Judith Grabiner, the writer of A Historian appears again, has lengthy been drawn to investigating what mathematicians really do, and the way arithmetic truly has built. She addresses the result of her investigations no longer largely to different historians, yet to mathematicians and lecturers of arithmetic.

We have given a slightly more explicit version of the corollary above than did Ramanujan. ), mm, nn ^> n0. In Entry 26 and its two corollaries, we quote from the notebooks [60, vol. 2, p. 198]. ENTRY 26. G(q) is a perfect, complete, pure, double series of 1/2 a degree. COROLLARY (i).
