## Who is Aryabhatta|Birth place of Aryabhatta

**Who is Aryabhatta **:- A great Indian mathematician and Indian astronomer from the classical age of **Indian mathematics** and **Indian astronomer**. Are you guys know the name of arybhatta is misspell Actually its **spelled as Aryabhata**. **Varahamihira**, the childlike coetaneous of** Aryabhatta** also mentions him as “**Aryabhata**”.

As well as, **Bhaskara I **too mentions him as **Aryabhata**. It seems as if the correct name was Aryabhata and not Aryabhatta.

**In the Patna** there is a university called** university of Nalanda** which had a **astronomical observatory**, **Aryabhata** might be head of Nalanda university as well as **Aryabhatta** is also reputed to have set up observatory at the sun temple in** Teregana** present in bihar Arybhatta works and his discoveries.

Are you guys here its means you are enjoying to read and more eager to know about Arybhatta work.

If yes then continue read and take Knowledge about the Who is Aryabhatta **a great mathematician astrologer** and **Indian Arybhatta**.

All the topic covered from the different different articles and website :- **Who is Aryabhatta **

### Aryabhatta Great discoveries and work

**Aryabhata** is th**e Author of several books** of Mathematics and astronomy but some book are lost. His famous work is** Aryabhatiya **a compendium of mathematics and astronomy. He is Indian **mathematical literature** and has survived to the modern times.

The Mathematical part of the **Aryabhatiya **covers **Airthmetic**, **Algebra** ,**Plane Trigonometry** and **spherical trigonometry**. He also works on contains continued **Fraction** , **quadratic equation** ,** sum of power series** and a** tables of sines**. The next work is **Arya-sidhhanta** which is also known as **lost work of Aryabhata**.

**Aryabhatiya** is the book wrote by Aryabhatta.

So the guys now we will discover some details about the book **Arybhatiya**. Arybhatia is the only way to find the work of Arybhatta because he mention every details of his work in Arbhatiya. Arybhatta is not given the name of his book, **Bhaskara** calls it **Ashmakatantra**. It is also occasionlly referred to as** Arya shatas astha**.

Because of there is** 108 text versis **in text .it is written in** Sutra literature** Aryabhatiya divided into four chapter also known as 4 Padas.

**Gitikapada ( 13 verses )** :- Kalpa, manvantra and yuga its present a cosmology different from earlier text such as **lagadha’s vedanga Jyotisha**. Also a table of sines are mention. Its described that the duration of the planetary revolution during a **mahayug** is given as 4.32 million years.

**Ganitapada (33 Verses ) :- **Covering** mensuration arithmetic ** and** Geometric Progression **, **Quadratic equation**, **indeterminate equation kuttaka** , **simultaneous**.

**Kalkkriyapada ( 25 verses ) :-** In this chapter determine the different time of unit and method for determining the position of planets for a given day , calculation of month ( **adhikamAsa **) **kShaya-tithis** and a seven day week with names for the days of week.

**Golapada ( 50 verses ) :-** In this Chapter define the details about the** Geometric / trigonometric **aspects of the **celestial Sphere** ,** celestial equator** , **node** , **ecliptic feature** , **shape of the earth** , **cause of day and night**, **rising of zodiacal signs of horizon**, etc.

In the **Aryabhatiya** the description of **relativity of motion**. He expressed this relativity thus “Just as a man in a boat moving forward sees the stationary objects (on the shore) as moving backward, just so are the stationary stars seen by the people on earth as moving exactly towards the west”

**Aryabhatta mathematical discoveries**

**Arybhatta place value system** :- Place value system is the one of the famous discovery of **Aryabhata**. But firstly place value system is seen in **3rd Century** in Bakhshali manuscript ,It is a ancient Indian manuscript made up with Bark of Birch in 1881 in** village if Bakhshali**. In this clearly shown place of number.

But while he did not use Zero, the French mathematician, **Georges Ifrahe** argues that knowledge of zero was implicit in **Aryabhata’s** place value system as a place holder for the powers of ten with **Null coefficient**.

Arybhatta did not use any** Brahimi** numerals instead of he use **alphabetic letters** to denote the number. Arybhatta follows the tradition of **Sanskrit** from the **Vedic times**.

**Value of pi **:- The approximation for pi is the second greatest of Aryabhatta he found the approx value of pi and also discover that the **pi** is also **irrational number**. In the **Second Pada** of **Arybhatiya** he wrote “Add four to 100, multiply by eight, and then add 62,000. By this rule the circumference of a circle with a diameter of 20,000 can be approached.

This implies that for a circle whose diameter is 20000, the circumference will be 62832 the value of pi is correct upto three decimal point. Value **3.1416**

**Trigonometry :- **In his pada **ganitpada** he gave the area of triangle. **Aryabhata** discussed his work by presenting the concept of **sine** name as **ardha jya**. Which means half chord when **Arabic** **translator** translate from **sanskrit** its name as** jihba**.

**Algebra :- **In** Aryabhatiya**, Aryabhata provided elegant results for the summation of series of squares and cubes.

**Arybhatta Astronomical Discoveries **

Hey the reader are there its mean you really like to read more about Aryabhatta. If yes continue read and support my blog post.

**Motion of solar system :- Aryabhata** correctly insisted that the earth rotates about its axis daily, and that the **apparent movement** of the stars is a **relative motion **caused by the **rotation of the earth**, contrary to the then-prevailing view, that the sky rotated. This is indicated in the first chapter of the * Aryabhatiya*, where he gives the number of rotations of the earth in a

*yuga*,and made more explicit in his

*chapter.*

**gola**Aryabhata also describe the **geocentric model** of **solar system** in which sun and moon are each carried by an epicycles. In this model, which is also found in the ** Paitāmahasiddhānta **(c. CE 425), as well the motions of the planets are each governed by two epicycles, a smaller

*(slow) and a larger*

**mand**a**(fast).**

*śīghra*Aryabhata also correctly ascribed the luminosity of the Moon and planets to reflected sunlight.

**Eclipses :- **Aryabhatta explained solar and lunar eclipses , He explain it by term of shadow cast by and falling earth. The lunar eclipse occurs when moons enters in earth shadows. Aryabhatta discussed about the length of size and then provide the size of lunar eclipses and after that some astrologer improve it.

**Aryabhatta satellite **:-

The First Indian satellite name As Arybhatta for the honour of great mathematician and astronomer. Its was launched in 19th April 1975 from Kapustin Yar , A Russian Rocket launch and development site .Its is built by ISRO .

The launch come from and agreement by **Indian** and **soviet union Russia** by **UR Rao**,It allowed the **USSR** to use** Indian ports** for tracking ships and **launching vessels** in return for launching various different Indian satellites.

It was built to conduct experiments in X-ray astronomy, aeronomics, and solar physics.

**Conclusion about Aryabhatta **

**Who is Aryabhatta** :- Aryabhatta is a **great personality** and his discoveries in mathematics and astrology is give a core and** opportunity to scientist** for find new discoveries in field of mathematics and astrology. **Aryabhatta** did not discovered the **some theories **but he make its correct . The first India satellite was launched by russia which name is **Arybhatta** , Its shows the great respect and how much important is **Aryabhatta **for us.

Evidence suggests that Aryabhatta knew about “**zero**”. This is evident from the algorithms for decimals and a thorough knowledge of place value. Brahmagupta came many years after Aryabhatta. Hence it is evident that both already knew about zero.

He was born in 476 AD. in the village of Kusumapura now a day Patna , He passed away in 550 AD .

The name of Aryabhatta’s father and mother is **Sri** **Bandu** **Bapu Athawale** and** Srimati Honsabai Banda Athawale** respectively.
