 I am in my final year of a degree course in Mathematics and in need of
 big help. I have noticed the wealth of knowledge out there amongst
 you but now I need to tap into this knowledge. Firstly I need some
 examples of results which are not named after the people who derived
 them  ie  L'Hopital's rule, found by his tutor Johann Bernoulli.

Mind the "Boyer's Law" in the history of mathematics:
"Mathematical formulas and theorems are usually
not named after their original discoverers."
