Introduction

Abstract

The content of this volume is more unified than those of the first two volumes of our attempts to provide proofs of the many beautiful theorems bequeathed to us by Ramanujan in his notebooks. Theta-functions provide the binding glue that blends Chapters 16-21 together. Although we provide proofs here for all of Ramanujan’s formulas, in many cases, we have been unable to find the roads that led Ramanujan to his discoveries. It is hoped that others will attempt to discover the pathways that Ramanujan took on his journey through his luxuriant labyrinthine forest of enchanting and alluring formulas.
