​​​​In the spring of 1976, George Andrews of Pennsylvania nation college visited the library at Trinity collage, Cambridge, to check the papers of the past due G.N. Watson. between those papers, Andrews came across a sheaf of 138 pages within the handwriting of Srinivasa Ramanujan. This manuscript used to be quickly specific, "Ramanujan's misplaced notebook." Its discovery has often been deemed the mathematical similar of discovering Beethoven's 10th symphony.

This quantity is the fourth of five volumes that the authors plan to write down on Ramanujan’s misplaced notebook.​ In distinction to the first 3 books on Ramanujan's misplaced computer, the fourth e-book doesn't concentrate on q-series.  lots of the entries tested during this quantity fall lower than the purviews of quantity idea and classical analysis.  numerous incomplete manuscripts of Ramanujan released through Narosa with the misplaced laptop are discussed.  3 of the partial manuscripts are on diophantine approximation, and others are in classical Fourier research and major quantity theory.   many of the entries in quantity thought fall below the umbrella of classical analytic quantity theory.   maybe the main interesting entries are hooked up with the classical, unsolved circle and divisor problems.

Review from the second one volume:

"Fans of Ramanujan's arithmetic are bound to be overjoyed by means of this publication. whereas many of the content material is taken without delay from released papers, so much chapters comprise new fabric and a few formerly released proofs were more advantageous. Many entries are only begging for extra examine and may absolutely be inspiring learn for many years to come back. the following installment during this sequence is eagerly awaited."

Review from the 1st volume:

"Andrews and Berndt are to be congratulated at the task they're doing. this can be the 1st step...on tips on how to an figuring out of the paintings of the genius Ramanujan. it's going to act as an proposal to destiny generations of mathematicians to take on a task that may by no means be complete."
