India has had a long tradition of more than 3000 years of pursuit of Mathematical ideas, starting from the Vedic age. The Sulvasutras (which included Pythagoras theorem before Pythagoras), the Jain works, the base 10 representation (along with the use of 0), names given to powers of 10 up to 1053, the works of medieval mathematicians motivated by astronomical studies, and finally the contributions of the Kerala school that came strikingly close to modern mathematics, represent the various… 

On the Application of Sumudu Transform Series Decomposition Method and Oscillation Equations

In this paper, a new method called Sumudu Transform Series Decomposition Method (STSDM) is applied to three different models of Oscillatory problems (Van der Pol, Duffing and Nonlinear Oscillatory

IMPLEMENTATION OF HIGH SPEEDARITHMETIC LOGIC USING VEDIC MATHEMATICS TECHNIQUES

TLDR
The design of more efficient high speed 4 × 4 bit arithmetic logic unit based on Vedic multiplication technique which is very efficient in terms of speed and power dissipation is described.

A Novel Approach to Design High Speed Arithmetic Logic Unit Based On Ancient Vedic Multiplication Technique

TLDR
This work proved that Vedic multiplication technique is the best algorithm in terms of speed.

Design Of High Speed FFT Processor Using Vedic Multiplication Technique

TLDR
This work shows that Vedic multiplier is the best multiplication algorithm comparison to other popular multiplication algorithms, because of it there is the possibility to generate partially generated products in parallel manner.

A COMPARISON OF SOME TEST STATISTICS FOR MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE MODEL WITH NON-NORMAL RESPONSES.

The Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) is often used to model responses from more than one response variable on a single factor or a set of factors of interest. The existing statistical

Microarray-based Classification of Histopathologic Responses of Locally Advanced Rectal Carcinomas to Neoadjuvant Radiochemotherapy Treatment

TLDR
Results from this study equally showed that preoperative prediction of responses of LARC patients to NRC treatment using gene expression profiles is possible and shall immensely help in clinical diagnosis and treatment of locally advanced rectal carcinomas.

Design of sliding mode control for structural vibration system with time-varying transmission delays

TLDR
This paper investigates the application of the robust control strategy for reducing structural vibrations using the hybrid protective system using a novel sliding variable and modified reaching law approach in the presence of time-varying transmission delay and matched uncertainties.
