C.” PJ Media It has long been one of the world’s greatest mathematical mysteries, but experts believe they have finally cracked the origin of the zero symbol.
The manuscript was buried in a field in a village called Bakhshali, near Peshawar, in what is now a region of Pakistan.
Since 1902, it has been housed in the Bodley Library at the University of Oxford.
But it will go on public display at the Science Museum in London as a centrepiece of the major exhibition Illuminating India: 5000 Years of Science and Innovation, opening 4 October 2017.
We now know that it was as early as the 3rd century that mathematicians in India planted the seed of the idea that would later become so fundamental to the modern world.
‘The findings show how vibrant mathematics have been in the Indian sub-continent for centuries.’ The zero symbol that we use today evolved from a dot that can be seen throughout the Bakhshali manuscript.
