Thanks Sridhar for the link…..
This paper was written by Professor David Henderson, Department of Mathematics, Cornell University, on finding numerical value of square roots that was inspired by the Sulbasutra which are Sanskrit texts written by the Vedic Hindu scholars before 600 B.C..It isn’t any new finding that our vedas have been origins for all discoveries and innovations. However what is amazing to note that this professor’s bakthi towards Mahaswami and his respect for Sri Matam.
Periyava had always encouraged scholars to pursue for knowledge in depth. We know how Late Professor Sundararaman was encouraged by Periyava to go for advanced studies.
In his own words:
“This article grew out of researches which were started during my January, 1990, visit to the Sankaracharya Mutt in Konchipuram, Tamilnadu, India, where I was given access to the Mutt’s library. I thank Sri Chandrasekharendra Sarasvati, the Sankaracharya, and all the people of the Mutt for their generous hospitality, inspiration and blessings.”
