Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to examine the content of Chapter 4 of Ramanujan's second notebook. The first half of this chapter is on iterates of the exponential function. The second half focuses upon an interesting formal procedure which Ramanujan, in particular, used in the theory of integral transforms.
