If these claims can be substantiated, and if the whole work is genuine, the text is the earliest preserved Indian mathematical and astronomical text bearing the name of an individual author, the earliest Indian text to deal specifically with mathematics, and the earliest preserved astronomical text from the third or scientific period of Indian astronomy. Of the rest of the work no translation has appeared, and only a few of the stanzas have been discussed. There are several uncertainties about this text. Especially noteworthy is the considerable gap after IV, 44, which is discussed by Kern pp. The present translation, with its brief notes, makes no pretense at completeness. It is a preliminary study based on inadequate material.

Biography Name While there is a tendency to misspell his name as "Aryabhatta" by analogy with other names having the "bhatta" suffix, his name is properly spelled Aryabhata: every astronomical text spells his name thus,[4] including Brahmagupta's references to him "in more than a hundred places by name".

There is no evidence that he was born outside Patliputra and traveled to Magadha, the centre of instruction, culture and knowledge for his studies where he even set up a coaching institute.

Aryabhatta was only 23 when he composed his mathematical treatise— Aryabhatiya. The entire script was written in Sanskrit and hence reads like a poetic verse rather than a practical manual.
