The Arithmetic of the Infinite
Two main streams of discovery fueled the seventeenth century mathematical revolution and culminated in the synthesis of a powerful new infinitesimal analysis. One was the rich amalgam of specialized area and tangent methods from which the basic general algorithms of the calculus were distilled by Newton and Leibniz. The other centered on the development and application of infinite series techniques.
