Ramanujan’s mysterious deathbed Theory proven correct
In 1920, when Ramanujan was on his death-bed, he wrote a letter to his mentor, English mathematician G.H.Hardy describing several new mathematical functions never before heard of, along with an intuition about how they worked.
In his letter, he described several new functions that behaved differently from known theta functions, or modular forms, and yet was very similar to them.
He hypothesized that his mock modular forms corresponded to the ordinary modular forms earlier identified by Carl Jacobi, and that both would wind up with similar outputs for roots of 1.
As per recent findings by American researchers, the formula is correct and could explain the behavior of black holes.
