Ch 1.4: Historical Remarks The development of differential equations is a significant part of the general development of mathematics. Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was born in England, and is known for his development of calculus and laws of physics (mechanics), series solution to ODEs, 1665 –1690. Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716) was born in Leipzig, Germany. He is known for his development of calculus (1684), notation for the derivative ( dy / dx ), method separation of variables (1691), first order ODE methods (1694).

The Bernoullis Jakob Bernoulli (1654-1705) & Johann Bernoulli (1667-1748) were both raised in Basel, Switzerland. They used calculus and integrals in the form of differential equations to solve mechanics problems. Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782), son of Johann, is known for his work on partial differential equations and applications, and Bessel functions.
