National Science Day: Remembering Heroes of India
Aryabhatta was born in 476 A.D. in Patliputra in Magadha, which is now known as Patna in Bihar. His famous thesis, called the ‘Aryabhatta-Siddhanta’, is a compendium of mathematical and astronomical hypotheses that have been discovered to be quite accurate in contemporary mathematics. This extraordinary man boasted an intellect of immense proportions and continues to baffle many mathematicians of today. Aryabhatta is considered to be one of the mathematicians who changed the course of mathematics and astronomy to a great extent. His notable contributions to the world of science and mathematics include the theory that the earth rotates on its axis, explanations of the solar and lunar eclipses, solving of quadratic equations, place value system with zero, and an approximation of pi(p).
