ramanThis drama, by Queens College professor Ira Hauptman, presents the relationship between two early 20th-century mathematicians, the self-educated Indian genius Srinivasa Ramanujan and Cambridge professor G.H. Hardy. The play relates how these two men, shaped by different cultures, were both drawn together and destroyed by mathematics. The play’s other characters include a Hindu goddess who brings Ramanujan equations in his sleep and Pierre de Fermat, a 17th-century French mathematician who bequeaths an unsolvable problem.
