INDIAN MATHEMATICIANS
It is no doubt that the world today is
greatly indebted to the contributions made by Indian mathematicians. One of the
most important contribution made by them was the introduction of decimal system
as well as the invention of zero. Here are some the famous Indian
mathematicians dating back from Indus Valley civilization and Vedas to Modern
times. 
Aryabhata
Aryabhata worked on the place value system
using letters to signify numbers and stating qualities. He discovered the
position of nine planets and stated that these planets revolve around the sun.
He also statedthe correct numberof days in a year that is 365. 
Brahmagupta
The
most significant contribution of Brahmagupta was the introduction of zero(0) to
the mathematics which stood for “nothing”. 
Srinivasa Ramanujan
Srinivasa Ramanujan is one of the
celebrated Indian mathematicians. His important contributions to the field
include HardyRamanujanLittlewood circle method in number theory,
RogerRamanujan’s identities in partition of numbers, work on algebra of
inequalities, elliptic functions, continued fractions, partial sums and
products of hypergeometric series. 
P.C. Mahalanobis
Prasanta Chandra Mahalanobis is the founder of
Indian Statistical Institute as well as the National Sample Surveys for which
he gained international recognition. 
C.R. Rao
Calyampudi Radhakrishna Rao, popularly known
as C R Rao is a well known statistician, famous for his “theory of estimation”.

DR. Kaprekar
DR. Kaprekar discovered several results in
number theory, including a class of numbers and a constant named after him.
Without any formal mathematical education he published extensively and was very
well known in recreational mathematics cricle. 
Harish Chandra
Harish Chandra is famously known for
infinite dimensional group representation theory.  Satyendranath Bose Known
for his collaboration with Albert Einstein. He is best known for his work on
quantum mechanics in the early 1920s, providing the foundation for
Bose–Einstein statistics and the theory of the Bose–Einstein condensate.
