Baudhayana-The LNMIIT Mathematical Society

Sulbasutras are part of Kalpasutras, which are one of the six Vedangas. These are basically manuals for geometric constructions of Vedic altars.

(Baudhayana Sulbasutra 1.48, 800 BCE)

This means, the diagonal cord of the reactangle makes both(the squares) that the vertical and horizontal sides make separately. This is a proof of Pythagoras theorem and was known before stated by Pythagoras. Another most remarkable statement from Sulbasutras is the following rational approximation of √2 :

Therefore, considering the contribution of this great ancient Indian Mathematician, we named our Mathematical Society Baudhayana-The LNMIIT Mathematical Society.
