By George E. Andrews, Bruce C. Berndt
This quantity is the second one of roughly 4 volumes that the authors plan to put in writing on Ramanujan’s misplaced laptop, that's largely interpreted to incorporate all fabric released within the misplaced pc and different Unpublished Papers in 1988.
The fundamental issues addressed within the authors’ moment quantity at the misplaced computing device are q-series, Eisenstein sequence, and theta capabilities. many of the entries on q-series can be found within the center of the unique misplaced computing device, whereas the entries on Eisenstein sequence are both scattered within the misplaced laptop or are present in letters that Ramanujan wrote to G.H. Hardy from nursing homes.
About Ramanujan's misplaced laptop, quantity I:
"Andrews and Berndt are to be congratulated at the activity they're doing. this can be the 1st step...on how to an figuring out of the paintings of the genius Ramanujan. it may act as an suggestion to destiny generations of mathematicians to take on a task that might by no means be complete."

"...the effects are geared up topically with cross-references to the identities as they seem within the unique Ramanujan manuscript. quite worthwhile are the broad references, indicating the place within the literature those effects were confirmed or independently came upon in addition to the place and the way they've been used."
- Bulletin of the yank Mathematical Society
"The arithmetic group owes an enormous debt of gratitude to Andrews and Berndt for venture the huge activity of manufacturing a coherent presentation besides whole proofs of the chaotically written mathematical recommendations of Ramanujan over the last yr of his existence. a few eighty five years after his loss of life, appealing "new" and helpful result of Ramanujan remain dropped at light."
