He is one of the authors who prepared detailed explanatory notes of the celebrated works Gaṇita-yuktibhāṣā (rationales in mathematical astronomy), Tantrasaṅgraha and Karaṇa-paddhati, which bring out the seminal contributions of the Kerala School of Astronomers and Mathematicians. He was conferred the prestigious award of the Mahaṛṣi Bādarāyaṇa Vyas Samman by the then President of India, in 2008, and the R. C. Gupta Endowment Lecture Award by the National Academy of Sciences India, in 2010. He is a recipient of several other awards and coveted titles as well. From 2013, he serves as an elected council member of the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology. He is also a member of various other national and international bodies.

TAKAO HAYASHI is an emeritus professor of history of science from Doshisha University, Japan. He worked on the Bakhshali manuscript to obtain his PhD from Brown University in 1985. He focused on Indian mathematics history, and specifically the Bakhshali manuscript, the oldest surviving Indian text on mathematics. He was a fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. He is a recipient of the Salomon Reinach Foundation Prize from French Institute (2001), Publication Prize from Mathematical Society of Japan (2005), and Kuwabara Prize from the History of Mathematics Society of Japan (2005). He is a member of American Mathematics Society, the Indian Society for History of Mathematics, the History of Science Society of Japan, and the Japanese Association of Indian and Buddhist Studies.
