First Lecture in Ashoka History Spring 2021 Webinar series : Symbol and Image Worship in Jainism: Stūpas, Images and Āyāgapaṭas of Mathura’.

January 27 @ 1:40 pm - 2:45 pm

ABSTRACT This paper discusses Jainism at Mathura, based on epigraphic evidence from the 2ndcentury BCE to the 11thcentury CE. The inscriptions reveal several kinds of gifts donated in this period namely temples, āyāgapaṭas, śilāpaṭas, and Jina images.

Our model generates several predictions, which we test empirically using amendments to the Indian anti-dowry law as a natural experiment. We document a decline in women's decision-making power and separations, and a surge in…

Speaker: K Ramasubramanian Professor, Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay Title:      Construction of 4 × 4 Pandiagonal Magic Squares with Turagagati Abstract: In India, magic squares seem to have been known for more than two millennia. However, among the extant texts, a systematic introduction to the principles governing their construction can be found only in the work of Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita (c. 1356 CE). He has dedicated one full chapter of his Gaṇitakaumudī to describe Bhadragaṇita, namely, methods for constructing magic squares of different orders. The…

Speaker: Jishnu Ray Postdoctoral Researcher at CRM, Université de Montréal Title:      Selmer groups of elliptic curves and Iwasawa algebras Abstract: The Selmer group of an elliptic curve over a number field encodes several arithmetic data of the curve providing a p-adic approach to the Birch and Swinnerton Dyer, connecting it with the p-adic L-function via the Iwasawa main conjecture. Under suitable extensions of the number field, the dual Selmer group becomes a module over the Iwasawa algebra of a certain compact p-adic…
