1/n #SadarPranam @ValaAfshar ji. But why @bbcideas & even u fail to acknowledge one of the oldest founder of “Algorithm”, ie Āryabhaṭa (5th Cen CE) who briefly explained it in Āryabhaṭīya by applying it as so called “linear Diophantine equation” (ax + by=c)?
2/n Source of above: Aryabhatiya-with-English-commentary
by Prof. K. S. Shukla

Bhāskara I (7th Cen CE) gave a detailed description of the algorithm with several eg from astronomy in his Āryabhatiyabhāṣya.

He gave algorithms the name Kuṭṭaka. (Source in Snippet)
3/n You know what Literature & Science began to develop 750-850 CE but as you see from earlier tweets,Indians already had established Algorithm.

4/n @ValaAfshar ji, did you know Al-Khwārizmī's text which later on got translated as “Algoritmi de numero Indorum” in Latin actually was actually named “kitāb al-ḥisāb al-hindī” (Book of Indian computation).

N/n Source for above: Routledge Revivals: Medieval Science, Technology and Medicine , pg 39.

Hence request @ValaAfshar ji to pl credit right person of the right things.

Not Al-Khwārizmī but Āryabhaṭa is the nearest known father of Algorithm. 🙏
