Bhaskaracharya Study Chair

 

About Us:

Bhaskaracharya II was a 12th century Indian Mathematician. He was also a renowned astronomer who accurately defined many astronomical quantities. Known as greatest mathematician of medieval India, he filled many of the gaps in his predecessor Brahmagupta’s work. Bhaskaracharya himself gave the details of his birth in a verse in the Arya metre according to which he was born in 1114 near Vijjadavida (Bijjaragi of Vijayapura in modern Karnataka). The chair for Bhaskaracharya Studies and Research was instituted in Karnataka State Women’s University, Vijayapura by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of Karnataka (vide G.O. No. ವಿಯ ಇ 210 ಮಿತ್ರಮ 2015, ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ದಿನಾಂಕ 20-07-2015)  in the year 2015 with the financial grant of Rs. 1.00 Crore.
