PLOT – In The Man Who Knew Infinity Dev Patel portrays the mathematical thinkers Srinivasa Ramanujan, who managed the early 20th century, set up by simple means complicated mathematical theories. The Man Who Knew Infinity reveals itself Srinivasa Ramanujan Aiyangar (Dev Patel), although he was born in Madras, India in poor conditions inside. He succeeds in 1913 with the support of Sir Francis Spring (Stephen Fry), to get a place at the prestigious English University of Cambridge. To convince the local professors of his genius, he sends a letter with mathematical formulas to the prestigious Professor G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons). The Man Who Knew Infinity The records of the young Indian encounter in the University on astonished enthusiasm, and it does not take a long time to bring him to Britain, where he is to work with respected colleagues as JE Littlewood (Toby Jones). The recognition at the highest levels of mathematics is inevitable, but to pursue his career, Srinivasa has his wife and family in India leave. And also about his health, it is not looking good. The Man Who Knew Infinity is based on the written by Robert Kanigel biography The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan that the American author brought out 1991st He describes how Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar (1887-1920) brought it from poor self-taught as one of the most celebrated Indian mathematician by going during the First World War to England, by G. H. Hardy was taken under its wing. Only shortly before his death at just 32, he returned to India. The Man Who Knew Infinity India around the turn of the 20th century: Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) is regarded as a mathematical prodigy. The young Indians from a poor family enjoys despite the bad circumstances a good education, in which he is the best of his district at the age of 10 years. In subsequent years, he self-taught knowledge of advanced mathematics and can already put up with 13 years first mathematical formulas. But his exclusive interest in mathematics prevent him to exist in other school subjects and so he takes no college a job as a simple clerk. The Man Who Knew Infinity Its intuitive genius is overlooked in the new environment, however, and so Ramanujan applies the leading mathematicians in the world, which teach at Trinity College in Cambridge, England. Ramanujan wrote a renowned professor at the G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons). This is intrigued by Ramanujan’s formulas and theories, but can not believe no direct evidence first. The Man Who Knew Infinity The Briton invites the Indians in the academic circle to England, where he led his colleagues to mathematicians such as John Edensor Littlewood (Toby Jones), Sir Francis Spring (Stephen Fry) and Bertrand Russell (Jeremy Northam) his recent, progressive theories to prove evidence. But Ramanujan meets in the unfamiliar surroundings rather incomprehension and disapproval as recognition and fame. As even the First World War broke out in 1914, Ramanujan feels in his new life increasingly uncomfortable. The biopic about the brilliant, Indian mathematician was directed by Matt Brown. The film The Man Who Knew Infinity premiered at the Sarasota Film Festival its world premiere. Srinivasa Ramanujan was ahead in spite of his lack of academic training of its time. His mathematical theories were initially without any evidence, making him opportunities to publications were denied. In his short life, he was only 32 years old, his work has remained preserved for posterity by the invitation to England and so he created in his time in Cambridge some groundbreaking theories.
