Veá¹‡vÄroha is a work in Sanskrit composed by MÄdhava (c.1350 â€“ c.1425) of SangamagrÄma the founder of the Kerala school of astronomy and mathematics. It is a work in 74 verses describing methods for the computation of the true positions of the Moon at intervals of about half an hour for various days in an anomalistic cycle. This work is an elaboration of an earlier and shorter work of MÄdhava himself titled SphutacandrÄpti. Veá¹‡vÄroha is the most popular astronomical work of MÄdhava. It is dated 1403 CE. Acyuta Piá¹£Ärati (1550 â€“ 1621), another prominent mathematician/astronomer of the Kerala school, has composed a Malayalam commentary on Veá¹‡vÄroha.This astronomical treatise is of a type generally described as Karaá¹‡a texts in India. Such works are characterized by the fact that they are compilations of computational methods of practical astronomy. The title Veá¹‡vÄroha literally means Bamboo Climbing and it is indicative of the computational procedure expounded in the text. The computational scheme is like climbing a bamboo tree, going up and up step by step at measured equal heights.
