"The man who knew Infinity" is the true story of a friendship that forever changed mathematics. In 1913, Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel), a self-taught Indian mathematical genius, traveled to Trinity College, Cambridge, where over the course of five years, he forged a bond with his mentor, the brilliant and eccentric professor, G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), and fought against prejudice to reveal his mathematical genius to the world. The film also stars Devika Bhise, Stephen Fry and Toby Jones. This is Ramanujan's story as seen through Hardy's eyes.


The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) will be offering a free screening of "The Man Who Knew Infinity", on November 23rd, 2016 in the CIRS building, room 1250. A second event in this series, a public lecture by Prof. Ken Ono on "Gems of Ramanujan: The Legacy of and Lasting Impact on Mathematics", will take place on November 24th, please see the PIMS event page for more details on that event.


Seats for this screening are limited. No payment is required, though participants should RSVP through this form.
