Came across this article which hints at the Indian Contribution to the Mathematical World.

The article also has a good explanation of the Concept of Zero.

I just realized how important Knowledge Transfer is :))

It is said that for Greeks & Romans largest numbers used were 106, where as people of Vedic times used numbers as big as 10 to the power of 53. Not just algebra but trigonometry and calculus has originated in India. Sadly our teaching & research is western specific, we don't want to know what Sridhara Charya did with the quadratic equations in 11th century.

True. Am currently poring over Vedic Math by Acharya Krsna Tirthaji. Amazing to know that we have had such advanced methods of calculation!
