The Sanskrit language is a classical language of South Asia belonging to the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European languages. It arose in South Asia after its predecessor languages had diffused there from the northwest in the late Bronze Age. Sanskrit is the sacred language of Hinduism, the language of classical Hindu philosophy, and of historical texts of Buddhism and Jainism. It was a link language in ancient and medieval South Asia, and upon transmission of Hindu and Buddhist culture to Southeast Asia, East Asia and Central Asia in the early medieval era, it became a language of religion and high culture, and of the political elites in some of these regions. As a result, Sanskrit had a lasting impact on the languages of South Asia, Southeast Asia and East Asia, especially in their formal and learned vocabularies.
Number system in Sanskrit
Āryabhaṭa numeration is an alpha syllabic numeral system based on Sanskrit phonemes. It was introduced in the early 6th century in India by Āryabhaṭa, in the first chapter titled Gītika Padam of his Aryabhatiya. It attributes a numerical value to each syllable of the form consonant+vowel possible in Sanskrit phonology, from ka = 1 up to hau = 1018.
The values for vowels are as follows: a = 1; i = 100; u = 10000; ṛ = 1000000 and so on.
Aryabhata used this number system for representing both small and large numbers in his mathematical and astronomical calculations.
This system can even be used to represent fractions and mixed fractions. For example, nga is 1⁄5, nja is 1⁄10 and Jhardam (jha=9; its half) = 4+1⁄2.
