On Sanskrit commentaries dealing with mathematics (VIIth-XIIth century)

Abstract : This article will explore the shifting perceptions that past scholars had on Sanskrit commentaries dealing with mathematics. We will concentrate on texts composed between the VIIth to the XIIth century. We will try to specify how they have been collected in libraries and then how they were studied by historians of mathematics. We will end this exploration by evoking some of the new perspectives for the history of positional arithmetics in India opened by the study of such texts, when focussing on the mathematical and linguistical link they have with the text they comment.
