> *Date and Time:* Tuesday, Feb 14th 2023, 7pm
> Early Indian contributions to science that are not well known to the
> layperson include a deep theory of mind, Pāṇini’s astonishing Sanskrit
> grammar, binary numbers of Piṅgala, music theory, combinatorics, algebra,
> earliest astronomy, and the physics of Kaṇāda with its laws of motion. Of
> these, Kaṇāda is the least known. He may not have presented his ideas as
> mathematical equations, but he attempted something that no physicist to
> date has dared to do: he advanced a system that includes space, time,
> matter, as well as observers. He also postulated four types of atoms, two
> with mass (that turn out to be like proton and electron) and two with
> little mass (like the modern neutrino and photon), and the idea of
> invariance. A thousand or more years after Kaṇāda, Āryabhaṭa postulated
> that earth rotated and advanced the basic idea of relativity of motion.
> This webinar presents an overview of such scientific discoveries in ancient
> India.
