Although not a mathematician myself, from reading about Ramanujan I get the impression that some of his results arose from an almost instinctive understanding of the way numbers behave, accompanied by enormous amounts of experimentation, rather than from unbroken chains of logic. Is J H Conway a modern equivalent?
Sadly, whenever I try to apply instinct rather than logic to solving crossword clues I get the wrong answer! Replies:
