The earliest expression of mathematical
understanding is inextricably linked with the origin
of Hinduism. Mathematics formed an important
part of the Vedas - the original Hindu scriptures -
associated with ritual activities and the study of
'ganit' or mathematics was given special
importance in the Vedic period.
Mathematics in Early Hindu Texts
Arithmetic operations including squares, cubes
and roots are mentioned in the 'Narad Vishnu
Purana' attributed to Ved Vyas (c 1000 BC), and
the 1000 BC Vedic text 'Vedang Jyotish' says: "Just
as the feathers of a peacock and the jewel-stone
of a snake are placed at the highest point of the
body, so is the position of mathematics the
highest amongst all branches of the Vedas and
the Shastras."
Seminal Figures in Mathematics
Hindu mathematicians, from Vedic times to the
modern age have been in the forefront of making
seminal contributions in the field mathematics.
