About the Book: 

Do you know how mathematics came to be? Numbers, shapes, lines, equations: you either love them or you hate them; but do you know the story behind these? How did we go from lines on a piece of bark to million-row matrices that can only be processed by supercomputers? Mathematics is the foundation on which technology has been built and advanced over the years. The contributions to this growth have come from all over the world and India has been at the forefront of mathematical progress, with its discovery of zero and the modern number system. History of Mathematics brings to life this journey through the evolution of the art and science of Mathematics, both in India and the western world, with a fascinating blend of fact and anecdote.
