Speaking to presspersons, she said it was a long-standing desire of hers to set up an institution which would carry on her "legacy'' of popularising mathematics among people.
She said that she would ask the Chief Minister, N. Chandrababu Naidu, to allot her 100 acres of land to build a campus which would house a formal mathematical university as well as informal centres for spreading interest and knowledge of mathematics.
She said that India has a glorious tradition of mathematical learning and it was necessary to preserve and extend it.
Her proposed university would encourage study both in the latest problems in mathematics as well as provide space for research in Vedic Mathematics.
She added that India has "so much skill and talent but much of it was wasted. It was not the brain drain which was worrying, but that so much of Indian brain was wasting itself due to poverty and lack of opportunity.''
Andhra Pradesh had an excellent track record in mathematical accomplishments and would prove an ideal location for situating a mathematical institution akin to Arundale's Kalakshetra in Chennai, she said.
