Vedic Mathematics (New)
by Tirthaji, Bharati Krsna
Publisher: Motilal Banarsidass
Book ID: 9788120801646, 8120801644
Usually available in 1-2 weeks
This epoch-making and monumental work on Vedic Mathematics unfolds a new method of approach. It relates to the truth of numbers and magnitudes equally applicable to all sciences and arts.
The book brings to light how great and true knowledge is born of intuition, quite different from modern Western method. The ancient Indian method and its secret techniques are examined and shown to be capable of solving various problems of mathematics. The universe we live in has a basic mathematical structure obeying the rules of mathematical measures and relations. All the subjects in mathematics-Multiplication, Division, Factorization, Equations, Calculus, Analytical Conics, etc.-are dealt with in forty chapters, vividly working out all problems, in the easiest ever method discovered so far.
The volume, more a 'magic', is the result of intuitional visualization of fundamental mathematical truths born after eight years of highly concentrated endeavour of Jagadguru Sri Bharati Krsna Tirtha.
"The treatment of fundamental operations of multiplication and division as given in the book is simply exciting, interesting and charming and hence looks like magic. The book can produce several Shakuntalas if followed and understood thoroughly. Of course all of them will be called living computers, if not great mathematicians.
Throughout the book efforts have been made to solve the problems in a short time and in short space also.... Sometimes 2 or 3 methods have been given with a view to make computation simpler... one can see that the formulae given by the author from Vedas are very interesting and encourage a young mind for learning mathematics as it will not be a bugbear to him." - S.C. Sharma, Ex-Head of the Department of Mathematics Education, NCERT
"Vedic Mathematics is based on 16 sutras. It has wider applications then Trachtenberg speed mathematics... Vedic Mathematics does not just deal with numbers, but also with advanced mathematical theories, including calculus.... Solving differentiation and integration problems is child's play using Vedic Mathematics... The book endores the omniscient nature of Vedas... The book is recommended for students and amateur Mathematicians. It will help children who get nightmares before a mathematics examination." - K.V. Sudhakar, Mid-Day, 5th July 1999
