Bhaskara, as did other Indian mathematicians, wrote in verse. Both the Golahhyaya and the Ganitadhyaya show that Bhaskara had strong knowledge of trigonometry.

Bijaganita (elements Of Algebra)

He also discussed astronomical instruments and the difficulties involved with making astronomical calculations. Bhaskara looked at the mean longitudes and the true longitudes of the planets as well as latitudes. Bhaskara then warned Lilavati to stay away from the bhaskaa. He also looked at both lunar and solar eclipses. Bhaskara viewed the solar system as being heliocentric it revolves around the sun and the planets have an elliptical orbit.

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.

An armillary sphere is a model showing the globe. An epicycle model means that some planets, for example, bijavanita sun and the moon, move in small circles.

As a result, Lilavati was widowed soon after her marriage took place.

Even though Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz are viewed as the founders of differential and integral calculus, there is a lot of evidence that shows Bhaskara developed bijagahita number of the principles of differential calculus and that he bhzskara have been the first to come up with both the derivative and the differential coefficient as well as differential calculus. These small circles then orbit the Earth or some other planetary body. He looked at various branches of mathematics, such as algebra, trigonometry, and calculus.


Bhaskara did a lot of important work in bijaganitx and developed ways to use the principles of differential calculus to deal with problems in astronomy. In addition to indeterminate equations, the book looks at quadratic, and simple equations as well as methods for evaluating surds.

Bhaskara calculated that it would take One of his discoveries in this book was spherical trigonometry. Bhaskara also covered cosmography, geography and the seasons. Bhaskara wrote a number of books but the work that has had the bhakara influence in the mathematics field is the Siddhanta Siromani Crown of Treatises.

Lilavatihas thirteen chapters and covers a number of topics. He also came up with the beginnings of infinitesimal calculus and made a number of contributions in the field of integral calculus. Bgaskara are simply square roots that are not whole numbers. Bhaskara looked at different methods to perform calculations, such bijqganita multiplication and squaring, and he also wrote about the rule of three. He was the first person to realize this.

This is a field in spherical geometry and is very important in the fields of astronomy, geodesy, and navigation.

His father was a famous astrologer and mathematician by the name of Mahesvara. Bhaskara came to the conclusion that if you divide one by zero, you will end up with an infinite number of pieces. His Writings Bhaskara wrote a number of books but the work that has had the most influence in the mathematics field is the Siddhanta Bijaganlta Crown of Treatises.

Bhaskara is famous for a number of innovations in mathematics. Bhaskara based his astronomy on the earlier work by Aryabhata. The only way to prevent the death was to make sure that the marriage happened exactly at a specific time.


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.

8 V. Bhaskaracharya II

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 bhqskara movement is uniform. 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.

In this book, Bhaskara wrote about his discovery that each positive number can have both a positive square root and a negative square root. He knew about the sine table and relationships between various trigonometric functions. Bhaskara also looked at ways to expand upon some of the work done by Brahmagupta.

Bhaskara showed that when a planet is at its farthest or at its closest from Earth, the equation of the centre vanishes. It used rings and hoops to depict the equator and the tropics. In the Goladhyaya, Bhaskara looked at the sphere. The Ganitadhyaya The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy. The Bijaganita The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters.

The work Bhaskara did in the book on indeterminate equations and integer solutions is the most important material in the book.
