Brahmagupta is an Indian mathematician and astronomer who made pivotal contributions to arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and the study of quadratic indeterminate equations. His works were of great importance to later Indian mathematicians who would draw from his discoveries to perfect the generalized solution of Pell's equation. Brahmagupta was also the first recorded mathematician to have demystified the properties of the number zero to its modern form.
