10 thoughts on “The Hindu-Arabic Numerals”

good. about the creation of Hindu - arabic numerals, particularly zero, and the transference of this system from India to europe.

This short book was an enjoyable journey through Ancient India, the Islamic World, and Medieval and Renaissance Europe.

Briefly, the book traces the origins of the Hindu-Arabic numerals (really just "Hindu" numerals) and the place-value system. The main trajectory of the book is discussing how these numerals originated in India, and eventually were transmitted to the Arabs, and finally to Christian Europe.

The book discusses many of the great scholars of Islamic antiquity, who were polyglots, polymaths, and extremely well-traveled men of learning. From their own writings, they routinely apply credit for these numerals to the Hindus.

The development of a useful number system by the ancient Hindus was likely influenced by their religious investigations (e.g. how many days had passed since the last Kali Yuga), astronomical ambitions, and close proximity to China. According the book, the west coast of India was where the entire place-value ten-numeral system was first employed.

Medieval Christian monks preserved much knowledge during the Dark Ages, and some of them were familiar with the Arabic number system. During the Moorish occupation of Southern Spain, when the cross and crescent were on neutral terms, Christian students would attend Arabic schools with Moorish headmasters for their education.

The major innovator who brought Hindu-Arabic numerals to Europe was Leonardo Fibonacci of Pisa. As described in the book, Pisa was a heavy trading center, and the arithmetic problems of commerce likely piqued Leonardo's interest in how to make such calculations easy. Leonardo was extremely well-traveled, and had a diverse education. Leonardo's book, "Liber Abaci," discussed the Hindu-Arabic numerals, how to do calculations with them, and gave example problems that would commonly be encountered in trade and commerce. Unfortunately, his book was not an immediate hit due to the recalcitrance of the universities and the closed-mindedness of the common trader.

The book shows its age at the end, discussing that Hindu-Arabic numerals are still not used in parts of India, Japan, and elsewhere in Asia. Of course, these societies are now modernized, and despite me not knowing how to write Japanese, would easily be able to read the same numbers they use: they're all Hindu-Arabic!

The book's material is interesting, but the kindle formatting is disruptive. No images for numerical images that clearly require it (the word Symbol replace them in the text).
