The Coming of Age of Mathematics in India

  • Raghavan Narasimhan

Abstract

To most people, the words “Indian Mathematics” probably suggest, first, the romantic figure of Srinivasa Ramanujan and then, perhaps, the contributions of the ancients (Aryabhatta, Bhaskara, Brahmagupta and so on). To a professional mathematician of today, they might also suggest the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Bombay and the many excellent mathematicians it has produced. However, during the period 1900–1950, there were several centres of mathematical activity in India about which people outside India, and even most Indians, know very little.
