BHASKARA MATHEMATICIAN PDF

Bhaskara I , flourished c. Little is known about the life of Bhaskara; I is appended to his name to distinguish him from a 12th-century Indian astronomer of the same name. In his writings there are clues to possible locations for his life, such as Valabhi, the capital of the Maitraka dynasty , and Ashmaka, a town in Andhra Pradesh and the location of a school of followers of Aryabhata. His fame rests on three treatises he composed on the works of Aryabhata. Planetary longitudes, heliacal rising and setting of the planets, conjunctions among the planets and stars, solar and lunar eclipses , and the phases of the Moon are among the topics Bhaskara discusses in his astronomical treatises. Bhaskara particularly stressed the importance of proving mathematical rules rather than just relying on tradition or expediency.

Here is a quick sample:. There are several Aryabhatas in Indian mathematical history, the first of which is an Indian Euclid of sorts. His book, Aryabhatiya, consolidated many prior achievements into a small book, which contained instructions for calculations. He understood division by zero better than Brahmagupta, and his work gives the first inkling of the concept of infinity.

Understood negative numbers well. His main contributions are to the theory of numbers and mathematical analysis. His discoveries on continued fractions were astonishing, and his notebooks contain over 3, mathematical results.

Chandra began his career as a physicist studying with Homi Bhabha and then under the celebrated Paul Dirac, whom he is supposed to have seen once in a term.

Since he is known in India as Bhaskaracharya we will refer to him throughout this article by that name. Bhaskaracharya's father was a Brahman named Mahesvara. Mahesvara himself was famed as an astrologer. This happened frequently in Indian society with generations of a family being excellent mathematicians and often acting as teachers to other family members. Bhaskaracharya became head of the astronomical observatory at Ujjain, the leading mathematical centre in India at that time.
