Yes, of course in fact they were the early pioneers in the field of mathematics. From India they reached in the middle east and from there to the the rest of the world especially through trade.

If you check the history of Indian mathematics and the mathematicians you could find that almost from every corner of the the Great land from the Harappan civilization to the south Kerala made considerable contributions to the world.

The famous mathematicians from India are:-

->From Classical Period.

1. Aryabhata

2. Brahmagupta

3. Bhaskara II.

->From Vedic Period.

1.Samhitas and Brahmanas

2.Śulba Sūtras

3.Vyakarana

->Pingala.

1.Chhandas Shastra

2.Katyayana

->Jain Mathematics (400 BCE – 200 CE)

1.Vaishali Ganit (c. 3rd century BCE)

2.The Sthananga Sutra (fl. 300 BCE – 200 CE)

3.the Anoyogdwar Sutra (fl. 200 BCE – 100 CE)

4.Manjula

5.Aryabhata II

6.Shripati

7.Nemichandra Siddhanta Chakravati

8.Bhaskara II

->Kerala mathematics (1300–1600)

The Kerala school of astronomy and mathematics was founded by Madhava of Sangamagrama in Kerala, South India and included among its members:-
