Author(s): Abul Basar, Bhavanari Satyanarayana, Poonam Kumar Sharma and Mohammad Yahya Abbasi

Abstract: Indian mathematics has its deep roots in the Vedas, different from what is known as Vedic Mathematics. Vedic age gave rise to a new era of progress in the field of Science, Technology and Development. The Hindu Scripture Vedas is synonymous with all kinds of original source of knowledge and intellectual wisdom in the universe leading to modern knowlege in modern mathematics. Indian mathematicians made tremendous contributions to the entire world of Mathematics and Science. Decimal number system as well as the invention of zero (0) are among the greatest contributions of Indian mathematicians. The theory of trigonometry, Mathematical Modelling, Algebra, algorithm, modern arithmetic, sine and cosine functions leading to modern trigonometry, Diophantine equation, square root, cube root, negative numbers are also developed by Indian mathematicians. In this review article, the work of some of the renowned Indian mathematicians from Indus Valley civilization and the Vedas to modern times are covered in short with the hope that it may reveal hidden fundamental mathematical ideas as basic ideal tools which may usefully motivate for further research work in every domain of mathematical sciences, natural and applied sciences, engineering and social sciences. Moreover, there are many more remarkable Indian mathematicians who contributed to the origin of mathematical sciences. They have made several general contributions to mathematics that have significantly influenced scientists and mathematicians in the modern times.
