On the reciprocity theorem of Ramanujan and its applications
In this paper, we give two new proofs of the reciprocity theorem of Ramanujan found in his lost notebook. We derive the well-known quintuple product identity using the reciprocity theorem. Further we obtain two interesting partition theoretic identities from the reciprocity theorem.
