The Lilavati focuses on arithmetic and according to a story that was written in a Persian translation of the book, the book was written for his daughter, who was named Lilavati.

Bhaskara II is a famous Indian mathematician. In addition to his work on positive and negative numbers, Bhaskara also looked methods to determine unknown quantities and did more work on the number zero. To ensure that the marriage happened at the correct time, Bhaskara made a small hole in a cup and placed it in a pail filled with water.

It is known that he was born in A. Bhaskara viewed the solar system as being heliocentric it revolves around the sun and the planets have an elliptical orbit. This book consists of twelve chapters and covers a variety of astronomical topics.

Bhaskara also used the law of gravity that bijaganuta proposed by Brahmagupta. At first glance this bijaaganita seem to be correct, but when looked at from the terms of multiplication, it becomes obvious that it is wrong. Bhaskara seems to have an actual interest in trigonometry and used it to calculate the sines of and degree angles.

The only way to prevent the death was to make sure that the marriage happened exactly at a specific time.


Bhaskara had calculated how long it would take for the cup to fill and sink.

The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy. He placed the cup in the water so that it would sink at the exact time Lilavati was supposed to get married. Bhaskara also covered cosmography, geography and the seasons. This would mean that all numbers are the same, which is obviously not bimaganita.

Sometimes the last two books Grahaganita and Goladhyaya have been treated as the only two parts of the Siddhanta Siromaniwhile the first two vhaskara Lilavati and Bijaganita are viewed as two independent books.

Bhaskara showed that when a planet is at its farthest or at its closest from Earth, the equation o the centre vanishes. The work Bhaskara did in the book on indeterminate equations and integer solutions is the most important material in the book.

Bhaskara discussed the conjunction of the planets with each other and with fixed stars as well as with the orbits of both the Sun and the Moon. His Bijaanita Bhaskara wrote a number of books but the work that has had the most influence in the mathematics field is bijgaanita Siddhanta Siromani Crown of Treatises.

While she was looking at the device, a pearl from her dress fell into the cup and blocked the hole. Even though Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz are viewed as the founders bijaganit differential and integral calculus, there is a lot of evidence that shows Bhaskara developed a number of the principles of differential calculus and that he may have been the first to come up with both the derivative and the differential coefficient as well as differential bijagganita.

From this, Bhaskara concluded that at some point, the differential of the equation of the centre is equal to zero. Each section deals with a different area of mathematics and astronomy.


The Ganitadhyaya The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy. Bhaskara came to the conclusion that if you divide one by zero, you will end up with an infinite number of pieces.

An epicycle model means that some planets, for example, the sun and the moon, move in small circles. Bhaskara did a lot of important work in calculus and developed ways to use the principles of differential calculus to deal with problems in astronomy. The beginnings of infinitesimal bijavanita and mathematical analysis can be seen in his work. Bhaskara realized that when dividing one by a fraction, the smaller the fraction gets, the more pieces are created.

Bhaskara is viewed as one of the greatest mathematicians of medieval India and his work has influenced both Indian and Islamic mathematicians as well as European ones. In fact, Bhaskara also taught mathematics to his son Loksamudra.

One of his discoveries in this book was spherical trigonometry.

Bhaskara is famous for a number of innovations in mathematics. It has verses and is divided into four parts; although, sometimes the books are bijafanita as separate books. The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters.

In addition, the book covers an epicycle model of the planets. Bhaskara also looked at ways to expand upon some of the work done by Brahmagupta.

Bhaskara died in at Ujjain.
