Title Review

Prof. G. S. Pandey reveals the achievements of ancient Indians in the field of Mathematics by focusing on the contributions of Acharya Varahmihira (fifth-sixth centuries AD). He provides a systematic study of Varahmihira’s life and times and of developments in Mathematics—algebraic equations, permutations and combinations—in ancient India. He highlights the role of Varahmihira and his school in this development. He discusses algebraic models used in the Paitamaha Siddhanta and Vasishtha Siddhanta and then delves into development of algebra at Varahmihira’s gurukula and the division of time and measuring instruments used by him. It attempts to address ambiguities relating to the scholar’s life and contributions.
