Jayadeva (जयदेव) was a ninth-century Indian mathematician, who further developed the cyclic method (Chakravala method)[1] that was called by Hermann Hankel "the finest thing achieved in the theory of numbers before Lagrange (18th century)"[citation needed]. He also made significant contributions to combinatorics.
