This book covers the works of Bhaskara, in particular, his monumental treatise on astronomy, the Siddhantasiromani, his astronomical handbook, the Karanakutuhala, and his two mathematical treatises, the Lilavati and the Bijaganita, on arithmetic and algebra, respectively. It is a collection of selected papers presented at Bhaskara 900, an international conference commemorate the 900th birth anniversary of the great Indian mathematician Bhaskaracarya. Bhaskara-prabha, the radiance of Bhaskara, presents the Indian mathematical tradition and the place of Bhaskara in it. The aim of this book is to instill a sense of pride in younger generations of one of their most celebrated thinkers, by sketching some details of his mathematical achievements and capturing their imagination through his poetic flair. It is intended to raise a greater awareness among students and teachers of India's rich mathematical heritage.

"The Bhaskaraprabha with its various scholarly contributions will surely be a welcome and useful contribution to any library." (Sita Sundar Ram, zbMATH 1426.01006, 2020) "Students of the mathematics of India will, of course, find much here that is useful, and at least some of the articles will interest more general readers as well." (Fernando Q. Gouvea, MAA Reviews, October 13, 2019)
