In Bordeaux he began his first serious mathematical researches and in 1629 he gave a copy of his restoration of Apollonius's Plane loci to one of the mathematicians there. Based on his very unique work, he received a great deal of acclaim. He also studied catoptrics, or the mathematical functions of mirrors. He again applied deductive reasoning to understand the principles behind mirrors. Given that he was building on the knowledge and understanding of Brahmagupta, it is not surprising that Bhaskaracharya understood zero and negative numbers.
But decimal place value must have been in use at least among mathematical professionals no later than the early 1st millennium ce. A Modern Introduction to Ancient Indian Mathematics.

His works are published in Greek then translated into many different languages due to the fact he was a popular mathematician writer. कुछ विद्वानों का मानना है कि उनका जन्म बंगाल में हुआ था, जबकि अन्य मानते हैं कि उनका जन्म दक्षिण भारत में हुआ था.
Archived from on 5 January 2012. Mathematicians are concerned with logic, space, transformations, numbers and more general ideas which encompass these concepts. Consider the sequence 1, , , , ,. The Pythagorean Theorem is important in mathematics, physics, and astronomy and has practical applications in surveying. This algorithm became the standard method for solving first-order diophantine equations in Indian mathematics, and initially the whole subject of algebra was called kuṭṭaka-gaṇita or simply kuṭṭaka.

An increasing number of complete treatises on mathematical subjects survived from this period, beginning about the middle of the 1st millennium, in contrast to the scattered allusions and fragments of the ancient period. Astronomy Across Cultures: The History of Non-Western Astronomy. Information about these books was given the works of writing around 1150 , Makkibhatta writing in 1377 , and Raghavabhatta writing in 1493.
