## Description

V. Lakshmikantham, S. Leela, J. Vasundhara Devi

This is the first book on the history of mathematics that attempts to report the immense activity and contribution of Bharat (greater India) which has been ignored in existing books. This volume also provides the true origin of mathematical knowledge correcting the existing historical distortions and rectifies the chronology of important early mathematicians of India so that priority of discovery can be properly attributed and acknowledged. The authors detail and emphasise the work of the fourteenth century Indian astronomer and mathematician Madhava, who discovered the limiting process to infinity before Newton and Leibnitz. Also a balanced view of the origin and history of mathematics is introduced by incorporating the extensive mathematical knowledge relative to the origin and continuity of mathematical research.
