Bhāskarācārya (भास्कराचार्य) or Bhāskarācārya II (b. 1115 C.E.) was the son and disciple of Maheśvara. He was a great scholar of Indian Mathematics. He is credited with numerous works and Līlāvatī is one among them. Legend says he composed this work at the instance of his daughter Līlāvatī. At the end of its first chapter Bhāskarācārya discusses about permutation of metres and gives examples of anuṣṭup and gāyatrī. Bhāskarācārya gives method of calculation of these metres, as an instance for other metres.
