Re: how was differentiation and integration formed..The history of calculus is interesting and its origin is generally attributed to the studies of Newton and Leibniz independently. Calculus is a natural extension of logic used to study science and nature. #4 20060124 14:03:55
Re: how was differentiation and integration formed..Finding area was rigorously defined by Riemann, which is why we call these Riemann Sums. The sums transform into the integral, which is used to find area. EDIT: I apologize. My Latex coding is not working. Perhaps a mod could point out the error. [Don't worry about it. LaTeX is pretty complicated. It took me a while to get that working. Hopefully that's what you meant to say ] Last edited by Jameson (20060126 11:50:53)
