About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Andrews, George E.
Location The Pennsylvania State University
Primary Field Mathematics
 Election Citation
Andrews works on the theory of partitions and combinatorics. He has solved long-standing problems posed by prominent figures in the history of mathematics like Euler and Dyson. His interdisciplinary approach has made significant contributions to theoretical physics and computer science.
 Research Interests
My research centers on the theory of partitions and related areas. Also see my Selected Works (With Commentary) Imperial College Press, 2013. I have a long-term interest in the work of Ramanujan, the Indian genius, whose lost notebook I unearthed in the Trinity College Library at Cambridge in 1976. I have collaborated with Bruce Berndt on a multi-volume study of this 'Lost Notebook.' The first volume of this study appeared in June 2005; the second in January 2009, the third in 2012, the fourth in 2013, and the final volume in 2018. In addition to more than 340 scientific papers, I have written books on number theory and the theory of partitions, as well as edited the collected papers of Percy A. MacMahon . Currently I am working on q-series and on further aspects of partitions and their amazing relationship with Ramanujan's enigmatic identities.
