The most commonly used system of numerals is decimal. **Indian mathematicians** are credited with developing the integer version, the Hindu–Arabic numeral system. Aryabhata of Kusumapura developed the place-value notation in the 5th century and a century later Brahmagupta introduced the symbol for zero.

**A unique land of vibrant colours, breathtaking landscapes and rich history**, India is unlike any other. From the writhing streets of Mumbai to the idyllic shores of the Andaman Islands, this remarkable country offers a diverse feast for the senses.

**Aryabhata** was one of the greatest Indian mathematicians astronomer from the classical era of Indian mathematics and astronomy. He was the one to discover the value the number zero.

The Aryabhata spacecraft, named after the famous Indian astronomer, was India's first satellite; it was completely designed and fabricated in India and launched by a **Soviet Kosmos-3M rocket from Kapustin Yar** on April 19, 1975.

Indian mathematicians made early contributions to the study of the concept of **zero as a number, negative numbers, arithmetic, and algebra**. In addition, trigonometry was further advanced in India, and, in particular, the modern definitions of sine and cosine were developed there.

His major work, **Aryabhatiya, a compendium of mathematics and astronomy**, was extensively referred to in the Indian mathematical literature and has survived to modern times. The mathematical part of the Aryabhatiya covers arithmetic, algebra, plane trigonometry, and spherical trigonometry.
