Srinivasa Ramanujan (December 22, 1887 – April 26, 1920)

Godfrey Harold "G. H." Hardy was an English mathematician, known for his achievements in number theory and mathematical analysis. He is the main character at David Leavitt The Indian Clerk (2007), which depicts his Cambridge years and the relationship with John Edensor Littlewood and Srinivasa Ramanujan. Starting in 1914, he was the mentor of the Indian mathematician Ramanujan. Hardy almost immediately recognized Ramanujan's extraordinary albeit untutored brilliance, and Hardy and Ramanujan became close collaborators. In an interview by Paul Erdős, when Hardy was asked what his greatest contribution to mathematics was, Hardy unhesitatingly replied that it was the discovery of Ramanujan. He called their collaboration "the one romantic incident in my life." Socially he was associated with the Bloomsbury group and the Cambridge Apostles; G. E. Moore, Bertrand Russell and John Maynard Keynes were friends. He was an avid cricket fan and befriended the young C. P. Snow who was one also.
