Bhaskara worked at the astronomical observatory at Ujjain and soon became the head of the facility.

Bija ganita [of Bhāskara Āchārya]: or The algebra of the Hindus. [Tr.] by E …

bijafanita An armillary sphere is a model showing the globe. Bkjaganita 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.

These small circles then orbit the Earth or some other planetary body. Sometimes the last two books Grahaganita and Goladhyaya have been treated as the only two parts of the Siddhanta Bijagqnitawhile the first two books Lilavati and Bijaganita are viewed as two bijaanita books.

Bhaskara looked at the mean longitudes and the true longitudes of the planets as well as latitudes. He also came up with the beginnings of infinitesimal calculus and made a number of contributions in the field of integral calculus. It used rings and hoops to depict the equator and the tropics.

To ensure that the marriage happened at the correct time, Bhaskara made a small hole in a cup and placed it in a pail filled with water. Bhaskara also used the law of gravity that was proposed bhsakara 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. 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.

The only way to prevent the death was to make sure that the marriage happened exactly at a specific time. Bhaskara calculated that it would take In addition to indeterminate equations, the book looks at quadratic, and simple equations as well as methods for evaluating surds.

At first glance this might seem to be correct, but buaskara looked at from the terms of multiplication, it becomes obvious that it is wrong. 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.

He also goes by the name of Bhaskara or Bhaskaracharya, which means Bhaskara the Teacher.

While she was looking at the device, a pearl from bijagantia dress fell into the cup and blocked the hole. Bhaskara II is a famous Indian mathematician.

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. He also discussed astronomical instruments and the difficulties involved with making astronomical calculations.

He bimaganita studied and wrote about astronomy. Bhaskara also covered cosmography, geography and the seasons. The Bikaganita The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy. He looked at planetary mean motion and methods for calculating ellipses and lunar crescents. From this, Bhaskara concluded that at some point, the differential of the equation of the centre is equal to zero. Bhaskara is famous for a number of innovations in mathematics.


In fact, half of his most famous work dealt with mathematical astronomy.

Bijaganita – Wikipedia

Both the Golahhyaya and the Ganitadhyaya show that Bhaskara had strong knowledge of trigonometry. This book consists of twelve chapters and covers a variety of astronomical topics.

Bhaskara, as did other Indian mathematicians, wrote in verse.

Bhaskara had calculated how long it would take for the cup to fill and sink. The beginnings of infinitesimal calculus and mathematical analysis can be seen in his work.

Bijaganita | work by Bhaskara II |

Bhaskara viewed the solar system as being heliocentric it revolves around the sun and the planets have an elliptical orbit. Bhaskara is viewed as one of the greatest mathematicians of medieval India and his work has influenced both Indian and Islamic mathematicians as well as European bjjaganita.

Bhaskara seems to have an actual interest in trigonometry and used it to calculate the sines of and degree angles.

Bhaskara covered a number of other topics in Lilavati as well, such bahskara trigonometry and mensuration, and even included a number of problems that readers of the book could work on. It has verses and is divided into four parts; although, sometimes the books are viewed as separate books. To make Lilavati feel better, Bhaskara wrote her a book about mathematics.
