Abstract

Karl Mahlburg brilliantly showed the importance of crank functions in partition congruences that were originally guessed by Freeman Dyson. Ramanujan's partition functions are the centre of these works. Not only for the theory on cranks, but for many other researchers in India Ramanujan's work inspired their career in mathematics.
