When calculus was invented, has always been a question in Math. The first signs of calculus were done by Greek mathematicians. Zeno of Elea of about 450 B.C. gave a number of problems which were based on the infinite. His argument was that motion is impossible. Other Greek mathematicians that contributed to the method of exhaustion are Leucippus, Democritus and Antiphon. The method of exhaustion is so called because one thinks of the areas measured expanding so that they account for more and more of the required area. Archimedes made one of the greatest contributions of the Greek. One advancement he made was to show that the area of a segment of a parabola is 4/3 the area of a triangle with the same base and vertex and 2/3 of the area of the circumscribed parallelogram. Archimedes also “invented” the volume and surface area of a sphere, the volume and area of a cone, the surface area of an ellipse, and the volume of any segment of a parabolic. No progress or advancements were made in calculus until the 17th century. One great mathematician that was born in Barsa, Persia is Abu Ali-Hasan ibn al-Haytham. He integrated a fourth-degree polynomial. In the 3rd century AD Liu Hui of China used the method of exhaustion in order to fin the area of a circle. In the 5th century AD Zu Chongzhi also used it to find the volume of a sphere. In the 12th century Bhaskara II of India developed an early derivative representing infinitesimal change and described an early form of “Rolle’s theorem”. Seki Kowa expanded the method of exhaustion in the early 17th century in Japan. In AD 1668 James Gregory provided a special case of the second fundamental theorem of calculus.

Some applications of calculus are used by biologist, electrical engineers, architects, space flight engineers, statisticians, graphic artist and so much more. Biologists use differential calculus. They use it to determine the exact rate of growth in a bacterial culture when different variables are changed such as...

...“The Contribution of Calculus in the Social Progress”
The history of calculus falls into several distinct time periods, most notably the ancient, medieval, and modern periods. The ancient period introduced some of the ideas of integral calculus, but does not seem to have developed these ideas in a rigorous or systematic way. Calculating volumes and areas, the basic function of integral calculus, can be traced back to the Egyptian...

Calculus in Medicine
Calculus is the mathematical study of changes (Definition). Calculus is also used as a method of calculation of highly systematic methods that treat problems through specialized notations such as those used in differential and integral calculus. Calculus is used on a variety of levels such as the field of banking, data analysis, and as I will...

Calculus:
Calculus (Latin, calculus, a small stone used for counting) is a branch of mathematics focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. This subject constitutes a major part of modern mathematics education. It has two major branches, Differential Calculus and Integral Calculus, which are related by the fundamental theorem of calculus.
Calculus is the...

...How the calculus was invented?
Calculus, historically known as infinitesimal calculus, is a mathematical discipline focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. Ideas leading up to the notions of function, derivative, and integral were developed throughout the 17th century, but the decisive step was made by Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz. Publication of Newton's main treatises took many years, whereas Leibniz...

Ever since men felt the need to count, the history of calculus begins, which together with Mathematics is one of the oldest and most useful science. Since men felt that need for counting objects, this need led to the creation of systems that allowed them to maintain control of their properties. They initially did it with the use of fingers, legs, or...

...CALCULUSCalculus is the study of change which focuses on limits, functions, derivaties, integrals, and infinite series. There are two main branches of calculus: differential calculus and integral calculus, which are connected by the fundamental theorem of calculus. It was discovered by two different men in the seventeenth century. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz – a self taught German mathematician – and Isaac...
