Chandas (prosody, study of Sanskrit metres)
Mallāri (मल्लारि) or Mallāri Vidvatkavi, son of Yajñabhaṭṭa, is the author of the Vṛttamuktāvalī which has an auto commentary named Tarala (the text is different from the work of Durgādatta with the same title). Mallāri starts the commentary by praising metres like āryā and vaitālīya. Bowing down to the one (Kṛṣṇa) whose wife is Āryā and whose nature is Vaitāla (a grat dancer), Mallāri composes elaborately the commentary Tarala on Vṛttamuktāvali.Source: Shodhganga: a concise history of Sanskrit Chanda literature
