The subject of Vedic mathematics is quite wide, deep and ancient. For quite long period, it was treated as part of Jyotisha Sastra. Partly it was covered under Kalpa Sastra, under the title of Sulba sutras, making the foundation for geometry. There has been a great lineage of mathematicians like Arya Bhata, Bhaskracharya, BrahmaGupta, Mahavira Acharya, Pavuluri Mallanna and a host of others. In recent period, the book authored by HHSwami Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha, and titled as Vedic mathematics, has attracted the attention of everybody, both within the country and also abroad. The unconventional approach, high speed arithmatics and high utility factor in competitive world have taken the subject nearer to the modern student.
The Vedic mathematics books published by SVB deal with all the important aspects mentioned above, in addition giving a vivid description of our great heritage. The methods for computation of roots, covering square roots, cube roots, fourth order and fifth order roots, etc., are uniquely compiled and presented by the author facilitating better understanding of the principles both by the teachers and students alike.
The subject is divided into several small topics and sizes of the books are intentionally kept small, only to make the students overcome their psychological barriers.
