The sankrit of the sum of the series is the sum of the cubes. Aryabhatta derived the size of the earth by studying shadows cast onto its surface. Although the work was influential, there is no definitive English translation. The bulk of the mathematics in the Aryabhatiya is contained in the next part, the Ganitapada or “Mathematics. Although this stanza may not seem very helpful or practical to a modern day trigonometry student, it surely represents a major advance in the history of mathematics.

He then gives the names of ascending powers of ten up to 1 billion. He then gives an overview of his astronomical findings. There were also other Jain aryabhatuya whose work also contributed to mathematics.

He divides up history astrologically; aryabhwtiya is from this exposition that a date of AD has been calculated for the compilation of the Aryabhatiya. In some texts, he seems to ascribe the apparent motions of the heavens to the Earth’s rotation. It does not read like a practical manual as does the Chinese Nine Chapters nor does it read like a basic set of theoretical proofs like Euclid’s Elements.


He expressed this relativity thus: In light of this, some scholars suggest that Aryabhata intended for his Aryabhatiya to be a commentary on previous mathematicians and astronomers or possibly a skeletal outline of his small arabhatiya to the canon of knowledge Srinivasiengar Next, Aryabhata lays out the numeration system used in the work. As mentioned, they were translated as jiba and kojiba in Arabic and then misunderstood by Gerard of Cremona while translating an Arabic geometry text to Latin.

This section needs additional citations for verification. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It includes a listing of astronomical constants and the sine table. In the same way that someone in a boat going forward sees an unmoving [object] going backward, so [someone] on the equator sees the aryavhatiya stars going uniformly westward.

It is worth noting that he makes no distinction between geometric areas, abstract quantities, and volumes. Half of the circumference multiplied by half the sanskirt is the area of a circle. History of Hindu Mathematics. Aryabhata himself one of at least two mathematicians bearing that name lived in the late 5th and the early 6th centuries at Kusumapura Pataliutraa village near the city of Patna and wrote a book called Aryabhatiya.

This problem was also studied in ancient Chinese mathematics, and its solution is usually referred to as the Chinese remainder theorem. Indian Mathematics and Astronomy: Later in the 12th century, when Gherardo of Cremona translated these writings from Arabic into Latin, he replaced the Arabic jaib with its Latin counterpart, sinuswhich means “cove” or “bay”; thence comes the English word sine.

A History of Mathematics Second ed. Little else is known about him.


Even given a commentary, the logic is explained with a framework that is entirely alien to Western readers. The book, if used in the technical studies of that time, would have helped in the advancement of humankind. While some of the verses have a logical flow, some do not, and its unintuitive structure can make it difficult for a casual reader to follow.

That is, he used letters of the alphabet to form words with consonants giving digits and vowels denoting place value.

Instead of the prevailing cosmogony in which eclipses were caused by Rahu and Ketu identified as the pseudo-planetary lunar nodeshe explains eclipses in terms of shadows cast by and falling on Zanskrit.

Also see earlier overview: He divides up history astrologically – it is from this exposition that historians deduced that the Aryabhatiya was written in C. Snaskrit mentions proportions of triangles with respect to shadows.
