According to some people MAYAN people invented zero. But I strongly believe that India invented zero. The name of that mathematician is ARYABHATT. To honor him (of course, long time after his death) Indian government named our first satellite "ARYABHATT."

The concept of zero as a number is commonly held to originate in India in the ninth century BCE. Before this it had been used as a placeholder by a few groups, but not as a number in its own right and not considered a true zero.

It was invented by a Hindu mathematician Ramanujacharya in India

the number zero was one of the last numbers invented because the ancient egyptions never used them and not many other countries at the time used maths.

AnswerWe are so accustomed with seeing the perfect circle, the zero that we cannot imagine it had to be invented. In fact, the invention of zero was a real revolution.

In Babylon (modern Iraq), Arabs had invented the "zero" during the 4th century BC. But their numbering system was not transmitted to other people because of its peculiarity: the first group (that of the units) was not made of 10, but 60 figures. That corresponded to our system of time counting: one minute has 60 seconds, one hour has 60 minutes

There were also Arabs, that used the zero as we know today, between words. to make sure you understood that the space was really empty there, they put a little raised dot. Well dots are easy to miss, so to make it a little blacker, the scribe would wiggle his pen around a little, which sometimes left a little hole in the middle of a small circle.

So we see that the Arabs used the function of the zero that we know today, but they did not say it was a number.

One century after the Mayans, around the year 600 AD, Hindu savants invented too the figure "zero". They also invented the position numbering. Arabs learned this figure system from India. They even called them "Indian figures". During the 10th century, these numbers (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9), slightly changed, were taken over by the Europeans from the Arabs, like many other important items.

AnswerThe number zero was invented independently in India and by the Maya. In India a decimal system was used, like ours, but they used an empty space for zero up to 3rd Century BC. This was confusing for an empty space was also used to separate numbers, and so they invented the dot for a zero. The first evidence for the use of the symbol that we now know as zero stems from the 7th century AD. The Maya invented the number zero for their calendars in the 3rd century AD. The number zero reached European civilization through

the Arabs after 800 AD. The Greek and Roman did not need the number zero for they did their calculations on an abacus. The name 'zero' comes from the Arabic language.

That is Absolute, This is Absolute, Absolute arises out of Absolute

If Absolute is taken away from Absolute, Absolute remains. OM Peace, Peace, Peace.
