Unfortunately, our editorial approach may not be able to accommodate all contributions. Early developments Indian mathematics In Indian mathematics: The twelve chapters of the first part cover topics such as: Mathematician Bhaskara I who has been dated back in AD has been the one of the astronomers who again belonged to the southern part of India who had his pioneering contribution ion tracing out the longitudes and latitudes which are the in visible lines around the Earth which decides the motion of the earth within itself.

Similar to our current decimal system, these words were aligned such that each number assigns the factor of the power of ten corresponding to its position, only in reverse order: By biofraphy this site, you agree to allow cookies to be placed.

The II has been attached to his name to bilgraphy him from the 7th-century astronomer of the same name. The centre was a famous school of mathematical astronomy. His work Mahabhaskariya divides into eight chapters about mathematical astronomy.

Babylonian mathematics Chinese mathematics Greek mathematics Islamic mathematics European mathematics. Among the many interesting results given by Bhaskara, discoveries first found in his works include the now well known results for: In her biogaphy though, she went to look at the device and a pearl from her nose ring accidentally dropped into it, thus upsetting it.

His work, the Siddhanta Shiromani, is an astronomical treatise and contains many theories not found in earlier works. He put the device bhazkaracharya a room with a warning to Lilavati to not go near it.

His system is truly positional, since the same words representing, can also be used to represent the values 40 or He and Brahmagupta are two of the most renowned Indian mathematicians who made considerable contributions to the study of fractions. Brahmaguptaone of the most accomplished of the ancient Indian astronomers. He is considered to be a pioneer in the field of calculus as it is probable that he was the first to conceive the differential coefficient and differential calculus.


His third book includes his version of Aryabhatiya which has come out very popularly in the south and which includes the verses and quotations of the original text. Thus the works of Bhaskar I is regarded with honour in bhaskracharya the Ancient Hindu Astronomy which has been widely referred in the south of Indian Biogrpahy.

Thank You for Your Contribution! Among this Mahabhaskariya is an elaborate version of three astronomical chapters of Aryabhatiya which has been arranged within eight chapters which include Mean longitude of planets and indeterminate analysis kuttaka ; Longitude correction; time, place and direction, spherical trigonometry; latitudes and longitudes of junction-stars; True longitudes of planets; Solar and lunar eclipses; Rising, setting and conjunction of planets; Astronomical constants; and tithi and miscellaneous examples.

Bhakaracharya instance, the number 1 was given as moonsince it exists only once; the number 2 was represented by wingstwinsor eyessince they always occur in pairs; the number 5 was given by the 5 senses. His work is outstanding for its systemisation, improved methods and the new topics that he has introduced. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. This device could vary from a simple stick to V-shaped staffs designed specifically for determining angles with the help of a calibrated scale.


In particular Bhaskara seemed bhasiaracharya interested in trigonometry for its own sake than his predecessors who saw it only as a tool for calculation.

Georg Cantor German, Russian. He gave the general solutions of: He has been called the greatest mathematician of medieval India.

Mathematician Bhaskara I is popularly known for his three books or volumes on Hindu astronomy which are named as Mahabhaskariya the Great Book Of BhaskaraLaghubhaskaraiya the smaller version or book of Bhaskara and Aryabhatiyabhashya — a commentary on Aryabhatiya, the book written by Aryabhata.

It is believed that Bhaskara II was the first to conceive the differential coefficient and differential calculus. Furthermore, the Lilavati contained excellent recreative problems and it is thought that Bhaskara’s intention may have been that a student of ‘Lilavati’ should concern himself with the mechanical application of the method. Composed in Sanskrit Language, the treatise consists of verses. His work is outstanding for its systemisation, improved methods and the new topics that he has introduced.
