COMPUTATIONAL RESEARCH PROJECT IN TRIPLES
Announcing a research project aimed at investigating the potential for representing Pythagorean Triples as presented in Vedic Mathematics, in terms of the Pure Functional Programming language.

The project is being coordinated by Brian G. Mc Enery, who holds a PhD in Computational Mathematics. The current location for the research is at https://github.com/BrianGMcEnery/advanced-vedic-math/wiki.

Alternately anyone who is interested in this development may contact the project directly at the project email address, vedicmathproject@gmail.com. This research will be of interest to people who have some experience with Vedic mathematics, and some experience with software development.

THREE NEW JOURNAL ARTICLES
This paper offers a comparison of Vedic Mathematics with Modern Mathematics, comparing and contrasting their respective approaches and advantages.

On a neat method for evaluating Sines, Cosines and their inverses and Tangents. And how the method throws light on an approximate general method for evaluating other functions.

On how to express a given number as a sum of two squares - special and general method. The general method is in relation to Tirthaji's chapter 31.

TIRTHAJI’S SEQUENCE
In connection with the sequence given in Chapter 31 of Tirthaji’s book and discussed in the above paper "Expressing a Number as a Sum of Two Square Numbers" we have heard from Vitthal Jadhav that the sequence comes up in another way:
Here is one more interesting beauty of BKT's Sequence 4, 12, 24, 40, 60, 84, 112,...
3^2 + (4^2) = 5^2
(Leave 4 natural numbers after 5 start & from 10)
10 +11^2 + (12^2) = 13^2 + 14^2
(Leave 6 natural number after 14, start from 21)
21^2 +  22^2 + 23^2 + (24^2) = 25^ + 26^2 + 27^2
(Leave 8 natural numbers after 27, start from 36)

36^2 + 37^2 + 38^2 + 39^2 + (40)^2= 41^2 + 42^2 + 43^2 + 44^2
In general if m is n'th Tirthaji's number then
(m-n)^2 + (m-n+1)^2 + (m-n+2)^2 +...+ ((m^2) = (m+1)^2 +(m +2)^2 +..+ (m+n)^2
Here is visual proof
