I believe Newton's notation is used in mechanical engineering dynamics

Were you all aware Einstein HAD NOTHING AT ALL to do with relativity? Was an uneducated, low IQ dunce who plagiarized it?

Not a fair dispute when the presenters are also British. Leibniz was the greatest genius the western world ever had.

The real debate isn't between newton and leibniz. It's between leibniz and spinoza.

On account of Newton being a sore, cheating loser, he was obviously second. :P

Leibniz. If not first, definitely better.

Maybe it's jsut me but I found the way the head librian was speaking really soothing and calming. I could definitely listen to that guy a while

It's not an invention. It's a discovery. Maths would be similar in every advanced intellectual species. Convergent ideas?

Looking at Newton's calculus brought back the math anxiety in me! Amazing genius to conceive all that complicated numbers and equations.

"Does Newton ever say, you know... shut up, Leibniz?" 5:00 She really was there for the gossip!

My favorite Hannah Fry quote " I thought it was an integral, but it was just a curly F."

Newton was stole the theory of gravity from Robert Hook and tried to destroy Hook’s other achievements after his death. Newton was an alchemist which questions his sanity.

Why isn't all that material digitalized and made publicly available on the web..?
Have you googled it? Because a lot of it is already digitalized or you can find copies of the original. Google "Commercium Epistolicum" and you'll find a free copy of the original on google books etc. It's all public domain by now.

I guess its alright if Newton gets the credit. After all Germans took over the British Throne and to this day rule over you. And the Royal Society is led also by Germans, so no ill feelings. :P

Newton didn't invented it first. Leibniz did. Then Newton got some fake dated letters around.

1. Archimedes did it first. 2. Newton was thief, liar and a murderer.

Shameless self-promotion and being the first to publish in english has made many win the popular credit.

📓📔✒️ Oh? I love these glimpses of historical moments/writings which feature science and maths. Also, I feel a deep sense of wonder and of awe when we are shown the original handwritten pages.

Leibniz invented the Calculus and then went on to do a very nice line in chocky biscuits

They are having fun here and it shows. I wonder if Newton and Leibniz were looking at it equally relaxed? Probably not. But then, why make a big fuss? Both men have contributed so much... there is more than enough praise to go around!

When I started looking for where math went wrong this year, and why computers had yet to fix it, this was a clue. The Gothic notation is an early example of quantum tunneling. All the way back to Caesar, those hairy forest people had a will about them. Gutenberg and Luther, Leibniz and Boltzmann , Scwartzschild and Planck. Even Heisenberg broke better. Habermas and Goedel are the last great German souls waiting for an answer.

Huh ... so they had typewriters back then in 1673?? Edit: Ah, no, I was seeing the printed book which was typeset ... I guess typesetting was more art than science back then.

Did Germany have a royal society of its own at the time?
Dirk Knight

Modern Germany didn't exist until 1871. Leibniz worked for different employers. At the time artists and scientists usually had to find employment with a local aristocrat. He eventually settled in Hanover, it seems. The German Physical Society, which is somewhat similar to the Royal Society (but more specialized) was founded in 1845, so that's much later. I have to admit that I don't know which German institution was first, but it was likely politically problematic to be a member of a "German" (rather than just a local duchy) institution until the 1840s or so, by which time a political movement to form one large German state had been created. The local rulers were quite paranoid about spies and potentially political congregations of any kind and would most likely have been suspicious about memberships beyond their reach. Somebody more astute in the history of German science will answer this better, I am sure.

Poor Leibniz. That's ok. Germany got its revenge in WW1 & WW2.

Britain played a minor role in those world wars. I know that's hard to swallow for little Englanders. Also Leibnitz invented the binary code.
The Ultimate Reductionist
What was the last year the Royal Society published in Latin and which was the first year (presumably the next) they published in English?

This was all pretty much already done in Ancient India. Greeks and Leibniz are given a bit too much credit.

In the seventeenth century mathematicians had to be fluent in Latin, at least being able to read and write it. I wonder how many are today ?
Meester_James Month ago
Leibniz is like the new, but lesser known Tesla. The underdog guy that we now all love because it turns out Edison/Newton was kind of annoying
BrandonFlorida Month ago
It's my understanding that Leibnitz's discovery was facilitated by quite a bit of prior communication with Newton.
