With (Mathematica's QPochhammer[a,q]), the expressions and represent Roger–Ramanujan and Roger–Ramanujan , also representable as and , using Mathematica's notation for continued fractions (the ContinuedFractionK function). In 1919, months before his death, Ramanujan wrote down various elegant results for this function in what became the "lost notebook."[more]
Ramanujan claimed that many equations like can be expressed in terms of radicals . This notebook collects many of these results.[less]
