The Zero Home Page

Not enough attention has been paid to the digit zero in the course of history. It was the last of the decimal digits to be established in Western systems, but it has so many strong effects on our lives. Where would we be without zeros? In big trouble...
But seriously folks, the zero digit serves a very important function in any complex number system (not to be confused with the Complex number system, but zeros are important there too). Zero helps clear up the philosphical question about the difference between:
the presence of nothing
the absence of something
and the absence of everything
See this played out in a real math paper (not to be confused with a Real math paper...) that shows that the Indians knew about zero, before it was accepted into Western systems.
