A comparative study on the Sulvic and geometric terms
In this paper, we are present a comparative study on the Śulvic and Geometric terms. The Śulvasūtras are give the construction rules of the fire altars, these alters are made in bricks in very complicated shape and size. The Śulva was used to solve propositions about the construction of various rectilinear figures; combination, transformation, menstruation of areas and many others. So, the Seers of Śulvasūtras are used many terms like Dīrgha caturasra, Ᾱyāma, Tiryak, Samo caturasra. Some geometrical terms are square, rectangle, trapezium and many more. The Śulvic terms are presently used in modern geometry in following way – Samo caturasra > square, Tiryak > breadth, Ᾱyāma > length and Dīrgha caturasra > rectangle.
