Berndt received his Ph.D. in 1966 from the University of Wisconsin and
spent a postdoctoral year at the University of Glasgow, in Scotland,
before coming to the University of Illinois. He is an analytic number
theorist with strong interests in several related areas of classical
analysis. His primary interests are in theta functions, qseries,
partitions, continued fractions, Eisenstein series, Dirichlet series, and
character sums. Since early 1974, almost all of his research has been
devoted to proving the claims left without proof by the famous Indian
mathematician Ramanujan in his three notebooks and in his ``lost
notebook.'' The three notebooks contain approximately 3300 results. With
the help of several other mathematicians, he completed his work on the
notebooks in 1998. An account of Berndt's work can be found in his five
books, Ramanujan's Notebooks, Parts IV, published by SpringerVerlag in
the years 1985, 1989, 1991, 1994, and 1998.
