Title: On Entry II.16.12: A continued fraction of Ramanujan

Authors: Gaurav Bhatnagar and Mourad E. H. Ismail

Abstract:

We study a continued fraction due to Ramanujan, that he recorded as Entry 12

in Chapter 16 of his second notebook. It is presented in Part III of Berndt's

volumes on Ramanujan's notebooks. We give two alternate approaches to proving Ramanujan's Entry 12, one using a method of Euler, and another using the theory of orthogonal polynomials. We consider a natural generalization of Entry 12 suggested by the theory of orthogonal polynomials.

I presented this work in the OPSFA2019 conference in Hagenberg, Austria. Here are the slides from the talk in Hagenberg. OPSFA2019 was an amazing conference. I got a chance to hear Christian's concert on the church organ, saw and heard Chihara, met Alan Sokal (among others), hung out with Michael and Hjalmar and worked with Mourad on this paper and on our next joint paper. Here are some more pictures from Hagenberg.
