Bhaskaracharya

A GREAT DISCOVERER (1114 -1183 Before Common Era)

Bhaskaracharyawas a born genius and an authority in mathematics, especially in algebra and geometry.

His famous workandLilavatiremain unparalleled works by substantiating his profound intelligence.Bijaganita

His astronomical findings on planetary positions, Occurrences of eclipses and Cosmography written in his treatise titled "Siddhanta Shiromani" [Siddhant Meaning Principle] stun every one. Siddhanta Shirmoani was divided into four parts;

Lilavati[Quadratic equations, Cubic equations and Quartic Indeterminate equations]Bijaganita[Algebraic Calculation OR Algebra]Grahaganita[Astronomical(Graha) Calculations(Ganita)]Goladhyaya[Spheres OR Spherical Trigonometry]

"Lilavati" is divided into 13 chapters it covers branches of Mathematics, Arithmetic, Algebra, geometry, and a part of Trigonometry and Mensuration.

His work includes

- Properties of
'ZERO' the division and operation rules of '0'0- The estimation of 'PIE' (22/7;)
- His Work on
Negative Numbersincluding Surd'sArithmeticalTerms- Inverse Rule of 'THREE' and of 5, 7, 9, 11

In his book "" he wrote on the gravitational force, that helpsSurya Siddhant

to keep the planets, the Sun and the moon in their respective orbits much before the world could even waken and realise to these findings.

"" the Quadratic Indeterminate equations was given by him in 12th Century well before the European mathematicians got it in the 17th Century.KuttakaBrahmaguptain the 7th Century, developed an "" using which Bhaskara was able to define "Astronomical Quantities". He accurately calculated the time that earth took to revolve around the SUN as 365.2588 days that is a difference of 3.5Minutes of modern acceptance of 365.2563 days.Astronomical Model

This was much beforeLeibnizorNewtonwould come up withDifferentialorIntegralCalculus and to explain the forces of Gravity. He was first to conceive the differential coefficient and differential calculus

Bhaskaracharya was a Teacher, a Mathematician and also an Astronomer. He was born in Sahyadri the beutiful Maharastra terrains. He also headed the astronomical observatory in Uajjain that was the learning centre of India.His contributions to Astronomy and Mathematics in the 12th Century was very significant as mentioned above.

1234567very useful for students.

Science teacher : Dear kids, I am going to teach you about gravity.

Do you know why? When a ball return to earth when it was thrown high.

British kid: Madam, it is because of gravitational force.

Indian kid: Samja nai, pere ek bar bolea.

India is busy in learning ENLISH, not in science.

man

great

great our INDIA IS GREAT

was there in India
