I’ve just received a book named Development of Elliptic Functions According to Ramanujan

by K Venkatachaliengar (deceased) , edited by: ShaunCooper , Shaun Cooper

This unique book provides an innovative and efficient approach to elliptic functions, based on the ideas of the great Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. The original 1988 monograph of K Venkatachaliengar has been completely revised. Many details, omitted from the original version, have been included, and the book has been made comprehensive by notes at the end of each chapter.

The book is for graduate students and researchers in Number Theory and Classical Analysis, as well for scholars and aficionados of Ramanujan’s work. It can be read by anyone with some undergraduate knowledge of real and complex analysis.

## Contents:

- The Basic Identity
- The Differential Equations of \(P\), \(Q\) and \(R\)
- The Jordan-Kronecker Function
- The Weierstrassian Invariants
- The Weierstrassian Invariants, II
- Development of Elliptic Functions
- The Modular Function \(\lambda\)

**Readership**: Graduate students and researchers in Number Theory and Classical Analysis, as well as scholars and aficionados of Ramanujan’s work.

## Review

It is obvious that every arithmetician should want to own a copy of this book, and every modular former should put it on his ‘to be handled-with-loving-care-shelf.’ Reader of Venkatachaliengar’s fine, fine book should be willing to enter into that part of the mathematical world where Euler, Jacobi, and Ramanujan live: beautiful formulas everywhere, innumerable computations with infinite series, and striking manouevres with infinite products.

— MAA Reviews

The author was acquainted with many who knew Ramanujan, and so historical passages offer information not found in standard biographical sources. The author has studied Ramanujan’s papers and notebooks over a period of several decades. His keen insights, beautiful new theorems, and elegant proofs presented in this monograph will enrich readers.
