The book on ‘Vedic Mathematics’ written by Jagadguru Sankaracarya Sri Bharati Krisna Tirthaji Maharaja contains 16 Sutras or formulas and 13 Sub-Sutras or corollaries to carry out various arithmetical operations. The sutra ‘Urdhva Tiryagbhyam’ is used for multiplication of two decimal numbers containing equal number of digits. The squaring of a binary number can be done using this sutra. The sub-sutra ‘Anurupyena’ is used to find the cube of a decimal number. The cube of a binary number can be evaluated using this sub-sutra. The multiplication of binary numbers is used in the field of digital signal processing for the design of digital multipliers.
