Vedic Maths is a collection of Sutras developed by ancient Indian Sages around half a millennium ago. The techniques or Sutras taught were used for calculations and had its applications in every known branch of science like physics, chemistry,astronomy, astrology etc.
Vedic Maths originates in the Atarvana Veda and was basically coded in the form of hymns.
Originally, Vedic Maths was used to aid in rituals and religious purposes. Some of the known applications were:
Many of the great mathematicians from India who made great contributions in the field of mathematics were students of this ancient kowledge. Their work and teachings have applications in different branches of science and helped the next generations in exploring more into the secrets of the universe and also technological advancements.
A few such mathematicians are:
