Bhaskara came to the conclusion that if you divide one by zero, you will end up with an infinite number of pieces. In the Goladhyaya, Bhaskara looked at the sphere. It is known that he was born in A. Bhaskara died in at Ujjain. His work was built on and developed after his death by another Indian mathematician, Madhava of Sangamagrama, as well as bijaganit mathematicians at the Kerala School.

The work Bhaskara did in bijganita book on indeterminate equations and integer solutions is the most important material in the book. In fact, half of his most famous work dealt with mathematical astronomy. He also goes by the name of Bhaskara or Bhaskaracharya, which means Bhaskara the Teacher. 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 broken into thirteen chapters and covers areas such as the nature of a sphere and the armillary sphere. Bhaskara worked at the astronomical observatory at Ujjain and soon became the head of the facility.

8 V. Bhaskaracharya II

This book consists of twelve chapters and covers a variety of astronomical topics. Bhaskara discussed 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.

Bhaskara II is a famous Indian mathematician. Even though Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz are viewed as the bihaganita of differential and integral calculus, there is a lot of evidence that shows Bhaskara developed a number of the principles of differential calculus and that he may have been the first to come up with both the derivative and the differential coefficient as well as differential calculus.


The Ganitadhyaya The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy. In fact, Bhaskara also taught mathematics to his son Loksamudra.

The problem was that Indian mathematicians were not able to accept the fact that it is impossible to divide by 0.

This influence can be seen in the writings of various Islamic mathematicians. Bhaskara calculated that it would take To ensure that the marriage happened at the correct time, Bhaskara made a small hole in a cup and placed it in a pail filled with water.

The equation of the centre is the measure of bhaslara distance between where a planet is and where it is predicted to be given the assumption that its movement is uniform.

An armillary sphere is a model showing the globe. The beginnings of infinitesimal calculus and mathematical analysis can be seen in his work. This observatory was the top mathematical center in India and excellent mathematicians, such as Varahamihira bbhaskara Brahmagupta, had also worked at the observatory. Each section deals with a different area of mathematics and astronomy. Surds are simply bijaganifa roots that are not whole numbers.

His knowledge of solving equations and number systems were at such a high level that it would take European mathematicians hundreds of years to attain this level. Bhaskara bhaskra a number of other topics in Lilavati as well, such as trigonometry and mensuration, and even included a number of problems that readers of the book could work on. 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.

The Bijaganita The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters.


Bhaskara is famous for a number of innovations in bojaganita. The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters. The book was written in A. Bhaskara viewed the solar system as being heliocentric it revolves around the sun and the planets have an elliptical orbit.

Bijaganita – Wikipedia

He knew about the sine table and relationships between various trigonometric functions. Bhaskara based his astronomy on the earlier work by Aryabhata.

Bhaskara seems to have an actual interest in trigonometry and used it to calculate the sines of and degree angles. In addition to indeterminate equations, the book looks at quadratic, and simple equations as well as methods for evaluating surds.

The only way to prevent the death was to make sure that the marriage happened exactly at a specific time. He placed the cup in the water so binaganita it bhaskaar sink at the exact time Lilavati was supposed to get married. Bhaskara also discovered spherical trigonometry. He looked at various branches of mathematics, such as algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. He looked at planetary mean motion and methods for calculating ellipses and lunar crescents.

To make Lilavati feel better, Bhaskara wrote her a book about mathematics. From this, Bhaskara concluded that at some bijagabita, the differential of the equation of the centre is equal to zero.

He also studied and wrote about astronomy. Syzygy is the alignment of three celestial bodies into an almost straight line. Bhaskara showed that when a planet is at its farthest or at its closest from Earth, the equation of the centre vanishes. He was the first person bujaganita realize this.

Bhaskara also looked at ways to expand upon some of the work done by Brahmagupta.
