Journal of Vedic Mathematics

Welcome to the Online International Journal of Vedic Mathematics.

Here we offer articles on Vedic Mathematics that are a bit technical or long for the Newsletter.

We welcome new articles. If you would like to submit an article to be published here please contact Kenneth Williams at . Articles should aim at the Vedic ideal of simplicity and directness and should be original. They should be well written and checked, and will be carefully examined by our team of Vedic Maths experts before acceptance.
