What is the undeniable link between modern quantum computing, mathematical ingenuity by Srinivasa Ramanujan, and Vedic scholar Vatsyayana?
In its face, there is none. But the common thread that binds all these things together is coding, encryption, and encryption, which makes data transfer on the information highway secure, audible, and at lightning speed.
Revealing this deep link may indicate Indian quantum thrust, as China and the United States (US) strive to rise, little by little, all the way.
When cyber wars and cybersecurity are a matter of course, the Indian ithasa information protection may provide the basis for building our policy and have the opportunity to fight and confront quantum biggies around the world.
Some of the earliest references to the change of cipher, the fundamental doctrine of the crucifixion, and the techniques for removing the crucifix, can be traced to Vatsyayana, a Vedic scholar of the fourth century AD, who laid down the famous mlecchita vikalpa. This process was only known to partner partners through the exchange of information in complete confidentiality. It is also considered the oldest source of coding knowledge, popularly known as the Kama Sutra cipher code.
At the heart of cryptography is a branch of mathematics called ‘number theory’ (Sankhya Siddhanta). It has its roots in the work of the great mathematicians of ancient India, such as Hemachandra, Brahmagupta, Aryabhatta, Pingala, and Panni. Old India’s scholars and poets developed mathematical and numerical knowledge by composing poems, composing music, and studying all aspects of human life. The concept of shunya or zero, for example, can be traced to Aryabhatiya, a timeless mathematical and astronomical book of Aryabhatta, dated about 500 CE.
The Sanskrit poet Pingala is honored with a new invention of the binary number system that laid the foundation for modern communication. This was discovered in his book Chandahshastra, dated to the second century BCE
Jain scholar Hemachandra wrote of a series of numbers later known by the name of the Italian mathematician Fibonacci. In 628 CE, Brahmagupta interpreted negative numbers and subtracted, calculating the square root, and developed algebraic texts to solve quadratic arithmetic. All these mathematical ideas have led to the development of mathematics in modern times.
New methods of mathematical innovation in this field were developed by the twentieth-century mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. He made remarkable advances in mathematics that paved the way for countless new cryptography. His works have become the basis for several passages in modern areas of mathematics and computer.
As Western countries and China make advances in quantum technology, it would be helpful for India to revisit Ramanujan’s mathematical concepts in terms of quantum computing.
With the announcement of setting up the National Mission on Quantum Technology and its applications (NM-QTA) in the 2020-21 budget speech, India finally found a foothold in quantum technology.
Quantum technology, which has its roots in quantum physics, will bring about a paradigm shift in the way we see technology today. Computer power will increase dramatically, and problems that can take hundreds of years for an old computer to solve will be solved in seconds by a quantum computer.
Encryption and coding will also change in the ocean when quantum computers start, and these giant machines will disrupt the way we communicate. Researchers worldwide believe that quantum computers will be able to penetrate cryptographic algorithms more robust, such as the RSA 2048-bit, in seconds, challenging the secure exchange of sensitive information.
Since old computers are not equipped to detect quantum-led cyber attacks, it will be challenging to mitigate such evils in the future. Cyber security will be threatened, and serious data breaches may be expected.
As quantum computers adapt to complex encryption, the only way to deal with it is to construct quantum-compliant encryption standards. Alternatively, building on quantum principles, such as folding and superposition, developing encryption algorithms is another option.
While the latter will involve high costs and infrastructure in addition to a functional quantum computer, the first uses Ramanujan’s graphs in post-quantum cryptography. This can be re-distributed to improve algorithms using older computers.
A few decades ago, lovers of cryptology used numerical theory to understand the depth of the Ramanujan graphs. These are mathematical operations that have gained prominence for two main reasons: firstly, they have solved long-standing external problems in communication and, secondly, because of their aesthetics.
Researchers worldwide are working on Ramanujan graphs to discover post-quantum cryptography, developing this set of mathematical functions to extract methods to protect data and information from quantum-led internet attacks. This can be achieved as India’s pursuit of developing quantum computers continues unabated.
Countries like India, which has just entered the race to become more quantum high, will take a lot of effort and investment to compete with the US and China. They have already invested heavily in this border technology.
The first advantage could be spent on technological advances and exploiting weaknesses in existing emerging economic communications systems.
Turning to his classics and his rich history of mathematical, linguistic, and cultural traditions may be India’s goal in building programs that can protect knowledge, protect the privacy of its citizens, and find ways to improve.
