About the Conference


Owing to the contributions of renowned scientists like Varahamihira, Aryabhatta, Bhaskara-II, and Nagarjuna, ancient India possessed significant technological capabilities in the domains of Mathematics, Medicine, Physics, and Astronomy. Being a "Vishwaguru," ancient India led the entire world and was unquestionably self-sufficient both economically and technically. This one-day international conference aims to inspire the youth of Bharath to investigate the ways in which our ancient Indian Mathematicians have contributed significantly to Science and Technology across a range of sectors. The younger generation will benefit from this conference by grasping the link between Vedic Mathematics and the Vedhas, which were formulated by our ancient scholars and sages. The beauty and strength of our ancient Indian Mathematics will be understood and appreciated by the participants after attending this conference. In addition, this event will catalyze interested scholars to get involved in exploring the importance of ancient Indian Mathematics to Science and Technology.

ABOUT SASTRA


A sprawling campus with a vibrant population of students, faculty and state-of-the art laboratories has made SASTRA a landmark in the educational map of India. SASTRA has reached national standing in terms of academic performance, co-curricular, extra-curricular activities and commitment to social service.

ABOUT SRINIVASA RAMANUJAN CENTRE


SASTRA established Srinivasa Ramanujan Centre in 2002 as a fitting tribute to the great mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan who spent most of his formative years in the temple town of Kumbakonam. This centre also houses a museum called “House of Ramanujan Mathematics”. SASTRA purchased and renovated the house where Srinivasa Ramanujan lived and spent his childhood days. The house and the museum have been dedicated to the nation as an international monument by His Excellency, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, the then President of India.

SASTRA-RAMANUJAN AWARD


The prestigious SASTRA-RAMANUJAN Award was instituted in 2005 to honour young mathematicians (age limit of 32) for their outstanding contributions in the area of Mathematics influenced by Srinivasa Ramanujan. The award comprises 10,000 USD and a citation. The award has gained global recognition as one of the top most awards given to mathematicians. Till now 21 mathematicians have received the award. Six among those 21 have gone on to win Fields medal subsequently.

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT


The Department of Mathematics was established in 2002. The Department has 14 faculty members with rich research and teaching experience. The objective of the Department is to encourage, teach and train the students at all levels. The department of Mathematics also got two DST research chairs established one on Number Theory and the other on Discrete Mathematics. The chairs generated quality research in the areas concerned with quality publications. The Department has established computer laboratory for Discrete Mathematics under the FIST Programme. The Department is supported by NBHM Library grant. Spacious and well stocked library facility is available with 1573 titles and 3075 books. Since the campus is Wi-Fi enabled, students can use and download online resources such as journals, theses, articles and e-books through SASTRA website.
