Aryabhatta

Aryabhatta I, born on 476 AD in Patliputra in Magadha is now modern Patna in Bihar. There are several tales of claim for his origins.

His other works include theorems on trigonometry, arithmetic, algebra, quadratic equations and the sine table.

He also wrote essays on astronomy. For example he was aware that the earth spins on its axis, and that it moves round the sun and the moon rotates round the earth. He discusses about the locations of the planets in relation to its movement around the sun. Aryabhatta refers to the light of the planets and the moon as reflections from the sun. He goes as far as to explain the eclipse of the moon and the sun, day and night the contours of the earth, the light of the year exactly as 365 days.

If one is to study the history of mathematics, Aryabhatta of Bihar outshines everyone.
