Earlier to establishment of the Department of research in Mathematics by the University of Madras, it encouraged young men of promise to undertake research studies in Mathematics in the University. The first of them was the late Srinivasa Ramanujan, who was given a special research scholarship for a number of years, while he was pursuing his prolific work on the Theory of Numbers with Professor Hardy at Cambridge. He was offered a professorship in the Department of Mathematics, University of Madras, after his return from England. He could not, however, take up this position owing to his serious illness. His untimely death after his return to India deprived the University of the chance of making him the first Professor of Mathematics and starting the Department of Mathematics then. The extraordinary abilities of Srinivasa Ramanujan, F.R.S. helped the revival of an interest in this part of the country in Mathematics.
