Title of the talk : Some applications of the Ramanujan Sum

Abstract : Srinivasa Ramanujan introduced particular trigonometric sum (which is these days called as Ramanujan Sum) in one of his papers appeared in 1918. It is a finite sum of roots of unity. He derived several identities using this sum in which  one  was claimed to be equivalent to the celebrated Prime Number Theorem.
Here we go through an introduction to this concept and some of its applications which are being discussed very much in the current research scenario.
