Abstract: 

The "Lost" Notebook provides us with a record (probably incomplete) of Ramanujan's discoveries during the last year of his life. A number of his formulas from this document have been proved and analyzed; however, many remain unproved and totally mysterious. We shall survey some of the topics covered by the "Lost" Notebook, and we shall consider some of those formulas which are still open.
