Historians believed that it came into existence from 458 A.D.
Most of the number and problems were written in verses form (Known as SLOKA in Sanskrit) or in the basis of natural things.
For Ex: Moon and Earth represents the Number 1, Eyes represents the Number 2, Indians were the First to introduce Base 10 system for the calculations.
The opinion of historians says that the invention and application of Zero made effectively in and application of Zero made effectively in India because of the non availability of counting instruments ‘abacus’ which was popular during that period in different countries. The dependency to write the number for commercial purpose many be the main reason for its invention in
1) A + 0 = A
2) A – 0 = A
3) A × 0 = 0
4) A / 0 = 0
His first 3 formulas were correct but he failed to express the product of 4th one. He told it as Zero instead of Infinity. Later it was solved by another famous Indian mathematician Bhaskar (1114 A.D – 1185A.D) who born at Bijapur in Karnataka. It was mentioned in his famous book “Leelavathi”
Invention of Zero inspired by the Indians to invent the negative numbers and later algebra also developed. All this shows the tremendous development of Maths and astronomy during 6th century to 10th century.
The rich knowledge of mathematics and Astronomy of India spread to

Arabians found the importance of Indian Numeral System and felt that it was more useful than other numeral system. They maintained the secrecy with other countries; they avoided the admissions for abroad people to their instructions.

Wrote in 1202 A.D.
After the invention of printing press the Indian Numerals spread over to
After the translation of the Indian word “Shunya” became ‘Sifr’-Nothing in Arabic language. The word ‘Sifr’ became ‘Zephyr’ in Latin. Later the word ‘Zephyr’ became ZERO.
The mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci named it as ‘Zephyrus’ and he popularized it in European countries. In the same way it was called by different words in different languages with the same meaning.

In computer science, ZISC stands for Zero Instruction Set Computer, which refers to a chip technology based on pure pattern matching and absence of (micro-) instructions in the classical sense. The ZISC acronym alludes to the previously developed RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) technology.
