In the Goladhyaya, Bhaskara looked at the sphere. Lilavatihas thirteen chapters and covers a number of topics. Each section deals with a different area of mathematics and astronomy.

His work was built on and developed after his death by another Indian mathematician, Madhava of Sangamagrama, as well as by mathematicians at the Kerala School.

The beginnings of infinitesimal calculus and mathematical analysis can be seen in his work. In addition to indeterminate equations, the book looks at quadratic, and simple equations as well as methods for evaluating surds. The book was written in A.

Bijaganita Bhaskara II Archives – Famous Mathematicians

While she was looking at the device, a pearl from her dress fell into the cup and blocked the hole. An epicycle model means that some planets, for example, the sun and the moon, move in small circles. Bhaskara looked at the mean longitudes and the true longitudes of the planets as well as vhaskara. Even though Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz are viewed as the founders of differential and integral calculus, bijaganitz 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.


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. The Goladhyaya In the Goladhyaya, Bhaskara looked at the sphere. The Ganitadhyaya The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy. He also came up with the beginnings of infinitesimal calculus and made a number of contributions in the field of integral calculus.

8 V. Bhaskaracharya II

Bhaskara also used the law of gravity that was proposed by Brahmagupta. Bhaskara did a lot of important work in calculus and developed ways to use the principles of differential calculus to deal with problems in astronomy.

According to the story, Bhaskara made a horoscope of his daughter and found that her husband would die shortly after the couple were married. In this book, Bhaskara wrote about his discovery that each positive number can have both a positive square root and a negative square root.

His Writings Bhaskara wrote a number of books but the work that has had the most influence in the mathematics field is the Siddhanta Siromani Crown of Treatises. Bhaskara also looked at ways to expand upon some of the work done by Brahmagupta.

This book also examined the problems associated with diurnal rotation as well as syzygies. One of his discoveries in this book was spherical trigonometry. He looked at planetary mean motion and methods for calculating ellipses and lunar crescents. It is broken into thirteen chapters and covers areas such as the nature of a sphere and the armillary sphere.


It has verses and is divided into four parts; although, sometimes the books are viewed as separate books. It is known that he was born in A. Bhaskara is famous for a number of innovations in mathematics. The Lilavati focuses on bijaganitx 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.


Bhaskara came to the conclusion that if you divide one by zero, you will end up with an infinite number of pieces. As a result, the hour set for the marriage passed without the marriage taking place. He also looked at both lunar and solar eclipses. Bhaskara wrote a number of books but the work that has had the most influence in the mathematics field is the Siddhanta Siromani Crown of Treatises.

Syzygy is the alignment of three celestial bodies into an almost straight line. Bhaskara based his astronomy on the earlier work by Aryabhata. The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters. The equation of the centre is the measure of the distance between where a planet is and where it is predicted to be given the assumption that its movement is uniform.

In addition to bijaanita work on positive and negative numbers, Bhaskara also looked methods to determine unknown quantities and did more bhasmara on the number zero.

Sometimes the last two books Bijaganitq and Goladhyaya have been treated as the only two parts of the Siddhanta Siromaniwhile the first two books Lilavati and Bijaganita are viewed as two independent books. The problem was that Indian mathematicians were not able to accept the fact that it is impossible to divide by 0. The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy. An armillary sphere is a model showing the globe.
