From ancient times Indian scholars have shown interest in arranging things in regular order, applying ordering techniques to various types of items and concepts and theorizing about such arrangements mathematically. This interest was manifested in rules for permutations, combinations, and enumeration, as well as in the study of series. In some areas, such as metrics and music, this knowledge may go back to before the beginning of the present era.

Keywords:   India, ordering, permutations, combinations, enumeration
