Description

This book includes 57 selected articles that highlight the major contributions of Professor Radha Charan Gupta-a doyen of history of mathematics-written on a variety of important topics pertaining to mathematics and astronomy in India. It is divided into ten parts. Part 1 presents two articles offering an overview of Professor Gupta's oeuvre. The four articles in part II convey the importance of studies in the history of mathematics. Parts III-VII constituting 33 articles, feature a number of articles on a variety of topics, such as geometry, trigonometry, algebra, combinatorics and spherical trigonometry, which not only reveal the breadth and depth of Professor Gupta's work, but also highlight his deep commitment to the promotion of studies in the history of mathematics. The ten articles of part VIII, present interesting bibliographical sketches of a few veteran historians of mathematics and astronomy in India. Part IX examines the dissemination of mathematical knowledge across different civilisations. The last part presents an up-to-date bibliography of Gupta's work. It also includes a tribute to him in Sanskrit composed in eight verses.
