you must be a card carrying member of The venetian partY > It's very easy to see that Leibniz was not in the same class as Newton. Newton's accomplishment by far surpass anything Leibniz did. However, Leibniz was attempting to produce a rigorous calculus. I suppose Germanic genes haven't changed too much since then. I preferred Leibnizian notation but when I studied Leibniz's formulation, it too was found wanting. > > > > Newton seemed to be a bit of a hog when it came to consistency and communicating his thoughts. Leibniz on the other hand was disciplined and tried to be consistent always. > > > > It does not matter any longer what Newton or Leibniz thought because the New Calculus (http://thenewcalculus.weebly.com) has been discovered. I recommend only that their works be studied for historical interest. Newton accomplished far more than Leibniz. Of this, there can be no doubt. > > > > The difference between Newton and me: The first and only rigorous formulation of calculus in human history. > > > > Comments are NOT welcome.
