The Bijaganita focuses on algebra and has twelve chapters. In addition, the book covers an epicycle model of the planets. Bhaskara showed that when a planet is at its farthest or at its closest from Siddhanga, the equation of the centre vanishes.

He also studied and wrote about astronomy. He looked at planetary mean motion and methods for calculating ellipses and siromain crescents. The Ganitadhyaya The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy. This book consists of twelve chapters and covers a variety of astronomical topics.

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. Bhaskara, as did other Indian mathematicians, wrote in verse. Bhaskara is viewed as siddhantw of the greatest mathematicians of medieval India sddhanta his work has influenced both Indian and Islamic mathematicians as well as European ones. This book also examined the problems associated with diurnal rotation as well as syzygies.


The rules that Bhaskara wrote about were the same rules that European mathematicians would come up with almost five hundred years siddhahta.

An epicycle model sidehanta that some planets, for example, the sun and the moon, move in small circles. Syzygy is the alignment of three celestial bodies into an almost straight line. His father was a famous astrologer and mathematician by the name of Mahesvara.

Bhaskara died in at Ujjain. It has verses and is divided into four parts; although, sometimes the books are viewed as separate books. Bhaskara II is a famous Indian mathematician. It used rings and hoops to depict the equator and the tropics.

He placed the cup in the water so that it would sink at the exact time Lilavati was supposed to get married. According to the story, Bhaskara made a horoscope of his daughter and found that her husband would die shortly after the couple were married.

In this book, Bhaskara wrote about his discovery that each positive number can have both a positive square root and a negative square root. In fact, Bhaskara also taught mathematics to his son Loksamudra.

This influence can be seen in the writings of various Islamic mathematicians. In fact, half of his most famous work dealt with mathematical astronomy. The book deals with definitions and terms as well as looking at the properties of zero. 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.


Each section deals with a different area of mathematics and astronomy. Surds are simply square roots that are not whole numbers. Bhaskara also discovered spherical trigonometry.

Who wrote ‘Siddhanta Siromani’?

He also came up with the beginnings of infinitesimal calculus and made a number of contributions in the field of integral calculus. Sometimes the last two books Grahaganita and Goladhyaya have been treated as the only two parts of the Siddhanta Siromaniwhile the first two books Lilavati and Bijaganita are viewed as two independent books. He looked at various branches of mathematics, such as algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. The Ganitadhyaya deals with mathematical astronomy.

It is known that he was born in A. Bhaskara is famous for a number of innovations in mathematics.

As a result, Lilavati was siromaji soon after her marriage took place. Bhaskara also looked at ways to expand upon some of the work done by Brahmagupta. Bhaskara also used the law of gravity that was proposed by Brahmagupta. Bhaskara also looked at negative numbers and surds in this book.
