Though he had almost no formal training in pure mathematics, he made substantial contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions. Ramanujan independently compiled nearly 3,900 results (mostly identities and equations). Nearly all his claims have now been proven correct. His original and highly unconventional results, such as the Ramanujan prime and the Ramanujan theta function, have inspired a vast amount of further research. In 1917, he was elected to the London Mathematical Society; in 1918 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. At age 31 Ramanujan was one of the youngest Fellows in the history of the Royal Society. In 1918, he was the first Indian to be elected a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge) {}
