Earlier this month, the TFI SLOAN Filmmaker fund announced its grantees for 2015, and the Srinivasa Ramanujan biopic *The Man Who Knew Infinity,* now in post-production, is among them.

That’s definitely a movie that could be inspiring indeed, given that Ken Ono has been very much involved in the project and the cast is full of competent actors, as mentionned in Adriana Salerno’s earlier informative blog post.

So its release will probably be a good opportunity to set up public conferences on related topics, or at least get prepared for some questions.

The wikipedia article seems to have a fairly comprehensive compilation of references that could be useful in this regard, including :

- Collected Papers of Srinivasa Ramanujan, an AMS 2000 reprint of the 1927 original
- Ramanujan : Letters and Commentary, by Bruce C. Berndt and Robert A. Rankin (AMS, 1995)
- Ramanujan : Essays and Surveys, by the same authors (AMS, 2001)
- The Mathematical Legacy of Srinivasa Ramanujan, by M. Ram Murty and V. Kumar Murty (Springer, 2012)
- The Tata Institute has a Collectors’s edition of the first three notebooks and a free pdf version of the original on this page
- There are 4 volumes on the lost notebook by Georges E. Andrews and Bruce C. Berndt (Springer, 2005, 2009, 2012, 2013)
- Ramanujan 125, edited by Krishnaswami Alladi and Frank Garvan and Ae Ja Yee (AMS, 2014)
- A recent proof of the Umbral Moonshine Conjecture, which has some of its roots in Ramanujan’s “mock Theta” functions, is nicely popularized in an article by Erica Klarreich in Quanta Magazine
