Topic: Lilavati


In the News (Wed 26 Nov 14)

  
  Lilavati - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lilavati (also Leelavati) was Indian mathematician Bhaskara's treatise on mathematics in the twelfth century.
As the hour approached, Lilavati in her eagerness leaned over the water clock to watch its progress; a pearl from her headdress fell into the clock and blocked the hole.
Joy and happiness is indeed ever increasing in this world for those who have Lilavati clasped to their throats, decorated as the members are with neat reduction of fractions, multiplication and involution, pure and perfect as are the solutions, and tasteful as is the speech which is exemplified.

 Bhaskara - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lilavati, his book on arithmetic, is the source of interesting legends that assert that it was written for his daughter, Lilavati.
Lilavati is divided into 13 chapters and covers many branches of mathematics, arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and a little trigonometry and mensuration.
Furthermore the Lilavati contained excellent recreative problems and it is thought that Bhaskara's intention may have been that a student of 'Lilavati' should concern himself with the mechanical application of the method.
