Symposium on Jainism and Mathematics

Ancient Wisdom Meets the Modern Age 

Jai Jinendra,

On December 12 -14, 2020, The Federation of Jain Associations in North America (JAINA), the Jain Center of Greater Boston (JCGB), and Sir John Templeton Foundation (JTF) will hold a virtual International Symposium on ancient Jain Mathematics. 

Ancient Jain literature (400 BC – 1000 AD) contains advanced mathematical treatises on number theory, set theory, theory of series and sequences, combinatorics, logarithms, trigonometry, as well as the concepts of infinity, and zero. Such mathematical works is not readily evident in the ancient Jain texts, rather it is deeply embedded in small details of Karma theories, the universe (cosmology), and the Jain study of celestial bodies (astronomy).  

Over the past century, scholars across the world are only beginning to publish these ancient mathematical discoveries in research papers and books. The Symposium on Jainism and Mathematics hopes to bring out the distinct features of Jain Mathematics and its contributions. Moreover, the symposium aims to serve as a catalyst for discussion spanning beyond Jainism to other Eastern and Western faiths, traditions, and their interactions with science and mathematics.
