Invention Of Zero


Zero was invented in India by Indian mathematicians dating as early as 5th century. They widely used it in calculations, astronomy and astrology. Zero was spread by Arabians to the Europe and there on it was spread all over. Before this, all Europeans used roman numerical which were difficult to calculate on as they were in the form of Symbols, lengthy and had limits.

Dear Indians, How It Feels When Some One Else Claims Your Pride As Their ??

We Nepalese Feels Same In The Case Of Lord Buddha And Kapilbvastu-Lumbini, Kalapani, Sushta, Darjeeling, Kumaon, Gahrwal .. And Yesss In The Case Of CNN Hero Anuradha Koirala !!

LoL .. And I Heard That You Are Claiming mt. Everest Too .. Bloody Loosers !!

i agree with AVI that zero was only and only invented by a great indian mathematician named Aryabhatt...evn the concept of decimals was given by India...no afgans or turks invented zero...it ws just Aryabhatt

Just to remind you that the mayans also came with the idea of zero. The spaniard scientists were amazed to find that. Cheers

All you guys are wrong. Zero was invented by buddha. He is the great grand father of a sexy chick on my next door. I saw the zero symbol in her ass. She said that was inherited by her from her great grandfather buddha.

WRONG! Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi was not BORN until the year 780.

The Nagari number system of 1 through 0 was invented by Indians and they began using this sytem around the year 600. This number system spread to the Middle East around the year 800.

ZERO was used also used in astronomy & astrology calculations in India as early as 4th century B.C.!!! But the written numbers with zero began usage in 600.

ALGEBRA was invented by a mathematician named Diophantus, who lived in ancient Alexandria around 200 AD, that is a full 600 years before al-Khwarizmi was 20, the year 800.

Al-Khwarizmi was a mathematician, an astronomer, and a math teacher.
He studied the works of EUCLID, Diophantus, and also hindu astronomy and numerical system.

He wrote a book called The book "Hesabolhend," that explained the Indian calculation system, when translated into Latin the title is:
Algorithmi the Numero Indorium.
Algoritmi de numero Indorum written by Al-Khwarizmi is also called Hindu Art of Reckoning, and gave rise to the word algorithm deriving from his name in the title. The work describes the Hindu place-value system of numerals based on 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 0

He did not invent ZERO, Algebra, OR Algorithms. He did study them and write many teaching books about the subjects. He also expanded on some equations.
Algorithms were invented by Euclid and are called the Euclid Algorithm. He is the father of Geometry.
Al-Biruni wrote: What we [the Arabs] use for numerals is a selection of the best and most regular figures in India. (the nagari number system)

YOU arab mother ****ers need to stop lying about that, and besides, Al-Khwarizmi was PERSIAN and was a Zoroastrian in his early life, probably force converted to Islam, and was not an arab in any way shape or form. I am sick of hearing about arabs invented this and that, and they really didn't invent SHIT.

Good point Afghan Banana Man. Since around 3100 bce things have been developing all over, like writing, mathematics, calendars, astronomy, pyramids, etc.


I'm sure India is a great country, just like the rest of our world. They were colonized, and Ghandi helped make things right, and so did the Eastern European, Mother Theresa.



God Bless.

Group:

I still stand with my 2009 comments. Humans will develop technologically at the same rate, unless hindered by outside influences.
The tortilla, roti, nan, parata and flatbread have all the same ingredients and prepared in a like fashion. People use what that have to made it work for them.
Someone said that if humans were born with 12 fingers, we would have a numbering system based on 12 and it would seem natural. 12 dimes to 1 Dollar.
I do wonder about the shape of the number "5" in Arabic. It looks like a zero. Any comments?



yeah that the man arabs always say 'invented MATH' wasn't even born until almost the year 800!! I am tired of Arabs and muslims trying to steal credit for things invented by Indians (and no I am not Indian, I am Swedish/German/Scottish) or other peoples. They routinely degrade India, denounce their inventions, and call them primitive. I'm just sick of it and I am sick of their stupid lies.

Let's be real here!! The only thing the TURKS ever invented was 'invade & conquer' and then later 'kill everyone not Turk, deny this, claim ownership of all their inventions'. Turks have invented NOTHING.

So, what, you didn't read the article? It was invented in India, probably so long ago they don't even know who first brought it up. But they have empirical evidence, based on manuscripts, etc., that 'zero' was already in USE in India long ago - WELL BEFORE THE ARAB man that everyone claims 'invented' zero and then try to act like no one else ever would have or could have invented it.

Factually, most things like written language, math, astronomy, agriculture, the use of saddles, gunpowder & many other things are proven to have been 'being developed' simultaneously across many races, countries, and continents.

Although China is given credit for the invention of gunpowder, the arabs claim that as well & then some historical evidence shows a european man was working on the same combination of ingredients around the same time.

The decimal system was introduced 1,500 years ago by Indian mathematician/astronomer Aryabhata. He sat up in bed one morning and exclaimed, "Sthanam sthanam dasa gunam" (place to place in 10 times in value).
During Aryabhata's time, the Jain text "Lokavibhaga" used decimal place-value system including Sanskrit numeral words for the digits, with word for zero as "shunya" (empty). The first known use of special glyphs for the decimal numbers including the indubitable appearance of a symbol for "zero", a small circle, appeares on a 1,125 years old stone inscription found at the Chaturbhuja Temple at Gwalior - a city in Madhya Pradesh 125km south of Agra.
The Hindu-Arabic numerals and the positional number system were introduced 1,175 years ago in an arithmetic book "al-Kitab al-mukhtasar fi hisab al-jabr wa'l-muqabala" written by Abu Abdallah Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi (Persian mathematician, astronomer and geographer from Baghdad). This book synthesized Persian, Babylonian, Indian and Greek knowledge and also contained his own fundamental contribution to Algebra and Arithmetic, including an explanation of the use of digit "zero". 350 years later the Arabic numeral system was introduced to Europe through Latin translations of Musa al-Khwarizmi's book causing a profound impact on the advance of mathematics and science in Europe. "Algorithm" was derived from the Latinized forms of Musa al-Khwarizmi's name "Algoritmi".
