## Indian Mathematics

**Indian Mathematics** emanated in Indian Sub-continent by the contribution of Great Mathematicians like **Aryabhata, Brahmagupta, Mahāvīra,Bhaskara II, Madhava of Sangamagrama and Nilakantha Somayaji.**

**DISCOVERIES**

**DECIMAL NUMBER **The decimal number which we have been using since very long time was first recorded in Indian Mathematics.

* The concept of Zero* used in the decimal places value was first flourished in India and the rule Governing the use of

**zero**

**appeared for the first time in the**

**BRAHMAPUTRA SIDDHANTA**.The origin of modern decimal-based value notation was given by

**ARYABHATIYA.**

ARYABHATA

**NEGATIVE NUMBERS ** during the 7th century AD, Indian Mathematician BRAHAMAGUPTA used negative numbers in his Book Brahma-Sphuta-Siddhanta which was written around 628 A

BRAHAMAGUPTA

Brahmagupta also found the solution of the **quadratic equation ** by using **negative numbers ** which we still use today.

he called—

positive numbersas “” ,fortuneszeroas ““cipher”andnegative numbersas“.CREDIT

A DEBT CUT-OFF FROM NOTHINESS BECOMES A DEBT.

**BAUDHAYANA **composed the *BAUDHAYANA SULBA SUTRA *which is also known as SULBA SUTRA ,contains the examples of Simple **Pythagorean triplets **as well as **THE THEOREM OF PYTHAGOREAN **for the sides of the square .

It also contains the general statement of the Pythagorean theorem.

Baudhayana gives formulae for the square root of two.

# √2 ≈ 1 + 1/3 + 1/3.4 – 1/3.4.34=1.4142156……

The first complete solution ( including zero and negative solutions) to quadratic equation was Described by Brahmagupta in his book **BRAHMASPHUTA-SIDDHANTA**

THERA ARE ALSO MANY NAMES IN THE HISTORY OF MATHEMATICS OF INDIA

**SRINIVASA RAMAJUNA **

**SRINIVASA RAMAJUNA**

**Ramajuna worked in many fields of mathematics like algebra , inequalities ,geometry etc .**

**Ramajuna worked in many fields of mathematics like algebra , inequalities ,geometry etc .**

No mathematician should ever allow himself to forget that mathematics, more than any other art or science, is a young man’s game. … Galois died at twenty-one, Abel at twenty-seven, Ramanujan at thirty-three, Riemann at forty. There have been men who have done great work later; … [but] I do not know of a single instance of a major mathematical advance initiated by a man past fifty. … A mathematician may still be competent enough at sixty, but it is useless to expect him to have original ideas. ——

RAMAJUNA

## P.C. Mahalanobis

## P C MAHALANOBIS gave his great contribution to statical mathematics of Indian history

He is best known for his Statical Measures.The well known Indian statical Institute was founded only by his dedication towards making the statical as the growth of INDIA ‘ s knowledge in mathematics.

**Harish Chandra**

**INFINITE DIMENSIONAL GROUP THEORY WAS GIVEN BY HARISH CHANDRA**

## Satyendranath Bose

**HIS COLABPRATION WITH ALBERT EINSTEIN IN QUANTUM PHYSICS AND MECHANICS AND SOME WORK IN MATHEMATICS.**

AS FAR AS THE INDIAN MATHEMATICS HAS A VERY DEEP IMPACT IN THE HISTORY AS WELL AS IN THE PRESENT DAY ALSO MANY SCHOLARS STILL DO RESEARCH TO FIND SOLUTIONS OF SOME UNSOLVED QUESTIONS.
