### Abstract

The meet of G.H.Hardy and Srinivasa Ramanujan was one of the most romantic story in Mathematics. Hardy once replied to an interview question that his greatest contribution to Mathematics was the discovery of Ramanujan. Indeed this is not an overstatement, the Hardy-Ramanujan expansion of $p(n)$ (1918) is a stunning and beautiful formula. We will discuss the techniques leading to this formula.
