The competition is named after Madhava, who introduced in the fourteenth century, profound mathematical ideas that are now part of Calculus. His most famous achievements include the Madhava-Leibnitz series for π, the Madhva-Newton power series for Sine and Cosine functions and a numerical value of π that is accurate to eleven decimal places. The “Madhava school” consisting of a long chain of teacher-student continuity flourished for well over two centuries, making significant contributions to mathematics and astronomy.
