This would mean that all numbers are the same, which is obviously not true. Bhaskara if the conjunction of the planets with each other and with fixed stars as well as with the orbits of both the Sun and the Moon. Sometimes the last two books Grahaganita and Goladhyaya have been treated as the only two parts of the Siddhanta Siromaniwhile the first two books Lilavati and Bijaganita are viewed as two independent books.

This influence can be seen in the writings of various Islamic mathematicians. The work Bhaskara did in the book on indeterminate equations and integer solutions is the most important material in the book. The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy. As a result, Lilavati was widowed soon after her marriage took place. The Lilavati The Lilavati focuses on arithmetic and according to a story that was written in a Persian translation of the book, the book was written for his daughter, who was named Lilavati.

It is known that he was born in A. Bhaskara died in at Ujjain. In addition, the book covers an epicycle model of the planets. He also goes by the name of Bhaskara or Bhaskaracharya, which means Bhaskara the Teacher. In the Goladhyaya, Bhaskara looked at the sphere.

Each section deals with a different area of mathematics and astronomy. Bhaskara looked at different methods to perform calculations, such as multiplication and squaring, and he also wrote about the rule of three. As a result, the hour set for the marriage passed without the marriage taking place. This book also examined the problems associated with diurnal rotation as well as syzygies.

This book consists of twelve chapters bhaskra covers a variety of astronomical topics. To ensure that the marriage happened at the correct time, Bhaskara made a small hole in a cup and placed bijaganitta in a pail filled hhaskara water.

Bhaskara showed that when a planet is at its farthest or at its closest from Earth, the equation of the centre vanishes. To make Lilavati feel better, Bhaskara wrote her a book about mathematics. He looked at planetary mean motion and methods for calculating ellipses and lunar crescents. One of his discoveries in this book was spherical trigonometry. In addition to his work on positive and negative numbers, Bhaskara also looked methods to determine unknown quantities and did more work on the number zero.

Bhaskara wrote a number of books but the work that has had the most influence in the mathematics field is the Siddhanta Siromani Crown of Treatises. His work was built on and developed after his death by another Indian mathematician, Madhava of Sangamagrama, as well as by mathematicians at the Kerala School. He also discussed astronomical instruments and the difficulties involved with making astronomical calculations.

Bhaskara came to the conclusion that if you divide one by zero, you will end up with an infinite number of pieces. In this book, Bhaskara wrote about his discovery that each positive number can have both a positive square root and a negative square root. This is a field in spherical geometry and is very important in the fields of astronomy, geodesy, and navigation.

Bhaskara realized that when dividing one by a fraction, the smaller the fraction gets, the more pieces are bijagamita. He looked at various branches of mathematics, such as algebra, trigonometry, and calculus.

He also studied and wrote about astronomy. The Bijaganita The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters.

Bhaskara worked at the astronomical observatory at Ujjain and soon became the head of the facility. These small circles then orbit the Earth or some other planetary body.

He knew about the sine table and relationships between various trigonometric functions. From this, Bhaskara concluded that at some point, the differential of the equation of the centre is equal to zero. The rules that Bhaskara wrote about were the same rules that European mathematicians would come up with almost five hundred years later.


Surds are simply square roots that are not whole numbers. The book deals with definitions and terms as bhaskzra as looking at the properties of zero. In addition to indeterminate equations, the book looks at quadratic, and or equations baskara well as methods for evaluating surds.

Bhaskara also used the law of gravity that was proposed by Brahmagupta. The Goladhyaya In the Goladhyaya, Bhaskara looked at the sphere. Bhaskara then warned Lilavati to stay away from the cup.

The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters. While she was looking at the device, a pearl from her dress fell into the cup and blocked the hole. His father was a famous astrologer and mathematician by the name of Mahesvara.

The book was written in A. He also came up with the beginnings of infinitesimal calculus and made a number of contributions in the field of integral calculus. Bhaskara also covered cosmography, geography and the seasons. Bhaskara also looked at ways to expand upon some bijagwnita the work done by Brahmagupta. Syzygy is the alignment of three celestial bodies into an almost straight line. Bhaskara, as did other Indian mathematicians, wrote in verse.

Bhaskara had calculated how long it would take for the cup to fill and sink.

In fact, half of his most famous work dealt with mathematical astronomy. An epicycle model means that some planets, for example, the sun and the moon, move in small circles.
