ab: This project explores some of the parallel developments in philosophy and
mathematics in South Asia up to about the year 1500. It was created by
the authors for a team-taught class on the development of philosophy
and mathematics in India. It has also been used by the first author in
first-semester calculus to show how the idea of the derivative evolved
in India from the study of difference equations, totally independent of
the goemetric idea of tangent lines. (Introduction)
