All the inventions and discoveries in the field of mathematics would have meant nothing had it not been for the introduction of zero to mathematics. And do you know who introduced zero to maths? Well, it was an Indian mathematician and genius Brahmagupta. Born in 598 AD, he not just made known the concept of zero in arithmetic but also explained how to find cube and cube root of an integer. But is that all what Indian mathematicians gave to the field of maths? Modestly no! Aryabhatta, one of the earliest Indian mathematicians, first announced to the world that the earth was spherical and that it revolved around the sun. Furthermore, he was the first to state explicitly that a year comprises of 365 days and the first to work on place value system using letters to signify numbers. Other prominent Indian mathematicians include Srinivasa Ramanujan, Satyendra Nath Bose, Bhaskara, and so on. Interestingly, prominent Indian mathematicians have spanned across many centuries, dating back from the Indus Valley civilization and Vedas to modern times. Apart from legendary mathematicians, Indian soil has been home to some of the prodigious mathematic talent such as Shakuntala Devi. Fondly called human computer, she was said to have possessed unbelievable mental calculating skills. Check this section to know in details about famous Indian mathematicians, their life and their contribution to maths.
