Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Mathematics which was
rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji
(1884-1960). At the beginning of the twentieth century, when there was a great
interest in the Sanskrit texts in Europe, Bharati Krsna Swamiji tells us some
scholars ridiculed certain texts which were headed 'Ganita Sutras'- which means
mathematics. They could find no mathematics in the translation and dismissed
the texts as rubbish. Bharati Krsna Swamiji, who was himself a scholar of
Sanskrit, Mathematics, History and Philosophy, studied these texts and after
lengthy and careful investigation was able to reconstruct the mathematics of
the Vedas. According to his research all of mathematics is based on sixteen
Sutras, or word-formulae.
Bharati Krsna wrote sixteen volumes expounding the Vedic system but these were unaccountably lost and when the loss was confirmed in his final years he wrote a single book: Vedic Mathematics, currently available. It was published in 1965, five years after his death. The term Vedic Mathematics now refers to a set of sixteen mathematical formulae or sutras and their corollaries derived from the Vedas.
CONTEMPORARY UTILITIES OF VEDIC MATHEMATICS
Vedic Maths is considered to be the technology and science of order and precision, which maintains the uprightness of unity and also spreads variety with it. It is also said to be the Natural Law’s structuring dynamic; it instinctively designs the source and goal of natural law, which is the orderly theme of evolution.
The ‘difficult’ problems or the time consuming huge sums can often be solved quickly and without any mistakes by using the Vedic method. These outstanding and fine-looking methods are merely a small part of an entire system of mathematics, which is way too methodical than the modern ’system. Vedic Mathematics manifests the logical and amalgamated structure of mathematics with the help of complementary, direct and easy methods.
The most astonishing feature of the Vedic system is its coherence. Instead of a mixture of unrelated techniques, the entire system is marvelously interconnected and fused: the general method of multiplication, for example, is easily reversed to permit single-line divisions and the straightforward squaring method can be upturned to give one-line square roots. All of these methods are easily understood. This unifying quality gives immense satisfaction and makes maths enjoyable and easy and also motivates innovation.
The simplest benefit of Vedic Mathematics is that it enables us to carry out calculations far quickly as compared to conventional techniques because of the way the algorithms of vedic maths have been devised. There are many other advantages in using a flexible system.. Research is being carried out in many areas. Researches include utilizing the existing vedic mathematics techniques to solve complex mathematical calculations than often arise in high speed ALUs. But the real charm and usefulness of Vedic Mathematics can be fully treasured only after practicing the system actually.
VEDIC MATHEMATICS –the shortcut wizard
The reason for choosing vedic mathematics for our ALU is quite obvious. It’s the vedic mathematics that facilitates us with the algorithms that are significantly shorter and take less time to execute than conventional complex algorithms. This has been possible because of the fact that vedic mathematics itself is a sort of shortcut wizard. the 16 different rules gives us the tricks to help us solve complex calculations in no time.
For instance, multibit multiplication can be done here using only a few additions and single bit multiplications rather than the tedious calculations in other methods like array multiplier and baugh-wooley multiplier. Hence not only are the calculations done in the ALU faster but also we have to write less number of codes to realize the algorithms. We will find out later as to how our ALU works and how it runs faster than others
