Cambridge Scientific Publishers, Jan 1, 2005 - Mathematics - 160 pages

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 stress the work of the fourteenth century Indian astronomer and mathematician, Madhava, who discovered the limiting process to infinity before Newton and Leibnitz. In this book the authors introduce a balanced view of the origin and history of mathematics by Incorporating the extensive mathematical knowledge relative to the origin and continuity of mathematical research so as to present the true facts of history.
