Book Description

Aug. 27 2012 Elsevier Insights

Mathematics in India has a long and impressive history. Presented in chronological order, this book discusses mathematical contributions of Pre-Modern Indian Mathematicians from the Vedic period (800 B.C.) to the 17th Century of the Christian era. These contributions range across the fields of Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry. The book presents the discussions in a chronological order, covering all the contributions of one Pre-Modern Indian Mathematician to the next. It begins with an overview and summary of previous work done on this subject before exploring specific contributions in exemplary technical detail. This book provides a comprehensive examination of pre-Modern Indian mathematical contributions that will be valuable to mathematicians and mathematical historians.

  • Contains more than 160 original Sanskrit verses with English translations giving historical context to the contributions
  • Presents the various proofs step by step to help readers understand
  • Uses modern, current notations and symbols to develop the calculations and proofs

Product Description


".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
