**Ramanujan, Partitions, and Mock Theta Functions**

We will discuss Ramanujan, his mathematics and its impact over the years. We will pay particular attention to partitions and mock theta functions. We will also demonstrate how a heuristic relating Appell-Lerch functions and divergent partial theta functions enables one to build a theory of q-series formulas, which has many classical and modern results in the area of mock theta functions as applications.

**Everyone is welcome!**
