Two number theorists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have been able to unlock the long standing mystery revolving around a set of of numerical expressions known as “mock theta functions” proposed by the great Indian mathematician Sreenivasan Ramanujan .

Two number theorists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have pieced together and explanatory framework that for the first time describes what the functions are and the way to derive them.

This finding means resolutions to lot of long standing open issues in number theory as well as problems in the field of physics, chemistry and several other branches of mathematics.
