The article focuses on the use of Archaeo-astronomy to determine the Astrometry observables using the instruments or Yantras of the Man Mandir Observatory situated in Man Mahal, Dashashvamedh ghat, Varanasi, India. The Yantras situated in the observatory are- Samrat Yantra (small and large), Digansa Yantra, Nadivalaya Yantra, Chakra Yantra and Dakshinobhitti Yantra. Each Yantra has a specific purpose and gives the value of an observable by taking appropriate readings. This article discusses the measurement procedure and provides the obtained......

Machine learning has taken the world by storm in recent years with a dizzying myriad of new applications for the various burgeoning classes of algorithms being designed and explored everyday. Some of the most groundbreaking results have come from the use of Neural Networks, trained on massive mounds of data using the now well known training algorithm, backpropagation.

AbstractFull text (PDF) | Supplementary Text

Cellular automata (CA) is a computational formalism extensively used in pattern formation. CA has also proven to be a very powerful tool to model and simulate biological systems in order to increase our understanding of the dynamics of biological systems and to find simple rules governing formation of complex patterns in biological systems. Apart from understanding the biological pattern formation in general, CA has also been used to enhance our knowledge of disease development including development of tumor mass. In this work, we have used CA formalism to model hierarchical cell division program in stem cells. Our model is based on the cancer stem cell hypothesis where complete tumor mass can be generated by a single cancer cell termed as a tumor initiating cell (TIC) or a cancer stem cell (CSC). A fully parameterized model is developed and made accessible to wide range of researchers including experimentalists and computational biologists. Simulation results obtained from our computational framework were found to be consistent with our current understanding.
