The History of Mathematics (I): The development of Calculus

Abstract: The rich and diverse history of mathematics is both intriguing and engaging. Knowing the history of mathematics helps to humanize the pioneers who developed the subject and gives us a window into the circumstances under which they worked. In this talk, we shall discuss the development of calculus, with a focus on the work of both Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz, and the famous controversy surrounding the dispute between these two giants about who gets credit for the development of calculus.
