was published in a book Cultural Foundations of Mathematics.
It established that the Jesuit priests took trigonometric tables and planetary models from the Kerala mathematicians of the Aryabhata school and exported them to When the Europeans received the Indian calculus, they couldnt understand it properly because the Indian philosophy of mathematics is different from the Western philosophy of mathematics.
It was easy to use and moreover it facilitated the conception of the highest imaginable numbers.
This is why it was so well suited to the most exuberant numerical or arithmetical-cosmogonic speculations of Indian culture.""The Indian people were the only civilization to take the decisive step towards the perfection of numerical notation.
A favourite subject of theirs was Indian mathematics..." etc.
where he gave a full account of the Hindu numerals which was the first to expound the system with its digits 0,1,2,3,....,9 and decimal place value which was a fairly recent arrival from India.
Knowledge of the Hindu system spread through the Arab world, reaching the Arabs of the West in Spain before the end of the tenth century.
These symbols were gradually taken up by Arabs and came to Western attention in the 13The translation of De numero Indorum slightly predates the man who is credited with introducing the system to the West. In the comments in his book Liberabaci, written in 1202, he states that " pages 227-228. Mohammed ibn-Musa al-Khwarizmi, ..., who died sometime before 850, wrote more than a half dozen astronomical and mathematical works, of which the earliest were probably based on the In this work, based presumably on an Arabic translation of Brahmagupta, al-Khwarizmi gave so full an account of the Hindu numerals that he probably is responsible for the widespread but false impression that our system of numeration is Arabic in origin. Many Arab authors took up the subjects communicated to them by the Hindus and worked them out in original compositions , commentaries and extracts.
Thus we can see why poetry has played such a preponderant role in all of Indian culture and Sanskrit literature. In 2001 he won the prestigious Berwick Prize of the London Mathematical Society, which is awarded every two years to reward the best mathematical research by a mathematician under forty. Indians used it long before the West did," said Du Sautoy.
"When the West had Roman numerals there was no zero and that is why they were so clumsy.
So much so that Indian culture regarded the science of numbers as the noblest of its arts...
A thousand years ahead of Europeans, Indian savants knew that the zero and infinity were mutually inverse notions."The real inventors of [the numeral system], which is no less important than such feats as the mastery of fire, the development of agriculture, or the invention of the wheel, writing or the steam engine, were the true birthplace of our numerals, Ifrah salutes the Indian researchers saying that the "..inventors of this fundamental discovery, which is no less important than such feats as the mastery of fire, the development of agriculture, or the invention of the wheel, writing or the steam engine, were the mathematicians and astronomers of the Indian civilization: scholars who, unlike the Greeks, were concerned with practical applications and who were motivated by a kind of passion for both numbers and numerical calculations.""It was only after the eighth century BC, and doubtless due to the influence of the Indian Buddhist missionaries, that Chinese mathematicians introduced the use of zero in the form of a little circle or dot (signs that originated in India),...".
