Tantrasaṅgraha of Nīlakaṇṭha Somayājī by Nilakantha Somayaji( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several important innovations in mathematical technique are also to be found in Tantrasaṅgraha, especially related to the computation of accurate sine tables, the use of series for evaluating the sine and cosine functions, and a systematic treatment of the problems related to the diurnal motion of the celestial objects. The spherical trigonometry relations presented in the text - applied to a variety of problems such as the computation of eclipses and elevation of Moon's cusps - are also exact. In preparing the translation and explanatory notes, the authors have used authentic Sanskrit editions of Tantrasaṅgraha by Suranad Kunjan Pillai and K V Sarma, which includes the commentaries Laghuvivṛti and Yuktidīpikā by Śaṅkara Vāriyar. The text consists of eight chapters covering mean longitudes, true longitudes, gnomonic shadow, lunar eclipse, solar eclipse, vyatīpāta, reduction to observatino and elevation of Moon's cusps. All 432 verses have been translated into English and supplemented with detailed explanations through use of mathematical equations, tables and figures. This edition of Tantrasaṅgraha will appeal to historians of astronomy as well as those who are keen to know about the actual computational procedures employed in Indian astronomy. It is a self-contained text with several appendices, enabling the reader to comprehend the subject matter easily. -- from back cover
