Summation Formula

In this post, we will introduce one of the famous formulas discovered by Ramanujan, which is called Ramanujan’s ${}_1\psi_1$ Summation Formula. It was first introduced by Hardy, and he called it as “a remarkable formula with many parameters”. The first … Continue reading

[Calculation 15] Introduction to the Ramanujan Theta Functions

In this post, we introduce the Ramanujan theta functions $f(a,b)$, which generalize the form of the Jacobi theta functions. Here we define the Ramanujan theta function, and introduce some elementary properties. First, we define the Ramanujan theta function as  … Continue reading
