About this product
- DescriptionCasting aside the usual Eurocentric theories about the origins of mathematics, the authors investigate Vedic texts which originated in ancient India. Aryabhatta, Sulvastrus, and Bhaskaracharya are among the Sanskrit-speaking theoreticians, whose astromical works contributed to the ancient body of mathematics, preceding the Greeks. This book deals with some of the chrological difficulties in tracing the history of mathematics, as well as the reasons for the decay in the ancient Vedic civilization.
