NOTE
George Andrews, the world's leading expert in the theory of integer partitions, discovered Ramanujan's Lost Notebook in 1976. In an interesting news story (Asia Times Online - India celebrates the man who 'knew' infinity), India has declared 2012 as "National Year of Mathematics" as a tribute to Srinivasa Ramanujan.
