Dr. Ono stars in the 2013 docudrama The Genius of Srinivasa Ramanujan. He is profiled in the May 2014 issue of Scientific American. He was an Associate Producer and the mathematical consultant for the movie The Man Who Knew Infinity, starring Jeremy Irons (as G. H. Hardy) and Dev Patel (as Ramanujan). It is this movie and the work of Ramanujan that will be the focus of Dr. Ono's public lecture.

We welcome all students and faculty to attend Ken's lectures.
