Abstract

(Please write to me if you want the full text.)

Ancient cultural tradition of the Indian subcontinent (India for short) is characterized by a combination of three important factors: (i) antiquity, (ii) continuity, and (iii) interaction with the outside world. I discuss how astronomical knowledge was transmitted from India to China and thence to Korea and China. I point out that not only a study of Indian inputs is essential for a proper understanding of Chinese history of science but also Chinese response can be of great help in understanding developments within India through firm chronology.
