Abstract

While it is well known that India has a long and rich tradition in Mathematics, it is hard to come by books which explain the specific contributions in detail, trace the evolution and continuity of mathematical ideas, and survey the historical and social background in which research in mathematics was carried out. Divakaran’s excellent book, which is readable, scholarly and well-researched, fills this need.
