Devnani deserves a Bharat Ratna for discovering that the law of gravity was, in fact, discovered by Indian scientist Brahmagupta
II one thousand years before Issac Newton.
"In Mathematics, we have the glorious tradition of Baudhaya, Bhaskara, Brahmagupta
, in 628 A.D., contains a definition of zero as a - a = o.
Among the topics are rotating decimals, 25-point affine geometry, the algebra of electrical circuitry, random walks in trees, and Brahmagupta
's cyclic quadrilaterals.
Zero first started being used as an actual number around 458 AD in India by Hindu astronomer and mathematician Brahmagupta
. He devised the methods by which zero is reached in calculations, for example 6 - 6 = 0, and also how zero is used in equations.
A Hindu mathematician, Brahmagupta
(b.598) generated means of predicting Pythagorean Triples through the study of quadrilaterals.
The topics include the Sulvasutras, mathematics of Jains, Brahmagupta
, Bhaskara II, Kerala astronomers, and commentators in the 16th and 17th centuries on Bhaskara II.
developed formulas for determining products of sums of squares and areas of cyclic quadrilaterals.
