    Abstract

    Mathematics has been considered as very important subject since ancient times. We find very elaborate proof of this in Vedas, which were compiled around 6000 BC. The concept of division, addition etc. was used even that time. Concepts of zero and infinite were also there. We also find roots of Beez Ganit in Vedas. When Indian Beez Ganit reached Arab, they called it Algebra. Algebra was name of the Arabic book that described Indian concepts. This knowledge reached Europe from there. This fact was well known to intellectuals of India, which is why they gave special importance to the development of Mathematics, right from the beginning. When this knowledge was negligible in Arab and Europe, India had acquired great achievements. This paper discusses development of mathematics in India from ancient time. Key words: Mathematics, India, Mathematicians, History
