On the Rogers-Ramanujan continued fraction
In the “Lost” note book, Ramanujan had stated a large number of results regarding evaluation of his continued fraction$$R(\tau ) = \frac{{exp2\pi i\tau /}}{{1 + }}\frac{{5exp(2\pi i\tau )}}{{1 + }}\frac{{exp(4\pi i\tau )}}{{1 + }}...$$ for certain values of τ. It is shown that all these results and many more have their source in the Kronecker limit formula.
