Ramanujan discovered many continued fraction expansions about ratios of the Gamma functions. However, Ramanujan left us no clues about how he discovered these elegant formulas. In this talk, we will explain the so-called MC-algorithm. By this algorithm, we can not only rediscover many of Ramanujan's continued fraction expansions, but also find some new formulas.
