It's 100 years since the self-taught mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan was elected fellow of the Royal Society. To celebrate the centenary the Royal Society organised a meeting back in October at which we met Ken Ono, mathematician and also an advisor and associate producer on the recent film about Ramanujan, The man who knew infinity.
In this podcast Ono tells us about Ramanujan and the work that got him elected to the Royal Society, and his Spirit of Ramanujan project which supports engineers, mathematicians and scientists who lack institutional support.
