Product Description


"...can surely be studied with profit by those interested in this field. Especially because so many nice examples are worked out, students of mathematics can learn some fascinating number theory, geometry, and analysis by studying this impressive work."--Mathematical Reviews, Mathematical Achievements of Pre-modern Indian Mathematicians

"…the book gives the reader an overall idea of the contributions of ancient authors to the development of Indian mathematics, which will be helpful for students and researchers working on specific authors and topics in Indian mathematics."--CMS Notes, March/April 2014 "This substantial volume offers a wide selection of demonstrations and examples of the methods of pre-modern Indian mathematics, especially those dealing with indeterminate equations. Readers interested in the worldwide development of mathematics will find this book’s abundance of detailed source material, presented in modern notation, a welcome change from the scantiness of the chapters on India in most general histories of mathematics."--Mathematical Association of America online, November 5, 2013 "The book is unique in that its theme is mathematics and only mathematics…"--Zentralblatt MATH, 1263.01003
