Bijaganita Bhaskara II Archives – Famous Mathematicians

Bhaskara covered a number of other topics in Lilavati as well, such as trigonometry and mensuration, and even included a number of problems that readers of the book could work on.

In fact, half of his most famous work dealt with mathematical astronomy. He was the first person to realize this. The work Bhaskara did in the book on nhaskara equations and integer solutions is the most important material in the book. Bhaskara also discovered spherical trigonometry. The bhaskaar of infinitesimal calculus and mathematical analysis can be seen in his work.

The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters.

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 looked at both lunar and solar eclipses. To make Lilavati feel better, Bhaskara wrote her a book about mathematics.

Bijaganita (elements Of Algebra)

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

He looked at various branches of mathematics, such as algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. The Bijaganita The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters. Bhaskara based his astronomy on the earlier work by Aryabhata. The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy.


He placed the cup in the water so that it would sink at the exact time Lilavati was supposed to get married. The book deals with definitions and terms as well as looking at the properties of zero. In addition to indeterminate equations, the book looks at quadratic, and simple equations as well as methods for evaluating surds.

In the Goladhyaya, Bhaskara looked at the sphere. Bhaskara had calculated how long it would take for the cup to fill and sink.

This observatory was the top mathematical center in India and excellent mathematicians, such as Varahamihira and Brahmagupta, had also worked at the observatory. The problem was that Indian mathematicians were not able to accept the fact that it is impossible to divide by 0.

His knowledge of solving equations and number systems were at such a high level that it would take European mathematicians hundreds of years ov attain this level.

The only way to prevent the death was to make sure that the marriage happened exactly at a specific time. Bhaskara also looked at ways to expand upon some of the work done by Brahmagupta. In fact, Bhaskara bhasara taught mathematics to his son Loksamudra. Bhaskara realized that when dividing one by a fraction, the smaller the fraction gets, the more pieces are created.

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. An armillary sphere is a model showing the globe. Bhaskara calculated that it would take The Goladhyaya In the Goladhyaya, Bhaskara looked at the sphere. The book was written in A. Bhaskara viewed the solar system as being heliocentric it revolves around the sun and the planets have an elliptical orbit.


It has verses and is divided into four parts; although, sometimes the books are viewed as separate books. In addition to his work on positive and negative numbers, Bhaskara also looked methods to determine unknown quantities and did more work on the number zero. He also came up with the beginnings of infinitesimal calculus and made a number of contributions in the field of integral calculus. These small circles then orbit the Earth or some other planetary body. Sometimes the last two books Grahaganita and Goladhyaya have been treated as gijaganita only two parts of the Siddhanta Siromaniwhile the first two books Lilavati and Bijaganita are viewed as two independent books.

The rules that Bhaskara wrote about were the same rules that European mathematicians would come up with almost five hundred years later.

Bhaskara died in at Ujjain. Bhaskara also looked at negative numbers and surds in this book. At first glance this might seem to be correct, but when looked at from the terms of multiplication, it becomes obvious that it is wrong. Bhaskara, as did other Indian mathematicians, wrote in verse. Bijagqnita also used the law of gravity that was proposed by Brahmagupta.

According to the story, Bhaskara made a horoscope of his daughter and found that her husband would die shortly after the couple were married. Bhaskara II is a famous Indian mathematician. Bhaskara worked at the astronomical observatory at Ujjain and if became the head of the facility.
