Product description

Review

"The book is an important contribution to a long scholarly tradition, and the author's effort and expertise are both first-rate. Translation and commentary projects like this one are the indispensable contributions that most influence and enable future progress in better understanding this ancient history and culture."

(Dennis W. Duke, Florida State University)

"This book is a very important contribution to the history of mathematics. The author deserves compliments for his efforts and expertise. The book also demonstrates the knowledge and wisdom of ancient Indian mathematicians and their mathematical skills. There is an urgent need to preserve original manuscripts in Sanskrit. The reviewer strongly recommends Knudsen's book to all those who are interested in the history of astronomy and mathematics."

(Girish Kumar Ramaiah Zentralblatt Math)

"This is a scholarly yet readily readable work of great merit... In this text the multi-layered complexities have been superbly unpicked with the author's crystal clear writing giving interpretations in a rigorous yet accessible style. The original poetry is often crafted by the translator into a pleasing English verse... This is a fascinating a well written scholarly text which acts as a welcome reminder that the Indian astronomical tradition is of great mathematical value independent of its parallel applications in Indian astrology."

(Kevin J. Davis Mathematical Gazette)

"Opens new doors of research, understanding and challenges for the scholarly community."

(S.L. Singh Mathematical Reviews)

"... this is an admirable piece of work and a very welcome addition to the English-language literature on Indian astral sciences."

(Journal for the History of Astronomy)
