Indian mathematicians are famous worldwide. Subjects like Vedic maths have always interested mathematicians from all over the world. Everyone is aware of Aryabhatt’s discovery of zero without which maths is said to be incomplete.But not everybody knows that some mathematical concepts which had been given by Indian mathematicians have been credited to mathematicians from the west.

According to a survey conducted in Britain, one of the basic concepts of calculus, which is believed to be given by the great scientist of the 17th century, Sir Issac Newton and Gotefreid Leibnitz was actually discovered by some highly learned professors of a school in Kerala (South India) .

According to Dr. George Gevargiz Joseph of Manchester University, the concept of infinite series was discovered in Kerala in 1350 (i.e. 250 years before Newton and Leibnitz).

Experts from Manchester University and Exterer University have also brought to light the fact that the Kerala professors had successfully calculated the value of “pie” upto 17 places after decimal.

Evidences have been found that these discoveries were made known to Jesuit missionaries by Indian mathematecians as they were considered to be experts in maths. These missionaries came to India in 15th century . It is believed that these discoveries reached England through these missionaries.

Vedic mathematics computes by relating to a sense of Vedic sutra. Vedic sutra is a ‘zero-start 2Dimensional Vedic matrix virtue’!

Said virtues are affect of a ‘zero start’- position in y and x directions of 2D matrix. We can “see and learn” these matrix virtues from a zero-start 2D square matrix!

Matrix 0…9, 00…99, 000…999 or ‘n 0s… n 9s’ has too many unique-virtues and a related matrix by matrix number application has been followed in Vedic mathematics!

A zero-start 2D square matrix has small squares (with merged row-column position numbers) and each one square is another Vedic 2D square matrix. It is a ‘matrix in matrix’ number application concept.

‘Matrix in matrix’ positions fix decimal numbers. Only “0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9”-based number application relate decimal numbers!

(In-matrix) positions are ‘least'(infinitesimal) when n0s… n 9s matrix has a huge ‘n’ value!

Vedic manner relate a vedic matrix 0…9 and a matrix n0s…n9s effortlessly!

So ancient Indian ‘decimal system’ reveals infinitesimal concept, which is a matrix in-matrix number application!

As Vedic-matrix is an unknown chapter it is not a public awareness today!

Hi.. Thanks for this informative article. I really liked it. I also came across this similar site with nice articles and videos on vedic prinicples – http://www.vichaar.tv
