“I shall never forget the astonishment with which I read the remarkable work … and I learnt for the first time as I read it what mathematics really meant.”
2. Ramanujan : George Carr’s
“A Synopsis of Elementary Results in Pure & Applied Mathematics”
(4,400 results without proofs)
3. Riemann : Legendre’s book
Landau 2-volume “Handbuch der Lehre von Der Verteilung der Primzahlen”
(Handbook of the Theory of the Distribution of Prime Numbers)
5. Atle Selverg (Norway): Ramanujan’s “Collected Papers”
