## Complete Elementary Analysis of Nested radicals

This is a continuation of the series of summer projects sponsored by department of science and technology, government of India. In this project work, I have worked to collect and expand what Ramanujan did with Nested Radicals and summarized all important facts into the one article. In the article, there are formulas, formulas and only…

## Welcome 2012 – The National Mathematical Year in India

I was very pleased on reading this news that Government of India has decided to celebrate the upcoming year 2012 as the National Mathematical Year. This is 125th birth anniversary of math-wizard Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920). He is one of the greatest mathematicians India ever produced. Well this is ‘not’ the main reason for appointing 2012…

## Solving Ramanujan's Puzzling Problem

Consider a sequence of functions as follows:- $f_1 (x) = \sqrt {1+\sqrt {x} }$ $f_2 (x) = \sqrt{1+ \sqrt {1+2 \sqrt {x} } }$ $f_3 (x) = \sqrt {1+ \sqrt {1+2 \sqrt {1+3 \sqrt {x} } } }$ ......and so on to \$ f_n (x) = \sqrt {1+\sqrt{1+2 \sqrt…
