The last two of these rules are notable as the earliest attempt to define division by zero, even though they are not compatible with modern number theory division by zero is undefined for a field. While Brahmagupta is also known for being an astronomer, he did not write as extensively on astronomy as brahmmagupta did on mathematics.

Buhler identifies it with pi-lo-mi-lo, mentioned by Hiuen-T-Sang A. The two [lower segments] of the two diagonals are two sides in a triangle; the base [of the quadrilateral is the base of the triangle]. In fact, the Brahmasphutasiddhanta published in CE was his second, albeit most important, work. Each and every book arrived in brahmagupt shape–thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes.

Thus Brahmagupta enumerates his first six sine-values as, I hope to do future brrahmagupta from you. The Present work contains the Sanskrit text of Ganitadhyaya of Brahmasphutasiddhanta with introduction’, English translation and notes along with Illustrative examples of Prthudakasvami and others.

In the beginning of chapter twelve of his Brahmasphutasiddhantaentitled CalculationBrahmagupta details operations on fractions. The Birth of Mathematics: He wrote the next work Khandakhadyaka K.

He explains that since the Moon is closer to the Earth than the Sun, the degree of the illuminated part of the Moon depends on the relative positions of the Sun and the Moon, and this can be computed from the size of the angle between the two bodies.


Later, Brahmagupta moved to Ujjainwhich was also a major centre for astronomy. In fact, Brahmagupta is described as having a better understanding of number systems and place value than any of his contemporaries.

Rational for the geometric theorems and rules are provided with relevant figures, Parallel rules and examples found in other available work on Hindu Mathematics have been indicated and complete solution of the examples are given in modern notation and symbols for the benefit of the students.

One can perceive mastery of the subject matter and craftsmanship on the part of Shri Heroor. Parallel rules and example found in other available works on Hindu mathematics have been indicated in the foot notes. As a young man, Brahmagupta was a disciple of Varahmihir, a great astronomer of the time, who had written extensively.

In chapter seven of his Brahmasphutasiddhantaentitled Lunar CrescentBrahmagupta rebuts the idea that the Moon is farther from the Earth than the Sun, an idea which had been suggested by Vedic scripture. Astronomical details reflecting his substantial astronomical work.

Please read our Privacy Policy for details. One hypothesis is that he was born in Bhinmal a city in the Rajasthan Siddhamta of Northern India which was quite powerful during that time period but no one knows for sure. Some of the important contributions made by Brahmagupta in astronomy are his methods for calculating the position of heavenly bodies over time ephemeridestheir rising and setting, conjunctionsand the calculation of solar and lunar eclipses.

I bow to Mahadeva, the cause of creation, existence and destruction of the universe. The key to his solution was the identity, [24].


Brahma-sphuta-siddhanta | work by Brahmagupta |

In compiling this work, Siddhantz have been indebted to and relied on the expository source works by great savants like Sudhakar Dvivedi. Thank you very much. This theorem can be used to find the diagonals of cyclic quadrilaterals four sided figures whose vertices lie on a circle.

For this reason, Brahmagupta is credited with the discovery of the number zero see Boyer As no proofs are given, it is not known how Brahmagupta’s results were derived. Expeditions were sent into Gurjaradesa. In particular, he recommended using “the pulverizer” to solve equations with multiple unknowns. You won’t believe what some items have looked like when they’ve arrived! However, he lived and worked there for a good part of his life.

The square-root of the sum of the two products of the sides and opposite sides of a non-unequal quadrilateral is the diagonal. The nothing that is: That of which [the square] is the square is [its] square-root. A good deal of it is astronomy, but it also contains key chapters on mathematics, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry and algorithmics, which are believed to contain new insights due to Brahmagupta himself. The work Khandakhadyaka consists of two distinct parts, viz.

According to tradition of those times, Ganits includes matter pertaining to arithmetic problems on mixtures, plane figures, shadows, series piles and excavations. A negative or a positive divided by zero has that [zero] as its divisor, or zero divided by a negative or a positive [has that negative or positive as its divisor].
